Posts Tagged ‘Real Women’

We’ve had a long running thread over at http://www.myfatspouse.com which includes the attachments of “motivational” posters, ridiculing various FA tenets.  They vary from the profound, to the truly tasteless.  I thought I would post a few here that are relevant.

According to an Sarcastic Antifat Acceptance Blogger

Anorexia: A very common condition that results in the deaths of MILLIONS of women each year. The primary cause is skinny models, and Hollywood waifs.

Bing Eating: A term that is used to describe a non existent condition.

Comment Section: A section of a blog where adherents post loud praise for the fat acceptance blog author’s post .

Dan Savage: The most evil man alive!

Diet: An extreme form of calorie restriction that occasionally results in temporary weight loss. This activity poses a high risk or causing anorexia.

Diet Industry: An evil Cabal of Jews, Trilaterialists, and late night infomercial advertisers who are attempting to dominate the world through manipulating health studies to encourage the sale of hoodia, and frozen meal entrees.

Douchehound: An intellectual term that Kate Harding uses to describe those who she particularly disagrees with.

Exercise: Strenuous physical activity, often engaged in by fat acceptance types, for example: playing with Cats. However, exercise has not been shown to result in weight loss. In fact many Fat Acceptance adherents exercised 2 hours a day with no results while eating nothing but lettuce, and found that no weight loss occurred.

Fat Acceptance Has Two PersonalitiesThe Fat Acceptance movement has two faces. The public face it shows to open audiences when at a TV interview or interacting with the world outside of the fat o sphere, and then there is the true face, that we only see on size acceptance blogs, especially in the comments sections. From what I can tell, this isn’t done purposely or consciously. When Fat Acceptance steps out on the public forum it sounds completely reasonable and justified. However when a Fat Blogger makes it back home to her blog, she turns into something quite different.

FA’s public message is one of “acceptance” of fat people. “Acceptance,” by FA’s definition means discouraging name calling, and stopping fatty bashing. More importantly they want to challenge prejudices against fat people, like the presumption that the obese are gluttonous and lazy. The public face of fat acceptance is hard to disagree with. The “Fat but Fit” message is stretching it, but with the majority of Americans sporting some extra lard it isn’t hard to sell.

Chloe Marshall Is a Real Woman

Since the world found out that Chloe Marshall would be a candidate in the Miss England beauty competition there has been quite a stir. For those of you who don’t know, Chloe is a 17 year old plus sized model who is 5′ 10″ and weighs a 176 lbs. None are prouder and more defensive of her success than the members of the Fat Acceptance crowd. With Miss Marshall’s pictures in the news the Fatosphere has once again begun crowing about the virtues of Real Women.

This Real Woman nomenclature begs a whole host of questions. First what exactly is a Real Woman? Does this make all other women inferior? Finally, if there are Real Women, what is a Real Man? Even though the answers can’t be found spelled out concisely in thousands and thousands of Fat Acceptance Blogs some hints can be found. Reading them, as I dreadfully have to do, some clues can be found in subtle innuendo, and others through intentional omission.
