This x1000. For all the mischaracterizations FPH gets, the vast bulk of it is directed at the HAES activists and people who're in mind-boggling levels of denial in some other fashion.

I really think FPH would die off from disinterest in a week if fat people demographics on the internet were primarily composed of those with bad-luck medical conditions or the Gabriel Iglesias style "I'm fat because I love cake and tacos and am willing to deal with all the negative consequences of it", instead of the FA, HAES, and claims of wanting to lose weight while eating 10,000 calories a day.

People who legitimately want to lose weight and transition to a healthy lifestyle? I love to help them. Tips, working out together, commitment devices, whatever works.

Yeah, I mean I don't disagree with them that stuff like the fat acceptance movement is kind of a dangerous and silly idea, I just can't embrace the vitriol. Some of them come across as perfectly reasonable people though.

Yes. I'm subbed to both. Don't have much to say in either though.

Yeah, generally speaking I agree with you. "Change only comes when the pain of staying the same exceeds the pain of change" and all that.

I came here for fatpeoplehate because I think it's a funny sub and it was bullshit that reddit banned it. Turns out I don't hate fat people quite enough for them. Now I run /v/bodyweightfitness. So oddly perfect question for me.

Interesting, thanks for your story and a sub I wasn't aware of.

Yeah dude, spread the word. I'm really trying to make it great, better than the reddit version even. I don't hate on fat people in the sub or anything like that, fat people who are sincerely trying to improve get no hate from me.

I used to occasionally rant on FPH, but I wouldn't consider myself FPHer because they are too cicrlejerky for my liking. Anyway back on reddit I used to frequent r/fitness nowadays I don't beacuse it's full of idiots that have couple weeks of experience on SL/SS and sudenly became fitness experts. Voats fitness is kinda dead, so I just hang around other not so serious lifting forums and joke around, but if any one needs help I'm more than willing to help or point them in the right direction
