Fat woman dances ‘to banish body shame’

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in March 2014:

Mail Online today has a link to the following video:


Apparently the objective of the ‘exercise’ is ‘to banish body shame’. But how does it do that? It doesn’t. The woman collapses in a heap after 80 seconds. The spectacle is grotesque and people should tell her so. If girls and young women are as influenced by role models as we’re told, what kind of a role model is she, effectively telling girls and young women it’s OK – cool, even – to be clinically obese, despite the health problems that can accompany obesity? The video’s been watched by over 2.5 million people.

It’s yet another example of the mindset displayed on a daily basis by Laura Bates and the whiny women who contribute to The Everyday Sexism Project – ‘I don’t like some things about the world, so the world must change’. These woman are infantilising themselves and other women. For the sake of herself and others, the woman in the video needs to diet and lose weight. End of.
