These are the words of Steve Miller, do you remember him? He did a show called Fat Families where he basically bullied people into exercise and eating salad by calling them “massive fatties” at every opportunity in order to motivate them to lose weight.
Well I unfortunately stumbled upon his twitter feed yesterday and unsurprisingly it is filled with fat shaming posts. What does surprise me is how far he is willing to push his condemnation of overweight people. His feed is filled with venomous statements labelling people “fat” “lazy” and stating that they aren’t curvy, just fat.
Here’s the charmer himself telling the world about the “reality” and “truth” that fat people are unattractive and aren’t able to be in a loving relationship.
Also fat people don’t have sex. It’s the truth, it must be!!! This vile Alan Carr wannabe said so!! All I can think is that he has been taking a leaf out of the Katie Hopkins school of fame and hopes that if he can be as offensive as possible then he will gain fame. He extolls himself as ‘the Simon Cowell of the slimming world’ with his Mr Nasty character and believes that fat shaming helps to motivate people to lose weight.
What a dick.
I really want to post an intelligent and reasoned argument as to why this vile toad is wrong, but I only have expletives! How very fucking dare he? His ‘reality’ and ‘truth’ is bullshit. He doesn’t get to judge others on their outward appearance and assume that his fucked up, warped view of the world is the truth.
“The reality is; most men don’t want an overweight lover so as soon as they begin to get heavier their partner begins to look elsewhere. After all, who wants a fat woman on top of them in the bedroom?”
What world is he living in? His assumption that all women want to be a size 6 and all men would baulk at the sight of a woman larger than a supermodel is fucking ridiculous.
You know what is sexy? Confidence. There is nothing hotter than a person who glows with self love, who is happy, joyous and loving life. You know that person who lights up a room when they enter, who is interesting and clever and witty and you are drawn to them. And they may be a size 6 or a size 26, the outer shell doesn’t matter when you are in the presence of someone awesome.
You know what isn’t sexy? A person who tries to make money from shaming people into feeling bad about themselves, who name-calls and belittles others. Somebody who takes their own hurt and pain and puts it onto others.
Worry not, because they amazing world of twitter has responded with vigour. Awesome blogger and fat activist Daisy replied.
Whilst I pissed myself at Fat Becky‘s response…
Yeah, yeah I know lowering ourselves to mocking his appearance isn’t the most adult thing to do, but sometimes, some people are so vile that they kind of deserve it…
There is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight, get fitter or change your lifestyle, but how many really believe that someone bullying them will help? No one should lose weight because someone else makes them feel bad about themselves, weight loss and getting fitter should be a personal choice and one that is emotionally healthy for them.
And that personal choice goes both ways, a friend told me recently that she had been dieting for years and had started a new regime, her husband sighed heavily and told her that he would rather her gain another 5 stone than him have to see her punish herself any longer. Not everyone wants to be thin, nor does every partner care what size their loved one is.
After my surgeries I was a little shy in front of my husband, I wore long vests in the bedroom to hide my changed body, this became a habit that I eventually tired of. I realised I wasn’t fooling him, he didn’t think I was a size 0 under my size 16 vest!!! And so I rid myself of the garments and shook what my momma gave me… The result? An honest conversation where he told me that when I covered up it made him worry that I didn’t trust him to love me, it also made him think I couldn’t be enjoying myself if I was thinking about my stomach.
This vile man, Steve Miller, would like you all to believe that if you are fat, no one will love you. I call bullshit. If the people around you only care about the number in the back of your dress then dump those fuckers NOW. True friends, partners, lovers care about you as a whole package and your size and shape pales into insignificance when it comes to your self esteem, confidence, joy and character.
Sex and love are about respect, trust, fun and excitement. These things come through self esteem and a great relationship not through salads and treadmills.
Fat is not sexy? What a load of shit!!!
No make up, no photoshop, size 16 and in the words of the amazing Amy Schumer, I can catch a dick any time I want…
Steve Miller, go fuck yourself!
