Body positivity is an easy target on the left. And that’s not just because they’re so fat they are quite impossible to miss. Easy target in the rhetorical sense. What we’re talking about here is more along the lines of attitude. You know, like when someone is fat and/or lazy and they feel bad about it, so they lash out at you. It’s your fault for being skinny. Or for playing the tuba behind them when they walk. Anti-fat bias!
Seriously, these body-themed outrages get more and more ridiculous (see Colorado College Encourages Good Health. Students Protest ‘BODY SHAMING and NEW IN BODY POSITIVITY: A Record Breaking Bearded Woman?!). Which is probably why American Dad took body positivity to its natural conclusion.
Generally, we use these videos to make a broader point. This one is just funny. Maybe a little mean. But that just makes it funnier.
By the way, can we get a welfare check on Tess Holiday? It’s been a while since I’ve heard her stomping about. Inquiring minds want to know how the “fat but fit” lifestyle has been treating her.
