In Search Of: Fat People Cult
I wanna join a fat people cult.
I wanna have
The enabling that some people think
Body positivity brings.
Please, for the love of god
Someone enable me.
I have no idea where
The dangerous radical self-acceptance cults are…
I hear there is one lady
Who now lives in New Zealand
Who writes about body positivity a lot…
Is the the movement? By herself…?
I don’t believe in body positivity–
Only body policing.
It’s like tone policing except
No one is free from it– not even white men!
This is why there needs to be
Some sort of alternative to society
Where we can freely practice our beliefs
That fat people eat healthily, that we
Go to the gym, that we exercise
That we “use our bodies” all the fucking time~~
We fuck in those bodies too, might I add!!
We hike and we work and we
Take the train, we get harassed
The whole fucking way.
This is why we need
Some sort of nation, cult, some sort of
Where we are free to continue
Working towards our health goals
Without the stigma and shame
Of fatphobic violence
Anything like this
I will probably just
Immediately start crying, and give
All of my life savings. Until then–
Enjoy these awful poems
That trigger you for saying things like
“Fat people already diet”
“Fat people already exercise”
“Fat people already know if they do or do not have
Worst of all–
“Fat people are human beings”
