Fat girl here.
You are all missing the point: it's none of your fucking business.
Let me explain: If the original question is:
Tell me, as a Satanist, what are your views on obesity.
Then my answer, as a Satanist, is that my body is not subject to the (mostly hyperbolic) opinions of others.
The strict comparison between food and drugs is that food is not illegal. It is also not
unSatanic to be a fat bastard if that's what you want. The individual gets to decide. You may personally judge them, but expecting others to agree is like expecting them to adopt your political opinions. (And we know where people like that can stick it?)
But apart from that, I find the entire discussion around fat and health so ridiculously absurd, because the ostensible health focus obscures the true focus: aesthetics. It's popular to think that fat is gross. It has been framed as a loss of self-control, weak character, and generally that someone "doesn't care" about their appearance.
It's bullshit. It's about the popular aesthetics of what's "in". It's a fucking trend, and nothing more. During medieval periods it was beautiful to be fat, because it demonstrated to the world that you were wealthy, and didn't have to do physical labour. Starving peasants were thin. It was a sign of malnutrition and poverty. My point, is that notions of what's "healthy" is just another way of discussing what's the latest fad in body aesthetics.
If health were the true concern, then why is not the focus on all kinds of unhealthy behaviours? No one is approaching thin people eating junk food and making snide or aggressive comments about their "health." And even if you do think fat is gross why the overt disdain? I find the fat-haters are really self-haters, looking for a socially acceptable channel for their inner rage.
I'm not saying you have to like fat--your personal aesthetic preferences are your own--but I am saying that it's none of your business.
And newsflash to those who think fatties can't get laid: some people LIKE the fat. The fat itself IS the fetish. It's not popular to say so, but they do exist.
But apart from even all of that, my choices are mine and mine alone. They do not belong to some group Satanists-approved list of things. I've been up and down the scale many, many times, and keeping weight off is a daily, all-emcompassing, high-commitment challenge. Sometimes I've succeeded, sometimes I haven't. But I never
let others dictate what they think
I should look like. Because even at my thinnest, I'd still be far too fat for the fat-obsessed.
I gave up caring what other people think of my body a long time ago. Whatever shape I'm in, I accept it as is. I don't have anxiety about my shape, and I certainly don't care what other Satanists think of my body.
