The Fat Word

Fat is not a four letter word.

Reliably, Dr. Douchebag Keeps on Douching

While standing in line at Fred Meyer this weekend, I made the common mistake of looking around. As my eyes scanned the impulse magazine stand, I saw something that gave me the impulse to flip over my grocery cart and Fat-Hulk through the store terrorizing patrons and throwing bottles of Slim Fast into displays of Smart Ones with my +4 Fists of Douche-smiting.

Table Flip

Thankfully, I was able to restrain myself just enough to pull out my phone and snap a photo. Like HELL I was going to actually pay money for the damn thing. The clerk looked at me strangely, and I prefaced it with, “hold on just a sec, gotta take a picture of this offensive magazine”.

Dr. Douchebag

Ah, First for Women… confusing advertising with reporting and body shaming with empowerment since 1989, from the same media company bringing you other high-end publications like In Touch Weekly and Life & Style.

My regular readers already know my disdain for Dr. Oz. What a puzzling contrast between his Ivy League education/surgical expertise and the constant shilling of woo-woo pseudoscientific miracle “cures” with a strong bias against fat people. It’s good to know that there is something I can do about my “ugly fat”, so that I am left with only my non-ugly fat. Thanks to Dr. Oz and the fine reporting of First for Women, I know I am only part ugly.

Rules of the Game

The Fat Word supports fat activism, body positivity, and social justice movements worldwide. Inclusivity is paramount. We struggle together, we fight together. The Fat Word is a place for open discussion. We have two rules only. You disparage another person for their appearance and you're gone. All other topics are open for discussion at the moderators discretion. As long as you follow the rules of civil, logical debate, you'll be fine. Straw men are not welcome here, nor are concern trolls. If you have genuine questions about the fat acceptance movement, you're in the right place. If you seek to sow dissent, move along.
