turnip-lord asked:RE the person talking about fat people who can't do things like walking up the stairs: I actually was one of the fat people who couldn't walk long distances and go up stairs. I had some medical problems and gained 105 pounds in 1 1/2 years, so my body was having a hard time adjusting. You know what I did? I went to the gym. Still fat, but now I'm stronger and more mobile than I've ever been.
But don’t you know that that can’t be true? That you can’t possibly have gone to the gym and worked out and gotten stronger but not gotten thin? DON’T YOU KNOW THAT YOUR LIVED EXPERIENCE IS FALSE IF IT CONTRADICTS THESE PEOPLE DEEPLY HELD BELIEFS ABOUT FAT PEOPLE?
