25 Things Fat People Shouldn't Do is an unabashed middle finger to the preposterous idea that any human who weighs more than the status quo does not deserve to live a full and well rounded (ahem) life. The list of 25 is composed word for word from direct lists of sheer assholery found on the internet. These range from the absurd to the profoundly shameful, and I will be disproving this offensive notion with style. Feel free to join in on the fun, and if you do, post a link to your post at the bottom so I can share. May the Chub Club live long and prosper!
Utah, you remind me of my youngest brother...attractive, convinced of your beliefs regardless of your naivete, sweet tempered, and always doing what you believe is best. I feel like I'm home.
It was interesting to fly, since the last time I did was to Italy almost 3 years ago... and I'm considerably fatter these days. My experience varied between the two flights I jumped on... the first plane was tiny and super anti-fatty. I fit into the seats just perfectly, and the seat belt barely fit... but it did. I felt awful for the 300+ pound man that was asked to move to an isle seat (which he really didn't fit in) and everyone stared at the commotion. I literally could feel the judgement radiating off the passengers and the person next to him was visibly pissed. So fucked up. The second plane was larger, roomier, and only half full. I read the entire time and sprawled out... even the seat belt was larger than I needed.
My thoughts are this: it's a blame game. Airlines maintain that fat people should just lose weight or buy two seats. Fat people (like me) believe that planes should accommodate all humans equally. I don't really care if people have gotten fatter, remodel some of the seats. If something happened in our culture/world where people became exponentially taller, I would have to imagine that they're wouldn't be as much resistance to arranging the plane for more comfortable flights. Fat people deserve to be able to fly and live a full, adventurous life. Stop stunting those opportunities, Fat Hatahs.
I'm thrilled to be on a full week of (paid) vacation with my best friend in the entire world... and her week old baby which I fondly call "baby kitten". I just can't help myself sometimes!
So here I am in the most conservative state in all my fat, tattooed, and purple haired glory. And I am goddamn proud of my size.
