Being called fat is not bullying…lose weight if you’re offended
After our Lady Gaga weight gain post, we received some abuse over calling the singer fat. Many even accused us of bullying, but how can something be labelled “bullying” if it’s true?
I read a story about a 500lbs woman covered in faeces and maggots because she was “helpless”. Apparently the woman had been bed ridden ever since a 2011 car accident which left her with a smashed pelvis.
How does this tie into the fact that she was over 500lbs? Apparently everyone is now up in arms that no-one did anything to help her sooner. This is my friends is the B.S. society that we live in. Whilst I sympathize with her injury, how is it anyone else’s fault that she gained over 500lbs to the point where she was covered in her own faeces? Maybe if she restricted her diet to 2000 calories like the RDA recommends, she wouldn’t be in this position.
Another term that I’m sick of hearing is “thick and curvy“. Sorry ladies/men, if your BMI is over 25 and your body fat is 25%+, then you’re fat. Don’t blame me…blame science. Does this mean calling you fat is bullying? No….it means you’re fat.
Definition of bullying
“OMG, how much do you weigh? You look like a pregnant cow”
Definition of truth
“OMG, how much do you weigh? You look fat”
Though it may not do well for your self esteem, being called fat is not bullying. Some people even like some cushion for the pushin’. If you’re offended then you should get up and do something about that gut instead of hating everyone that calls out your weight.
