the whole 'body positive' movement thing is a lie and only fat people are allowed to be part of it. if you're skinny you just get attacked and accused of random stuff like 'body checking' or eating disorders. they're such hypocrites too. they cry about how much they hate their bodies but when you offer them advise they get insulted or rant about 'skinny privilege'

i'm having a bad day, i'm so sick of everything sometimes :/

I'm of the chunkier disposition and think it's wrong too, I've never subscribed to 'body positivity' as for me personally I don't feel positive about it.
If other's do then that's great but for me it's an unfortunate side effect of PCOS, antipsychotics and birth control. Something I'm trying to combat with swimming.
I have had 'fat' etc shouted at me by complete strangers and made to feel ugly pretty much my whole conscious life.
Its just as wrong to pick on thin people as it is overweight people.

Social media is full of inbreds who are just looking for an excuse to go off, it's a waste of time and energy honestly.

Antipsychotics here too. :wavey: Also combatting with swimming. I do 66 lengths 3 or 4 times a week. How about you? Have you lost much weight yet?


I agree with CC that I don't subscribe to fat positivity. It's not a good thing and I'm sick and tired of being fat. I have "excuses" which make me feel even worse.

I'm not sure whether it is the majority of visibly overweight people active on social media.
Culprits may just be a small number of very noisy keyboard warriors with lots of dupe accounts or spiteful trolls obsessed targeting those much slimmer than themselves.
Probably motivated by habitual envy, malice or deep insecurity arising from bitterness about their own appearance & health choices.

I used to be obese. People didn’t want to know me, they thought that they had the right to comment on what I eat- it was everyone’s problem, not just mine. Now I am about a size 8-10 people never treat me differently for my size.

Its probably not great for my mental health but I follow skinny/toned guys on social media as I keep telling myself I'll look like that one day (it'll never happen I hate most exercise and love food too much) and they look hot. But I would never shame someone who's skinny just because I'm a little overweight and they are skinny, If I had a body like that id be posting more pictures on social media.

they can feel positive about it if they wish, doesn't bother me. i just wish they'd stop harassing others.
and yeah, i get that overweight people get a lot of hate too

crazy how meds can do that.. fear of weight gain was one of the reasons why i decided to stop taking my meds tbh

i wouldn't say that. i mean yeah, it's filled with a lot of toxic people but you can meet tons of fun people and learn lots of new things. you can make some extra £££ too

Dunno because I don’t use other social medias. But, it sounds weird as hell and it sounds exclusively specific to social media, due to social media. Wouldn’t be surprised if they see it as a way to get free clout or whatever.

If you prefer to see & hear it used as a compliment, you could always relocate to alabama.
My family tree includes centuries of consanguineous marriages and endogamy, accompanied by all the problems that arise from them. :facepalm:

That’s for most every **** trend that goes on. Everyone posted videos on those who faked disorders, for example. Still doesn’t make that trend die down, unfortunately…

it's kinda messed up. tbh like on tiktok there's suddenly an influx of people with did. and yeah i do think that some of them are faking it but still, actually making videos about them is pretty *****y. you never know for sure, like you're not their doctor.
