Since everything else in the world is white supremacy, this “fat sex therapist” thought she’d toss in fitness too, because why not?
Sonalee Rashatwar was speaking at St. Olaf College for the St. Olaf College’s Wellness Center, Women’s and Gender Studies Department, and Center for Equity and Inclusion. Because people are still buying into this BS.
From Campus Reform:
“We should be critical of the use of science and the production of knowledge to continue promoting this idea that certain bodies are fit, able, and desirable…is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?” Rashatwar asked. She then connected the science suggesting that obesity is unhealthy to Nazism, saying that “fatphobic” science is “often actually eugenic science….eugenic science is Nazi science.”
However, she then pivoted to support scientific findings as she pondered “intentionally pursuing weight loss,” claiming that “what we’re discovering scientifically is that that’s not possible.”
After addressing the topic of science and making her claim that there is no connection between high blood pressure and obesity, Rashatwar turned to discuss political philosophy and policy.
“This conversation about pushing off our own wellbeing onto the individual is part of these 1980s Reagan era policies that again try to move that structural obligation of a system and this social safety net onto the individual,” Rashatwar said, “instead of thinking that there should be social supports that also help me to subsidize my food costs.
Yeah she’s insane.
“I do not think it’s surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand was also a fitness instructor,” Rashatwar said. After making this claim, she added that the shooting is “a clear communication that there’s still an idealized body. Nazis really love this idea of an idealized body, and so it makes a lot of sense to me that a fitness instructor…might also think about an idealized body in this thin white supremacist way.”
You watch this crap I ain’t gonna:
You know, the Unites States became insanely prosperous and innovative because of freedom and individual responsibility. More and more, these campaigns are robbing us of agency and power and making us believe we are impotent cogs in the machinery of an all-powerful government.
