Is it really a “shame” ?

Society on a daily basis talks smack about different ethnic minority groups, the Autism community and skinny people yet it never gets labeled as “race shaming” “disability shaming” or “skinny shaming” the world just looks the other way and ignores it. All of a sudden since bigger people get picked on and their story makes its way to social media outlets it earns the title “fat shaming” and everyone becomes outraged.



Now one can feel free to disagree with me here and that’s totally fine but the last time I checked someone’s weight is something that can be controlled. Being a bigger person myself I stopped the path I was on and seen results simply by way of portion control, making better food choices and exercising. 



Shouldn’t everyone be more angered by people making rude comments about something a person truly has no control over? You can’t choose your ethnic background or if you are going to have a disability but you can choose to make better food choices to lead a better life.

Thank you for reading!

    My feelings seem to go from nothing to “can’t stand this situation”. Anyone else having these problems? How do you handle it?
    I feel like a 5-year old when situations aren’t optimal for me, for the way I just want to scream out in frustration and slam the door. The intensity of my emotions make it hard to stick with the task ahead. I don’t scream and slam doors though, instead I bury the frustration deep inside and in order to do that I have to go numb. I feel depressed a lot too. Not sure what to do with all of that. I feel like it has only gotten worse the older I get. I got my ASD diagnos at age 30 and I guess I have been trying to act like a neurotypical my whole life, up until now (still 30 years old). Now I kind of feel like “why can’t people adapt to my ways instead of me all of the time having to adapt to theirs?”
