I want to start off this article by saying that I think it is very important to learn how to accept your body for all of its flaws. Far too many people obsess about things others probably don’t even notice. Through that obsession severe and possibly life altering insecurities form.
Sometimes it’s something benign like not smiling because of crooked teeth; other times it can be something far more harmful such as anorexia or bulimia.
That being said, just because I think you should accept your body does not mean you shouldn’t work on improving it if necessary. What we have now in this modern world is the complete opposite; we have the fat acceptance movement.
Oh lord who giveth thy gains, why must this shit be a thing?
The fat acceptance movement, which I imagine was started by some pissed off, chunky, lumpy ass having Lena Dunham feminist type is absolutely awful. It’s not awful in the message that you should love yourself the way you are; it’s awful in the supporting of unhealthy life choices.
So get your short pink lesbian but not a lesbian haircut, black rimmed glasses, and bucket of gluten free fried chicken, because we are going to discuss why the fat acceptance movement is complete bullshit.
6 Reasons Why The Fat Acceptance Movement Is Rubbish
1. Fit Shaming
As this is a bodybuilding site, I want to start by discussing how the fat acceptance movement affects the bro’s. (Also, it’s not just the ladies that have adopted the fat acceptance lifestyle.)
I’ve seen countless post where guys, and ladies, in the fitness community have been completely shamed, mocked, and lied about just because they have posted a fitness selfie.
To the people who make fun of others because they workout, eat a pile of raccoon johnsons.
You will see these fat fucks make the arbitrary steroid comments, but that’s usually only the start. They will talk about how these people have “no life” because they “only spend their time working out.”
They will say these fitness people must be miserable because they have such strict diets.
And the one that really kills me is when they say they would never want to look like these “freaks” and are happy with their “normal” bodies.
First off, it’s not the Olympia guys I’m referring to, they are talking about the normal fitness models who are far healthier looking.
Second, if you say you would never want to look like them, it’s not because you don’t want to, it’s because you fucking can’t; it’s hard to look like that. It takes work, determination, and a lifestyle of willpower to look like fitness models. If you say you are happy with your dumpy body, good, but don’t act like you are better than them because you are “normal” looking and not a “freak.”
It’s easy to look normal; it takes no fucking effort. So instead of putting down people who like to look and feel good, just go and eat a bucket of panda dongs.
2. Normalizing Unhealthy Lifestyles
What really pisses me off about all of this new fat acceptance is that it supports the idea that being a blubbery blob of fucking lard is normal. It is not! And you are not just harming yourself when you normalize your shitty lifestyle by promoting it to the world.
We are going to end up with a generation of fat lazy entitled shitheads who think they are “special” and deserving of anything they want. They won’t want to work hard for anything, nor will they believe they should have to.
They will grow up in a world where gluttony is socially acceptable, as are the physical and emotional consequences of said gluttony, and they will believe that it normal.
How sad is that future? A generation of fat victims who think the world owes them something.
Not to mention that these fat lumps of dog shit will grow in number and statistically speaking, some will possibly become the people who govern the laws about food and health; meaning all the water in the future very well might end up being Brawndo. (It’s got what plants crave.)
Seriously though, future fat Deputy Commissioner of the FDA who inevitably causes a worldwide health epidemic, go eat a duffel bag full of squirrel penis.
3. Healthy Becomes Abnormal
Healthy people will become a minority if the fat acceptance movement were to actually take off in a major way, which it never will, because most people don’t have the desire to not be able to see their own genitals without a mirror.
Even so, we are looking at a future where being healthy (or healthism as some fatties call it.) will be something to be looked down upon. It has already started to a degree.
Whenever I buy food I always get asked the stupidest questions, and made fun of for the healthy food I buy. I get lean meats, vegetables, and fruit, and I always get the snarky “Oh you eat healthy don’t you?” like it’s some kind of weird perverted thing.
That’s not even bizarre food or anything.
It’s just these gelatinous buffoons aren’t used to seeing anything that doesn’t come in a box with the word “pizza” somewhere in the title. I just don’t understand why these unhealthy slobs feel like they have to talk down to people who don’t choose to indulge in constant junk food binges.
How is it that fit healthy people are starting to become the ones who are to be ridiculed? I’m not saying fat shaming is good, but at least when you make fun of fat people it is because being fat Is SUPPOSE to be a negative thing.
If you reverse that and are saying being in good shape is negative, well that’s just moronic. My girlfriend and I both got teased on separate occasions by some living baconator because we bought starfruit.
It’s not some mystery item that has weird voodoo sex powers that give you unlimited life time boners, it’s just a fucking fruit. That is the kind of condescending bullshit that makes me hate the fat acceptance crap.
You shouldn’t make fun of people because of their bodies anyway, but how the fuck do you have the balls to mock an in shape person while you yourself look like a melted hippo?
Go eat a suitcase full of emu peckers.
4. It’s Used as an Excuse
The fat acceptance movement is used more as an excuse to be unhealthy than anything. The promoters of this crap say it’s because they believe you should love yourself, fat is beautiful, people are unhealthily obsessed with health, and all of this other garbage, but in the end it’s all just a cover up; a cover up for the fact that most of these people are too lazy and undisciplined to take care of themselves.
You know what one thing most fat people have in common? They all have tried to lose weight at some point in their lives. At some point, after failing and failing, they stumble upon this fat acceptance stuff and decide that they are fine.
Firstly, I would like to say I really feel for the people who try and try but just can’t lose the weight properly. That sucks ass and genetics can really be a bitch. But adopting a fat supporting lifestyle is the worst thing you can fucking do.
Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attacks, early preventable death, grieving families, is this all accepted by the fat acceptance assholes too? Because that’s what you fucking get when living a life of cheeseburgers and extra value meals.
How about ordering a side of concealed giraffe tallywhackers to eat next time you order out.
5. It’s Not Really About Loving Yourself
Here’s a shocker, the fat acceptance movement is less about loving yourself and more about not caring what others think. Which to an extent is okay, except these people very obviously care about what others think.
How do I know?
Because they never shut the fuck up about it. “My haters this my haters that, real men love meat not bones, real men love curves.” Yeah, curves, not chicks who look like a fucking golf ball.
And if you don’t care about what others think than why are you posting all of this shit anyway? Go eat a tampon box filled with gopher willies.
6. There Is No Acceptance
If I hate you for being fat and you hate me for my muscles, where is the acceptance? If I can’t make fun of you than you shouldn’t be able to make fun of me.
Also, if you truly accept yourself, you shouldn’t have to broadcast it all over the place. I don’t go around talking about how I’m in great shape and I love my body the way it is, so why the fuck do you constantly bring up fat shaming and loving your own fat ass?
Fat acceptance is just made up bullshit for overweight people to feel they have some control over their bodies and the way other people perceive their bodies. I know fat people who don’t talk about their bodies and they don’t talk about other people.
There will always be assholes that make fun of fat people but you don’t need a whole movement directed at making those assholes feel shitty about themselves in retaliation. If you find yourself seeking others out for the sole purpose of making them feel bad about their bodies, just go and gobble down a sombrero full of armadillo schlongs.
Instead of focusing so much energy on body image, how about just focusing on trying to be healthy. You don’t need to be a fitness model or anything.
Try starting small and focus on living longer and more comfortably. Instead of shitting on people for showing off their progress pics, worry about your own diet and lifestyle.
Instead of accepting being fat, how about accepting the fact that you hold the power to change your life for the positive. You don’t need a movement to improve your life. You can do it yourself with a little bit of drive, determination, and willpower.
Or you can just continue acting like being fat is just fine while rubbing everyone’s noses in it. If that’s the case just go and eat a submarine full of colossal squid dicks.
