Fattening The Absurdity

Liberals indisputably have claimed they are the rational ones. They’re the factbased, settled science ones. They don’t let emotion and instinct interfere. They’re the ones whose policies will make us healthier. So why are these so-called rational, scientifically-minded, health-conscious people abandoning that?

 

Elephant In The Room

Let’s start with fat people. Establishing my ethos (you allow it to impact your reasoning when liberals do it, so here I am too): I was obese for 9 years, then dropped to the “optimal weight”, then gained until I was “overweight”, then sort of straddled the line between “optimal” and “over” for the past 4 years. Except recently- I was a few pounds shy of obese for the last month, maybe a week or two longer. Certain issues kept me exiled at my parents’ house, and as is a well-known stereotype parents love to fatten their kids up. Just ask Jon Arbuckle. Oh yeah, exercise is a foreign concept to me and I love eating.

Now that I’ve established myself as a member of the fat group, thus depriving the reader of their own credibility should they accuse me of skinny-splaining, let’s get to the meat of the discussion. Princeton, one of those allegedly esteemed Ivy-league schools, held a dinner aimed at empowering “fat identified” students. This is exactly why an Ivy-league degree isn’t even worth being used as a napkin at that dinner. We have an obesity epidemic in this country, and the Left instead decides that sickness is health. Why?

Princeton’s Lewis Center for the arts also has a course designed to reveal how fat might “be a liberating counterperformance”. I mean, liberating in the sense of liberating the soul from the body after a heart attack, sure. Again, why are these kings of health, who by their own arrogant statements of superiority must acknowledge that obese lifestyles are harmful, knowingly and deliberately promoting said lifestyles?

Ivy Leagues aren’t the only place, of course, we can drop down to Bradley University and

their “The Body Project” which tells us it’s a-ok to be fat. This is using the same crude justification that leads people to think that half the population, including themselves, is gluten intolerant when really it’s half of half of half of half of half of half of the population (about 1% of the country). In fact, Bradley does worse than tell us “if you think you are, then you are and should get a doctor’s note”. Bradley tells us that you’ll die if you DO try to lose weight.

 

My weight dropped by 30 pounds in two months. My weight jumped by 20 pounds in two months. I’m still here! Wild weight fluctuations haven’t bothered my heart, however reading all this crap about SJW’s perverting science to justify their narcissism (“I’m perfect and you’re offensive and evil for saying otherwise”) is doing a number on my cardiovascular system!

Now we go from me to the general public. Obese award-winning comedian Sofie Hagen proves why the awards council made her a winner with her virtue-signaling attack on Cancer Research UK. CRUK has researched data showing that obesity is the second-most common source of cancer, under smoking. Sofie’s Choice was to cuss out CRUK for daring to present facts that demonstrated she led an unhealthy lifestyle and then proceeded to back up her attack with points that must have come from the aforementioned Bradley University. CRUK started this campaign because only 15% of people (in the U.K.? It doesn’t say) are aware that being fat can cause cancer. If tolerant, educated, open-minded liberals only interested in spreading truth and knowledge like Sofie had their way then this bit of knowledge would be buried and forgotten right next to the 100,000,000 people that liberal ideas like Communism killed in the 20th century.

I started with fat because (at least until the last 10 years when we started getting groups

like NAAFA (yes, it is real) and being fat became a civil rights movement and forcing people to find fat attractive became a new form of brainwashing) it can commonly be agreed, even among liberals, that being fat is bad. Well liberals, this is where your ideology has brought us. Now you’re ironically not even allowed to force people to be healthy. Now Michelle and Barack Obama’s efforts to fight childhood obesity make them look like bigoted mass murderers to the Left. I just disagreed with the program because it had a one-size-fits-all solution that left kids who needed extra food starving, impacting student-athletes (this was either an effort to keep male students from exhibiting toxic masculinity through athleticism, or it was a failure by liberal scientists who think reality conforms to their models and throw out data contradicting it, at the expense of the public, much like Stalin’s agriculture program) and led to schools policing what parents gave their kids to eat thus interfering with parental decisions.

 

It’s More Than Fat

If you have investment advice for how to milk these civil rights movements (their term, not mine) for all they’re worth, I’d appreciate it. Because I know a new one on the rise that’s sure to take flight. First was transsexual, then transracial, now we have “transabled”. These are people who have perfectly functioning body parts and want to cut them off. That’s different from transsexual in that transsexual’s exchange one for the other, transabled folks just lop their parts off altogether. Period. No replacement. And it’s not just changing from one version of a healthy human to another. They want to be WITHOUT feet, hands, arms, legs, things like that. We are being told to accept this and give them what they want. We are being told that, like obesity, these are conditions that should not be treated.

I thought evolution was settled science. “Transabled” as a normal thing that humans should accept flies in the face of everything that “settled science” tells us on evolution (survival of the fittest, anyone?). Unless there is an advantage to having a mental disorder (BIID) that makes you want to be part of one of the left’s victim classes. Maybe transablism is just an adaptation for humans to survive in the Left’s system of allocating privilege based on how victimized one can claim to be. Let’s be clear– my intent is not to be condescending and demeaning to people who have the disorder; I’m attacking people who say it should be encouraged rather than treated. What’s next, saying that if someone identifies as having cancer they should not undergo chemotherapy? Haven’t liberals attacked people who do that?

Will the Left not be satisfied until the entire population consists of fat people who are missing a limb and aren’t of the same race or gender they were born as? Let’s add icing on the soy cake and say they’re all gluten-intolerant too!

What’s Next?

Let me take a stab at the next group- ones with known, communicable medical conditions. In California, it used to be a felony to deliberately give someone HIV without their consent. Not anymore, because of political correctness or social justice or something. Maybe this will come full circle and hurt another leftwing agenda, by making it a civil right to put a bullet inside someone else right next to that HIV. Both are just as lethal.

The scientifically-minded Left that wants to keep us safe and claims that any policy is justified if it saves just one life is trying to make self-harm and ill-health acceptable and encouraged. And they’re winning.

The uncontested absurdities of today are the accepted slogans of tomorrow. They come to be accepted by degrees, by dint of constant pressure on one side and constant retreat on the other — until one day when they are suddenly declared to be the country’s official ideology. – Ayn Rand

Why?

That’s a good question. If the Left is as smart as they tell us, surely they know what the consequences of encouraging all of this will be. Are these failed social experiments? Are these efforts to weaken the Western world? Notice that we don’t see them imposing this kind of thing elsewhere in the globe, not even with behaviors that are just plain taboo and don’t involve physically hurting yourself. Look at gay rights- Indiana wanted to pass a bill that’s the same thing Connecticut has, but Indiana is called “homophobic” and other states and even corporations boycott them. Meanwhile, the very same liberals denouncing and boycotting Indiana are promoting havens of gay rights like… Saudi Arabia and Iran. You remember Iran right, where they are so woke that they force women to wear hijab as a sign of solidarity against Islamophobia? Them and their woke buddies in Saudi Arabia who legally execute people for being homosexuals in a culturally tolerant manner that we are not allowed to judge (how come only Americans aren’t allowed to be intolerant anyway? Leftwing news source Daily Beast in that article tells us that we must tolerate Iran executing gays and tolerate Iran’s different ideas on sexuality, yet the Left, if it had its way, would hang Republicans for being different!). It’s almost like the Left hates Western civilization and look for any way to hurt it, while in turn empowering oppressive regimes across the globe (even empowering regimes the Left itself acknowledges to be oppressive).

Or maybe the Left figures that if they take up every cause like this, and encourages everyone to treat whatever little quirk or disease they have as a civil rights issue, they will never lose an election again since everyone will be reliant upon The Party for their personal civil rights matter.

If President Trump were just a severed head, would that be enough victim points that liberals could no longer criticize him at the risk of being called “corpore-ists”?

Being Gay in a Disposable Society

In a way, this is a political post but it’s also more of a social observation. We really do live in a disposable society materialistically speaking. We have disposable plates, disposable tableware, disposable phones. Sadly this convenience comes at a cost since it breeds a disposable mentality. People are now just as easily tossed aside like trash as the phones and eating instruments they use.

This is most noticeable in relationships, especially relationships between gay people. I’m very happy to see my straight friends finding love after trial and error, it really warms my heart. But as a gay man, I know the odds are I will die in a bed alone. Commitment went out the door with the older generation as well as tolerance and reasonable compromise. Everybody feels entitled to have exactly what they want down to the last detail.

When perfection is the name of the game things get tricky, especially when ideology is bundled in there. It boils down to two choices in the end. You can either start to believe everything your partner believes and try to think the exact same way they think and be partnered but a shallow shell of a person, or you can be yourself and die alone. Substance is not welcome in the modern LGBT relationship. Even if you are physically perfect if you are not 100% ideologically perfect then you are only good for a hookup and many guys will lie to you and manipulate you for just that.

A similar mentality applies to friendships. The only difference is that if you put out they will be your “friend” but only as long as you are on your back or inside them. The second you say you are not going to have sex or the second they get a boyfriend you always get the cold shoulder. You’re never truly their friend so much as their sex toy. Always the “friend” when they are single but disposable when they don’t need you.

Now you have to wonder when this started and why. It really wasn’t always this way. A long time ago gay men valued love and they could have a relationship with someone different. When I was younger I was a Catholic. Despite what the media will tell you Catholics are extremely tolerant. When I came out actually the congregation I was part of gathered around me in extreme support with the exception of a few members. I still try to visit them even though I have converted to another religion that’s a world apart from Christianity. This story I am about to share is about a couple in the congregation I knew before I came out who greatly contributed to it. They were both Gay men.

I’m hazy on the details but apparently, they met in the 50’s in Ocean City Maryland. They fell in love and maintained a relationship even though one of them had to ship off with the Navy. The other man was a teacher and when his lover came back they began to live together. They were together for 60 years despite the huge differences in who they were and they finally got married when Washington DC legalized it. What was key for them is that they were around in a different time when people valued other people over possessions.

What fundamentally has changed since then? Well, the first thing is that the LGBT community was formed and quickly became pawns of the Party of Hate who just years earlier were directing their hate at Gays and only changed that outward appearance when they realized they could make slaves out of another gullible demographic using lies. Frankly, when Democrats touch something it becomes corrupted very easily. So along with this growing culture of disposable things they were taught by the party that views people as possessions that they should pursue what they want while ignoring laws, the rights of others and how their actions adversely affect others. But that was not the end of this story.

Compounded by a disposable society and the manipulation of the party of hate, Gays entered the 90’s with a slightly selfish momentum but this still was not universal and they even had occasions where they could cast aside selfishness. Then in the 90’s we saw the rise of the special snowflake mentality. It took hold in some teenagers including LGBT teens but it took deeper root in children born in this decade. By the start of the 21st century a force of loud and selfish children arose which has since grown larger every year, and this manifests in the LGBT spectrum of society as gay and lesbians intolerant to what others believe and who readily dispose of anybody in their lives who challenges anything they say or believe. Even among gay conservatives the special snowflake mentality has set in a lot of them though to a lesser degree, but still substantial one. There are still some Gays and Lesbians left who are tolerant, but they are very hard to find and in my experience they live very far away.

If there is any hope I find it in two places but both become an issue of distance for someone like me. First, there are Gays and Lesbians overseas. I find they are a lot more likely to tolerate different points of view, even conservative ones. They seem more relaxed and less influenced by the special snowflake mentality or the lure of a disposable society. They look like hopeless romantics from where I sit and that’s a good thing. The next are gays who sadly live far away from me but show tolerance or objectivity. There are 2 or 3 tolerant ones that I have met online and some are even registered Democrats, sadly they often live 50 or 80 or 200 miles from me. Even with some of these two categories of guys I sadly find myself trigger-shy and I end up wondering if they are actually this tolerant or whether they are just acting tolerant because they find me attractive.

That’s the sum of things really. The hope is though with each generation things will get better. I am almost certain that I will die alone, but I’m hoping that younger gay men and women will rebel against the dogma of this generation with a new one of their own which truly fosters total tolerance and respect for others. Maybe in the next 10 or 20 or maybe even 30 years, a political movement will form that is truly Pro-LGBT and not just pretending to be to get votes for votes for a political party while setting them up for failure. The sad thing though is for someone like me it is too late, and barring a miracle person entering my life I will live alone and die with only my baby sister and her family there to comfort me on my deathbed. I will not be alone in a literal sense but I will have spent my life alone after sharing what little love extra I had to share with all of the wrong people.
