In my post about Fat Acceptance the other day, I mentioned how they seemed to discuss their bodies as if they were completely disconnected from themselves. Here’s some evidence:


I don’t even disagree with the basic message but I do find it fascinating how they tend to discuss their corporeal beings as if there is no connection at all between their actions in the world and the results of those actions. I know, part of it is that evasion of responsibility is the real American pastime and which is concomitant with the obvious truth that FA could’ve only developed and prospered in the US.

Is this some form of dysmorphia? I’m not a doctor but it strikes me as completely bizarre to discuss one’s body as utterly separate like this.
