Regarding NAAFA, Feederism and the New American Fat Acceptance Movement.
Some time ago a reporter from CNN interviewed Bigger Fatter Blog's Proud FA and part of that interview is on Wikipedia. We will be updating this article when more information becomes available.
Has anyone heard these terms used before? It seems like terms some guy just made up for this article or something.188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:38, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
- I have heard of the term of "Maintainer" before, specifically on | Growing Guysand | Beefyfrat, but I have yet to have heard "Appreciator" Before.--Fumitol (talk) 01:29, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
WAY TO GO PROUD FA! OINK!
Wikipedia also makes reference to Fat Bastard http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fat_fetishism#Relation_to_fat_acceptance_movement
Relation to fat acceptance movementSome people involved in the fat acceptance movement argue that fat fetishism undermines social movements towards fat acceptance, through counter-productive objectification and dehumanization of fat people. They argue that often, fat fetishists (specifically feeders) derive sexual pleasure from increasing immobility, disability, or helplessness in the fat person through weight gain. Some people take issue with the coercion which is sometimes involved in fat fetishism.
NAAFA draws a distinction between fat fetishism and fat admiration: NAAFA states that "a preference for a fat partner is as valid as any other preference based on physical characteristics", but also condemns feederism as coercive. NAAFA advocating that people "celebrate the current weight of their partner as one aspect of the whole person".
Others in the Fat Acceptance Movement such as Mike (Fat Bastard) Gerard of NAFAM (New American Fat Acceptance Movement) take a neutral position on feederism and see no difference between fat admiration and fat fetishism.
NAAFA's condemnation of feederism was weak at best as NAAFA had/has a long standing relationship and productive history with Conrad Blickenstorfer's and his Dimensions Magazine, the internet's leading gaining and feederism site. Blickenstorfer (the Godfather of Feedersim) remianed on NAAFA's board of directors long after NAAFA's anemic condemnation of feederism.
I, Fat Bastard and Proud FA took a lot of heat from the fatosphere for exposing NAAFA's hypocrisy and duplicity. I guess some people just can't handle the truth or admit that their stewardship of the fat acceptance movement is what destroyed it.
The following are some exchanges that occurred between Proud FA, Pig and I and some angry NAAFA girls.
