[September 21, 2023] Action without consequences. “No consequences” is at the heart of the fat liberation movement in America. Zyanha Bryant, a morbidly obese woman community organizer and BLM activist is now the face of fat liberation. As I understand it, she wants to remove the stigma associated with being fat.
“So when I think about what fat liberation looks like to me, I think about centering the voices of those who live in and who maneuver through spaces and institutions in a fat body.” – Zyanha Bryant
Fat Liberation, also known as Fat Pride and Fat Activism, is a social movement that seeks to remove the social stigma of fatness from social attitudes by pointing out the social obstacles that fat people face to the general public. Many of their supporters claim that science says being fat has zero health consequences. They also say that “fat” and “obese” are slurs that cause harm. Of course, they do not consider the well-established fact that obesity causes serious physical harm.
NAAFA, the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (started by a man with a fat fetish), hopes to bring acceptance to being fat and reduce ridicule. Their philosophy contests society’s “stubborn generalization that associates fatness with disease and poor health outcomes.” They prefer the term “larger bodies” in place of the slurs.

Let’s be clear: your behavior has consequences. Many fat ambassadors who rallied folks to the fat cause have died early. This is not one of those causes you want to follow.
“You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.” – paraphrasing Ayn Rand’s seminal essay “The Objectivist Ethics”
The fat liberation movement is all about denial. Those who adhere to this fat ideology are slaves to the destruction it causes. Eventually, it will catch up to them, and they will regret the results because actions have consequences.
