Mikel Ruffinelli, a 420 Pound TV Star, Becomes the New Face of the ‘Fat Acceptance Movement’

disgusting-shit  Mikel Ruffinelli, a 420 Pound TV Star, Becomes the New Face of the ‘Fat Acceptance Movement’ disgusting shit 267x300 When we say that liberalism is a mental disorder – this is exactly what we are talking about.  It would seems that being morbidly obese is a wonderful thing now. Even better, it makes you irresistibly attractive to some people.  “Men don’t fancy skinny girls, they like an hourglass figure,” according to 420 pound Mikel Ruffinelli, who has seemingly become the latest poster child for the “fat acceptance” movement which has been embraced by third wave feminists. [1]  Ruffinelli, who has a backside that measures a record 8ft around and has to take a reinforced chair with her everywhere she goes, claims she is “healthy” and that other women envy her figure. “I love my curves, I love my hips, I love my attributes,” Ruffinelli told the Daily Mail, which describes her as “something of a minor celebrity”. [3] She persists to say that she’s beautiful and that her obesity is “a blessing.” [5] She told The Mirror: “I call them my ‘diva hips’ and I’m proud I am unique,” she grins. “God made me different and gave me this journey to help others see what confidence looks like.” Mikel was born with lipedema, a condition that distributes fat in an irregular way. After each of her four children, she got wider and wider. But she insists she’s fit. [5]  Of course, back in the real world, Ruffinelli is morbidly obese and is putting herself at risk of innumerable crippling health conditions linked with her size, but that doesn’t matter to the ‘size acceptance’ crowd which, egged on by unhinged feminists, claims that “body positivity” is more important and that criticism of their obese lifestyle is “fat shaming”.

In the past, I was self-conscious about my hips and tried milkshake diets, but they didn’t work. As I got older, I learned to love my body and now I’m not afraid to show it off. … I don’t want to get bigger, but I don’t want to lose my curves. I look great. I hope I inspire women to think, ‘She’s happy with her body and I can be too!’ [9]

Hubby of 12 years Reggie adores her curves, and they renewed their vows last October. He even used to joke about it: ‘I tell people all the time: I have a license to work with heavy equipment.’ [2] And Mikel tells Closer their sex life is great:

My husband finds my shape sexy and we have an amazing time in bed — there’s no position we can’t do! [9]

fat-as-fuck  Mikel Ruffinelli, a 420 Pound TV Star, Becomes the New Face of the ‘Fat Acceptance Movement’ fat as fuck 300x300The 39-year-old mother of four admit that she has an “extreme physique.”  “Some people assume I’ve had surgery to enhance my body shape – but it’s all natural,” she insisted. “It’s the result of having four children but having large hips also runs in the family.”  [10] Sometimes it makes life a bit more complicated for her when she travels but she doesn’t mind the bothering. ‘”My hips always affect me when I’m on the train because I have to take up two seats,” she said. “I do feel bad sometimes when I see a person standing up but I can’t help it that I need two seats.” [3] Every time Mikel walks through a door, she enters sideways otherwise her gigantic hips won’t fit. She’s too big for a bath tub and has to stand sideways in the shower, or leave the door open. [5] She is forced to drive a wide truck which she accesses using a step ladder as she doesn’t fit into a standard size car. [4] Yet despite being 5′ 4″ and weighing 420lbs, Mikel, 39, who features in TLC’s documentary World’s Biggest Hips, insists that she is completely healthy, and says she sees no reason to slim down or shape up. [2] Rather than trying to lose weight, Ruffinelli insists that society needs to conform to her needs and “make things bigger.” [1] [3] One of her children, however, tells a different story of her mom’s health. Her daughter Destynee says that Mikel’s life isn’t easy because of her oversized figure. [2] She regularly faces negative attention as well, noting that she often sees others whisper, point, and laugh when they see her. People even take photos and record video of her on their phones.
