What do you get when you get a “fat and body positive sex therapist” and a college. You get child abuse advocacy. Oh, she also thinks being skinny is a “white supremacy beauty ideal” – Whatever that means.
Sonalee Rashatwa gave a speech on “radical fat liberation” at the St. Olaf College in Minnesota and was organized by their “Women’s and Gender Studies Department” and “Center for Equity and Inclusion” (unless you are a white man).
During the two hour lecture she compares personal trainers to Nazis and childhood diets as sexual molestation.
“I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex,”
That’s right everyone, putting your children on a diet is basically rape – How does anyone take this stuff seriously? This kind of talk is advocating for child abuse. There are some crazy diets out there, but eating healthy isn’t one of them, and letting your children eat whatever they want because they can’t consent would be considered neglect.
“We should be critical of the use of science and the production of knowledge to continue promoting this idea that certain bodies are fit, able, and desirable…is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?”
There are plenty of reasons someone may gain weight that can be out of their control, like certain medications, but most of the time it’s over eating. And being heavy can lead to all sorts of diseases and even takes heavy tolls on your body. According to this website, obesity kills 300,000 people a year and it isn’t because of your experience of weight stigma.
She even talked about how the Christchurch shooter, shot people and was crazy because he was a personal trainer. I’ve known a lot of personal trainers and I’m pretty sure none of them went off the rails and shot up people (well there was one crazy one…). This woman is crazy, if you are interested in more, you can read my source here.
