Women's Magazines Are Now All-In on Promoting Morbid Obesity to Their Already-Overweight Readers

A woman's fitness magazine -- let me stress, a women's fitness magazine -- was forced by the Fat Advocacy lunatics to apologize for a tweet that said that biking and walking were a good way "to burn off Christmas calories."

See, you're never supposed to suggest that exercising is healthy, or even hint at the fact that obesity is less than healthy.

Men can be told to drop the pounds.

But not Strong, Empowered Women.

A women's health magazine has apologised after it posted a tweet encouraging readers to "burn off those Christmas calories".

On Sunday, Women's Fitness Magazine tweeted: "Are you getting out for a run, walk or cycle today? It's a great day to burn off those Christmas calories... post your pics here!"



However, the attempt at calling on people to share their exercise routines backfired, and people quickly started criticising the publication for its tweet.

"I find it really sad that in 2020 you’re promoting the need to 'burn off' Christmas calories," tweeted one person.

"I think that's a very triggering and outdated message to be sharing. You're encouraging women to work out from a place of guilt/shame which I think is very negative and dangerous."

A consultant psychiatrist added: "Hugely concerning and problematic language. We shouldn't be ascribing moral labels to food and exercise or encouraging people to adopt an earn and burn mentality; it's the fall out from these damaging marketing campaigns that I see only too well in clinic."

All they said was that biking, walking, and running -- all undeniably good for you -- would burn off excess calories eaten over a period of feasting.

That's it.

It wasn't "shaming." It was encouragement -- which is presumably why women by a women's fitness magazine.

But the obese people felt bad about having to see a women's fitness magazine promoting fitness, so they attacked it until it apologized.

...

"Sorry to anyone upset by our recent post about getting out and burning off Xmas calories," it tweeted.


"We were trying to encourage you to exercise, share your pics and to not to wait until January if you have fitness or weight-loss goals. We know that not everyone exercises for weight loss."

Meanwhile, Cosmopolitan is now dropping a series of "Healthy at any size" covers, promoting the Obese Lifestyle Choice.



They published a second "This is healthy!" cover, on the right, below.

Why isn't Cosmopolitan being censored by Twitter and FaceBook for promoting "misinformation" about obesity's safety, especially given the covid pandemic which is known to kill young people who are obese?

Obesity is called "comorbidity" for a reason.

And apparently "misinformation" doesn't exist if you're part of the leftist political coalition. If you're an SJW pressure group, you can "misinform" to your heart's content.

Strong, Empowered Women

You keep using those words. I do not think they mean what you think they mean.
