This is what happens when you search Facebook for “Fat Acceptance”. Go ahead, try it for yourself. Facebook has taken it upon itself to literally erase Fat Acceptance in favor of promoting fat shaming and fat stigmatization. When someone wants to find about Fat Acceptance, Facebook has opted to stand in their way and hand out a weight loss pamphlet instead.
Lest you think its because they are just loading content from Wikipedia, when you search “fat acceptance” on Wikipedia, it redirects you to their page for “Fat Acceptance movement”. Someone had to make a choice to silence Fat Acceptance on Facebook. This is what disenfranchisement looks like. This is what marginalization looks like.
Remember this the next time someone is bothered about how fat activists are silencing dieting. And write a letter to Facebook and demand that they stop disenfranchising fat acceptance in this utterly indefensible manner. My considerable thanks to Miss Mary Max and @Sullenmel for letting me know about this total and utter bullshit.
signal boosting for all my fat acceptance peeps. we got some complainin to do!!
Also when you redirect to ‘fat acceptance’ it is the same page as dieting with a different title:
bolded for OH MY GOD ARE YOU FUCKING SHITTING ME?
Oh. My. WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK.
NO I DID NOT MEAN DIETING. That is actually really fucking awful
