What is all this about thin privilege and body positivity?
Why is it that obese people can talk about us skinny girls, Saying things like "Skinny b*tches" Or "twig b*tch" I mean whatever. If we call them fat or whales, or fatty, all of a sudden we're the bad guy? It seems that some obese people have this entitled spoiled deluded attitude now. I think it's insane. Here's the behavior I observed from watching them in interviews and debates.
They believe they are a victim.
They have no self responsibility.
They are very entitled.
They have an excuse for everything.
That's some of my opinions, not a fact.
Let's break it all down...
1. Their "victim mentality"
First off the only victim here is your body! I feel that obese people are now blaming others for their on doing.
"I can't fly on the airplane the seats are too small."
"I can't go to the doctor without being lectured."
"None of the clothes fit me
I can't go shopping."
Oh poor me.
It's not the seat it's you ever think you're too big for the seat? You need to listen to your doctor! I bet he/she is telling you no wrong. Once again you're too big for the clothes! Work out and get healthy again! Then you can wear whatever you want. It's not anyone's to accommodate your ridiculous size.
2. "The "It's not me it's society thing"
This goes back to what I said above. If you're obese and reading this you need to understand, that it is your fault you are this way. I know you don't want to hear that but it is the truth. No, one forced you to eat all that food. You did this to yourself. You know what you can also do for yourself? Snap out of it! Get up! Work out! Cut back on the food!
You got yourself into this. Now you can get yourself out of it. It is no one else's fault or job to praise or enable your unhealthy habits. The change starts with you. All this blaming "the world isn't made for people like me." "Seats on the plane should be bigger." "Clothes should be bigger." All the complaining isn't going to make you any skinnier or healthier. You are obese accept that and change. Your own obesity is your own problem, find your own solution.
3. "Everything should fit my needs"
I don't know where this attitude came from? Why on earth should I accept you being unhealthy? There is a fine line between just being a little overweight and just flat out obese. I will support overweight and obese people who are working out, and trying to get back in shape. Not the ones who believe that we should enable and accommodate them. Nope, not going to happen. We should not change seat sizes for you. We should not male anything bigger. We would just be enabling them. Why would they need to change when everything is perfect for them? Than they will just stay unhealthy. What would motivate them?
4. Excuses Excuses...
"I can't work out I don't have the time." You had time to stuff your face with that burger. You had time to lay around and watch TV. I'm so sick of excuses. You either want to be healthy or you don't. If you choose to stay obese you are at a risk of health problems. You know that and you still have no lack of respect for your health. You'd rather put off eating healthy and working out regularly. To being at risk of a heart attack, heart disease, Type two diabetes, high blood pressure and many more. Stop making excuses! You need to get the job done.
That's my two cents. Also with this whole "Body positivity" thing. It is praised by tons of hypocrites. They want to talk about acceptance yet a lot of them are dragging other skinny bodies down. I give up on the world. We might as well praise Drug addicts and alcoholics. Obese people are right up there with them, and some of us praise them. All I'm saying is You're obese YOU. So YOU do something about it.
Okay, I'm finished. Just need to give some tough love. I support those who are willing to change for the better. If you are one of those people who want to do better for yourself. Good! ^_^ I applaud and support you 100%. Please keep going and don't stop!
This is my first mytake! Sorry if it seems a little amateur (It is) I tried my best to write this hopefully I grow more as a writer and journalist as I continue to put out these articles. Keep in my mind this is my opinion. Sorry if I offended anyone not my intention but I do not sugar coat things.
Thank you if you read through all of this! Please share your thoughts in the comments. All opinions are welcome here.
