25 Things

25 Things Fat People Shouldn’t Do is an unabashed middle finger to the preposterous idea that any human who weighs more than the status quo does not deserve to live a full and well-rounded (ahem) life. The list of 25 is composed word for word from direct lists of sheer assholery found on the internet. These range from the absurd to the profoundly shameful, and I will be disproving this offensive notion with style. Feel free to join in on the fun, and if you do, link at the bottom so I can share. May the Chub Club live long and prosper!”

Jes, The Militant Baker, started the 25 Things campaign in 2012; you can read the rant that inspired it here. As usual with these things, I’m late to the game, but better late than never, eh? Besides, I think I bring my own sense of panache to the idea. Heh.

So, over the next several weeks I’ll be adding my contributions and proving that this fat woman knows how to live — and to hell with the naysayers!

(aka, the things fat people shouldn’t do)

Do a cannonball

Swing at the park

Wear a bikini


Wear animal print

Eat in public

Wear shirts with glitter

Ride a scooter

Make art of themselves


Jump in an elevator

Be straight

Wear an ironic t-shirt

Go to the movies

Roll down a hill

Walk through a doorway


Go to bars

Fly in an airplane

Sit on anything plastic


Wear a muumuu

Sit at a booth

Ride a bike
