FA Dissociation

By | July 10, 2019

Something odd I’ve noticed about the Fat Acceptance movement is that most of them talk about their bodies as completely separate from the rest of their being. They always say odd things like, “It feels good to my body” or “This body is strong” and similar phrasings. It’s like they don’t even associate their bodies with themselves.

I wonder if that is not part of the problem, this dissociation? It’s just a very bizarre way of speaking that I noticed. I don’t have any firm conclusions about it but it seems like a clue to something.
