Something Worth Pondering.

When did being a protozoa become such a con-tozoa? (Sorry, sorry. I had to.)

Happiness Is Not One Size Fits All; Fat Shamming is Real
We live in a world where no women can live her life without being shamed because she is fat, skinny, tall, short, flat chested or rocking triple E's. So you would think that women would unite together, say screw the impossible standards that our bodies are scrutinized under and support each other, right? Too bad the support ends once people (who aren't ever health care professionals) deem a human being too "unhealthy" and "obese" for common human decency. And that my friends is what we call fat shaming. Fat Shaming [noun] : the unkind and usually public criticism of someone for being overweight. Recently comedian Nicole Arbour posted a video entitled "Dear Fat People" in which she claims fat shaming doesn't exist, compares fat people to Frankenstein, says she can outrun fat people by just walking, and even makes some racial slurs about curvy black women in their sunday best. I'm sorry but WHAT?! This hateful, public video criticizing and making fun of fat people is the very definition of fat shaming and if you don't believe me see above definition. Unfortunately this video has racked up more than 18 million views and 177,000 likes on Facebook alone. Luckily body positive super star and TLC's very own Whitney Thore from My Big Fat Beautiful Life has come to the rescue of insecure women everywhere who don't find anything funny in this fat shaming, cyber bulling video attempting to be passed off as comedy. Check out her perfect response video here and watch her flawlessly shred every single cruel statement Arbour made. Thore's response has more than 10.2 million views and nearly 180,000 likes on Facebook and counting! I will share this video till forever. But seriously, here are 3 very important things to come out of this video! 1. Thore makes comments on the fact that while heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety and depression are all prevalent in over weight people, they are just as common in skinny people! You can not tell someone's health just by looking at them! 2. She admits that she once suffered from an eating disorder. What confuses me is that Arbour would never criticize someone with an eating disorder however the shaming begins once healthy isn't the correct size for her. 3. And this is the most important...Arbour seems to be delusional if she thinks that calling out fat people to "motivate them", will kick start them into losing weight. To bad Thore has don't the research. Studies show fat shaming and "funny videos motivating fat people" (eye roll), do the opposite of motivate. In fact videos like these will lead so many women and men alike to feel even more insecure, afraid to go to the gym for fear of judgement, and push them further into unhealthy physical and mental lifestyles. So think about that before finding body shaming of any kind funny, because you might have one person laughing at the joke but you will force way more people then that further into recluse. Thankfully we have body positive superstars like Whitney Thore there to remind everyone that she loves them and they are perfect and beautiful and that happiness isn't reserved for a certain size waist. All I can say is a very eloquent Fuck Off to Nicole Arbour. You are not a comedian, and that video you posted is cyber bullying and will do more harm then your comedy will ever do good. Oh, and she isn't sorry at all about what she said. She makes that quite clear.
