University Celebrates ‘Plus Size Appreciation Day,’ Cancels Columbus and Pronoun Privilege – RedState

Appreciation can be a positive quality in your life.

A large number of students recently attended a Pittsburgh college.

Point Park University posted a picture to Instagram showing that they planned an epic to-do on October 6th-7th.

“In honor of Plus Size Appreciation Day,” the announcement read, “join us in celebrating plus size bodies…”

What is the best way to do this?

That would be “by decorating mirrors with positive affirmations!”

The social media entry included a drawing of what might be described as an obese woman in a bikini, sitting “Indian style” and holding her feet.

The holiday’s website,, explains thusly:

All sizes are possible to achieve extraordinary beauty. National Plus Size Appreciation day is held on October 6th to recognize the beautiful men and women who live larger than life in many different ways.

The site features ads from — “Plus size news you can use” — and FabUPlus Magazine.

Plus Size Appreciation Day (or “Plus SAD”) must be catching on; a quick perusal of Twitter reveals a host of high-fives.

One festive videoThe following is what a woman does:

“Okay, so like, don’t get me wrong. All is not well in the end of the world. However, I see the good in it. [expletive]Good today. You are kidding me? God really said, ‘Make her depressed, but delicious. Sexy and sad. We are stressed, yet elegantly dressed.’”

“Fat folks are resilient and beautiful babes, the whole lot of us,” she writes.

The heralding and selling of unmutilated Americans has increased by leaps, and even pounds in a relatively short time.

Extra-portioned individuals are a hot trend in media.

Tess Holiday was also a big hit:

Tess was eventually diagnosed with anorexia.

Intersectionality’s even found its way into the folds: In September, a southern medical school hosted a seminar on ‘Body Terrorism’ Against ‘Fat LGBTQ+ People.’

Back to Point Park, I don’t imagine a ton of the student body wanting to be recognized on such a celebratory day.

Nonetheless, for any who want to show off their extra girth unashamedly — and, perplexingly, simultaneously need affirmation — Point Park is on point.

Progress is a hallmark of the school — while it invites obese attendees to let fly their flags, where incorrect pronouns are concerned, it’s a no-fly zone (See: University Orders Adherence to Preferred Pronouns and Made-Up Monikers, Threatens ‘Action’ Regardless of ‘Intent’).

The institution’s Instagram page hails a host of commemorations throughout the year, including Hispanic Heritage Month, National Coming Out Day, and Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

As for Columbus Day, they didn’t celebrate it.

Too bad Christopher Columbus wasn’t fat.
