When fat people started making their views known on the internet, there was immediate resistance. The response from others has been, these are our terms of engagement with you fat people.
Trivialize your experience and make it on par with less serious ones, or else. This plays into fat people’s rigid conditioning to follow other people’s dictates, no matter how unreasonable.
I’ve always resented this because I know we’ve done that already and that’s what has brought us here. It’s like we are no longer accepting those terms response; accept those terms again in a slightly different form.
We have to tell it like we feel it or we are just wasting our time and betraying ourselves again. I think we need to show faith in ourselves regardless in order to heal our relationship with the past.
