University Launches ‘Fat Studies’ Program to Normalize Obesity

The University of New Mexico wants to normalize obesity.

Campus Reform was the first to report on the university’s “fat studies” program. The goal is to combat anti-fatness.

“This course will consider the structural forces that construct fatness as problematic—as diseased, gross, dirty, lazy, gluttonous, and other negative characteristics—thereby reinforcing antifatness,” the course syllabus states.

Students will also learn how to create a plus-sized outfit. I’m no fashionista – but I suspect that means lots of 5-X t-shirts and dresses made out of king-sized bed sheets.

Students will study how antifatness intersects with oppression – along with colonialism and capitalism. And apparently, fitting into a regular-sized airplane seat is a form of oppression.

“If you yourself live in a fat body, try to think about not only how accessible the space is for you, but how accessible it may be for a fat person that is larger than you, a fat person that has less mobility than you do,” the syllabus says.

Professors will also teach students about the fat liberationist movement. Something tells me Jenny Craig would be considered an enemy of that particular movement.

It seems to me the first step in fat liberation is to loosen your belt and stop eating a bucket of Ho-Ho’s.

All that to say – don’t be surprised if there’s an uptick in clogged arteries, diabetes and heart attacks in New Mexico.
