When I see comments from hateful assholes on body positivity posts, I get angry and sad and I think about how my life would be if I was overweight. I would be treated differently, those awful words would apply to me . I can’t imagine the pain. Too fat, too skinny. It seems like no one can win. But at the end of the day say FUCK EVERYONE. They are the pathetic ones, they are the ones that need help. Their negativity will come back around to them. They have to pick on people on the fucking internet, hiding behind a username. How sad they all are. It’s immaturity and it won’t get them far in life. It’s difficult because obesity is a problem. It is a health crisis. But insults only make matters worse. If you are so fucking concerned about other people’s obesity then work for change! Volunteer for organizations trying to promote healthy choices in kids. Work to put a stop to food deserts, and most importantly, give people who are struggling with their weight a fucking break and keep your comments to yourself. Research has shown the body positivity movement to lead to weightloss and better health choices.
After you make a comment calling someone fat or anorexic online, say this out loud to yourself. “I________ insult people on the internet because of their physical appearance” Do you really want that to be a part of you? Does it really make you feel better to insult someone that you don’t even know? Would you want your child, friend, significant other, sister, brother, mom, dad or other relative to be a victim of such abuse?
Think about it.
