basically anyone who vilifies “overweight” people for being a drain on the NHS can literally eat my shit for eternity

Anyone vilifying anyone for seeking the services they need to maintain or improve their health doesn’t even deserve the privilege of eating my shit.

Anonymous asked: how are people complaining about you being unhealthy when the picture shows you eating (what looks like) A FUCKING HEALTHY MEAL???? like seriously??????????????/

Yeah it is kinda funny. That meal was rice with sesame bbq sauce with tofu onion and green bell pepper. We had an extra order of edamame beans. Thing is though, I and anyone else should be able to eat whatever they want without shame.

There are so many factors at play here, and the lessons to learn are that not only is ‘health’ individualised and hard to pin-point, but it is also not a sign of morality or worth. The feeling that it is is highly ableist. Some factors include stuff like (but not limited to):

- Access to ‘healthy’ foods is limited by socio-economic factors
- Fast food is a necessary option for some people unable to cook through ill health or lack of time/childcare/multiple jobs/long commutes
- Things like sweets/candy can basically be medicine for people with low blood sugar/diabetes
- High vegetable, high fibre diets can be contraindicated in some illnesses, for instance including sub-types of IBS, so you have no idea what’s going on for an individual.
- Enjoying food and not consistently worrying about it promotes good/better mental health in a society where doing so is wrought with difficulties and we are told shame is a virtue.

On that last one, I want anyone reading to note that ‘not worrying about food’ might be a life long journey for some people and that they are not to blame for this. I advocate body positivity but that cannot be placed on the individual, there must be a societal shift. Individuals are not to blame for a fucked up society (other than the ruling classes, ofc).

I’m here, I’m queer, I’m chubby and idgaf.

[My girlfriend was the director of these photos that’s why I’m so goofy]

Shamelessly reblogging myself as a resistance to the voices in my head from years past telling me to lose weight. New Year sucks for this as it’s everywhere.

I’ve put on more weight since these pictures and I still like how I look [weight wise - I mean bodily gender dysphoria is a whole different ballgame].

And again for having people telling me they don’t care if I kill myself [from eating?] but they don’t want to see it/I’m disgusting/need to close my legs etc etc. Bye.

The law is an adroit mixture of customs that are beneficial to society, and could be followed even if no law existed, and others that are of advantage to a ruling minority, but harmful to the masses of men, and can be enforced on them only by terror.

[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]

Here I am glorifying obesity as a response to the ‘Women Eating on Tubes’ fb group that shames women for eating in public. I’m consistently read as a woman and have had my body commented on many times by strangers and they can all gtfo. #babeseatinginpublic #feministswhoeatwhereverthefucktheywant

You’re glorifying a deadly illness and you feel proud of yourself?

Could you please at least close your legs?

And I love how THIS commenter is too stupid to get that it’s clearly a reference to guys sitting on the tube with their legs spread as wide as they can go.

Yup. People other than white cis men are expected to take up as little space as possible, both physically and in public life. We’re supposed to contain our bodies so that they are pleasing objects. Part of this restriction means that so much of our energy is taken up by counting calories and fighting the fatigue this brings physically and mentally that we have no time to simply enjoy life, or to actively resist. We are supposed to keep our sexualities hidden - whether that is simply asserting our sexual autonomy or being queer.

They can pretend it’s about ‘health’ however much they want but there is nothing positive about hating yourself and your body, of purposely starving yourself - NOT that anyone who has any issues with their body is to blame, they absolutely are not. Mental health issues are never our fault.

The diet industry makes billions of dollars in profit and diets do not work. You cannot tell someone’s health from looking at them, and even if you could, every person and every body is inherently worthy and valuable and I refuse to engage in healthism.

Let’s be honest about what this is - people hate seeing someone who is no longer constantly broken down. What are you so afraid of?

Body positivity is great but yeah why glorify something that kills people?

Because body shaming is bullshit and fuck you

Lmao “body shaming” OP is literally glorifying a disease it’s pathetic

Ahahaha. No.

Currently receiving a lot of uh, ‘responses’ to my picture. Torn between not giving a fuck (I do not need to justify my body or my health to anyone) or totally ripping them apart with facts. Thing is, I want to sit in the sun and eat my delicious breakfast and I don’t want anything to get in the way of that.

I searched the ‘hitchhiking' tag on tumblr, and it's mostly pictures of people hitchhiking without pants. I pretty much always have pants. I dunno what it means. I dunno what anything means.

At first I thought it was sort of funny, then when I thought about it for more than a second I found it really worrying as there’s the obvious implication that you’d owe the driver sex for a lift…
