Ragen, and other FA’s have this weird disassociation between their bodies and themselves. I once saw a comment on a blog that said something to the effect that once the person learned to disassociate her body size with her self esteem, she was finally happy. So, let’s get this straight. This is a person that is unhappy with her body. Rather than choose to work on that, she would rather look at her body as a separate entity, with a mind of it’s own. And she can only be happy when she absolves herself of responsibility for her decisions? Because she didn’t make them – her body did?
That means, from a legal standpoint, I am not responsible for something that ‘my body’ does. Right? So when ‘my body’ punches my ex in the fucking face for the years of physical/psychological abuse he put me through, I can’t be charged with assault. I didn’t do it. My body did.
Let’s take this a step further. Let’s say that one day, ‘my body’ decided to rape a 7 year old. I am not responsible. My body did it. I was just listening to my body. And that absolves me of any responsibility.
Wrap your head around that logic.
This is, quite possibly, some of the stupidest shit that has come out of the FA blogosphere. Your ‘body’ does not make decisions – you do. And if they were as ‘proud’ of their curves as they say? They would own their behavior, not blame it on ‘their body’ and absolve themselves of all responsibility.
I should have a good, strong sentence to wrap this up. But I am having a hard time reconciling this stupidity in my head.
