littletinypancakes-deactivated2 asked: You clearly missed my point and I wasn't throwing any shade or trying to create any sort of argument. The fact that some people have no option over whether they're fat or not at a particular moment needs to be taken into account before assuming they're fat because of poor nutrition. There are no medical illnesses that makes you gain 200lbs for example. Where have we said that people are only fat because they’re stuffing their face? From what I've seen so far these blogs always go the second and never even consider the first option. Before you come slinging any shade, I suggest you go pull up some receipts of us saying so. I’m not even going to continue with that, but you catch my drift. My daughter has been in between Georgia and New Jersey from since May.

For one thing, I wouldn’t want them to think back negatively on that compliment if they ever regained any weight.

This was only one specific internship—but it also wasn’t. Even my Raynaud’s Syndrome, which has required me to be carried back from snowstorms because I lost all feeling in my feet, wasn’t blamed on my weight when I saw a doctor, even though the syndrome is most common in underweight women.

It's not like like this issue is industry-specific, or age-specific. As an intersectional feminist and recovered anorexic, I fight hard to stop comments like these. I’ve never had a doctor ask me if I eat healthy or exercise. I think it’s crucial to recognize both fatphobia and thin privilege, and to speak out about these issues.

-M littletinypancakes-deactivated2 asked: Here's my issue with most of these blogs (yours and those similar). When I’m outside, I’m looking at my reflection in every window. My ex, aka, BD and I were in limbo over our relationship as a family. And then he used his weight against me on July 14,2015.

Everyone and their moms want to have conditions now. -M Anonymous asked: Even when I was overweight, nearing obese, the whole fat acceptance/thin privilege thing never sat right with me, I didn't believe in it.

To be honest, it's really none of my business (or anyone else's) how healthy or unhealthy someone else is.

If I hear those kinds of comments from other people, I try to politely shut them down and remind the person to focus on their own health instead of someone else's.

I’m not here to tell all women that we need to adopt and reclaim “fat,” but many fat women have done just that, and I think that’s the movement we should all be a part of.

Why is it that we jump to “fat” as an insult the minute we decide we don’t like another woman?

Why is it okay to call someone “fat” if you don’t like them, but not okay if it’s a friend?

How can we reassure our friends, “You’re not fat,” and then look in the mirror and say, “I’m fat,” in the same derogatory sense? I’ve been told it hurts when I sit on people’s laps because I’m so bony.

Colleagues stood around it, looking anxious and uncertain. My physician has never suggested I “lose weight” as a solution for my physical disability, or the things I’m unable to do because of it.
