Big isn’t beautiful – fat shaming isn’t wrong


(Artist: Munimuni Kinoko)

A teenage girl in the UK made news on Metro UK because Mcdonald’s staff said the truth and said “this fat woman wants six burgers.” Which she did and which she was. The article and the photos included were so funny, I started to think it was Metro UK’s attempt at humor but nope!

It would seem that we currently live in a society that is trying to normalize something that should NOT be normalized….obesity. With phrases like “big is beautiful,” “it’s what’s on the inside that matters,” and “fat-shaming”, we are gradually attempting to make fat people seem normal and healthy…well, guess what? I’m not joining the politically correct crowd. Big is NOT beautiful. There is no way you can call someone with +100 lbs of fat on their body “beautiful.” It’s disgusting, unhealthy, and downright disrespectful.

I am currently 6 feet, 150 lbs with about 15% body fat and a BMI of 20. I am pretty healthy in terms of weight and body fat. There was one point in my life where i ate like a fat shit and almost reached 200 lbs but before I reached it, I decided, “no fucking way” and I started to cut back on my eating habits and now I am good to go. Now, yes, I’ve been blessed with a very high metabolism so I can eat all I want and gain almost nothing but that is beside the point…

But I’d like to focus on the main reason for this blog post…the word “fat shaming.” I don’t know why came up with that liberal ass word, but lets get real: The worst part of fat shaming is actually crying about fat shaming. If you were not such a giant lard ass, you wouldn’t have to worry about being “shamed” in the first place. The ONLY people that have an excuse for being fat are those with preexisting conditions that cause obesity like those with Hypothyroidism but for the most part, people are fat because of their own personal choices.

What gives you or anybody else the right to say people like me are wrong for calling you out for being fat?! It’s not bullying, it’s the truth. Since when has the TRUTH become a taboo thing? When you choose to eat 6 large pizzas in one sitting, order 18 big macs from Mcdonalds, or go through a gallon tub of ice cream in 10 minutes and then you get up in arms because someone said you should lose some weight, then don’t get mad at us, get mad at yourself. If you are able to do something about yourself but are too lazy or too comfortable with the way things are, then you deserve to be shamed.

“The lord gave you a body and look what you’ve done to it.” If you don’t like being called fat, stop being fat. Eat right, get off your fatass and exersize, and better your body because you cannot normalize an unhealthy lifestyle like overeating, and inactivity. If you choose to be fat, I choose to call you out for it. You can either blow it off or change, either way, I won’t.
