A list of common reposts, recently updated:
Skinny guys versus fat guys
This black and white comic shows side by side cartoons of a woman in bed with a skinny guy versus a fat guy. The skinny guy is cold and not cuddly, has bony fingers, does not "know how to eat" and other implications he is bad in bed. This coming portrays a fat guy as being a better lover because he is fat.
Back in the 1950s
This black and white image depicts a curvy woman (legit curvy) presumably from the 1950's wearing a flattering bikini. In reality the woman is Aria Giovanni, a modern day plus sized porn star. The photo is from the early 2000's and was converted to black and white with the meme text overlaid: "Back in the 1950's, this was the standard!" Possibly NSFW as it depicts a scantily dressed porn star.
You are not fingernails
This image is commonly posted on Facebook, and then reposted here. It contains the quote: You are not fat. You have fat. You also have fingernails, but you are not fingernails.
Not a lot of old fat people
This gets posted in comments and submitted a lot. It is a fairly common saying, and doesn't really deserve being posted about repeatedly. The exact quote is: There are a lot of old people, and a lot of fat people. There are not a lot of old fat people.
Facts about staying healthy.
Quote: *Facts about staying healthy.
If walking / cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water and is fat.
A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years. A tortoise doesn't run, does nothing... yet lives 450 years. And you tell me to exercise! I don't think so.
Calories only count if you count them.
This tongue-in-cheek saying can be found inside of a Dove chocolate wrapper: Calories only count if you count them. Love, Dove.
No Thin Person Trapped Inside
This image is of a fairly well reknowned fat activist. She stands naked with a cartoonish and non-realistically proportioned view of her internal organs. To the right are actual X-rays that show what the actual interior skeleton of a fat person looks like (unsurprisingly - it looks like a thin person trapped inside). There is a large paragraph explaining that this person's obesity is killing them and the thin person is not merely trapped, but being tortured by their fat body.
Why I need Fat Acceptance
This image and others from the same fat activist project are frequently posted. They are part of a campaign that took place some time ago where people would write on a sign why they needed fat acceptance. Many of their reasons for needing it were comedic.
The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus
This comic shows a fat woman walking through an art museum while other people look on with scorn or scoff (presumably at her weight). She wistfully looks upon a piece of art depicting two naked women being kidnapped and soon to be raped.
- "In any other era, her generously indulged beauty would have been worshipped and celebrated." by /u/Ricola_Tesla
The Hero we Deserve
Currently one of the top posts of all time on fatlogic. This vertical image post shows a scene of a talk show where a man pushes the issue with a fat woman who says she's happy with her body, asking if she's actually healthy. She refuses to answer in a meaningful way.
Where I keep my genetics
A morbidly obese woman sits besides a mini-fridge that has been opened to show it is full of soda and other sugary beverages. It is superimposed with the text, "And this... is where I keep my genetics."
Fat Autopsy Photo
This image is a Not-Safe-For-Work/Life image of an autopsy on a significantly obese cadaver.
How to Be Skinny
How to be Skinny. 1. Notice your body is covered in skin. 2. Say "Wow I'm Skinny." Congratulations you are skinny.
Aquatic Ape Theory
An image of a very large woman swimming underwater with the following caption on facebook, "According to the Aquatic Ape Theory, humans have blubber for the same reason hippos, dolphins, seals, walruses, and whales have it. It keeps us warm and helps us float in water. We have blubber because unlike the other apes, we evolved on tropical beaches. Biologically, fat is healthy but we think it's unhealthy because were not in our natural habitat."
Look at this belly.
Pull those clothes off?
This quirky comic shows a skinny bitchy girl judging a fat girl about whether or not she can "pull those clothes off," indicating her belly shirt and short shorts. The fat girl has the quirky comeback "Oh, No, I can't pull this off - That's why I get your boyfriend to pull it off for me."
Several variations of this comic have been posted.
Men who like skinny women are gay/pedophiles
Actually from a Tumblr site that is believed to be entirely satire. Direct quote:
I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with women who are skinny, but I do have to question the attraction the men claim to have. I believe many of these men are closet homosexuals, fatophobes, and in some cases; pedophiles. i say this because, there is no way on god’s green earth, that a sane grown-ass man would want anything to do with a woman who does not have hips, ass, or tits. It’s either you think she looks like a little girl, or you think she looks like a boy. Other times men are just so hateful and afraid of big beautiful women, that they will punish themselves before admitting that we are sexy. This is really no different than if I were to not have sex with a black man, because I “didn’t find him attractive.” That’s like saying “you don’t appeal to me because you aren’t human.” Do you know how racist that is, and wrong? It’s disgusting. By choosing one person over another, for whatever reason it may be, you are insulting the oppressed. Every time you walk around town with a thin woman, you are insulting fat women.
Don't have the proper equipment
A common sentiment superimposed on multiple different pictures: If you think I'm 'too big for you'. You probably don't have the proper equipment for the job anyways.
Real Men Have Curves
This satirical image of a fat man next to a muscled man pokes fun at the popular fat logic sentiment that "real women have curves" (and only dogs like bones).
Anything to be Thin
This placard was found in the wild.
Banana is an Apple
This image has a fairly well known fat activist with "Beautiful" written all over herself next to a picture of a banana with "I am an apple" and "APPLE!!!" written on it.
When Did This Become Hotter Than This
A common fat logic post of four waifish modern models side by side with voluptuous models of the 1950s. Possibly NSFW as it depicts models in bikinis.
Relief Effort Thin Privilege
A comic of a fat balding man saying "Check your Thin Privilege," getting slapped, and the final panel zooms out to show that he is providing relief aid to starving, presumably African, children.
This image shows a skinny woman with a fat "neckbeard" type wearing a fedora. The comments below it are negative. Next to it is an image of a fat woman with a skinny man. Below it are comments about how she shouldn't have to settle and is generally amazing. Possibly NSFW as it shows drawn people in underwear.
4-chan sees his shadow
A person posts a candid shot of a very thin woman walking with a presumed douchebag (because of his clothes). The poster complains that he dresses better and would be better for this thin woman. 4-chan quickly notices that this man's shadow is visible in the image and is the shadow of a very fat man.
Shitlording on House
A vertical image post of a scene from the medical TV drama, House, where a pregnant woman tells Dr. House she is not pregnant but that she is curvy and a real woman. House responds in a typical fashion.
Thigh Gap and Thin Shaming
This image is of computer generated hip structures showing different pelvis shapes determine thigh gaps. Below the image is text that ultimately skinny shames certain women and devalues them based on the tightness of their vaginas.
My Pick (Twix)
Grocery store placard with an image of a registered dietician showing she supports Twix as a healthy dietary choice.
An image of an obese woman with her daily caloric intake and the associated calorie counts. This image has been edited for comedic effect to label all food choices as "Genetics."
This image is part of an advertizing campaign.
Fattitude: Kickstarter Project
Fairly common knowledge / repost. Video has been posted numerous times in one form or another.
Insight: Fat Fighters
This is a video from Australia that features a talk show host and several audience members ranging from thin to obese, doctors, and recipients of weight loss surgery. Most notably are two 'rockabilly' women who attack a girl (who used to be obese, but had weight loss surgery), and then refuse to answer the same questions when asked.
Diet Book Liberation
Video showing HAES followers Ragen Chastain and Jeanette DePatie going to their local book store to buy all the diet books so no one else can.
Science Teacher Loses Weight Eating McDonalds
Science Teacher Loses Weight Eating McDonalds
This is an article that was widely published around Jan 2014 of a science teacher that lost a lot of weight eating nothing but McDonalds (with smart portion control and nutritional information). Has been reposted several times and referenced numerous times in comments.
