Observations Of Popular Thought On Reddit/Fatphobia Is Common, Average, and Everywhere

If fatphobia isn’t real, than neither are trans people.

There are more members in r/fatlogic than there are in r/ftm and r/mtf combined.

If you add in r/genderfluid and r/truscum–

There are still more joiners on r/fatlogic.

Sure sure sure–

I skipped r/trans and r/nonbinary. Let’s be fair

Let’s mix it all in.

Trans-related subreddits. Why Philosophy Tube? I just wanted to show that there are almost as many members of a philosophy tube fan page than there are truscum on reddit. Approx 1.00323417266…% of reddit users

Now take for example

The number of fatphobic, fat-loathing, ignorant reductive bashing based on incel logic and reasoning groups–

Fat hatred subreddits
r/cringetopia, especially Heckin’ Chonker flair1,598,467
r/fatlogic361,258
r/fatpeoplehate *banned, if you consider*private, but before was 151,000
Cancel culture banning–which it isn’t. It’s free advertising.

r/fathateacceptance3
total2,112,770
Fat-Hatred subreddits, Approx. 1.004937…% of reddit users

Compare this to the number of

Body Positive, fat-inclusive subreddits available for users to peruse

Fat-Accepting subreddits (only ones I could find)

r/bodypositive16,425
r/bodynuetral227

Fat-Accepting subreddits– Approx. 1.0001512042…% of reddit users

As of Today– 12/10/2021 at 9:15am, for what my console loads–

There are

2,112,770 members of fatphobic subreddits.

There are

65,008 members of body accepting, body positive, body neutral subreddits and

Absolutely no pro-fat groups on this platform.

There are 1,386,211 trans-related subreddit members.

If you combined

The number of trans-positive spaces, with

The number of body-positive, accepting spaces–

Well– hold on now

Let’s get the queers all together for this–

Well– fuck– their data makes no fucking sense.

Like, for example–

r/gay278,530
r/gaymer229,255
You tell me there is 0 crossover in these two demographics lmfao

Almost certainly everyone in r/gaymer is ALSO joined to r/gay

Same way

Almost certainly everyone in r/ftm, r/mtf, r/nonbinary

Is also joined to r/trans

The overlap is endless– alas

Queer Sexuality Subreddits (Most Popular)
r/bisexual441,679
r/gay278,530
r/gaymer229,255
r/BDSMadvice225,938
r/lesbianactually171,351
r/asexuality146,085
r/pansexual136,272
r/lesbiangamers47,275
r/lesbian 37,294
r/lesbianmemes27,166
r/queer18,151
total1,758,996
Some of the Queer subreddits I could think of. Apologies if you are not included.

The point I’m trying to make here is that

If you look at it for what it is–

A group of people, a space the size of the membership–

That’s how reddit works, folks–

The larger the community the more likely other people will join it.

It’s like the opposite of Switzerland, as well as

The opposite of how most people view valuable opinion.

People go here to cringe, they go here

To try and fit in– and

Everyone knows that the best way to make friends

Is by hating the same people. That’s why

There are more fatphobic subreddits

Than there are members of any individual indentity

Within the queer community.

r/fatlogic

Has more members

Than r/trans, on it’s own

More members

Than r/ftm, r/mtf, r/nonbinary

It has more members than r/bodypositivity

More members than any single sexuality demographic

It has more members than r/gay, r/lesbianactually

More members than r/BDSMadvice–

The only community subreddit larger than fatlogic is

r/Bisexual, and that is a third the size of r/Cringetopia

The idea

That fatphobia doesn’t exist

Is something fatphobes constantly preach about on reddit–

To the r/fatlogic folks, there is no way

A fat person could be anything but a burden, whose lessening

Is in progress. The debt they pay after they lose the weight

Is endless. There is no community on the internet

That enables fat people, there is no safe haven

No subreddit, no place for a fat face to show

Without a cringe, a reshare, a steal, an appropriation–

Fat trauma doesn’t exist, just thin trauma

From having to see fat bodies, from having them host us

In their infrastructures, from having them host us

In their healthcare.

To me, just look at the numbers–

Fatphobia is common, average, and

Everywhere.
