I want to start off this article by saying that I think it is very important to learn how to accept your body for all of its flaws.
Far too many people obsess about things others probably don’t even notice.
Now that we got that out of the way, make no mistake, modern feminism’s end goal has always been to destroy the family and the natural differences between genders so that humans are reduced to replaceable, State-dependent cogs in a corporate machine.
To our parents’ generation, feminism’s promises of economic independence and sex without consequence may have sounded alluring, but now we know better. It has not liberated women at all, but created a society of barren, emotionally distant cubicle shrews brainwashed into dismantling their one true source of happiness and lasting contentment — that of supporting a strong family and husband.
Contrary to popular belief, the fat acceptance movement has been around in the United States for some time, first being birthed in the 1960’s, when many, many discrete groups began to organize around identity politics. The movement is a strong mix of narcissism and female-centrism.
A Brief History Of the Movement
Consider a brief history of the movement. The first documented fat acceptance acceptance event happened in New York City in 1967. The participants dubbed it a “fat-in” at a restaurant and consumed many, many pints of ice cream. Later that same summer, the first nation-wide movement, which eventually become the National Association For The Advancement Of Fat People (NAAFA). This time period is generally referred to first-wave fat acceptance.
For a brief period of time, moving lockstep with other identity political groups, a militant arm of the movement coalesced into the “Fat Underground,” a radical feminist-allied movement whose rallying cry was, “a diet is a cure that doesn’t work, for a disease that doesn’t exist.” The movement never gained much steam as they called for violence against perceived fatphobia.
Accordingly, as American’s waistlines expanded, the movement gained ground. This time period has been called second-wave fat acceptance, as Americans needed explanations for their decreasing physical attractiveness & increasingly poor health. Mainstream outlets began to run some sympathetic literature, mostly just viciously attacking the medical establishment & perceived fatphobia of the media at large.
Fat acceptance is currently thought to be the in third wave, which coincides with the birth of the Internet & blogging. Tumblr, online feminist webzines & WordPress have been credited with advancing the cause.
The Destruction of Western Women
So, how does the fat positive/acceptance movement fit into the greater scheme of things? As one of feminism’s specialized branches, it aids in the dissolution of traditional relationships from the position of normalizing gluttony as well as encouraging a hysterical, impossible-to-be-helped mindset, thus driving away potential mates.
The result of my “studies” is that fat feminists are the most emotionally unstable women I’ve ever seen, and that they have dug themselves the deepest into the fake victim narrative. They are so sensitive and stubborn about their addiction and live in such wretched denial that they have recently begun to attack the medical profession itself. Doctors who offer concerned, fact-based advice to obese patients are now guilty of “medical fat-shaming,” which is to be treated as another form of “oppression.”
Fat acceptance is a victim cult that oils the gears of the feminist movement’s main goal of achieving complete social revolution through the destruction of the family. As I wrote earlier, I was stuck in fat acceptance’s vortex of contradicting messages for a year while in a stale relationship to a video-game addict. The movement’s relentless cries of “Love yourself!” and “Don’t let anyone tell you what’s beautiful!” are easy to absorb for someone stuck in a rut or with more serious problems of self-worth, but they are ultimately hollow messages, lies. Loving yourself does not mean turning your back on other people’s well-intentioned concerns. Loving yourself does not mean slinking off to the store to buy a shopping basket full of chips and chocolate and binge-eating it all in secrecy. Loving yourself does not mean ignoring the number on the scale. Loving yourself does not make you feel sick, guilty, and furtive, nor should it require you to deny scientific facts and value feelings over rationality.
The cruelest aspect of the fat positive movement is that in-between those positive-sounding mantras are nefarious politically-tinged contrivances like “thin privilege” designed to make fat people feel helpless and under attack, and thus long even more for the temporary highs gotten from macaroni casserole and the blogs that say “You’re amazing no matter what you do!”
Take the following incident as a good example of the dark side of fat acceptance. A man was recently featured on the popular Facebook group Humans of New York, speaking fairly and honestly about asking his girlfriend to lose some weight. In response, the man was abused by hundreds of harpies, and a writer for the deranged feminist blog Revelist called him a “delusional bag of dicks” and “a misogynistic turd,” and suggested that his girlfriend dump the “body-shaming troll dragging her down.”
In the current West, a man must accept his woman 100% no matter what she does or says, and if he has even the smallest concern or request, it means he is forcing oppressive patriarchal standards on her. The woman, on the other hand, is encouraged to react as rudely as possible, and with a childish “fuck you, dad!” mentality spend the next three months shoveling good girl treats into her face and posting selfies of her ever-expanding flesh in lingerie with the hashtag #celebratemysize.
In the end, am I saying that fat people are horrible, undeserving of love, and should only wear baggy sweatshirts in public? Of course not. We are all valuable, but there’s a difference between overindulging in a selfish, worldly love, and adhering to a love that is founded on moral (Godly) principles and on the will to better oneself for the sake of loved ones. Not everyone should be the same weight, nor should we all worship Instagram models and get plastic surgery.
Simply put: allowing gluttony to get out of hand will severely harm our bodies and mental health. Being unrepentantly obese is not a virtue, and allowing political movements like fat acceptance to twist our views of right and wrong will leave us full of regret.
Don’t forget — underneath fat acceptance’s innocent-sounding slogans of “accept me for who I am!” is a larger movement designed to strip women of their natural female virtues and use them as tools in an anti-family, anti-male political revolution.
How Obesity Became Part of Black Culture
African-Americans are the most obese group in the United States and it may be by choice.
According to data from 2010, among African-Americans 20 years and older, more than two-thirds were overweight or obese— defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 25 pounds or more (h). According to BMI charts, a woman who is 5-feet 5 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds is considered overweight. A man who stands at 5-feet 8 inches is considered overweight once he hits 175 pounds. What is often considered normal is actually unhealthy.
Carrying around those extra pounds increases the likelihood of developing type II diabetes and high blood pressure — two diseases that disproportionately affect African-Americans. Being overweight also increases the risk of stroke, heart disease, arthritis and certain cancers. In fact, obesity could become more dangerous for your health than smoking cigarettes.
Yet, in the African-American community, the so-called normal body image is skewed toward the unhealthy. Studies show a strong tendency to deem larger body sizes as acceptable, particularly for women.
“Many African-American women view being obese as part of their culture,” says Thaddeus Bell, M.D., a family practitioner in South Carolina, in an online interview for icyou.com.
It is understood within the African-American community that curvy, overweight women are considered more appealing to black men than normal- or under-weight women. There is almost a reverse distortion of body image — with thicker women fighting weight-loss and slender women wanting to gain weight in order to be accepted.
This may account for the staggering statistic that 4 out of 5 African-American women are overweight or obese. It is even more alarming that some of these women are making a choice to live at an unhealthy weight.
African-American women of all ages report less exercise than their white counterparts. “Many of them feel that it’s not feminine or they’re afraid to sweat because it will ruin their hairstyle,” adds Dr. Bell. Other hindrances include not having child care, not having enough time to be physically active, and not feeling safe being active in their neighborhoods.
African-American men aren’t off the hook either. African-American men also exercise less than white women, and have the highest prevalence of obesity among all male ethnic groups.
However, African-American men are more active than their female counterparts, which may be the reason that only 28.8 percent are obese, compared to 50.8 percent of African-American women.
With the head of the African-American family — the matriarch — more likely to be overweight and sedentary, it is no surprise that many black men and children are also overweight. Regular exercise, portion-control and healthy eating habits are not routinely ingrained into the structure of African-American families.
One in four African-American girls and almost one in five African-American boys are overweight. We are now beginning to see high blood pressure and type II diabetes — historically diseases of adulthood — in these overweight children. Seven out of every 10 overweight adolescents will become overweight adults. That number increases to eight if one or more parents is also overweight. Thus, the cycle continues.
The “soul food” tradition adds to the problem in some African-American households. Most of the recipes are passed down from generation to generation, usually from families who originated from the southern states. There is a strong social component to this style of cooking, centered around family gatherings or opportunities for the family’s matriarch to show her love for the family. However, traditional soul food is often cooked with fat, sugar and unhealthy amounts of salt that contribute to weight gain and high blood pressure. Ironically, soul food is often considered “good food,” as compared to fast-food, so the perception of healthy food choices are also skewed.
Even among those families who desire to eat healthier, doing so may not be economically feasible. One in four African-Americans still live in poverty, and there is a strong correlation between low income and obesity. Many impoverished neighborhoods do not even have an accessible grocery store with affordable, healthy options. It’s not hard to imagine that tasty, inexpensive fast-food beats out the cost and taste of lean meat, fresh fruits and vegetables.
Fat acceptance has a long history in the United States, but only recently exploded as left-wing friendly platforms such as Tumblr and Reddit began to become popular.
The claims made reek of a supreme level of privilege, as only people in a late-capitalist society could possibly be able to complain about their poor choices in diet and exercise need to be validated by authority figures in the media. Not only that, but they are not seeking simply acceptance, but worship. While some some of the talk revolves around body equity with skinny people, the true end-goal is with referring to fat as “beautiful.”
They are not seeking to be seen as average, but as gorgeous and models. Sure, they lash out defensively talking about their intense self-hatred and poor body image, but that is attention-seeking behavior to get others to worship their looks and reaffirm their personal delusions about attractiveness and sexual value.
While movements like this are part and parcel of any narcissistic society — notice it started in the 60’s with other identity-based movements — the truth it is woefully misinformed about basic science and biology. It exists as a stopgap between the fat activist’s own self-hatred and their complete inability to change. They need defenses to exist in order to deny any true change of the self.
I have no doubt that people exist that are completely happy with being overweight. Those people would never identify with the fat acceptance movement.
