Philadelphia is hosting FatCon, the first conference to celebrate overweight people

Philadelphia is known for its cheesesteaks, hoagies, roast pork sandwiches, scrapple, pizza, water ice, soft pretzels, or any culinary treat sold at one of the city’s zillion Italian bakeries. No one needed a conference to know there are many fat people here. It is something anyone could realize by taking a stroll around the city. I say this as a resident of the area and someone who has struggled with weight.

The organizers aimed for the conference to be a “judgment-free event focused on creating a community for fat people by fat people, recognizing those who are ‘often overlooked because of their size’” and an opportunity to “navigate this fatphobic world and society in a different way.” The conference will supposedly feature panels discussing fashion, navigating fatphobia, social media influencing, and a keynote speaker known as “The Fat Sex Therapist.”

Because, obviously, fat people need to learn more about social media influencing than about health, exercise, and losing weight. This thing sounds like an indulgent disaster of rotund proportions.

"People just want to be able to be themselves — that's the dire need for something like Philly FatCon," one of the organizers said.

For some reason I doubt that the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon Series organizing company or Iron Man Triathlons will have a booth in their exhibit hall.
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, , , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

  • That is the problem with everything. They try and make it better without realizing the old is fine.

I suppose there are worse things they could be doing.

Has Christie contacted them about being a speaker?
