Recall my insistence that True Leftists be fat-shamers:

Once more my gut feeling (pun intended) has proven valid:

The Forgotten History of the Jewish Man Who Started the Body Positivity Movement

Decades before #BodyPositivity became a hashtag, a radio presenter named Steve Post inspired the movement.
Born in the Bronx in 1944 (he passed away in 2014), he was an overweight Jewish kid with a complicated family background. By the time he hosted the Central Park event, he’d lost 40 pounds but not his sense of outrage at how he was discriminated against when at his heaviest. He told the Times, “People should be proud of being fat. We want to show we feel happy, not guilty.”

No, anyone who carries extra weight around should feel guilty of wasting energy.

Everyone who attended the event — at the bequest of Post — carried food. Most also held up banners reading “Fat Power” and wore buttons saying “Think Fat.” Though the “Fat-In” was peaceful, the throng of protestors burned diet books and, according to the Times, “a large photograph of Twiggy the teenage ectomorph.”

Twiggy was a Counterculture-era icon:

Twiggy was initially known for her thin build and the androgynous appearance considered to result from her big eyes, long eyelashes, and short hair.[1][2] She was named "The Face of 1966" by the Daily Express[3]
She was short for a model at 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m), weighed eight stone (51 kg; 110 lb)

Imagine how quickly the gene pool would improve if everyone fatter than this were prohibited from reproducing. (For the record, I myself am taller than her and weigh less than her. See also: )


Twiggy and the magazines featuring her image polarised critics from the start. Her boyishly thin image was, and still is, criticised promoting an "unhealthy" body ideal for women.[35][36] "Twiggy came along at a time when teen-age spending power was never greater," said Su Dalgleish, fashion correspondent for the Daily Mail. "With that underdeveloped, boyish figure, she is an idol to the 14- and 15-year-old kids. She makes virtue of all the terrible things of gawky, miserable adolescence."[37] At the height of her fame, Mark Cohen, president of Leeds Women's shop, had an even harsher view: "Her legs remind me of two painted worms."

Oh look, another anti-ectomorph Jew!

Back to first link:

Radical Therapy Collective, which critiqued how mental health was treated in the 1970s, was two West Coast Jewish NAAFA members, Sara Fishman and Judy Freespirit (born Judith Louise Berkowitz Ackerman). They attempted to bring a feminist spin to the group. “From the start, our small NAAFA chapter took a confrontational stance with regard to the health professions,” Fishman wrote in a 1988 article for Radiance Magazine. “We accused them — doctors, psychologists, and public health officials — of concealing and distorting the facts about fat that were contained in their own professional research journals. In doing so, they betrayed us and played into the hands of the multibillion-dollar weight-loss industry, which exploits fear of fat and contempt toward fat people as a means to make more money.”

More Jews! I share their dislike towards the weight-loss industry, but for a different reason. From an Aryanist perspective, the weight-loss industry helps heritable non-ectomorphs people successfully pretend to be heritable ectomorphs, thus works against Aryanization.

Back to the first link:

“It is no accident that Hollywood, purveyor to the world (via cinema) of the thesis that only the slender deserve respect, also produced its first radical antithesis: the Fat Underground,” Fishman said. “The Fat Underground employed slashing rhetoric: Doctors are the enemy. Weight loss is genocide. Friends in the mainstream, sympathetic academics and others in the early fat rights movement urged them to tone it down, but ultimately came to adopt much of the Fat Underground’s underlying logic as their own.”

Only the slender deserve respect.

It’s not a total coincidence that the founding fathers (and mothers) of the body positivity movement were Jewish.

I know.

A journalist for the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, David Margolis noted in 2001, that among other things: “A lot of people also consider fat a Jewish issue.” He asserted that Jewish people tended to treat food like others did drugs or alcohol. Professor Sander L. Gilman, in Fat as Disability: The Case of the Jews, explains Judaism may place “relatively little focus on the representation of the fat body,” yet that hasn’t prevented the Jewish body — both the personal and community — being collectively judged within the spectrum of Western gluttony.

Hence Jews depicted like this:

From a burning effigy of Twiggy to now — when brands using non-standard sized models is gaining traction — arguably the body positivity movement has undergone as much a makeover as the Western beauty standard itself. There’s less rage now and more celebration of the human body in all its diversity, but the important work by the original Jewish activists deserves recognition for creating an ongoing and dynamic conversation about sizeism, the diet industry, and the power they play in our everyday lives.

We will not let it easily be forgotten. Jews were not contributors to the Counterculture, but defilers of the Counterculture.
