So, a handful of shitty, corporate produced "music product" songs equals all of society?
Actually it kind of sounds like she's saying facebook memes equals all of society, which is arguably worse.
I have known a lot of fat girls who will point to something like Baby Got Back as a kind of anthem about how it's ok to be fat... which is sooooo not what that song is about. Sir Mix-a-lot doesn't give a fuck how stuffed your butt is if you don't got that itty bitty waist.
I don't know if it's her lighting or her makeup or if that's just how she, but this chick is gross. Her face is activating some kind of uncanny valley reaction in my brain. She looks like a puppet or something.

>>>There is something to be said about the ongoing idea that "real" women are incredibly fat and people who diet and exercise are mythological creatures dreamed up by Big Fashion Magazines to make fat people feel bad for some reason.
>>>And if you want to talk about dangerous ideas that could easily gain traction in a capitalist society, "Don't worry, consume as much as you want because your demographic is perfect the way it is" isn't that far-fetched. The psuedo-intellectuals who think saying "the women on the cover of Cosmo are Photoshopped!!!" is some startling revelation are about 20 years too late to the party.

dear god this woman is annoying.
body positivity isn't a philosophy that was created or perpetuated by mainstream hip hop. looking to hip hop for organic feminism is like looking to elvis for organic racial progressiveness. it might work someday, but it's not a logical place to start.
the fat acceptance movement, which is what she's getting confused about here, is also not "body positive" in the traditional sense.
they don't really shame people for being slim. they acknowledge the sexist-racist structures that have marketed the desire to be "skinny" to women, and attempt to dismantle those *structures*. not skinny women.
this lady is so god damned annoying.
"they don't really shame people for being slim. they acknowledge the sexist-racist structures that have marketed the desire to be "skinny" to women, and attempt to dismantle those *structures*. not skinny women."
Some of them do, but the Internet being the Internet there is also a vocal minority who are essentially fat supremacists.
"they don't really shame people for being slim"
Yes they do. If you are a thin woman with curves the "fat acceptance" people direct their ire at you constantly. My special lady friend experiences this all the time. There must be something wrong with her, like she's hurting herself solely to conform to the patriarchy's oppressive beauty requirements.
I think people should love themselves, but everyone really wishes they were the ones who turned heads when they walked into a bar no matter how much they preach about the male gaze. Of course nobody wants to be constantly subjected to that kind of attention, but most people are deprived of the chance to ever have the experience of being the princess of the ball. How is that fair? It isn't.
"Yes they do. If you are a thin woman with curves the "fat acceptance" people direct their ire at you constantly."
You seem to have trouble with the concept of a "vocal minority".
That kind of thinking is what allowed the South Park creators to make up PC Principal. It has about the same basis in reality.
Judging by responses your "special lady friend" gets on facebook is about the dumbest possibly way to measure this.

Sexiness is not a conspiracy. ConAgra could spend 85 billion dollars trying to tell me fat people are sexy and it wouldn't change my mind because finding slim, healthy, muscular people attractive has been pretty common for about 3,000 years.
But then again, maybe if you write a 600-page dissertation on how liking big boobs is due to colonialism I might change my mind.
"change my mind because finding slim, healthy, muscular people attractive has been pretty common for about 3,000 years. "
Because a group of people with certain preferences exist, other groups of people with differences do not. Got it.
Fat Supremacist is now my new favorite word. Thanks OZ.

Women take shit for being unattractive, and they take shit for being attractive.
Women take shit for being fat, and they take shit for being skinny.

Don't thank me, thank the internet, because they've been around since the 90s.

This woman obviously has a shamefully flat ass.
I, too, have a shamefully flat ass.
I like butts.
I reject antiderrierism.

You can always tell how fat a person is by how offended they get at the idea that diet and exercise is a good thing.
And that tips it. Go be a shitty person elsewhere.

How much would it cost to convince you that you can only have sex with so many people, most people are not going to have sex with you, and so sexiness is not their only value.
What the food industry has done is spend a shitload of money convincing people like you that when people are fat, it's their own fault. Something like eighty per cent of processed foods contain sugar, because people crave sugar, and sugar calories are processed differently than other calories, through the liver. The truth is that we're all being poisoned at once. It's not necessarily your fault if you're addicted to a drug that was fed fed to you with your school lunch. For the first time ever, we've got children coming down with what used to be called "adult onset diabetes", and if you're not fat, and you're under 35, chances are, your day is coming.
The problem is society-wide, but the food industry lobbies against society-wide solutions. We're all expected to solve it as individuals, which is another marketing opportunity for the industry.
I don't think that "acceptance" means that fat is good. Consider Alcoholics Anonymous. Acceptance is the first step, but that doesn't mean you're supposed to keep drinking.
