What I genuinely enjoy about the fat acceptance/celebration movement is that I often cannot tell and can find no way to ascertain when someone is trolling them and when they are making what they feel is a valid point. Poe’s Law, I know….
I think this is not a troll as she makes other similar tweets and she is the size of a house (if that is her actual identity and photo).
But I truly cannot definitively tell. I’d say 70% chance not an Olog-hai and 30% chance troll. But god, I just don’t know.
One of the contradictions of modernity is that as empirical knowledge is solidified, social knowledge is de-codified and made yet another tradable commodity with all the newly-possible attendant representational distortions for purposes of signalling and tribal affiliation — all inherent to the relatively-novel ability for the previously-reliable signifiers to be obfuscated or self-generated.

Why when some nutball Christian attacks a Planned Parenthood clinic does my side of the debate insist on identifying him (accurately) with his Christian dominionist fucked-up faction, but the same people will go off their rockers vituperating on why Islam has nothing at all in any way to do with why, say, it was Islamists who committed the attacks in Paris and not for instance Hindu believers?
Captain, I think I’ve detected a major inconsistency in belief shield harmonics.
