What Fat Acceptance Doesn’t Mean
There are days when I’m not sure I can continue pushing against the tide of fat shaming and consider giving in to behavior and a mindset that I know (from personal experience) do not work. Then I find a post like this that reminds me that it’s worth sticking to my fat acceptance guns. It’s not easy, but I believe it’s worth it.
I’m not sure why, but recently I’ve been receiving lots of e-mails and comments discussing one of the arguments that I often hear “against” the concept of Fat Acceptance. Here are a couple examples from the e-mails I got (I tried to pick from each end of the spectrum):
I just can’t get behind accepting fatness. I like my body as it is, I don’t want to be fat and I will do whatever it takes not to be fat.
Fuck you fat acceptor fucks and your fat acceptance. You will never make me be a fat fuck like you!
