Thoughts and opinions? Personally, I can’t even comprehend her message.
Here are just two of the many ridiculous things she’s saying in the video.
“People who value health as something much more holistic than a number on a outdated BMI chart.”
“There are fat athletes who run marathons, teach yoga or do kickboxing all done with a middle finger firmly held up, to the status quo.”
Basically my thoughts can be summed up in what someone on reddit wrote, “Right. These are fat people. I see them and think about how unhealthy they are. How every single movement they do would be easier if they had a healthy bmi. How sad, depressed and ashamed I would feel if I woke up tomorrow in that body, and how long I think it would take me to shed all that weight. They are not fierce. Hey are severely damaged and on the road to ruin.”
I’m not even sure if I’m guilty of fat shaming at this point but listening to her talk just pisses me off. Struggling with obesity is one thing, making it sound like being obese is a gift is just infuriating.
