Somewhat related.

Sporkatus

Thank goodness, a fattie feminist dance thread to replace the Google panties one.
-A phrase never before uttered.

Alice

What a time to be alive.

Sam

Yes, fat feminist dance therapy is a thing that exists.

Just don't call it exercise.

David

What a time to be alive.

And annual tuition at Princeton is only $67,000.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

..."intersectional dimensions of the fat body” will be thoroughly explored.

Yes, but only if they have a tape measure long enough.

Quickly dons Groucho mask to elude Sgt Allen of the Sussex Constabulary...

Lab Rat

I do like the juxtaposition of the post about this fat feminist dance class with the fretting about the lack of women in STEM that the links in the previous post overflowed with.

Oh dear - I believe I left a participle dangling. How frightfully gauche.

It’s almost as if I had a plan.

[ Sighs. ]

I wish I had a plan.

Will there be snacks?

Fat dancing feminists are a free body problem.

Rob

When do they get charged with fraud?

Pogonip

Anyone who tries to explore MY fat body without an invitation is going to get slapped.

Andy

Dear God, I sometimes truly wish that there could occur some terrible apocalyptic event,herds of brain eating zombies,a mass coronal ejection that kills all modern electrical devices, a terrible plague akin to the Black Death, anything that would allow us to press the reset button on the Human race and get rid of the useless fucking snowflakes and get back to having proper people who know and accept that life is hard and not fair,and if you want to survive and prosper you need to get off your arse and do some real work that has actual value.

jabrwok

Will there be snacks?

Yes, but you'll have to dig them out of the intersections yourself, and freshness is not guaranteed.

Lab Rat

Fat dancing feminists are a free body problem.

Haha - yes! But will the fat dancing feminists actually approach the problem in this way, with logic, mathematical equations, and the like?

Deborah

"there is little proof that obesity causes so much disease and death or that losing weight is what makes people healthier,”

Little proof.

I wonder why this all wasn't rolled out while Mooch was still First Lady. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the intersection of a Princeton alum and her national fat shaming agenda.

Sporkatus

But will the fat dancing feminists actually approach the problem in this way, with logic, mathematical equations, and the like?

Certainly not. There are too many variables involved to solve the problem, so they will be expressing it all in terms of relationships. No parameterizations will be found, because the variances over time don't depend on the external control of anything, must less any sort of patriarchal "t".

The intersectional dimensions are only to be explored and not determined, because how very dare you suggest any sort of actual measurement... It's insulting, that's what it is. Don't you know better than to ask a lady such things?

Sporkatus

Consistency is minded more than a little by foolish hobgoblins. How dare you constrain their feelings.

The latest in rhetoric, perhaps you've noticed, is if one expresses exasperation with millennials and/or snowflakes it is now THAT person who is a weak snowflake. Of course similar devices have been used by the left for decades as it's a variation on Alinsky tactics. The destruction of the meaning of words, even new ones as the origins of those are often in response to the destruction of meaning of older words, inevitably will regress society to more...shall we say...primitive forms of settling differences. It's as if they have no concept of the probabilities with which they are playing.

Sporkatus

Of course similar devices have been used by the left for decades

And by kindergarteners even longer than that. "I know you are but what am I".

Lab Rat

No parameterizations will be found, because the variances over time don't depend on the external control of anything, must less any sort of patriarchal "t".

Oh dear...I had forgotten that. All those differentials in the flow equations with their omnipresent "dt" - I always read it as "with respect to time" but in reality - I was being oppressed by the Patriarchy, and their phallic symbol "t"! Oh the horror!

The intersectional dimensions are only to be explored and not determined, because how very dare you suggest any sort of actual measurement... It's insulting, that's what it is. Don't you know better than to ask a lady such things?

Because I AM a lady...or at least a female human...and all this "intersectional" crap the feminists have latched onto makes my head hurt and my blood boil, and it never occurred to me that I shouldn't question their stupid paradigm.

On second thought, after what they did to that Google guy, I'm willing to bet my XX chromosomes won't protect me from the consequences of WrongThink(tm), so I had better keep such heresy to myself.

Spiny Norman

Andy,

...anything that would allow us to press the reset button on the Human race and get rid of the useless fucking snowflakes and get back to having proper people who know and accept that life is hard and not fair...

Ark-B?

lovegoats

Judith Hamera, you notice, is not fat. There was a point here, but I have missed it.

Lancastrian Oik

I wish I had a plan.

There isn't a plan?

*Shifts nervously on bar seat, eyes pickled eggs jar with even more suspicion and wonders whether the fire escape outside the painted-over window in the gents loo has been stolen for scrap, seeing as we're two floors up.*

jabrwok

the painted-over window in the gents loo

I have it on good authority that that window actually looks into the hence-lesbians locker room. I haven't mustered the courage (Dutch or otherwise) to try scratching off the paint to confirm or refute this rumor.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Very much related and mind boggling idiotic, an extensive guide to "microaggressions".

Specifically related:

Additionally, “seats” that are “too small for many people,” or even casting “models” for “school fashion shows” are similarly micro-aggressive.

Chairs that are too large are not addressed.

However, also specifically related:

“It is helpful in coping with daily microaggressions or bigger challenges to practice healing activities, such as yoga, meditation, fitness, healthy eating, and more,”

By cracky, that sounds an awful lot like fat-shaming, I wish these clowns would make up their minds.

Spiny Norman

I wish these clowns would make up their minds.

That would make it too easy for their targets (us).

Sporkatus

@Farnsworth: simple enough - they are promoting healthy eating *if* it "works for" someone as a "healing activity". Therefore, the purpose of eating healthily is to either virtue signal against Bad Eating Righties(after making sure of a safe audience) or to "heal", not to encourage weight loss - which would be wrong.

Since leftism comes with complementary ESP, you would be able to know their intentions are pure if they were to do so. Obviously.

Farnsworth M. Muldoon

Obviously.

I an just not woke.

I suppose it would be out of the question, cultural appropriation or something, to put these loons on a chain gang to get their minds right.

jabrwok

to put these loons on a chain gang to get their minds right.

Call it an ongoing performance piece against President Trump and they'd probably do it to themselves.

Darleen

a mass coronal ejection that kills all modern electrical devices

Could wish for The Waveries.

Sporkatus
Call it an ongoing performance piece against President Trump

In the latest annals of farce, there is a giant inflatable Trump chicken now on the green not far from the White House for lefties to coo (heh) over. A chicken based on some mad statue an enterprising person came up with in China, for whatever reason. Regardless, full court press - Trump is a chicken! - or something.

Trouble with this whole "resistance" farce, I'd say. No terribly coherent message here, just a (rather amusing looking) giant chicken. Surely this will be the thing which finally erodes his support, not a laugh and move on...

Farnsworth M. Muldoon

A chicken based on some mad statue an enterprising person came up with in China, for whatever reason.

Apparently to celebrate 2017, the Year of the Rooster, and also because they like Trump.

As far as "Teh Resistance" goes, as someone else put it, it is another lefty fail as all it does is advertise that America got its cock back.


Once again hides form Sgt Allen of the Sussex Constabulary...

Trilby

In addition, students will participate in a group performance examining the "relationship between fat and performative elements of public life,” which accounts for 20 percent of their final grade.

Perhaps I might suggest an appropriate musical accompaniment

Farnsworth M. Muldoon

Perhaps I might suggest an appropriate musical accompaniment

An alternative.

Wear gloves.

Well played Sir!

Pogonip

I like the giant chicken and think it should be made permanent. The littlest tourists could be told that's where the Easter eggs come from and that the chicken, in the best American fashion, is an independent contractor for the Easter Bunny.

champ

I wonder if Skylar Baker-Jordan will be lecturing...

PiperPaul

"herds of brain eating zombies"

I think they're been here already and left. That would explain a lot.

Mr. Saturn

It is funny that being fat not too long ago was a source of derision for the country on the left since it was seen as a conservative thing. Now they have their own branch of virtue signaling leftists willing to deny reality for them.

I'm going to assume that is not the same Princeton Einstein was at.

intersectional dimensions of the fat body

Your Matriarch is so rotund that her intersectional dimensions maintain several planetary satellites in heliocentric orbit.

WTP

Heh...and your matriarch is so rotund that xe wears a chronometric device on each upper body appendage, assuming said matriarch identifies as having a number of upper body appendages...excluding the one containing the cranial cavity...greater than one, to cover that number of geographic regions that each experience a significant deviation in their longitudinal relationship to the earth's perigee relative to its heliocentric mass.

Blame Nemo. He started it.

Charlie Suet

I like to hope that this sort of crap will eventually lead to the downfall of the identitarian drivel that's corroding Western Civilisation. Not totally sure there is a peak though.

Pogonip

Hi Mr. Saturn,

White fatties who live in trailer parks, former manufacturing towns, or former coal towns are still subjected to leftist derision.

Sporkatus

White fatties who live in trailer parks, former manufacturing towns, or former coal towns are still subjected to leftist derision.

The entire raison d'etre, outside pure oddity, of People of Wal-Mart.

Burnsie

"there is little proof that obesity causes so much disease and death or that losing weight is what makes people healthier”

Liberals sure reject science in a hurry when it contradicts their narrative. This is just nonsense on stilts.
