Stomaching the hackneyed slogans and trite buzzwords vomited out by the constituents of modern-day pop-culture is becoming more of a challenge every moment, especially when those tools are employed by the left-wing propaganda machine to advocate for some sort of nonsensical lunacy as if it were a noble cause. “So much this!” they say, and “this so much!” It all makes me shudder, and I’ll be damned if I use the word “why” in a title or subtitle ever again. One can only handle reading the same formulaic headings over and over: “why you should do this,” “why you should do that.” Excuse me, but I’ll do as I please, thank you very much. That’s if they don’t “shame” me into compliance.
It’s difficult to understand how the masses fail to see the growing ineffectiveness of their overused catchphrases, and yet this is, by and large, the same crowd that can hardly maintain a firm grip on reality itself. I guess it all makes sense. As a reactionary measure to so-called “body shaming” we’re now being told by some that fat studies is a legitimate academic discipline as a part of the wider fat acceptance movement, which one can easily see influencing body positivity notions that are becoming all the rage, because, you know, western beauty standards are so passé. #HereIAm In other words, obesity is just the new normal because hey, being 65 lbs. overweight never killed anybody. That’s what my doctor says too.
I almost feel guilty for being so crass, but I hardly mean any disrespect. In fact, one might say that, in reality, I’m showing more respect to these individuals by pointing out the cold, hard truth: some people shouldn’t feel comfortable in their body. Maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement, but a needed corrective nonetheless. For sure, one ought to be satisfied with their best efforts and shouldn’t excessively ruminate on those physical aspects that just can’t be changed. (There really is something to be said for courageously accepting what is after all that can be done has been done — a challenge we must all face.) Neither should anyone be despised or ridiculed for their weight or any other feature for that matter. But let’s not act like we can ignore or avoid the numerous health issues that can and do arise from holding excessive weight, as if these issues are merely “social constructs” which we can simply wish away. Please. If anything should be considered “offensive” it should be the farcical deception of liberal buffoons which could easily cost people their lives. I kid you not. Look them up.
All of this reminds me of, and, at bottom, is exactly the same as that horrific and disgusting neurodiversity movement which ultimately does more harm than good by seeking to keep millions enslaved to their own psychiatric illnesses. You’re depressed? You just think differently. You have autism? It’s a gift. Schizophrenia? Just a variation of normal. Never mind the observable degradation of brain tissue. So far has the left come with their Frankfurt-esque, post-structural bullshit that even something as basic as physical and mental health is made subservient to their neo-Marxist fetish with power struggle and diversity, which is ironic considering that this, in fact, turns them into the very oppressor they despise, or at least makes them accessories. It just goes to show how little regard many of them have for your life and your health, and how little confidence they have in your ability to change.
