Keep Your CONCERN to Yourself

Voicing your
pseudo-concern about the bodies of others.

This is not a Tree.

I am not a Kitten.

Put Your
Ladder Away.

 
Keep Your Concern to Yourself

             by Ragen Chastain of Dances With Fat

Reader Sara told me about some food-shaming dishes.  Some of the plates are:


1.  “It’s hard to be around you when you eat like this."

2.  "Did you really need that second helping?."

3.  "Please stop eating, we’re worried about you."


4.  "For the love of God, stop eating.”


Let’s start with my answers in order:

1.  "See ya."

2.  "No, but at this point if I stop eating with this fork I’m going to stab you with it; so bring on a third helping, or get some gauze for compression."

3.  "I can’t stop you from worrying, but I can stop you from talking to me about it." 

4.  "For the love of God, mind your own business."

 

We’ve already talked about the total bullshit that is the “Do you need to eat that” question. But of course it goes beyond that.

I’ve heard people suggest that it’s their moral obligation to tell fat people that we “need to lose weight”, exercise more, or that if someone sees a fat child they need to say something to the caregiver. I’ve been part of any number of conversations where people who had no business or permission to talk to me about my weight did so. 

I asked some friends on Facebook who had spoken to them about their weight inappropriate.  The answers included:

Plan vs. Reality
- POSTED ON: Aug 23, 2015



Over my lifetime I've set a great many goals,
and I reached the majority of them.
This taught me that while a Plan will help direct my path,
 the Reality of my journey will always be very different from my Plan.
Life just tends to always work that way.

Ten Steps
to Eating Perfectly

          by Alden Wicker

1.  They said that fast food executives were turning fat profits by making us fat, so I stopped eating fast food.

2.  They said that killing animals was wrong, so I became a vegetarian.

3.  They said that fertilizer run-off from industrial farming is killing the Gulf of Mexico, the pesticides are killing honeybees, so I started only eating organic.

4.  They said that shipped food is too carbon intensive and not as fresh, so I started eating only local, in-season food.

5.  They said that it was wrong to punish a cow by milking it twice a day, or to steal a chicken’s eggs, so I became a vegan.

6.  They said that the paleo diet would restore my body and make my teeth healthy, so I stopped eating anything cultivated.

7.  They said that cooking food destroys its nutrients, so I starting eating only raw food.

8.  They said that following a macrobiotic regimen would prevent cancer, so I followed it.

9.  They said that I should follow a zero-waste diet, so I stopped buying anything with packaging.

10.  Then, when I showed up at the farmers market in December with my reusable bag looking for local, certified-organic, vegan, unprocessed, uncooked, uncultivated, whole foods, without packaging, that would fit into my macrobiotic diet, I realized that the best thing for the planet, the animals, and my health would be to just stop eating altogether.
