‘Fat Sex Therapist’ says fitness advocates are NAZIS, and diets for kids are CHILD ABUSE

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.

Here’s more:

“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.

I love all of God’s children. Honestly I do. But that does not mean I must engage in dialog with everyone. Once someone believes in the collective and “social safety net” over the individual, our conversation ends with a polite, “Have a blessed day. We are not going to get anywhere productive furthering this conversation.”

There is a mentality that stretches across party lines that says, “Anyone who is the opposite of me is my enemy, and deserves all the calumny I can heap upon them.” This woman may have an undiagnosed condition like hypothyroidism that got her ridiculed throughout her life for being as someone here put it, “a blob.” Or maybe she likes her fast food. For whatever reason, she’s overweight, and has had it up to here with people making fun of her for it. That makes her lash out against fitness instructors who she sees as “the enemy.” Boy, isn’t she an oddball? Until you look at the various threads here and see if anyone criticizes someone we like they’re treated like “the enemy.” Suddenly this woman’s mainstream — she just weighs more than most of us and has a different “enemy.” Maybe we should all stop with the binary thinking.… Read more »

What isn’t black and white? Well, matters of personal opinion on art, beauty, love and a million other things. And that’s just off the top of my feeble brain. Now you can, in your tiny universe of one, announce you’re the final say on whether that music is good, whether that art is beautiful, whether cats make better pets than dogs, etc. But in a lot of things there are lists of positives and negatives and mitigating factors that many, perhaps a shrinking “most,” but I’d still say likely most, can see.

Also, what is right or wrong might depend highly on age factors. Your grandmother and I don’t care to be called “dude.” It’s considered insulting. Amongst young people, everybody’s “dude.” Although it’s an insult in my book, I have to realize you didn’t mean it that way and it’s a cultural thing.

Well, matters of personal opinion on art, beauty, love and a million other things.

You so sure about that? (It’s a subject I’ve studied for years and years and years. Is there an objective reality to the aesthetic? There is for everything else – morality included. Maybe we just don’t know how to measure it. Yet.)

“Your painting is beautiful.”
“Your painting is not beautiful.”

Those can’t both be true. One might have an opinion about it, as you say, but the opinion says nothing about the painting (it says something about the person viewing it). And that opinion might be objectively wrong. But again, how do we measure that. But the painting being beautiful either is or it isn’t.

No, that’s objective reality.

Again:

Law of Identity. A = A.
Principle of Non-Contradiction. A ≠ ~A.

The painting is A.
The painting is ~A.

Those statements cannot be simultaneously true. It’s one or the other. Not both. We might not know the answer, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have an objective answer.

Black or white. Is or Is Not. A or ~A.

This is the fundamental axiom of reality.

I can tell your opinion on this is fixed, but two people can look at the same painting — one sees beauty, the other ugliness. The painting actually can be both. That’s art, which doesn’t fit into your “fundamental axiom of reality.” But you’ve got the world figured out so you can make sense of it, so I’m not here to upset your apple cart. In a way, I actually envy you your view. It was one I tried to hold when I was in my adolescence and everything seemed so slippery. I wanted everything to make sense and fall into one of two categories. That has since not been my experience. But, boy, did I ever try to cram those round pegs into those square holes!

Logical axioms are not opinions.

but two people can look at the same painting — one sees beauty, the other ugliness [aka not beauty]

OK, break it back down to logical terms. One sees A, the other sees ~A.

One of them is wrong.

The painting actually can be both.

No, it can’t. The opinions can differ, but the objective reality of the painting cannot.

I wanted everything to make sense and fall into one of two categories

Well, it does. The struggle isn’t understanding that – it’s accurately categorizing. You, like most, probably experience great frustration at that fact, so you just throw your hands up in exasperation, give up, and call it “gray area.”

And that’s just intellectual laziness.

Oh, and before you take offense to that – I’m guilty of the same thing. But rather than saying, “It’s gray,” – I take the more accurate (but terrifying to most people) position:

“I don’t know.”

People hate not knowing. Stare into the abyss, and all that. I don’t have a problem with it. Once you accept the objective nature of reality, not knowing becomes less daunting. Rather than be intimidated by it, you become interested in figuring it out.

(Hence why I’ve spent decades on the issue of objective aesthetics.)

Message to Sonalee Rashatwar:

Slow your roll, there, Cupcake. I’m guessing by your comments that your political philosophy is more in line with Liberal / Radical Liberal, so I’m confused as to why you’re poo-pooing Eugenics. You can’t mention “eugenics” without mentioning Margaret Sanger, the FOUNDER of “eugenics,” who also championed ABORTIONS for non-white minorities, of which you might qualify in Margaret’s (evil) eyes.

Admittedly, I don’t get out much outside of work, but I’m pretty sure “Rashatwar” isn’t Anglo / European.

Personally, I find it reprehensible and pure EVIL, but Liberals can’t get enough of Abortions – You liberals champion it, defend it and even ENCOURAGE IT – So it’s a bit disingenuous that you only have a problem with the idea of Eugenics when it means getting off your PHAT A** and going for a walk.

Who knew that “exercise” was the bridge too far for you.

In the cult of leftist politics, victimhood has taken on the status of sainthood. This is a prime example. The left has taken Saul Alinsky’s rule #6 “A good tactic is one your people enjoy” a tad too far. Now their victims are desperately grasping at whatever straws they can find to blame white people, patriarchy, and anybody but themselves for their failings.

Do I endorse “fat shaming?” No, a person doesn’t need to be told they’re fat if they are. They have a mirror, they know. And they also know it’s not good. When they decide to do something about it, they will. And not a minute before.

But what this woman is doing is plain stupid, not to mention delusional. If you look at biographical information of celebrities or famous people from the past who were obese and have since passed, check out their health histories and cause of death. It’s not pleasant. And none of that happened because of “weight stigma.”

I used to be fat and now I’m not (well, only a little bit). I know something about the struggle, it’s not easy. But fooling yourself only makes it more difficult in the long run.

All this woman is doing is excusing her own laziness while feeding her face. It’s proven obesity can cause many physical conditions. For one thing, the knees and hips won’t be able to take the weight. Every obese person I know suffers from more than one medical condition. Speaking for me, right now I’d like to lose 10 to 20 lbs so I started walking. My problem isn’t really what I eat as much as it is lack of exercise and walking is the best exercise I know.

sjmomsjmom I hear ya sista! About 15 years ago I lost nearly 70 pounds through life changing diet and a personal trainer at a gym. It really worked. Over the years I have been able to maintain the good eating habits but not so much on the exercise so some of the weight creeped back.

I would also like to lose 10-15 (don’t care about that last 10!) and I know at this point upping my excercise level is the only way. I just get so bored, though. Maybe we can motivate each other.

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

What constitutes as a desirable body is subjective, however what constitutes as a fit body is not.

is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?

No, it’s your fatness.

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.”

Uhh no. The Nazis didn’t invent eugenics. It was already quite popular in Western Europe and the United States at that time. Darwinism is what laid the foundations for eugenics.

People with undesirable qualities love to do this (especially with weight, depression/anxiety, and especially with any failings regarding their kids). They find a way to excuse it so they can rationalize not making any effort to improve. It used to be a “blame something!” mentality. It’s not my fault I’m overweight, I suffer from [insert excuse]. They love that because it CAN be true for someone – therefore how does anyone know it’s not true for them too.

Now they even take umbrage with the notion that it’s something that needs to be improved, shifting it to a “blame society!” mentality. It comes back to a desire not to accept any fault for the way they are. If they’re blameless and it’s “out of their control” – they don’t have to do anything. And “you’re part of the problem!” by not accepting it.

My personal favorite was this time when a terrible artist posted her terrible painting expecting all her friends to fawn all over it because they liked her as a person. Well, regardless that I did not like her as a person – her painting was objectively crap. It was based on a photograph, see – but the lines and angles were all off, there were technical mistakes that screwed up the depth she was trying to achieve, basically it looked like the post-abortion remains of a bastard lovechild between Monet and Dali. So, I pointed a few of these technical things out. And I was honestly even pretty nice about it, trying to be genuinely, but honestly, helpful.
