honestly wasn’t expecting that post to be repesctful
They still took a picture of this person without their permission, posted it on the internet, and called them a fatty. Yeah, i dont exactly find that respectful.
They also assume that bc the person is fat, they must hate themselves and want to be thin. They assume that the person is fat because they ate or drank too much or were lazy for some period before they began exercising. They aren’t showing respect to a fat person, they’re showing respect to a potential thin person.
reblogging for the last two comments. the post from the asshole with thin privilege is extremely disrespectful.
Wow, what a twist from the OP! You think think they are being an invasive fat shaming asshole, but THEN you realize that all along they were actually being an invasive fat shaming asshole who self-righteously feels like they should be congratulated for it because they think their abuse is inspiration. Quite the reversal!
What kind of dipshit thinks that was respectful on ANY level? That was some self-congratulatory, fatphobic, patronizing garbage.
YES - COMPLETELY PATRONIZING SHITTY FAT-SHAMING POMPOUS FESTERING DOGVOMIT is what that FB post was. I was screaming internally for weeks when friends (of all sizes) kept posting it.
Lemme just translate again:
"Awww. ChubbyFatsoThunderThighs! Look at you! You are out running IN PUBLIC even though you must be (and should be) MORTIFIED by your ugly, fat, UNACCEPTABLE self. But guess what? Just like I am not the same as the other mean thin folks, you are not the same as the other disgusting lardasses. That’s because I am being nice and patting you on the head (good doggie!), and you are at least making SOME EFFORT to CHANGE YOURSELF IN A WAY THAT BETTER SUITS MY WORLDVIEW and misinformed media-fed pseudo-scientific opinions on what is healthy or beautiful or even acceptable."
Run your run, do your thing, maybe get a clue that the world does not revolve around scales and tape measures.
And while you are at it, educate yourself on the lies you’ve been told about weight as a universal health risk (and the billion-dollar industries that perpetuate them).
