Fat Hate Bingo 1: Revisited
So, I know my original Fat Hate Bingo has shown up on Tumblr, but I hope that doesn’t preclude me from posting this SPECIAL EDITION version where I’ve gone all George Lucas on the original by very slightly changing it. Seriously, I just improved the formatting and making one square more concise.
Why would I do such a thing? Well, because I was doing a special “best of” Fat Hate Bingo for the the 2012 Fat!So? Dayplanner, that’s why. I specially curated my favorite bingo squares from 3 Fat Hate Bingo editions for the Dayplanner which is chock full of awesome fat positive content so by all means pick up your copy today.
If you just thought for yourself, “Wait, there were only 2 Fat Hate Bingos!”, you have surprisingly good recall about a 4 year old activism bingo card. You are also correct. There WERE only 2. Watch soon for Fat Hate Bingo 2: Revisited and an all new Fat Hate Bingo 3. Because sadly, fat stigmatization provides and endless well of inspiration.

Header Text: “red3.blogspot.com presents Fat Hate BINGO 1. Now the cliché repetition of anti-fat arguments is a fun game you can play at home. Get five fat-hate talking points in a row and you’ve got BINGO!” Below is a 5x5 Bingo Card with squares in alternating red and gray colors with text in each square.
Column 1: It’s an epidemic! | Won’t someone please think of the children? | You must be delusional if you think its okay to be fat. | You’re just too fat to get laid. | I know you really hate being fat.
Column 2: Carrying around X lbs of fat is like wearing a backpack loaded with X lbs. | Fat people are a burden on our health care system. | Why do you assume that I am thin? | I’m just trying to help. | You must be a lesbian because you are so fat.
Column 3: You just want an excuse to be fat. | The law of thermodynamics says you’re a liar. | FAT FREE | But I don’t wanna be fat! | You don’t want to hear the truth.
Column 4: I did it! So can you! | But you’re going to die! | Fat acceptance is just like Big Tobacco. | Fat people have it far too easy in our society. | But we have to do something!
Column 5: You’re endangering the rights of dieters! | Inside every fat person is a thin person trying to get out. | I’m concerned that you are being too extreme. | I want to lose weight and you’re being very discouraging by being fat accepting. | Just eat less and exercise more.]
