uhhh no. there is nothing wrong with being curvy, but when you’re obese and have health problems, it is no longer body positivity. i am all for being proud of your body, but not to the point when it risks your life because of heart problems, joint problems, etc. fuck this post.
Shut up shut up shut up shut up SHUT UP.
A great example of how fat acceptance will not win fat rights through the channel of “body positivity.”
When you include a privileged group in an activist space they have an incentive to stratify the group to privilege them.
Fuck thin people in fat acceptance spaces. You do not get to dictate terms. You should be asking fat people what’s what, and/or just shutting the fuck up for once.
The first rule of ALLY CLUB: You do not talk in ALLY CLUB.
The second rule of ALLY CLUB: You DO NOT TALK in ALLY CLUB.
The third rule of ALLY CLUB: If a marginalized person says STOP, the argument is over.
The fourth rule of ALLY CLUB: Ganging up on marginalized people and/or their blogs with a bunch of your privileged buddies means you’re out of ALLY CLUB. If marginalized people come after you in droves? YOU’VE FUCKED UP. APOLOGIZE. DON’T EXPECT TO BE FORGIVEN.
The fifth rule of ALLY CLUB: If you ping a bunch of marginalized people with the same bullshit “honest question, guise!” then you’re out of ALLY CLUB and automatically inducted into TROLL CLUB.
The sixth rule of ALLY CLUB: No “what about me,” no “but privileged people don’t have perfect lives, either.”
The seventh rule of ALLY CLUB: If you fuck with marginalized people you do not get to say when the argument is over. It’s over when the marginalized people you fucked with say it’s over.
The eighth rule of ALLY CLUB: If this is your first time reading a social justice blog run by a certain group of marginalized people, DO NOT SUBMIT SHIT.
