TW: ED, emotional abuse
I just wanted to share a little story from my childhood.
When I was 11 or 12 I was forced into weight watchers (by my mother who spent the entire time back from the first meeting she dragged me to screaming that I was fat) where I learned to effectively starve myself and become terrified of gaining weight. I lost around 50 pounds by eating nothing but yogurt and carrots.
My reward was a horse for losing the weight.
My parents valued my thinness so much they dropped ten thousand dollars on a reward for me. Mind you, I could ride horses just fine at my original weight. I was physically fit and even my doctor said that I was in perfect health (“except for the weight”). My parents just thought that it was a nice reward for me.
However, when I started to gain the weight back and then some, they started to talk about selling my horse because I “obviously don’t care enough about him to stay in shape”. My Grizz is a precious friend to me and even though I tried to lose weight again, it’s very hard. I’ve become so depressed (not only because of that but other issues) that I can barely get out of bed, let alone function and see him.
I know I’m fortunate to get a horse and that I should be grateful for my friend (I am!), but the circumstances make me incredibly sad because I know how much my parents value my thinness. I’ve been told to my face that “fat is unattractive” and in the next breath asked why I think I’m ugly. Tears have been shed over my weight that aren’t mine. And ludicrous gifts have been given to “ensure” that I stay the way they want me to.
mom, stop OPPRESSING ME with this $10,000 horse. oppression in america is real and it's being given a $10,000 horse

read this, maybe educate yourself a little about fat oppression?
Thin privilege is being able to fit into an MRI machine comfortably and get scanned whenever necessary.
Someone I know went to the doctor for an MRI, having told them twenty times on the phone that the machine would be too small, and having them insist “no one could be that big” and that it would be fine; she would fit. Feeling alright, said person arrived for the MRI, and they literally taped her arms and legs together to make it easier to stuff her into the machine. Like she said, she was too big for the machine, and apparently she exceeded their expectations (even though those machines are uncomfortable for a person of any size).
Thin privilege is having medical equipment suited to your size.
how are you so huge that you cant fit in an mri machine they are pretty big and have room for people up to several hundred pounds what the fuck this isnt shaming its absolute bullshit.
what is fucking wrong with people oh my god.
So basically fat people shouldn’t have access to proper medical treatment because of their size?
So what do you suggest then, they just die?
there are MRI machines that are very big and that can hold up to 630 pounds. if you are honestly too big to fit into one of those you probably don’t give that much of a shit about yourself and it’s your own fault you’re too big for medical equipment
you don’t just get to be that big out of the blue. generally (excluding any thyroid issues or other disorders that cause weight gain) people who are overweight to that point are usually that way because of poor eating habits and lack of exercise, and that is their own fault
i’m pretty sure the problem here isn’t whether or not fat people care about themselves but rather that you’re advocating the death of fat people just because of their size
i don’t support the death of fat people just because of their size lmao. i just think that they shouldn’t be that fucking size in the first place because it’s extremely unhealthy and if they want medical attention they should lose weight
so in order for a person to be deserving of medical treatment they must be thin?
you are advocating the death of fat people, you fucking fascist.
oh my god ahahaha
they don’t have to be THIN they shsould just be at least fucking under 630 pounds so they can fit into an MRI to receive medical treatment
so anyone who is over 630 pounds doesn’t deserve medical treatment
aubrism and chinchie you are being featured on this blog for not only being fatphobic but for being incredibly ableist as well.
Lose weight. Get Horses.
theres a machine that turns human fat into living horses but it costs $10,000
laughing at tumblr is so 2012
you're right but it can't be helped
Let’s talk about degenerate stalker drdogballs, who not only has previously stated his belief in that women’s bathrooms should exclude transgender people, but believes that as a gay man in Canada, he’s more oppressed than South American bisexual men, his justification for this is that Russia is one of the most homophobic countries in the world, and thus he’s the most oppressed even though he lives in Canada and not Russia because he’s A True Gay and Not Some Bi Poser.
