“I Wasn’t Warned Of The Risks!!!!”— Said No Fat Person Ever
I personally known weight loss success stories
I personally known weight loss/gain disaster stories
I personally know multiple bariatric success stories
I personally know bariatric disaster stories
I’ve heard testimony, and I’ve personally experienced and can give testimony to
The horrors of going to the doctor for help
And instead receiving shame, misdiagnosis, hatred and ignorance
But never once
Have I ever heard a story
Of a fat person
Who was allowed to be fat
For a long long time
Before anyone said anything.
Don’t you dare say what’s eating Gilbert Grape—
A fictional story about a woman
Who was so ostracized by society
She died inside her house hiding.
Seriously think to yourself
If you’ve ever heard a story
About someone being in denial of their weight
And no one ever confronting them
Or saying anything —
Has that ever happened?
What amount of evidence could convince you
That all this “concern” is greatly contributing
To the problem with which you’re so deeply disturbed?
