Clearly and obviously it’s impossible to believe everything the Woken SS tells us must be believed without using a certain amount of heavily tortured logic. It’s still wondrous to see the twists in some of that being used though.
For example, if we ever step off the reservation – as that word just shows I have – of acceptable language then we will, or should be perhaps, shamed as a result of our doing so. Using people of color instead of colored to refer to higher melanin inheritances will equally lead to screaming harpies shouting that we should be shamed, shamed.
But if you’re fat enough to be a danger to shipping when wet the mere idea of muttering about healthy BMIs is in itself harmful:
She is implicitly stating that Lizzo needs to change her body through weight loss, based on assumptions about Lizzo’s lifestyle and health, and is stigmatizing fat bodies in the process. Weight stigma is known to have negative health effects while also encouraging less healthy behaviors, which calls into question the wisdom of deploying it as a tactic to improve anyone’s health.
The stigma is harmful. Which, presumably, means that we should not stigmatise those with the wrong ideas about race, gender or, even, weight. Because to stigmatise is harmful to those being stigma’d.
That is, if this fatuity about not being mean to lardbuckets is true then Twitter is bankrupt.
Which isn’t, of course, what the earnest young idiot at Vox.com means to say but logically must follow from what they have.
Of course, looking at 50 years of maturity in the rear view mirror always does mean the young are incomprehensible, it’s just that with this lot it’s their fault not the maturity’s.
