Fat = Not Good. Deal with it.

I have an announcement to make:

I'm fat.

No, this isn't a cry for help/attention/free teddy bears. This is just something that I thought I'd say.. because I'm about to be very vocal. Call it backstory, foreshadowing, whatever.

I am sick of self-entitled fat people who, when someone uses the term fat in a negative way jump on them and say "OMG HOW DARE YOU I'M FAT AND I'M HAPPY!OMGYOUEBILWENCH!!!!!111!!!"

Get a fucking grip. You are fat, this means you are:
  • Unheathly
  • Probably eating too much
  • Probably excersising too little
  • Not as attractive to the majority of the population as you might be
  • More prone to a whole host of diseases
  • likely to die younger

You know what? That's not a good thing.

Stop calling people prejudiced when they are really calling you what you are: a fat fuck. Get off your ass and do something about it. Me? I'm cycling more, I'm eating less, I'm cutting out most sugar from my diet, and all soda, and I'm trying to limit the ammount of things like bread I eat. Not big steps I think you'll agree: but they will slowly make a difference.

Fat is bad ok? It's got a negative association for a reason. So get away from your LJ communities for 30mins-1hr a day and just DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT YOU WHINY BASTARDS!

If someone is 'fine with being fat' -- well, that's their choice in life, I suppose - but could we please not pretend it's healthy or okay?

I quit smoking - not because I didn't LOVE smoking... I did. But because it is UNHEALTHY. I never pretended otherwise, or that I was somehow privy to a secret about why it was okay despite every evidence to the contrary. Nor did I think anyone who had a problem with or bias against smokers was bad/wrong for feeling that way.

I am the same toward weight. I have a TON of weight to lose. Put bluntly, I let myself get not just old - but old and FAT. Now it's time to suck it up and lose the weight.

So I'm on your bandwagon... but only after I run a mile behind it! :)
