My ex friend is an “anarchist fat pride” activist. It’s cool in a way and refreshing but I feel they take it too far.
Because they have made a prior decision to accept this ideology they buy into a whole network of somewhat dubious ideas that come along as like a multi-pack or bundle with the original belief.
I feel like people do this a lot. Like there are a constellation of beliefs like “Cuba, Palestine, Weed, Abortion” where a “right thinking person”believes a certain way on all these issues.
If a friend deviates from one of these ideological pre-sets you can argue with them and fall out with them.
I call it the ideologicalgrab bag or ideological BOGOF “you buy one – you get one free”.
