Two years ago, Swarthmore College (thank dog, I got waitlisted and ultimately didn’t go there!) hosted a “Fat Justice and Feminism” seminar, in which Cora Segal – before she became famous as Trigglypuff – told students how, among other things I mentioned above, the Body Mass Index was invented by white supremacists.
The seminar was taught by feminist activists Cora Segal and Nicole Sullivan, who describes herself as an “angry, man-hating lesbian,” according to Campus Reform.
It… was chronicled by Paige Willey, a correspondent for The Swarthmore Independent, who was unpersuaded by the duo’s “litany of strawmen” and “unscientific approach.”
Willey transcribed some of Segal and Sullivan’s worst arguments, including their unsubstantiated attack on Reagan and promotion of the idea that obesity is healthy:
Ronald Reagan is partially responsible for all suffering of fat people, as he “f*cked everything up.” [No specific evidence about Reagan’s perverse policies or animosity toward obese people was offered.]
“Overweight people live longer. They’re better protected from heart disease.” [By using the term “overweight,” they skirted the fact that this does not apply to obese people; rather, it refers to those slightly overweight as opposed to extremely thin.]
Sullivan and Segal also explored the notion that communism and socialism were superior economic systems to capitalism, because capitalism promotes the oppression of fat people and the tyranny of healthy eating.
pensavo che ormai fosse ultrafamoso
io "posso" capire il femminismo, i diritti ai gay e tutto ok. Ma la forzata accettazione del ciccionismo mi perplime. A parte alcuni che poveri, son cosi e bon per problemi ormonali, ecc. NON E' uno stile di vita sano. E' per il 70% dei casi pura pigrizia e bassa autostima che porta a mangiare troppo e non muovere il culo, scelta di vita che causa una serie di problemi di salute mica da ridere.
Si dovrebbe poter dire a un grasso "guarda che stai sbagliando, dovresti cercare di limitare" anzichè "mannoooo sei bellissimo/a, son gli altri che non vedono la bellezza del tuo animo".
Ma davvero hai abilitato la vista firme? Cazzo guardi!
