>I have to say that I agree with you. People don't learn anything by not debating things.

\>implying that subreddit has anything to do with learning anything

>Real women are such because they identify as women, curves or not. And referring to someone’s partner as a dog just because they like someone’s body is degrading. Right?

>Right.

>But these types of reclamations of fat pride wouldn’t need to exist if fat-shaming wasn’t a thing.

>These types of phrases and attitudes were born of a need to say “I’m beautiful, too!” They’re responses to social norms.

>And while you can argue that they’re misguided, they’re actually challenging fatphobia.

Even if you can get past the usual bullshit, this still literally boils down to "I am justified in being shitty because people are shitty to me".

Oh, and one more:

>A person with an eating disorder can experience ableism and still benefit from their thin privilege.

>Being marginalized in one area doesn’t negate your privilege in another.

It does when it's the same fucking area you disingenuous piece of shit.

Legit 4.000000realz mad. It's bad enough that these people are blatant hypocrites when it comes to dealing with people whose lives are easy. They seriously don't have to kick legitimately unwell people when they're down (not the first time, either; see 'fat is the new gay/black' bullshit) and then pretend they're some kind of heroes for sticking up for other people like themselves. Fucking disgusting. Even the most outlandish unapologetic fat hate doesn't couch itself in this postmodern bullshit and act motherfucking righteous.

>Oh and no one here or anywhere else in the world owes you health.

Seeing that 21% of the federal budget is spent on Medicare and Medicaid, every motherfucker in this country owes me health. Or I want my money back.

Seriously, these fatties are way too soft. It'd be one thing if they were at least stronk too, but no, they just whine online.

Fatties, skinnies, uggos, transfolk, rightwingers, left-wingers, conspiracy theorists, sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, dickheads... all of 'em need to shut the fuck up.

No, it reals, but you just get massive privilege for being so damn svelte.

I'm an overweight female who barely eats anything at all and works full time in a warehouse lifting heavy boxes and doing vigorous physical work. I still maintain my 5'4, 180lb frame. Don't tell me it's as simple as you're saying it is, because it's not. I was skinny until I hit puberty and I've been a big girl ever since. Sometimes it's just genetics. Each body is different and has its own threshold for weight. Mine happens to be in the 170-210lb range. It's people like you, MassivePenis, that contribute to the idea that everyone's body is the same.

This is why I need /r/HumanAcceptance. Honestly surprised a SJW hasn't gone full(er?) retard (wow such ableism) and put "[TW: Dissent]" in their posts yet.

The reason there are no SJWs in there is because they can't berate/hate/harass people simply for who they are, and they love that shit.

"So should we rename it 'Actually having an ounce of willpower' privilege?"

Well now I'm banned from Bodyacceptance for the above comment. Mod interestingly enough hasn't deleted my comment yet though.
