Sooooo here, it's not okay for her to be big & happy and ppl ARE allowed to throw shade? Bc in the "can fat chicks be happy" thread ppl
practically broke their necks to snap at anyone who said there's such a
thing as being too big and it NOT being a good thing.
So...only when there's an actual pic attached that we can all heckle? Otherwise if it's "hypothetical" ppl shouldn't be honest.
Who said it isn't okay for her to be big and happy? And there is a difference between thinking it's not okay and thinking it's virtually impossible.

I reiterate: it's ok to talk smack when someone posts a pic so you (collective) can go in on them. But in the hypotheticals...be PC.
has nothing to do with the other thread, it's a non comparison. What
you are saying has nothing to do with either thread premise. The other
thread is about being fat and happy. You were arguing that you can't be
unhealthy and happy (or it's rare). That is not true. And your posts
seem to indicate that if a fat person says they are happy, they are
lying. Then you lumped all fat people together pretty much, with the
buying 2 seats...etc.
She is fat and happy. The arguments in that thread against you, argue that you can be fat and happy. This thread is a receipt.
can try to marry the idea that health = happiness, with hypotheticals,
hyperboles, and what-have-you, but you can stand behind those that
believe heatlh = wealth.
I'm guessing you meant "I can't stand behind those that believe health = wealth.
is a form of wealth actually. Not to hijack this thread, but I've
always been speaking about those who are grossly obese. Someone who's
slightly heavy may not be experiencing the same health issues as those
who are grossly overweight. Morbid obesity contributes to a number of
health issues. Having to be tied to medications because of medical
conditions which are directly effected by weight is a reduction on your
quality of life. Being forced to walk through a door sideways because
your hip circumference is so large is NOT a quality of life that the
average person would aspire to. Having to sleep on a bed that's 8 ft
wide because your hips are so wide is equally crazy. (note the last two
are things this woman listed in the OP has openly admitted to).
you can't travel because of weight, that's no different than the person
who can't travel because of a fear of flying or bridges, being
underground etc. Would you argue that the person with phobias is 100%
happy and has a great quality of life? Probably not. That's the point
I'm making. I know - that's taboo to say it, but it's a reality. Being
morbidly obese is NOT okay just because you're able to laugh and smile
through the day.
I don't get how being honest and speaking an opinion that may not be popular = condescension. Especially when what I'm saying isn't anything that can't be read in the JAMA or supported by the AMA. Sure, you can laugh and smile and have great days and bad days like anyone else. But morbid obesity = a limitation to a quality of life.
Please note QUALITY of life is not the same as HAPPINESS as happiness is subjective. Quality of life is something that is far more concrete. That's what I spoke to, not whether an obese person wakes up in a good mood every day.
some of the same ppl teehee'ing at this woman were the first ones to
say "don't talk about fat ppl not being able to be happy". If you don't
see the hypocrisy in that, then so be it - but it doesn't change the
fact that it's there.
