So, here it is. Here is me not being diplomatic or tactful.
There is no such thing as too fat for fat positivity.
I don’t care how fat you are. I don’t care about your health (well, I mean, I CARE but it isn’t criterion for whether or not you deserve fat acceptance). Fat positivity, fat acceptance, fat activism is for YOU.
By the same token! I don’t care how thin you are! I don’t care about your health (with the same caveat as above). Body acceptance, size acceptance, whatever you choose to call it, IS FOR YOU.
There is no magic number, no arbitrary point at which someone becomes TOO FAT ZOMG and it obviously MUST be AFFECTING YOUR HEALTH. There is no point at which you deserve the derision of strangers because of your body. There is no point at which a person can look at you and just automatically KNOW things about you (unless they are genuine, documented psychics, because, hey, I allow for all possibilities) and your lifestyle based on how fat or thin or whatever you are.
If you are sitting in your chair or doing whatever you do when you read this blog and you think there is a point at which people are just TOO FAT, you need to do a little self-evaluation on why you think that. Why are you placing limits on human dignity? Why are you imposing your individual health responses and reasoning on others when you cannot know them and their own health responses?
I could say more but, apparently, I haven’t actually abandoned tact all together.
