STUDY: Your Fitbit Reinforces "Weight Stigma, Fatphobia, and Bullying"
Show of hands, who has a Fitbit? Generally you wear them to keep yourself honest. For some people it's part of their fitness routine. Or you may just like bragging about how many steps you hit on a given day. Either way, it's all about personal responsibility. Wanting to stay fit. Charting your progress. And apparently, reinforcing weight stigma, fatphobia, and bullying.
Fatties and other tubbos are the leftist victim class du joir (see OPINION: Big Fat Shame—Obesity and the New Liberal ‘Victim’ Class and New Study: ‘Fat But Fit’ is a Gross Exaggeration, Stop Believing It…). And now they have a study to back up their fat feelings.
This is a bad thing apparently. https://t.co/dEdVdeC4Yb— New Real Peer Review (@New Real Peer Review) 1512358374.0
A study most likely funded by Ben & Jerry's. After all, it's hard to track your steps when you're double fisting pints of Phish Food.
And what kind of a leftist study would it be without an attack on capitalism?
The horror. https://t.co/p9X2VaibP6— New Real Peer Review (@New Real Peer Review) 1512358551.0
This will help us understand the findings. https://t.co/w5sy51sWCR— New Real Peer Review (@New Real Peer Review) 1512358750.0
Let's sum up some of what we've learned here.
Lesson #2: Numbers are bad. Health trackers need to focus on feelings instead. https://t.co/ElXLHZ1JCw— New Real Peer Review (@New Real Peer Review) 1512359145.0
So shout it loud! You're fat and you're proud. And most likely out of breath after reading this. It required you sitting up in a chair. For more than five minutes.
It's amazing what people think is deserving of a study (see YOUR TAX DOLLARS: Government Wasted Hundreds of Thousands on 'Why LGBT People Drink...'). Most people buy a Fitbit and use it until the band breaks. Never could they have imagined they were pawns in Big Exercise's conspiracy to make fat bastards feel bad about themselves.
