Slight Issue with the Mission Statement of this Community

I'm fat. And, while I agree that really all of the anti-fat body image propaganda is not only sad and stupid, but harmful, I'd say that this group's claim of "health at any size" was a little too focused on fighting the good fight, and thus neglectful of the truth of the matter. I'm fat to an unhealthy level, and I know this, and that fat can hurt health...

But, in general, I'm quite impressed with the take that this community is taking. Screw assigned body image feel bad propaganda.

(And, be as healthful as you can/are willing to be. I won't give you hell about it, but not dying young is a plus too.)
