People from low income backgrounds aren't overweight because of ignorance and lack of education. That's so patronising; people know that eating too much junk makes you gain weight. Most people are not this obsessed with being thin and would rather find comfort in food and be a bit overweight. And a lot of people are under pressure, stressed or unhappy and overeat for comfort.

This is why I am not on tiktok and if I was my response to that line of BS would likely get me kicked off ...who tf came up with that in the first place ? Personally I never see anything wrong with anyone other than myself.

yeah there's been this thing in body posi online spaces lately, making all eating disorders seem like we are focused on fat people's bodies and nothing else lol

And like we weren't misinterpreted as narcissists enough as it is

ugh thats so dumb!! and like even past bulimia and anorexia, BED, orthorexia, arfid, and so many others that arent rooted in even internalized fatphobia. i hate the way ppl group all eds as just a bunch of skinny ppl who hate fat ppl because its not at all like this!!


And even when it is like anorexia it’s usually not like “I saw a skinny model in a magazine guess I’ll starve to be PrEtTY” like people in HAES want to think it is. We can’t cure this just by looking at body positivity websites. For me it’s more like “bones=self control, fat=the opposite”. Fucked but what can you do? If this was all just about not being obese, wouldn’t people not care to lose weight past a BMI of 20?

Totally. I mean women in general do it, but they compare themselves to anorexia to make themselves look more tragic.

 

Anorexia is quite different, probably the opposite.

Right lmao. I mean women in general can be weird + shitty but it's next-level with them and THEY NEVER LISTEN when people call them out.

I really don’t think that weird or shitty is a female specific behavior, personally I’ve heard of far more weird/shitty dudes. I think that with fat activists though, some are super self absorbed, others are just ignorant as hell.

Agreed. And no you most definitely cannot be cured by "body positivity" quite the opposite. Honestly looking at those people plus they're shitty attitude makes me starve more.

And there's no shortage of them, I wonder why there's been so many relapses since obesity becomes more common.

not fatphobic

that's like saying that fat people are skinny shamers for existing. It makes no sense
