Out: Being healthy. In: Thin Privilege!

No, really.

A self-proclaimed "fat activist" gave college kids in Minnesota yet another issue to angrily protest: Thin privilege. 
To mark “International No Diet Day,” the University of Minnesota's School of Public Health invited Virgie Tovar, a Cal-Berkeley lecturer and “fat activist,” to instruct America’s future nutritionists, dietitians and social workers on the finer points of “fat oppression.”

I bet you'll be SHOCKED at what this "fat activist" looks like!

No, no you won't be.  Sorry.

I'm the first guy you'll meet who will knock the supermodel, "heroin chic" look.  If you've followed me for a while, I prefer my women to be healthy, not look like they've just been released from a concentration camp.  But folks, that up there isn't healthy.  That's just ten pounds of flabby crap shoved into a five pound dress.

Tovar’s talk, entitled “Dispelling Myths: Fat, Fatphobia, and Challenging Social Stereotypes,” was designed to help students understand that “fat phobia” is rampant in a “white, heteronormative society” that is looking to actively oppress people with larger body types. 
How many buzzwords can you fit into one college speech?  Apparently, lots.  And it's all bullshit.

Yes.  And you know it's true.  Every single word that drops from her mouth like the crumbs from the entire box of Krispy Kremes she ate this morning is bullshit.  You want to know why modern society gives the obese a bit of crap?  Because A) Being obese is unhealthy, and B) being obese is (99% of the time) the fault of the obese themselves.

I ain't the one forcing you to eat an entire bag of Fritos, folks.  Oh, and "oppressing people with larger body types"?  Horseshit.  That's just a victims way of whinging "I'm not fat, I'm just big boned!"  Utter bollocks and bullshit.  I am big boned.  I also drink beer, maybe two a night if I'm feeling frisky.  Guess which one contributes to my beer gut?

Hint:  There's a reason they call it a beer gut, and not a "Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken Gut".

The bottom line is that Flabby McLiberalFascist up there just wants to find someone to blame for her inability to put the fork down.  No, it could NEVER be that she can't stop herself from eating the entire bucket of KFC extra crispy.  Nope, it's always SOMEONE ELSE'S FAULT in loony liberal land, and that someone is WHITE MALES!  The "white heteronormative society" that creeps out of her closet at night and forces her to binge-snack on bacon covered maple donuts, yeah, YEAH, THOSE GUYS are the problem, and they need to accept her for who she is, quivering jowls and all!

"Fat oppression".  What a crock of crap.  I could go on all day about what a crock of crap it is, but I have to go work, and I've already spent a good portion of my morning exercising.

Because unlike the fashion-challenged land-whale Vergie Tovar, I don't whine and snivel about how mean other people are.  I work the calories off to make sure I don't have to squeeze my gut sideways through the door of the local In-and-Out.

P2 - you need to find different venues!

I don't mind a little junk in the trunk, and I prefer my women to actually be women, not a skeletal copy of a woman. But 'ol Vergie there ain't healthy, she's fat. And she's blaming other people for not accepting her flab.

I've heard plenty of people say "You have to accept me as I am!" Uh, no I don't. I can reject you as you are just as easily. And I will.

Looks like rose-anne six months after she went on her diet.

Why are colleges allowing these nonsensical people to speak to their students? All they do is spread toxic lies.
