It always bothers me when I see people try to back up their body policing with health concerns. Other peoples' health is none of your business. When you see people outside do you harass them about wearing sunblock? No, it's none of your business. When you see couples holding hands in public do you harass them about safe sex? No, it's none of your business. The size and weight you perceive others to be isn't anyone's business. Other peoples' health isn't anyone else's business.

Also, can I just say that most of this “health policing” is just repackaged fat shaming?
I talk about never exercising and eating unhealthy food in excess and drinking and overworking myself ALL THE TIME, and you know how many people have approached me about with “concern about my health”?
Could that maybe be because I’m thin? (Answer: YES.)
People don’t care about my “health” because they don’t actually care about health at all. They care about fat.
They pretend that they care about health, but it’s funny how they only care about health when they’re talking to people of size.
Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.
Seriously, watch the entire thing.

This may be the most impressive thing I’ve seen in a while. Great strength, great gymnastic ability.
