Make It Stop: Obese model Tess Holliday again promoting unhealthy body size

Model Tess Holliday is 5’5” and weighs 280 pounds. For someone here age, a normal weight range should be 111 to 150 pounds. She is classified as OBESE CLASS III.  There is NOTHING healthy about being so obese.

According to the CDC, the health risks associated with obesity include:

  • All-causes of death (mortality)
  • High blood pressure
  • High LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, or high levels of triglycerides (Dyslipidemia)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis (a breakdown of cartilage and bone within a joint)
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Some cancers (endometrial, breast, colon, kidney, gallbladder, and liver)
  • Low quality of life
  • Mental illness such as clinical depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders
  • Body pain and difficulty with physical functioning

Tess is into “body positivity” and “female empowerment” because she is fat. Somehow obesity is suppose to give women confidence.

And anyone who dares call out the health risks of her being so fat is instantly labeled a “body shamer.”

A couple days ago she posted the above picture on Instagram with the caption, @lizzobeeating told me to caption this photo “Damn… that look good” #effyourbeautystandards

Sorry but NO. That DOES NOT LOOK GOOD.

Promoting an unhealthy body size is dangerous (see the first bullet in the list below). Disguising a serious health condition as “female empowerment” and dismissing real health standards is not logical.

Feminism today has nothing to do with facts, such as those provided with the evidence of the consequences of obesity. It’s all about feeeeeelings, emotions and justification for your actions – and the lack of personal responsibility. That’s the liberal way.

  1. She can claim “body positivity” until the cows come home, but that doesn’t change the facts that (1) she’s morbidly obese; (2) obesity is very, very bad for her health; and (3) because of obese people’s health problems, they add to the healthcare costs for EVERYONE.

     
  2. Its fatties like this who will wonder what happened when the country implodes.

     
  3. Reminds me of Violet Beauregard:

     
  4. Come on DCG!! Give a guy a little warning for Pete’s sake! I think I may have mentioned last “Tess” article that I could have gone the remainder of my life not seeing that……….

  5. Tess and Lena articles ruin my lunch. I realize beauty comes in many forms but, let’s face it, gross is to the bone!

     
  6. I cannot conceive how anyone would find her attractive, unless it were out of the depths of an equally desperate life of grotesque. My body shrunk to 5′-10″ and exploded to 285 lbs, which I found really fatalistic, so I acted to do something about it.

    By following Drs Eric Berg and Jason Fung’s advice on a ketosis diet food plan % an intermittent fasting one meal a day, I’ve lost 55 lbs the past year and will lose another 30 by Christmas. If she has enough self-respect, she will surely do the same, or die halfway through her God-given lifespan.

     
  7. GAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaa.
    my eyes!?!?!
    and her cellphone cover looks like a pack of cigs.
    Fat AND smoking. She’ll be freeing up some breathing air before too long.

     
  8. Tess Hollyfat fell off the wall, Tess Hollyfat made a big splash,
    by golly I swear, I’ve never seen such blast
    on a woman’s ass-phault.
    I pity this woman, really, it is disgusting to see a young woman not able to enjoy life at best, she has a pretty face and beautiful dark hair, I’m sure she faces many challenges among being laughed at and being disable in many ways.

     
  9. Believe it or not, I’ve seen women MORE obese than Holliday. All in all, this DOES NOT bode well.
    I hope a good doctor can get ahold of her while there’s still time.

    I DO agree with Holliday—UP TO A POINT: If an obese person is going to confront their problem, he or she has to do it for himself FIRST & FOREMOST. But I very much fear Ms. Holliday’s days may be numbered.
    I’ll leave with this in her defense: At least she’s not a full-bore leftist SJW.

     
  10. This womyn just sets herself up for ridicule:

    “Holding in a fart, but make it fashunnnn”

  11. First of all, the Bible is the authority for all things, and it says she is supposed to be dressed modestly (covered from neck to ankles.) Secondly, you people on here shouldn’t be using the CDC for your proof of what is good or bad……………I suggest googling “CDC is lying……” and start reading about all the things they lie about. The Bible, as the authority for all things, does not have anything against “fat” people………..we are just not supposed to be “gluttons” (and I personally know many skinny “gluttons”.)

     
    • First of all…we all know who is the authority for all things.

      Secondly, us people “on here” are free to use the many available sources of gathered research and data as our proof of what is good or bad.

      I suggest googling “body positivity” and start reading about all the things they lie about.

       
    • Why so defensive-offensive, Robin? Every time FOTM does a post on obesity, like clockwork we get comments like yours, throwing stones at the author, because these posts make some fat/obese readers uncomfortable. After WordPress burned down FOTM, a female reader had the gall to tell us that when FOTM is restored on another server, we must refrain from doing any more posts on obesity. For that reason, I seldom do obesity posts any more, although my posts — like this one by DCG — simply report the facts.

      You must have a very strange definition for “glutton”. Just how does a person become MORBIDLY OBESE (like Tess Holliday) without being gluttonous? Gluttony is over-eating, which means consuming more calories than one expends, which is how we get fat. Do you actually imagine obese people get that way from breathing air?

      You demonize the CDC because you want to deny the negative health effects of obesity, while ignoring mountains of scientific studies and data — including life insurance data on the shortened life spans of the fat and obese — on excess body weight being very bad for our health. Ignore the evidence at your own peril. I just hope there are no small children or other family members who depend on you for their survival and well-being.

    You guys haven’t seen anything with Tess… There’s so many obese models coming out of the woodwork! This week I got so many nasty messages from overweight people on instagram. After I saw a celebrity post an image of a super morbidly obese woman who must be well over 400lbs, I said I didn’t think obesity should be glamorised and that it was equally as bad as a shockingly thin anorexic image. To me it’s as bad if not worse than promoting size 0. It was an angry fat mob telling me you can’t tell the girl is unhealthy from the picture! It was beyond frustrating. Of course you can!
    Please see the image in the link below… we’ve come along way from only seeing models deemed too thin but this? This is not the way forward!

    • Couldn’t agree more. Why lower our standards? Why glorify illness? I think its just another avenue to attack Western Culture.
