Just like we did when we went through the Industrial Revolution?

However, it was brought to my attention that he posted this photo:

It's a picture of Adam Richman taking a mirror selfie in too-big pants to show off his weight-loss with the caption: “Had ordered this suit from a Saville Row tailor over a year ago. Think I’m gonna need to take it in a little…. #Victory #EyesOnThePrize #AnythingIsPossible #fitness #transformation #thinspiration”

Just seems like another boring self-congratulatory weight loss photo...until we get to the last tag.

Thinspiration?

But being fat is unhealthy!: No. It’s not...That’s bullshit. Don’t you watch the news? Obesity is linked to high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, (etc., etc., etc.): Well, the entire world believed the sun revolved around the earth for how many thousands of years? Just because you’ve heard something your entire life, or it seems like common sense, doesn’t make it true. Common sense is easy (and often wrong). Backing up common sense with valid research isn’t so easy.

So you see science is as unclear about the health impacts of morbid obesity as those thinkers that once believed in the geocentric universe.

I need to check my privileges because I wasn't triggered at all.

I don't think she is saying it is unclear so much as they were wrong forever so they're going to be wrong here too. The problem is that is not how the scientific world works: we can only use the evidence we have. We can't just go well, we have evidence supporting x, but because we had evidence supporting y and that turned out to be false, we can just assume x is false too.

Edit: Then again, she's crazy, so I don't know what she might actually be saying.

If everyone is checking their privileges, I'll take them. I want millions and millions of checked privileges. That way I'll be better than everyone else. Well, better-er.

The former travel channel fattie had a more severe response......


You guys fucking annoy me.

Yeah... I find this stuff ridiculous as the next but #thinspiration is a legit pro-anorexic thing and just as unfortunate as #healthyatanyweight.

That trigger warning came one pic to late.
post #1572 of 5586
This practice of putting trigger warnings upsets me. Can I have a trigger warning that you are using trigger warnings?
