my actual writing, if you're curious

It’s not harmless, because the choice of body shame as the bonding/humbling mechanism is not harmless, because we live in a society that hates and fears fatness and fat people. It’s not harmless because it is perceived as normal to talk about yourself this way, when it is in fact REALLY FUCKING WEIRD. It’s not harmless, because teaching women to devalue themselves and be unable to accept compliments is not harmless. It’s not harmless, for example, if someone you know is looking at a fat person and says “I’d die before I let myself get like that” and the person looks like you (or better yet is much thinner than you) and you think “Does my friend think I should die?” and this is why this shit really and seriously Must. Be. Stopped.
