Why is it when people “confront” me about my fatness, they never ask me shit about my actual health? As I’ve pointed out before, no stranger ever walks up to me and asks me if I’m pooping regularly. No one walks up to me and asks if I’ve had a pap smear lately. No one ever asks me the intimate details about my period and yet they are comfortable telling me U GONNA DIE FATASS.

Why?

How is it that in spite of the numerous times I have asked openly and honestly for someone to explain this to me rationally without using ad hominem attacks or assume I’m about to drop dead of any number of obesity correlated illnesses, no one has EVER in the history of my blog taken me up on it?

Talking about fat, health, and why some ways of expressing apparent concern are just wrong.
