Bikini Bottom just got real..

thetemperature asked:

Is it fatphobic to believe that the body represents the mind?


It is fatphobic to attach moral or ethical value to size, which it sounds like you’re probably doing if you feel the need to ask us this. It is healthist to attach moral or ethical value to ability or disability, to “physical fitness” or lack thereof, to “health” in any way you define it. It is bigoted and wrong to think that any particular physical characteristic demonstrates some particular mental or emotional attribute. It will always be factually incorrect, because there will always be many many people who have the physical characteristic but not the mental/emotional one and vice versa. If you want a good example of the absurdity of thinking that physical characteristics indicate mental ones, go read up on phrenology.
