Fat Bottomed Girls

A Fat Positive site, focusing on women who are fat and not ashamed of it.

This actually happened a week or so ago but, once again Metafilter showed its collective ass.  Anytime there is a mention of fat or anything to do with fat, those that hate fat people come out of the woodwork.

I've given up about correcting them, most of the time.  It is not worth the time nor the effort.  Many of them have closed minds about weight and fat.  They think fat is bad and that's all there is to it.

Well, I want to know something, why are fat people hated by some?  What in the hell is so offensive about having more flesh on your body than someone else?  Is it that we offend your sensiblities?  Is it we don't fit the idea of a perfect body?

No, it can't be that.  A whole lot of those who are going off about fat people, are not all that attractive, themselves.

Why it must be because we're stupid.  Well, it can't be that, either.  I know plenty of fat people who are very intelligent, hell, we're just like our thin sisters other than the whole size issue.

We must be lazy.  Oh, come on.  That can't be it, either.  There are just as many lazy thin people as there are lazy fat people.  Lazy is just lazy.  And, I have never seen a fat hater state they don't like someone because they are lazy.  Nope, it's just because they are fat. 

Really, if you are that threatened by a little extra adipose tissue.  You need help.  Seriously, if someone has a hatred of someone based solely on their size, they have mental issues and therapy could change that.

What do you think about it?  Leave me a note.

Okay, you asked for it. An MD -

(who had just finished spiting in my face for about 15 minuets, screaming and lecturing me on how I should loose weight, and telling me that "every thing" I said about my eating habits was a "LIE"!!!)

[Not - one - word - was - a - lie.]

- told me that I,



"Its psychological.
Fat people look like


and that

"all normal, sane, people are instinctively afraid that the BIG BLOATED DEAD BODY will explode and give them the disease that IT died from!"

I was 16 at the time.

I am now 58.

After a lifetime of "SENSIBLE DIETS", and "GROUP SUPPORT", -
I am now more overweight than ever.

I have not been to a doctor since I was 18!

And I never will again.
