Do Not Apologize For Your Appetite
We in the Fat Acceptance Movement lose credibility when our members make outrageous statement like "I weigh 400 pounds and I only eat 900 calories a day." That one does not even pass the giggle test. We need not apologize for our gluttony and gormandizing. We did not get fat because we hate food. We love food and we should love food. Life is short and it is doubtful that there is a god so what we do on earth won't matter when we are gone. I for one will not apologize for my gluttonous hedonism and neither should you.
Food is glorious. It is better than love by far. It never rejects you. Unlike "God" it never ignores your pleas. If love were better then parents would not be raising obese kids who will suffer ridicule from this fat hating society and allegedly a lifetime of health problems but let's not get on that slippery slope right now. No, this is about being unapologetic and guilt free about eating as much as we want, when ever we want and what ever we want.
I love feeder chat on Dimensions Magazine. I love calling these lovely BBWs pigs and the love it too. I love looking at extremely fat women. Most men do. If you do a Google image search and type in BBW you will find image after image of BBWs unashamedly showing off their lovely large bodies but if you Google terms like skinny woman (who'd want to?) and you will find mostly fully clothed stick girls. My point is fat women need not apologize for how much they eat. That is a sure way to develop an eating disorder. Do what I and other fat men do eat all you want and if someone has a problem with that just tell them to F off!
Our matra needs to be "You can't ever eat to much and you cannot ever weigh too much so don't judge us" I am hoping for a paradigm shift in the Fat Acceptance Movement. There is too much infighting and the cause of that infighting is because many of us in the movement will not say, "Yes that's right I eat 6000+ calories a day everyday. You got a problem with that?
