We’ve already done one post on Libs of TikTok today, but here’s one from Monday that deserves a look. The transgender movement is getting all of the attention lately, but what about the fat movement? Or should we say obese? How about neither? Academics at the University of Illinois Chicago School of Public Health suggested last fall replacing “obese” with “people in larger bodies.” We’ve also been assured that finding fat people unattractive is “racist.” And then there’s that company that distributes cards you can give to your doctor asking them not to weigh you unless it’s medically necessary.
We’ve heard people argue for fat pride, but what we hadn’t considered was the fatness spectrum. There isn’t just “fat”: There’s “small fat” ranging to “infinifat.” And what gives a small fat the right to talk over the feelings of superfats?
There is apparently a fatness chart which determines how much victimhood you can claim for being fat pic.twitter.com/2fj0MGz2OH

Turns out that my efforts have taken me from Infinifat, to Superfat!
While I feel this is good progress, I am sad to lose a ranking in the hierarchy…

I always thought it was measured by BMI and weight according to height; Never knew this spectrum existed

Doctors have a chart for this already, it's called super morbid obesity. Less time theorizing about the issue, extravagant make up jobs etc. and more time in the gym.

Is this another gender category?

So is she bragging about how overweight she is? Is that what is going on?

Years ago, I wanted to make a collectible card-type game about privilege. Something with extra snark.
Two things stopped me: I couldn't figure out the game mechanics and I didn't have enough "privileges" for the cards.
That was a serious failure of imagination on my part.

Honestly, though, in all of the diversity, equity, and inclusion materials we’ve seen where you add up your “privilege” points, we don’t think we’ve ever seen weight listed as a matter of privilege.
Should’ve made it a pie chart. Get it?

Infinifat is my new favorite word

So now there’s “intersectionality” in the community of people living in larger bodies. Superfats don’t want small fats talking over them on issues of weight.
Since when is ‘fat’ a race?! White Lefty uses Black women as scapegoat claiming if you ‘find fat people unattractive that’s racist’ (watch) https://t.co/XUOzSIKwuK
