There are just a few thing to know:
- For an explanation of what this is about, read the box to the right.
- Patricia Washburn create the site and she’s awesome and will create a site for you!
- Through out the site you will see Donate buttons. This allows my haters to have the opportunity to help fund my work. All funds support the In Our Own Words – A Fat Activist History Project to create an oral history of the fat activism movement in the activists’ own words.
Without further ado, here’s the hate:
Maybe if you lost some weight and trained you could actually complete a marathon. [Comment in response to my blog post "My Big Fat Finished Marathon".]
Maybe you missed the title of the blog, the content of the blog, and the picture of the medal and me wearing the medal, but I got it done without your, oh let’s be generous and call it “advice.”
you are a fat slob. go eat more cake kunt
Usually I’m less upset that I got hatemail and more upset about the quality. I’d at least like to have some haters who take a little pride in their work. Oh well, I’m fairly certain I’m not the first person to whom this commenter has been a disappointment.
STOP EATING SO MUCH. START PLAYING TENNIS!
I admire the specificity here. Not just go exercise or whatever, but I should specifically play tennis. Tennis is the magical key to whatever the hell this person thinks I should accomplish. You heard it here first y’all, tennis is where it’s at!
This is literally the most inane and moronic thing I have ever read.
Right back at you.
I refuse to believe people like you are even real at all
There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home…
Delete all the comments you want, it just reflects the attitude you have towards your own body.
Pffft, logic. Who needs it? Obviously not this commenter.
Lighten up, Regan, you disgruntled BITCH. FUCK YOU.
In addition to my confusion about the capitalization strategy here, I’m feeling a bit of cognitive dissonance. Typically when I want someone to “lighten up” I don’t shout obscenities at them, but of course that’s just me – your mileage may vary.

Gender neutral bathrooms, fat acceptance, feminism, etc. You can’t stop that shit.
This Saturday we completed 26.2 miles in just over 7 1/2 hours.
I was exhausted. Like… Could-barely-walk-when-I-was-done exhausted.
There is NO. FUCKING. WAY. That manatee walked 26 miles. No way. I don’t believe it for a second.
You know what I think?
I think she made it up. I think she might’ve shown up, got her swag, and then left. She concocts these nonsense timelines to abet her story, shows up at the finish line, wraps herself in a blanket (looking fresh as a daisy, btw), collects her medal, and has something to post about.
It’s the desperation I love most about this. This person is absolutely clawing and heaving, desperate to defend and reinforce their prejudice and it seems mostly because they had a hard time completing a marathon, so the fact that I did it must be a lie, a conspiracy, anything but a challenge to their closely held stereotypes and superiority complex. At the end of the day I find these types of posts the most sad. (Though I appreciate them saying I looked fresh as a daisy at the finish line, since I felt like shit!) There’s a saying I think is pertinent here: “Some people will see you walk on water and say it’s because you can’t swim.”
An untrained couch potato will find a 7 hour marathon trivial. [from the same forum as the last comment I posted.]
I think you might want to fact check that. Especially considering that last commenter who said “I was exhausted. Like… Could-barely-walk-when-I-was-done exhausted.” after their 7.5 hour marathon.
If she finishes sub-8h I will personally gain 200 pounds in her honor. [Posted in reference to my next marathon, which has an 8 hour time limit]
Pics or it didn’t happen “Ragenomics”. PS: I’m totally flattered by your choice of username!
I was almost jealous when I saw that you could do the splits, then I realized that if I had 200 extra pounds on my core pressing down on me that I could do them to.
Yes, that’s precisely how doing the splits works. Just put on extra weight and your legs will be magically flexible. Here’s a 200 pound vest, give it a try. Go ahead, I’ll wait. What’s that? The ambulance…sure, I’ll stand here and wave them toward you.
A part of me sincerely hopes she dies doing that marathon.
Well aren’t you just the sweetest thing, thanks for using “sincerely” so that I really understand that you want me to die, I might not have believed it otherwise. Update: I finished the marathon, very much alive.
Perhaps you should consider that we shame people in society to correct (out of concern).
Perhaps you should consider that shame is not an appropriate way to show concern and that people in society don’t need you to correct them. For example, I would like to help you understand this using the correcting method of face punching (out of concern of course) but I don’t because I can grasp the basic concept of appropriate social interaction.
Just because you can do everything athletes can do does not make you an athlete.
In the words of comic Ron White: next time you have a thought, just let it go
Pretty sure you still think you’re just a little chubby but hot.
Pretty sure reading comprehension isn’t your thing. I’m not just a little chubby, I’m fat (hence the blog – danceswithfat) I am hot, but I would be that at any size.
ham beasts all of you ham beasts
I prefer bacon beast, but to each their own. Thanks for stopping by to share your wisdom with the class.
You’re hurting all the people who love you. I hate to be a blip on your parade.
First of all, you feel comfortable speaking for all the people who love me? Well then allow me to do the same (since I actually know them) and say: please fuck right the hell off. Also, I think that you either meant that you don’t want to rain on my parade or be a blip on my radar. Either way, don’t worry about it – I don’t care enough about you for you to be either of those things.

Pro-Tip: You are a Fat Hoe
That’s not a pro-tip, it’s not a tip at all. Let me give an example: Pro-tip: If you are attempting to garden over a large area, try to find a Fat Hoe, as a thin one will take much longer.
Enjoy your fat!
My assumption is that you will delete this comment the moment I post it
Well, I do hate to disappoint. Looks like even a broken watch is right twice a day. [clicks “trash”]
Please don’t delete my comment again, this is not hate mail I honestly want to help.
I don’t want your help, which you should have ascertained based on all the times that I’ve deleted your comment. Continuing to think that I need your help and trying to force it on me makes this hatemail. Pull it together and take it somewhere else dude.
Dehumaninizing fat people is the only way to help them. The problem with overweight people is that they are comfortable with themselves mentally.
Well, I do believe that my blog has been visited by the tragically misguided love child of Meme Roth and Dr. Phil.
I’m only posting it here because it highlights how fucked up you people are and how logical my approach is.
Your benevolence is just touching, but I’ll not be posting your ridiculous rant.
You swear too much in this post.
Can’t contain my rage. How does she sleep at night?
Because I can contain mine.
This is the kind of stuff that makes me embarrassed to be from U.S
I think I speak for all of us when I say, don’t be afraid to move on out.
cant we just kill the fat people and make cat food out of them? 99% of obese people are just stupid lazy ugly pieces of lard,fuck em
No, you can’t. But since you asked…I’m not a psychologist but maybe the fact that you can’t decide whether to kill us or fuck is indicates some deeper issues. Why cat food – you don’t think dogs would also enjoy delicious Fat People Chow? Also what about the 1% who, in your estimation, aren’t stupid lazy blah blah blah, are we just sacrificing them to the great cat food cause?
I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
Blah blah blah my dad was a Marine and I’ve heard versions of this speech since I was six (less the IP tracing of course.) If you are actually a Vet I want to thank you for your service, and I mean that sincerely.

I’ve never read something that has made me this mad before, I’m almost speechless because of it.
Damn, so close – sorry that I wasn’t able to take you all the way.
fat ppl are discusting ourside but whats going on in their evil minds are even worse
Hooked on phonics did not work for this person.
I would appreciate if this comment wasn’t deleted or modified.
I would appreciate a pony. I would say that we’re both going to have to learn to live with disappointment, but I can totally get a pony while your comment will never see the light of day.
You have no business offering advice when you look like a cow
Then who will be left to give advice to those who want to look like cows?
I will not see the day where my child will be bullied by fatties for not being an unhealthy fuck like them.
Stop the logic train – we had a passenger fall off.
So tell me, how many pounds have you lost with your current philosophy? Why would anyone take weight loss advice from you?
Now you’re catching on!
FYI, if you keep deleting this comment I will keep reposting it. If I have to use proxies or the tor network to continue posting, I will. Let the people “weigh in” or you’ll just continue to be bashed.
A threat and a pun all in the same comment? I’m a lucky fatty. To say thanks, instead of deleting it I just didn’t approve it – comment limbo for you my friend.
Seriously, why don’t you lose some weight fatty?
Oh. Seriously…why didn’t someone say seriously before? Screw the mountain of research that shows that almost every attempt at weight loss fails, since you said “Seriously” I’m going to take your advice. Thank all the gods for you, random name-calling stranger on the internet.
Stop trying to justify your unhealthy lifestyle, laziness, and lack of activity by organizing people with the same attributes as you as to create a conformed sense of community to make you feel better. Fatty.
Excellent use of vocabulary from your Psychology 101 summer course.
You think being a fatty is healthy you dumb bitch?
As far as being healthy, I know that fat is neither healthy nor unhealthy just like skinny is neither healthy nor unhealthy. There are unhealthy skinny people and healthy fat people and why is this concept so difficult for you people? It’s a curb that’s one inch high – you’re so athletic, step up.
If we were attacked by terrorist, the fatties would go first, you wouldn’t even be able to defend our country….God bless everybody…Even the fatties I suppose.
Ok General Genius, let’s examine the situation: While it is true that those who are first killed are no longer available for the defense of our country, if we are attacked (by terrorists or anyone else) then the people nearest the attacks will likely die first, regardless of size. This is already an observable phenomenon. But thank you for being so gracious as to maybe kind of ask God to bless the fatties. Because God listens to you when it comes to who deserves Her blessings. Sure, that’s exactly how it goes, and we’ll all back you up on that -even if they question us separately.
PRIVATE PYLE, YOU ARE A DISGUSTING FAT BODY!
Spoiler Alert – Private Pyle kills the person said this to him at the end of the movie. Count yourself lucky that I have more class than you and more stability than Private Pyle. Also, of course you lacked the intestinal fortitude to sign your real name or use your real e-mail address so it would be difficult to find you anyway.
Never wrestle with a pig? But Ragen – you ARE a pig
The cleverness…it’s…it’s just overwhelming. Dear gods I’ve met my match.
Fat people are race traitors and should be shot.Holy shit. I didn’t realize how fucking retarded fat people are.
This moment of cultural competency brought to you by my hate mailers.
Your ignorance is a fucking god damn miracle
Can I buy some punctuation or a compound word here?
You’re a prime example of Natural Selection. You wouldn’t last 30 days before civilization. Humans aren’t meant to sit around and eat shit all day. There were no obese people in hunter-gatherer communities, and they consistently exercised. So no, it isn’t fucking genetics again. Please educate yourselves, so you don’t retard the next generation into obesity.
In order for this to insult me you should have said that I’m an affront to Natural Selection. If I’m a prime example then everyone should be fat. There aren’t a lot of things that were meant to sit around and eat shit all day – there are some beetles I think. The hunter gatherer people had significantly shorter life spans than we do today. In fact the trajectory for increased weight and increased lifespan match each other – perhaps there’s the Natural Selection you were looking for earlier. You do not retard people into body size. Retard means to slow down not grow bigger. The fact that a request to educate myself comes from you is basically an indictment against the concept of education.
Sure delete this comment so no one can see how fucking stupid you are. All of the people on this blog need some common sense, so actually let them see this.
Actually I deleted the comment so that no one can see how fucking stupid you are. I was trying to do you a favor but hey, your wish is my command buddy.
FYI rolls are not curves
In fact they are.
you all are stupid freeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe things have changed since I was a spelling bee kid, but back then you weren’t allowed to make up for a misspelling by adding additional exclamation points.
you should probably kill yourself, you digusting fucking pig.
Why in the world would you use “probably” in this sentence? If you can’t tell me to definitely kill myself who’s going to respect you?
Yeah, no… you’re fat.
Yeah, yeah… I knew this one already, you can tell because I named the blog Dances with Fat.
Eventually. And hey, Right back atcha!
There are some people on this earth who do not deserve the ability to pick up pencil and paper. How stupid to write something like that.
Um, I don’t know how you made this comment but this is the internet – no pencil or paper required.
The only thing that saves me from fatasses is knowing that my hobbies include things I’ll never see them do. Like running marathons, and continuing to live into my 60s.
The only thing that saves me from haters is knowing how absolutely wrong they are…
This blog gave me cancer.
That’s a coincidence because I was thinking that you are a cancer on this blog.
Oh hell no. You & yours would be better served taking your fat pride somewhere else.
Seriously? This is MY blog. You can take your fat hate somewhere else, oh wait, I just did that for you. Thanks for your contribution to the my fundraising.
We could turn fat people into fuel for our cars! That would break us of our dependence on oil.
We could turn bigoted jerks with too much time on their hands into fuel for our cars. That would break us of our dependence on oil and save us from having to read the drivel written by bigoted jerks with too much time on their hands.
Linda Bacon is a fraud and you fatties eat too much bacon.
I see what you did there, making a joke out of her last name. That was really clever. Well, it would be if we were in junior high school. But we’re not. So this is just weak. Also, you might want to Google “fraud” since Linda Bacon has earned her doctorate in physiology, specializing in weight regulation and holds graduate degrees in psychology, specializing in eating disorders and body image, and kinesiology, specializing in exercise metabolism, and has professional experience as a professor, researcher, psychotherapist, exercise physiologist, and consultant and you are on the internet trying to use weak wordplay to make fun of people.
This is why everyone hates fat people. You all seem to think that being 300lbs overweight is healthy and that the whole world says otherwise only because they feel insecure about themselves. Seriously, I hate every single one of you.
Ok, just like everyone isn’t a sad lonely person who spends their days spreading hate on the internet, everyone also doesn’t hate fat people. And I’m not saying that 300 pounds is healthy or unhealthy, I’m saying that 300 pounds is a body weight, not a health diagnosis and plenty of doctors, scientists and others agree with me. I wouldn’t mind if you didn’t agree, I am concerned that you don’t seem to be able to grasp a simple concept.
fatties gonna fat, let them eat themselves to death, the more they commit foodicide the more skinny bitches there will be for me to pound.
Setting aside the fact that no self-respecting woman would have you, trust me when I tell you that the odds of you getting laid are miniscule enough without eliminating options.
As a fatty that’s lost 60 pounds I’m pretty god damned mad right now.
You have a right to your feelings but ask yourself – why are you mad? And why do you lack the emotional intelligence to separate your choices from the choices of others? And why do you think I care?
I would study for 8 years and become a doctor, just so I could make fun of a fatty and see the smug look disappear from their endless chins. Funny thing is, I’m actually in med school! can’t wait
Of course you are honey – you’re definitely not living a lonely and friendless existence which you’re dealing with by striking out at random people on the internet. Nope, you’re in med school, that’s the story we’ll go with.
That the problem, in the end, is that fat people, especially the morbidly obese, are considered unattractive by society as a whole… And quite frankly, for good reason. An obese individual has lost all semblance of humanity, and more closely resembles a hippo, an elephant, or a whale. How could one honestly expect society to find these monstrostities attractive? But the average individual realizes that they can’t just flat out state, “I find you to be repulsive,” even though it is true, because if they were dealing with an individual who was unattractive for reasons out of their control it would be considered incredibly rude. So instead of this blunt, hurtful, yet honest statement, they make other arguments (some/many/most of which are valid, whether you choose to hide behind your blindfold of “NOT PROVEN!” or not) but honestly, we don’t care if you are unhealthy. Frankly, the faster you die off and vanish the better. At least when you are a corpse you’ll lose a whole bunch of weight.
Fat people are gross. You hurt our eyes and our sensibilities. Lose some weight and come back out in public when people can look at you without having to restrain themselves from putting out their eyes.
Wow, you have some issues, and I don’t just mean your grammar, spelling, and use of mixed metaphors. Sounds like you need to learn the super secret skill of…wait for it…looking at something else. Good luck grasshopper.
Also beautiful and fat women doesn’t exist. Except for people with a fucked up fetish.
Stop trying to justify being such a fat bitch it doesn’t happen overnight, you take a choice and decide to be a fat fuck. Makes me fucking sick
I can’t express my disappointment that we won’t be dating. And when I say I can’t express it, I mean that there isn’t any.
Only fatasses fail. Fat cunt.
You took time out of your day to type this. Assuming that you aren’t fat I think you’ve disproved your own point.
You shouldn’t have gone to the doctors, we would all rather you be dead than complaining about “really hard workouts” Did you walk on the treadmill for a couple minutes and then chow down on KFC when you got home? I bet you did you whore. Scratch that, it would be impossible to find your vagina in the vast sea of chub. So you can’t be a whore.
Is it odd that the only thing that offended me about this comment was the idea that I would complain about really hard workouts?
This is the second time i reply, i dont know why the first time my post didnt appear.
Because I found your comment rude and useless, it’s my blog, I think you’re a jerk, and I have no obligation to give you a forum in which to be a jerk.
Also please stop trying to defend being fat as something good. Perhaps it’s not as bad as some people make it out to be, but it’s definitly bad.
Could you have hedged juuuust a little more on your argument?
Health at any size? What about dead at any size?
Is there a size of people who don’t die? I was not aware…
You are hardly overweight. You barely represent overweight people.
This is a new one. Are you serious? “Hardly overweight?” Lady, I am “Type Three Super Obese” according to the (epically flawed) BMI chart. In other words, I’m so fat that it should come with a cape and a secret identity, so back off while I represent for the Fat Side.
I don’t think they want to get rid of them. I think they just don’t want to talk to or look at them because they can’t handle looking at reality.
Ok, I’m going to need you to clarify your use of them, they, them and they because I don’t know if you don’t want to look at me or if you can’t handle looking at reality- seriously, don’t leave a comment that makes me use context clues to determine meaning.
You’re a fucking idiot aren’t you?
If you’re obese, you have not taken good care of yourself. Can you be thin and healthy? Not necessarily either, but at least you wont have diabetes, heart disease and other ailments that come with being overweight.
Not so much, thin people get diabetes, heart disease and all the other diseases that get correlated with obesity.
[with a picture of me doing a standing heel stretch] Ragen Chastain, author of Dances With Fat: 5’4, 284 pounds. Somewhat impressive for a sea whale
Actually really, really impressive for a sea whale as it lacks the legs and arms that are so very important to this particular move. I, however, would have to be classified as a landwhale as I am clearly on land.
Good for you, you ****ing dance, what do you want? a cookie?
Yes please. Chocolate Chip.
I wanna punch her in the face along with any other people that have the same logic
Fat people should all be killed. Fact. Deal with it, stretchmarks.
This word “fact”, I do not think it means what you think it means.
Sorry fattcakes [sic], fat is unhealthy no matter how much you can do.
Sorry commenter, you misspelled fattcakes. It’s one “t”.And probably hyphenated. Maybe I could just be called “bundt cakes” instead?
I hope you know people, deep inside, laugh at you dancing.
Nope, I don’t. Thanks for spending your day watching me dance though. Sounds like it was a fabulous use of your time.
You look like a beached whale that grew legs.
Ok, but it seems like in that case you maybe would have been better off going with elephant or rhino or some kind of fat land animal. Just a suggestion though.
I want to punch you over and over in your fat stomack [sic] and watch you die landwhale
I think you’re a sad human being and I feel bad for every single person who has to interact with you. And not just because you can’t misspelled stomach.
If your doctor killed you it would’ve been a good thing, it would have improved the gene pool. Kidding of course, there is no way any man would ever fuck you.
Somebody’s not getting any and is juuuust a little bitter.
There’s a lot of painfully stupid stuff written by the HAES crowd, but this might take the cake for amount of idiocy per paragraph
Why thank you, I do strive to be the best. I’m not sure that a paragraph is a particularly useful measurement of idiocy – paragraphs being variable in size and wholly non-existent in some writing. I would have gone with “Word-for-word the most idiocy” but that’s just me.
And omg..what makes me more mad, is that this dancingwithfatty fatty says “I’d like to see someone come up to my face and make fun of me”, and bitch, oh mah gad, i would be honored to slap your double chin anyday, then proceed to help you order a diet coke.
Leaving alone the mayor-of-wackadoodle-town overreaction of wanting to physically assault me because you don’t like the way that I live my life, I’m suprised that since I’m such a big fat fatty you would think I’d need help ordering food.
i hope she dies of something that is caused from being fat ahaha
I hope that you have instant karma.
just cause your fat and mad that you feel guilty for being fat doesn’t mean you have to make a fucking blog about it. posting some fucked up articles why its better not to work hard and be responsible about your health.
Why are you reading it? And how are you so bad at comprehending it?
dancing is not the only form of exercise you should do. she is just creatively avoiding exercise.
This right here is a special kind of stupid. The first sentence admits that dancing is exercise. The second sentence accuses me of avoiding it. Not to mention that nowhere does it say that dancing is the only exercise that I do. You’ve actually managed to make something up and still argue it unsuccessfully. I think the internet may not be for you.
FATTIES GONNA FAT
I’d respect you if you had said fat Fatties gonna fat fattily (thereby making fat into four separate parts of speech). But you didn’t and so this is weak.
Clever fat fuck, you can’t keep my comments off your page.
Clever fat fuck can and did. But you’re getting your day in the sun now.
So…If I call a fat bitch a disgusting fat whale and put my dick in her mouth and say suck she’ll empty my balls completely
Therapy. Lots of it. Right now. Also, no.
Fuck you Fatty McFattsworthe, Fifth Baroness of Chubbington. Spinning around for ~2 minutes does not an exercise make. If you devoted as much time to self-improvement as you do to self-delusion, you would actually be as healthy as you claim to be.
I love that so much I’m thinking of buying a castle and changing my name. As for the rest of it blah blah I’m bored now.
Every time a fat person eats, a child dies of hunger. Childkilling landwhales must die and she should be first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What is with the landwhale thing? There are fat animals that live ON LAND there’s no need to make up an animal.
Fucking kill that fat cunt with a pipebomb
Are you sure that a pipebomb is the way to go here? It seems like there are better weaponry choices.
Sure, you can be beautiful and fat, but theres nothing beautiful about someone being so fat that their heart explodes. If everyone only tries to look at the good then they wont spend any time trying to work on their problems.
At least the fat surrounding the heart will keep the explosion from getting all over everyone. See, I’m a giver.
Telling someone that they were too fat for an X-ray? That would be the best part of my day, actually. I would find and purchase with my own funds an industrial, OSHA-style warning sign that says clearly and prominently, “Weight Limit XXX lbs.” (with XXX being the weight limit, most likely 300 or 350 pounds) for display on the machine if I were the radiology tech. My heart would sing every time I got to point to the sign and say, “Sorry, you are too fat to be scanned by this machine.”
Denying people health care and shaming them. Must be magic to know you.
For what it’s worth, I kinda think that this lady is a little crazy
This isn’t really hate mail, it just made me laugh so I decided to include it. I’m glad that this person included the phrase “for what it’s worth”.
Fat and fit is a joke. HAES is a joke. Linda Bacon and Eggs is a fraud.
You FA people are beyond delusional. You don’t speak for even .00000!% of fat people. Get A CLUE!!!
I think that adults calling other adults names is definitely one of the top signs of a well thought out comment don’t you? Also, I’m confused about “.00000!% It sort of looks like what the Tazmanian Devil would come up with if asked for a very small percentage.
If HAES worked doctors would recommend it. You fucking fat retard do you realize your propaganda is killing people?
Dieting doesn’t work and doctors recommend that all the time. Regardless, I don’t know how I’ll ever manage to do as much for society as someone who calls people “fucking fat retards”. Kudos to you, good use of your limited time on Earth.
