One Vision

Fat people have no place in 'obesity' except as mute objects. The theory of our dismissal is that we are the voice that is our (definition as) intrinsic pathology.There is no separation between us as people and the pathology that is us.

This ends up closely referencing madness and/or neurosis. When that takes over a person's mind, it can begin to speak through them,becoming their voice. At least with madness, there's some recognition that this is a process, not a starting place.

We have become like someone dispossessed by an invader. In that case, it is obesity and fat haters that have invaded and are giving us lines in place of our thoughts and voices.

Mostly say 'obesity' hype is unnecessary, inaccurate and bad policy regardless of the actual "risks" or otherwise of being a fat person.

Any dispensing of that hype is seen as "denialist."Of what though? This is our bodies, our lives, our experience, the denial is of our sentience by those who wish to repress that and keep us all with one vision, theirs.

One of the things I've only really noted latterly, is the extent to which fat people do not appear in fat science. The study of 'obesity' is the study of the abstraction of fat people as pathology, rather than the conclusions written by the study of actual people. If everyone's so confident they know fat, why don't they show that?
Some studies suggest that the connection between body mass index and premature death follows a U-shaped curve. This would mean that weighing too much—or too little—isn't as healthy as some middle weight. The main problem with this idea is that most of these studies included smokers and individuals with early but as-yet undetected chronic and fatal diseases.

But that is exactly what is done for fat people! No matter what health challenges a fat person may face, they're deemed related to 'obesity'. This is rightly seen as a distortion of the 'risks' associated with thinness. Many fat people agree with this, they have a consistent line across the spectrum;
Potentially deadly chronic diseases such as cancer, emphysema, kidney failure, and heart failure can cause weight loss even before they cause symptoms and have been diagnosed. So low weights don’t necessarily cause early death. Instead, low weight is often the result of illnesses or habits that may be fatal.
 [my emphasis]

Exactly. But its "extreme" if you say the same thing about the other side of that U.

It reports that slimmer people are more likely to smoke, this does seem to be the case. In abstract that adjustment may have merit. However people aren't abstract and in real life, slimmer people are more likely to smoke which impacts on their mortality. Weight prognosis on paper, cannot form the basis of what's going on off paper, in real life.

Note too the laughable, query about as undetected chronic and fatal diseases. Are they kidding, how could you possibly separate that in fat people, when the whole point of 'obesity' is it is a palpable/immediate threat to life.
Meanwhile,the prevention and control of obesity has become a major public health priority for chronic disease prevention.
How does this differ from the chronic pre-diagnosis conditions of thin people?

There is one vision about how to see weight, its already there, its just for some reason, 'obesity' adherents wish to heavier weight into something it it's not.
