The National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance is A Real Thing

( A group calling itself the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA) says that when First Lady Michelle Obama created her anti-obesity “Let’s Move!” initiative, she unfairly singled out fat kids, turning them into targets. Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., Monday, NAAFA public relations director Peggy Howell said the First Lady “essentially gave permission to everyone to condemn the children with higher body weights.” Howell called Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign “well-intentioned, but somewhat misdirected.” “What I mean by ‘misdirected’ is that rather than educating and encouraging our nation to create healthy practices for all children, focusing on the health of all our children, children of higher body weight have been singled out and the focus of the campaign is on weight reduction and not on improving children’s health.  “Studies indicate that children of higher body weight are 65 percent more likely to be bullied than children of lower body weight. When our First Lady said that we have to wipeout childhood obesity in one generation, she essentially gave permission to everyone to condemn the children with higher body weights. How this translates in real life is that these children experience more ridicule, more teasing, more bullying, and the perpetrators feel justified in their actions because after all, the First Lady said these kids have to go.” Howell said being targets — whether intended or not — causes heavy children “pain and suffering” – even depression and suicide.

The NAAFA is literally the worst group of people I have ever heard of. They are fat and want other people to be fat so they don't feel bad about themselves. Like, these people are the same to me who try and stop kids from getting vaccines, or the people who try and stop abortions. Obesity, disease and not being wanted can all lead to a shitty unhealthy lives.

Being targeted can lead to "pain and suffering" but it can also lead to losing weight and becoming healthy. Hell, the First Lady should just hire bullies, they would be just as effective. Just torment all the fat kids til they lose weight. Mission Accomplished.
