    Fat Acceptance

    It's one of those movements today that sounds fine on paper, but the proponents mostly sound as if they're insane. If you want me to respect that some of us like to eat more, have less control over their fat, et cetera, I can accept that. That doesn't seem like something I should really even have to think about; I would think that comes with being a decent human being. But that doesn't seem to be what's actually being supported. It seems more like they want me to accept being 300 pound blobs as normal. That might not be the way they want me to take their message, but that's the way they make it sound to me.

    Let's make something clear. If you are so large that you're a large obstacle when people are moving around, there's a problem. If watching you sit down makes me wonder if you're going to break the furniture, there's a problem. If your body needs two seats instead of one, there's a problem. Any situation where your sheer mass causes or threatens to cause problems for someone else is indicative of a problem. We shouldn't treat you like scum of the Earth and we should try to be as helpful as is reasonable, but you can't seriously demand to be treated as entirely normal.

    This doesn't take into account the genetic component in addiction, and the environmental component of bad eating habits. Heroin addicts often have a hard time finding the "willpower" to change as do people who are afraid of heights, or those who don't like asparagus.

    Furthermore, I think it's a stretch to say this movement has much of any backing at all. I find that most of the people who "need" this movement are displeasing to be around because of their actions, and not their weight (i.e. polyamorous pansexual tinder snowflakes who are perfectly happy with the bottomless olive garden garlic black dick in their inbox 24/7). Most fat people are far too introverted and ashamed to actually ask for more sympathy, let alone put themselves out there as an oppressed minority.

    Fat acceptance is better than the opposite because fat persons should be accepted for who they are as individuals in their entirety. Accepting something is the first step to understanding it. And understanding fat, weight, healthy and unhealthy behaviors leads to healthy weights and people.

    Acceptance should be normalising the destruction of your body, but it should treat it more like an addiction or disease and provide better care.

    Odd that you should mention that - the first step of Alcoholics Anonymous is literally:

    "We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable."

    Sounds like acceptance to me.
