You are not gonna wanna hear this, and this is honestly not coming from a fat shaming place, but losing weight may help your problem. Obesity has a large effect on hormonal balance. If that balance is shifted due to obesity in the first place, the addition of hormonal changes due to your period may cause hormone induced moods. I'm sorry if I'm being offensive but I think it may help.

you.

you are a dolt.

if you have to reassure me multiple times that you mean no offense or that it’s ‘not coming from a fat shaming place’….then you’re probably offensive and coming from a fat shaming place…and you know it.

you, from what i can probably guess really accurately, are not a medical professional and what’s more, should not be doling out anonymous internet ‘health advice’ to people regarding something as personal as their weight.

i did not ask for advice on my weight. i did not ask for advice on where these moods could be coming from. i asked for herbal and natural remedies and therapeutic practices. not weight loss advice.

i don’t care if you sent this out of genuine ‘concern’ or ‘care’…don’t send anything like this to anyone else. ever.

"Don’t EVER say anything I don’t like hearing. Ever."

… fuck. Honestly, this is pathetic. Someone tries to give an idiot honest helpful advice and gets a pissy angst attack as way of a thank you.

A girl who used to be around my size (18) has been slowly losing weight and every photo she posts triggers a huge mental struggle for me and I hate it.

She’s not even being annoying about it, she’s the sweetest person ever and just living her life. It’s entirely my own issue that I’m reacting…

"How much food and what types of food I put in my mouth is something I can not control."  …. o_O

Why should anyone care about bettering women’s lives?As a straight, cisgendered man, I’m really and truly curious: Why should I give a fuck about women’s problems? They don’t affect me. I’m not harmed in any way. So why should I give a rat’s ass about you and your problems? I mean, you’re a selfish, self-centered bigot who only cares about the needs of people like yourself. Why shouldn’t I be exactly the same as you?

stfueverything:

Well, I’m so glad you asked. The answer to your question is: 

Google it. I’m not your teacher.

So… she doesn’t give a fuck about men at all. He asks why he, as a man, should give a fuck about women, pointing out that if everyone acted like her the world would actually be far worse off and no one would care for groups they’re not a part of. She tells him “google it”.

The idiocy in this is amazing. Did she even read the post? He’s simply pointing out that hate, anger, and complete neglect of a group simply because you’re not part of it leads to selfishness and divisiveness instead of equality and harmony. There was no actual question in his post other than the rhetorical. It was making a good point, which she clearly failed to grasp.

Angry ranting and disdain for others doesn’t lead to equality, it leads to starting a mob and trying to become the known pack leader or celebrity. There is no honest attempt at equality of true beneficial change here, just one woman who doesn’t care if her angsty mongering causes actual societal harm and division as long as it gets her followers and lets her feel powerful over others.

There are a lot of honest issues in the world, and a lot that could be bettered. Hating any one group based on gender/race/religion/disability/etc does the opposite of this. Being against bigots? Stellar. Being against racism? Great! Being against homophobia? Good works. Being against men/straight people/whites? No. This is absolutely the same thing as hating women, gay/trans people, or blacks. It causes division and harm, and should be opposed. It is not actual social justice, and those who preach follow it are entirely in the same boat as the KKK and other groups who hate/like based on sexuality, gender, and race. Just because you’re preaching against the opposite group as they are doesn’t mean you’re not doing the exact same thing.

So we just got yet another anonymous submission about diabetes and how “Doctors aren’t telling you that you’re at higher risk of getting diabetes as some kind of witch hunt. They are telling you this because it’s true”, blah blah blah…

I wanted to respond with this video, which can’t be done with the video as the feature (and they didn’t say anything particularly enlightening, witty or original anyway), so I thought I’d just make this response post. I’m way more interested in other people, who aren’t sheep, being exposed to various information and making up their own minds.

So here it is (probably again): Surgeon Peter Attia talking at TED about diabetes, obesity and thin privilege.

(I’m tagging this post the way the submitter tagged it)

-Fatanarchy

"Could the precusrors to diabetes cause obesity, and not the other way around?"

Answer: No. They will not cause matter to appear out of nowhere. The human body burns X calories per day through functioning and Y calories through daily exercise. If you consume more than X+Y calories you gain weight. The precursors to diabetes do not cause matter to materialize from nowhere to increase your weight. If you do not eat more than you need you will not gain weight. The end.

To the people in the Devin Barnes tag saying her actions were justified because he didn’t tip, you can all go fuck yourselves.

You don’t tip when you “pick up” food.

no one fucking owes you a tip ever if you are a shitty person/waiter. A tip is supposed to be for exemplary service and somehow it turned into an expectation and that is whack. I hope this follows her around the rest of her life. Its not that hard to be a decent person

He has major grounds for defamation of character - especially since this girl obviously pulled a fast one to claim defamation of her own character.

Or maybe the bastard did write it. And maybe you should tip the person who does your to go food, because they do a lot more than you probably think to get your food. There’s this thing called tip out, and if you don’t tip, the employee just paid the restaurant for you to have their food. Just 5%. That’s all your stingy ass has to leave for to go.

You don’t tip on to-go orders just like you don’t tip when picking up fast food, or buying a television, or buying almost everything from any other business. You tip service positions such as a waiter or a bellhop as a thank-you for good service. Expecting tips for to-go orders in dining establishments where most people dine-in and do tip is nothing but entitlement. You’re used to people ordering in a way that would end up in a tip, so when they do something else you become a pissy child. Unless you tip every single cashier at every single business you go to you have no ground to complain.

"They do a lot more than you probably think to get your food" is a senseless argument. At Best Buy someone has to order the goods, receive the goods, stock the shelves, set up and maintain the display, ring in the sale, and for larger items go get them from the back and generally take them to the vehicle. You don’t tip them, so why do you expect a tip? If you’re not bringing a steady flow of food/drinks and asking someone what they need at several points throughout a meal you’re not doing something people tip for. Deal with it and try to grow up a bit.

If you can trace your line, note the participation your ancestors had in slavery and genocide. Own that shit and be explicit about it. I’m not saying be proud, but at…

So… sorry, you’re correct. I’m completely lost on your concept of where white supremacy originated. It certainly wasn’t slave ownership or population, as historically most slave owners have been and continue to be non-white and white people are certainly not a global majority. What are the awful things that white people have historically done that other races have not, which created this white supremacy?

Yes, thank you I’m correct. I know.

White supremacy originated with white people. Hence the name. Racial hierarchies have been defined in concordance with European chauvinism, legitimized by age-of-enlightenment conceptions of reason and humanity, as well as through papal bulls such as dum diversas.

White supremacy is the vehicle that legitimized these horrors, white supremacy is the institutionally enacted policy of exclusion whereby those coded racially as white continue to partake exclusively in the benefits accrued by the rapacious endeavours of colonialism and slavery.  White supremacy is the current institutional foundation for the racism experienced by people of colour to this day. White supremacy is why there are more people of colour in prison despite committing less crime. White supremacy is why there is a wage gap for workers of colour. The examples are glaring and endless, and obvious to everyone but people like you, because apparently the thick haze produced by your self-serving bullshit is blinding you.

As for those historically awful things; you understand that the Imperial Powers of England, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany and Belgium had a global reach, right? You understand then how structures of power and control could be easily replicated around the world at a local levelthereby affirming and protecting distant imperial power?

I know I’m probably blowing your mind here, but here’s some examples.

Colonialism in the Americas is responsible for the genocide of anywhere in upwards of 50 million people. Beginning with Columbus’ organized extermination of the Taino people in the Caribbean, entire civilizations were wiped out for the white man’s greed.

The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, otherwise known as the Triangle Trade, was an historically unique vehicle for the exploitation of human labour where religious manumission and indentured servitude were not characteristics, it was pure chattel slavery. It was also unique in the way it exclusively victimized black people through institutionalized anti-blackness as characterized by the Code Noir. The only historic parallel is slavery in the Roman Empire, but the children of Roman slaves were always considered freeborn Roman citizens.  The children of Black slaves in the Americas were always slaves.  The only path to freedom was through escape, rebellion or the generosity of their owners.

It was also unique in its scale. 12 million people passed through ports on Africa’s West Coast, from Benin, the Gold Coast (Ghana) and Luanda among others.  Some records suggest that as many as 20 million people were forced into slavery for the vanity and profit of white masters.

European Imperialism, aided and abetted by slavery and colonialism, and its descendant, Western neo-liberalism, have no historical parallels. It is a vehicle exclusively European in origin and execution.

As for modern-day slavery, it exists and is a huge problem, but it’s also illegal in every country in the world and wherever it is practiced, it is as a consequence of neo-liberal exploitation, usually with the tacit participation of Western partners. The current situation in Qatar with the preparations for the World Cup, organized by FIFA which is based in Switzerland, is a perfect example.

Even still, it doesn’t come close. The vast edifices of Europe and America were bought and paid for with the blood of uncountable millions.

Don’t bother replying with baseless bullshit. I want numbers and proof, or you can fuck right off. I don’t have time for people who argue from ignorance, nor do I have time for a feeble argument that amounts to “someone, anecdotally, was doing something similar so therefore we are not culpable.”

The “everyone’s doing it” defence didn’t work for your mother, and it’s sure as shit not going to work here.

"Don’t bother replying with baseless bullshit" is an ironic statement when that’s what you’ve provided. You’ve absolutely included numbers, which shows a great willingness to study and read up on issues. That’s rare and damned commendable. The problem with is that you’re coming at the entire topic with a pre-existing bias against white people in general, and that’s making your points entirely one sided.

The examples you’ve provided are well referenced and actual examples of horrible things. Masses of people killed or enslaved simply for being different. Bad times. However your examples and research are entirely focused on awful things done by white people, and not as requested things done by white people that were somehow unique in their awfulness. The enslavement and genocide of other groups simply because they’re different has been going on for many thousands of years, it’s not anything new or unique to European nations or their offspring.

Saying “White people created X slave route which transported Y people” is a fact, but a useless fact. Is it true? Yes. Is it awful? Yes. Does it compare this act historically to other slave routes created by populations of other races? Not at all.

Unfortunately your entire argument is made in this way. “European Imperialism, aided and abetted by slavery and colonialism, and its descendant, Western neo-liberalism, have no historical parallels” is complete nonsense. Saying that have no parallels that you’re aware of would have been correct. Saying the scope of impact in number of people involved has no parallel would have been correct numerically; however since your current “empire” at it’s peak doesn’t even make the top 10 list for empires controlling the highest percentage of the world’s population you need to realize that a number alone doesn’t correlate to it’s world impact.

"…nor do I have time for a feeble argument that amounts to “someone, anecdotally, was doing something similar so therefore we are not culpable.”… of course you don’t. Because it’s simply not what you want to hear or will accept. People saying white people aren’t the worst ever conflicts with your personal belief, you you disregard that as some sort of denial of culpability. Your post reads like a manifesto titled "Why I Hate Whites". It shows an intense focus that’s not on hatred of slavery, or genocide, or other horrible things that have happened throughout history and continue today. The most deplorable facets of humanity are just stones to hurl at whites, because clearly *they* are the real problem.

You say nothing and seem to care nothing much for the history of genocide as old as humanity itself and the history of slavery going back at least 8,000 years. You look at one tiny segment of history and proclaim that THIS is true evil, and unparallelled in all of time and space. It gives you someone to call the bad guy. It’s also extremely sad that someone who comes across as so smart, focused, and passionate seems to waste that on hatred for a race rather than helping stop the true terrors of the world that are ongoing today.

"Don’t bother replying with baseless bullshit" is an ironic statement when that’s what you’ve provided. You’ve absolutely included numbers, which shows a great willingness to study and read up on issues. That’s rare and damned commendable.

My favourite part is where you don’t provide any numbers, links or verified resources in support of any of your own claims. Like, literally none. Just more-of-the same bewildering bullshit from someone who thinks they’re the smartest person in the room.

Like this part here:

Saying “White people created X slave route which transported Y people” is a fact, but a useless fact. Is it true? Yes. Is it awful? Yes. Does it compare this act historically to other slave routes created by populations of other races? Not at all.

I make an independently verified claim, and rather than attempting to prove your assertions, you simply gainsay me. Brilliantly done.

It was, in fact incomparable according to numerous independently verified sources. Like, I’m not sure what source you’d consider unimpeachable, but the United Nations is hardly “anti-white.” 

And really, when the locus of your objection is this:

Your post reads like a manifesto titled “Why I Hate Whites”. 

All I can conclude is that your sole implied purpose is the defense of white virtue. Hardly the objective unbiased viewpoint you’re attempting to present here. I am naming the agents of oppression, both historically and currently, and dancing around that to spare your precious feelings will accomplish jack shit. There is a distinction between “white people” and “white supremacy” and it says a lot that you’re unable to make it.

There is a wealth of resources available to you, and I’ve even kindly provided you with a few of them. It’s incumbent upon you to follow up on that.

I hope your next swing is better than this one, because it was pathetic. Good luck, slugger.

I have no cause to defend “white virtue”, I merely call racism and dishonesty where I see it regardless of what race it’s about. This issue has nothing to do with my feelings.  You blame issues on the race of others, an ideology you ascribe to them, and their ancestors. You studiously catalog the deeds that fit in with your existing view of said race and relations, while ignoring similar deeds of others or ascribing them to your issue race. It keeps you and your own heritage from being responsible. I understand the mentality. Cloak it as you will, racism remains racism.
