Fat hacks should be a thing

fancybidet:

Fat people adapt to a world that is unkind to them and environments that ostracise them. I’ve started to realise that the secret ways in which I maneuver through the world could be seen as fat hacks, but usually I am so covert in my fat hacking because I don’t want to draw attention to my body. A lot of the time I don’t even realise I’m fat hacking because it’s just a normal practice in response to a world I don’t fit in to.

I’m going to be thinking about ways I fat hack my life and write about them and it’d be cool to read about the way other people fat hack too.

After designers refused to dress her for the Oscars, Melissa McCarthy launched her own clothing company

"When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed," McCarthy said in the July issue of the magazine. "Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers — very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people — and they all said no."
Instead, McCarthy walked the 2012 red carpet in a dress by Marina Rinaldi, a designer available at high-end deparment stores. While she looked great in the frock, the fact that designeers were unwilling or (even more implausable) unable to design a dress for the A-list star says a lot about the stigma still attached to plus-sized fashion.

I’ve often lamented that I need a t-shirt that says “I have a fucking head you know.”

Someone needs to make that shirt. Now.

Our society as a whole believes that fat people deserve shaming, that shaming might make us lose weight. It may work for a short period, motivating a fat person to try weight loss yet again. However, shame makes us feel less worthy so that we actually take worse care of ourselves in the end.


Society has a marked interest in fat people feeling shame. I previously spoke about Foucault and scapegoats. Society loves scapegoats, the oppressed, but they love scapegoats who think they deserve to be scapegoated even more. Then, when things are blamed on the oppressed, they do not fight back. The oppressed do not resist the poor treatment they receive because they feel ashamed. Society gets the relief of having a scapegoat without the muss and fuss of resistance.
