Why Most Feminists are Fat and Ugly?

o-KELLY-MARTIN-BRODERICK-facebook  Why Most Feminists are Fat and Ugly? o KELLY MARTIN BRODERICK facebook Some people suggest that Feminism And Obesity Are Self-Reinforcing. Blogger Anatoly Karlin noticed that there is a upper cap on female attractiveness, which are the feminine ideals hardwired into us by evolution, but there is no downward cap. This is in direct contrast to male attractiveness, because male attractiveness is strongly based with ability, and strong relativistic. ie: A man can always become more powerful, more wealthy, more physically capable. In this fashion, feminism is intrinsically a downward trend because the only thing a beautiful women can do to that makes herself more desired in a society, is to reduce the amount of beauty in that society. This is why your typical Third Wave feminist or rape activist is fat, has a manjaw, or is otherwise unattractive. If you are ugly, devaluing beauty is not bad evolutionary strategy. [3] He also suggest that there could be a correlation between the numbers of Women’s Studies programs and female obesity. [16]

Blogger Monica Persson explain what it’s like and what it means to be a “fat feminist.” This is what she said: “Being a Fat Feminist means that I don’t spend all my time counting calories, or hiding behind dark colored, vertical striped clothing. Being a Fat Feminist means I carry a chair to a classroom when the chairs provided are too small, instead of dropping the class. Being a Fat Feminist means that I accept and love myself just the way I am.” [8] She confess that her evolution from chubby girl to Fat Feminist would not have been possible without other large women. Support groups, regional conferences, exercise classes and magazines have been created to empower people of size and she draw strength from them all. [8] Treating obesity with current medical technology has a 10% success rate at best. The World Health Organization and the US Department of Health agreed in 1992 that dieting and weight loss surgery can be dangerous to human health. To add insult to injury, the medical profession blames fat adults when their ill advised recommendations don’t work. She tells her readers that listening to the conference participants, her frustration and anger at the medical profession grew. She realized that her experiences with doctors was not unique. [8] All those frustrations are what pushed her to become a “militant.” This where the “feminist” part kicks in:

Weight prejudice is a true form of bigotry in every sense of the word. Like sexism, it elevates the status of one group of people at the expense of another. Women, more often than men, are the victims of size discrimination in employment, education, and adoption. Fat women also suffer more social discrimination based on size. [8]

Becoming a “fat feminist” also have something to do with men’s criticism, according to #NoBodyShame spokesperson and My Big Fat Fabulous Life reality star Whitney Way Thore. This is what she told Starcam:

A man who disrespects a woman to whom he is not attracted makes obvious that he believes a woman’s sole purpose is to be an object of attraction to him – that conventional attractiveness (thinness) is the ONLY marker of a worthy woman and that a woman who does not fulfill her primary obligation of turning him on is therefore not worthy and has no value. […] As a woman and a feminist, I wholeheartedly know that how attractive I am to a particular person, or society at large, does not dictate how smart I am, how capable I am, how talented I am, how well I can serve others, or how I happy and fulfilled as a human being I can be. I know that my life and my purpose are so much bigger than being attractive to someone. [9]
