Okay. To “clear this up real quick” if multiple people are all having the same issues with your post, you probably were in fact being offensive. It’s nice that you weren’t intending to be, but it would be nicer if you stopped justifying and just…apologized. Or listened. Or didn’t say anything and just made an effort to word things better in the future.
The point of what I said before is that — standing alone, because that’s how all posts on Tumblr stand — the post links weight and health, and it also makes being fat something to fear. You’re defending to me the fact that thin insecure people need to be told that they aren’t overweight — the message isn’t that they are wonderful the way they are but that they LACK a hateable quality. All that does is make being fat something off in the distance to avoid. Don’t worry, you’re not fat! Not, “so what, you have rolls, so does everyone”. Of COURSE “even” thin people are insecure, but it’s immensely privileged and fatphobic to tell thin people they don’t have to be insecure about BECOMING fat. If that’s something worth saying what the hell are fat people supposed to do?
You say that you don’t believe that all larger people are unhealthy. Yet a sentence later you mention that SOMETIMES obesity can be unhealthy (which presumably is a justification for having mentioned so much that ‘you’re healthy!’ in the post). Sure, sometimes obese people can be unhealthy, and sometimes thin people can be. It isn’t relevant to rolls.
You also haven’t grasped my problem with that entire discussion, which is that health is not a good metric to tell someone to cheer up about. Unhealthy people are valid people. If someone is obese and has diabetes, for example, they have not failed as a person and are still worthy of love and care by themselves and others, any more than an amputee or a cancer patient or someone with depression. Do you congratulate your friends that they haven’t been hospitalized recently? No? Then let’s get away from judging healthy thin people vs healthy fat people vs unhealthy fat people.
Also, no. It wouldn’t be considered thin shaming if thin people were left out. For one thing, thin people carry privilege that fat people do not. For another thing, if this were a post about how everyone has rolls and fat people don’t have to look smooth and hourglassy, thin people wouldn’t be relevant to the discussion. If it were a post about how …everyone has visible ribs sometimes and you don’t have to worry, you’re not getting underweight??… I guess it would be a little thin shaming but that’s NOT WHAT THIS DISCUSSION IS ABOUT.
