When I was fat, the only people to fat shame me were some members of my family. At the time I accepted it as simply their misguided concerns for my health. Now that I am thin (thinner then almost all of them now), they actually thin shame me. I also find a lot of thin shaming in society in general. I get called "health nut" or "extreme" rather often. Has anyone else experienced this? Has society become so unhealthy that to strive for health is becoming taboo?

Check out the article I posted called bigorexia. There is a complex in society for men to want to be huge as of recent years. Body shaming sucks either way. Often its due to people being insecure about themselves.

I think it's jealousy. Plus you're reminding other people of that plans they had to get more fit, eat healthier etc. but never followed through.

I experienced some kind of that but I have to say that IMO it's by far not as bad as the fat shaming and IMO there is a lot more of fat shaming (I won't even mention discrimination) going on in the world than thin shaming.

You could also say there is "vegan shaming" going on because I was called extreme and a health nut because of the way I eat quite a lot regardless of weight.

There is a growing problem (usually seen on places like Tumblr) of thin shaming and fat acceptance.

This is not just accepting people for who they are, this fat acceptance movement says that basically, if you're thin, then you're privileged along with claiming that being obese isn't unhealthy for you.

Crazy world with stupid people in it today.

It's something that gets me very angry. To the "fat acceptance" movement, anyone who is naturally slim OR has worked for their body (be it muscular, slim or so on) is oppressing them and is unfairly privileged over them. Just look up "fat acceptance" or "thin privilege"

To them, being obese is healthy and they think the world should accept that. The amount of amazing, over the top lies they tell themselves is insane. They will sometimes put pictures of themselves, usually obese but doing basic yoga moves.. Congratulations, just because you can get into a yoga pose doesn't mean that your body isn't swimming in fat.

I've seen and experienced the harm the consumption of meat, especially fowl, can do to the brain. Histamine and tryptophan in high amounts without exercise keep the brain in a state of delusion pleasure without ever maturing.

Is it still their fault if they aren't self-aware of their own behavior?

In severe cases involving psychosis, the dominant symptom is usually delusional thinking rather than hallucinations.

Even in milder cases, delusion can still play a key role – the affected individual experiencing a surreal world of grandiosity and delusion without a clue that what they are experiencing has little bearing on the reality of a situation. The tendency is more often seen by observers rather than by the individual themselves. Histadelics tend to speak very little & may sit motionless for extended periods. They may appear outwardly calm, but suffer from extreme internal anxiety.
