‘Queer Fat Club’ infiltrated by skinny ‘he/they’ who ‘identifies as 275 pounds’

Apr 1, 2024 | Political News

A man with a slender build attempted to join a club for queer and fat people but his presence was not welcomed despite self-identifying himself to the group as “queer” and “275 pounds.” 

Video footage of the incident has since gone viral across X, formerly known as Twitter, which had many claiming that if someone can identify as the opposite sex or nonbinary then identifying as “fat” should be accepted too. 

According to the video, a woman in the group looked perplexed as to why the man showed up to the club, which was being convened in an online forum. 

“Um, this is a queer fat club,” the woman said to the man. 

He responded, “Um, I'm queer and fat.” 

“Okay. Thank you for joining,” she said with a confused look on her face. “We're just introducing ourselves at the moment. Do you want to go ahead and introduce yourself?” 

“Yeah. My name's Joe. I go by he/they and I identify as 275 pounds,” he said. “I know it's kind of a shock. I know it's kind of a new thing.” 

The woman then asked him, “Are you comfortable leaving the group at the moment?” 

“Why?” he responded. 

“I'm not understanding why you're joining the group,” she responded.  

“This is the queer and fat group, no?” he asked. 

“Yeah,” she responded.  

“That's what I came here for,” he said. 

“Okay, and you said you identify as fat?” she asked, adding “This is just for fat-bodied people.” 

“Yeah, I understand. I identify as a fat-bodied person,” he said then asked, “Are you guys comfortable with me here?” 

The group ultimately decided that they were not comfortable with his presence and then voted that he leave the group. 

Individuals on social media were quick to weigh in on the video, in which they pointed out the irony of the situation.  

“You can be a fake woman but you cannot be a fake fat,” one person wrote. 

“But he IDENTIFIES as fat! What are they, bigots?” another questioned. 

“What dont you understand? He identifies as a fat queer. No different than Dylan Mulvaney identifying as a woman. Neither case has to make any sense whatsoever and while it’s not required for Dylan to have XX chromosomes likewise does this person have to be fat. It’s not complicated, you made the rules!” another added.
