Fat acceptance dating
The vast majority of cities are built around cars that transport fatties around with zero effort, so that no one needs to bike or walk.White-collar work demands that most people sit at desks.For most people, who just go with the flow around them, becoming a fattie is the default state. You, the reader, can try by getting a bike and riding it.We should build a society in which cars are unnecessary, biking is common, and simple carbs are rare. That’s an improvement almost any normal person can do.That being said, I feel some compassion towards fat people, but before you think I’ve become an everyone-is-special loser, I say that I feel some compassion towards fat people because our entire built environment is geared towards making people fat.Kids are told to sit down and be quiet from an early age; recess is in peril, while gym is often a joke.Working on bikes is an absolutely terrible way to meet chicks, but it’s fun to do.
Someone who bikes to work is seen as either an improbable hero who is far removed from everyday life or a weirdo. Sugars and simple carbs are everywhere in our society.
“[the single mother] at the BBQ was too fat and likely old.
I did my usual in that situation: didn’t say too much, but when I did talk, I only talked about lifting, fitness, and nutrition.” @The Red Quest doing his part against fat acceptance.
The “individual responsibility” part is why I sometimes invite fatties to the gym with me, or become a bore who only talks about sugar and deadlifting and foam rollers during certain social moments. I pity the fatties, because most don’t really know what to do or lack the willpower necessary to execute the program. It signals sloth and low conscientiousness to employers.
It increases health costs and decreases mental acuity. It’s a horrible condition that should be changed, not accepted.
I appreciate the mention and encouragement, but I’m also really unconcerned with the fat acceptance movement.
