Behold the "fatness spectrum," a real thing that actually exists
· May 24, 2022 ·

No, "InfiniFat" isn't a Scandinavian compound word you've never heard of; nor is it a bad joke from a Douglas Adams short story. It's a real thing on the "fatness spectrum," which is—and I cannot stress this enough—also a real thing:

Just to clarify, this is not some kind of random concept that just recently dropped on TikTok. It's something that's been around for quite a while:

Yes, this is a Marxist attempt to arrange people in hierarchies based on how fat they are. Just like a slightly melanated person can't criticize a very melanated person under Critical Race Theory, in Critical Fat Theory, a moderately obese person can't criticize an "infinifat" person.

This literally promotes fatness as victimhood, in other words, encourages people to get fatter to be at the top of the social hierarchy.

The categories (these are so funny y'all):

  • Small Fat – Find clothes that fit at mainstream brands and can shop in many stores.
  • Medium Fat – Shop at some mainstream brands, but mostly dedicated plus brands and online
  • Superfat – Wear the highest sizes at plus brands. Can often only shop online
  • INFINIFAT – Very difficult to find anything that fits, even online. Often require custom sizing.

There's a lot of debate raging lately over whether or not someone can be healthy while still being morbidly obese. The answer, of course, is: No, you cannot. Absolutely not. Obesity is essentially a guarantor of serious immediate and long-term health issues. Few things are so predictable.

Take Johns Hopkins University, for instance:

Being overweight or obese raises your risk for health problems. These include coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and certain types of cancer.

Or the World Health Organization:

Raised BMI is a major risk factor for noncommunicable diseases such as:

  • cardiovascular diseases (mainly heart disease and stroke), which were the leading cause of death in 2012;
  • diabetes;
  • musculoskeletal disorders (especially osteoarthritis – a highly disabling degenerative disease of the joints);
  • some cancers (including endometrial, breast, ovarian, prostate, liver, gallbladder, kidney, and colon).

We could go on and on.

This "fat acceptance" isn't going to end well, at least for the people who live these incredibly unhealthy lifestyles. Call me crazy.
