This man’s face
You can tell she has a Tumblr.
his face is my hero
there was a doctor at the end of this video who I wish with all my heart had more time to speak because he was about to lay down some serious stuff and was not having any of those idiots bullshit.
From the same video.
"It’s really hard to exercise."
When TiTP meets reality and realizes there isn’t a ‘report’ or ‘block’ button outside of their echo chamber.
The fat activist never replied to the guy’s question. Her cop-outs are bullshit because
1) Thin people get asked if they’re healthy alllllllllllllllll the time, trust me, especially if they’re in the lower part of the normal BMI spectrum or somewhat underweight - or mildly overweight, which is thin by your standards. This thing was about fat acceptance so of course the questions are going to be directed to YOU, and not random thin people
2) Everyone makes general, superficial judgements about other people by their appearance to some degree, and I don’t mean just their looks, but all the way in which they present themselves, their clothes, their attitudes, their voice, their haircut, their personal hygiene. It is possible to make a wrong call, but the exceptions are not the norm. What bothers me when it comes to this is that no one complaints when, for example, a girl is accused of having an ED and told she’s gross because she’s too thin, or celebrate when men are told it is okay if women treat them as potential rapists, but the “oppressed” can never be judged. We judge everyone, or we judge no one. Take your pic and stick to it.
3) If a country has universal healthcare, then yes, I think one has a moral obligation to be as healthy as possible. Because when you’re unhealthy, you’re costing other people’s money, and you’re draining resources that could go to people with diseases that can’t be treated by eating less and moving more.
The other fat activist didn’t present a real argument against what the doctor said after he dispelled the ‘my genetics’ excuse being used as one. Don’t want to exercise? Do something easy first, then slowly progress into harder things. Walking, then jogging a bit, then jumping jacks, then slow running. Lifting small weights, then lifting big weights and using your own bodyweight. Squat with a box or chair. Go up and down stairs. Ride a bike and walk instead of driving. These are all extremely basic and simple daily activities that will help burn the energy excess. But unfortunately, all of them imply WILLFULNESS and CONSISTENCY, and ain’t nobody got time for that when we can just take a selfie and get instantaneous Tumblr validation!
