‘Fat Sex Therapist’ Says Personal Trainers Are ‘Nazis’, Thinness is ‘White Supremacy’ And Compares Dieting To Rape

A self-proclaimed “Fat Sex Therapist” recently gave a disturbingly unhinged talk at St. Olaf College in Minnesota, where she compared personal trainers to Nazis. She then compared a parent putting a child on a diet to sexual assault… that’s right child rape.

“I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex,” Sonalee Rashatwar, whose Instagram username is “The Fat Sex Therapist,” stated authoritatively Thursday from the main stage of St. Olaf College. “I experience diet culture as a form of assault because it impacts the way that I experience my body.”

Rashatwar made these comments and much more during her two-hour speech which was sponsored by St. Olaf College’s Wellness Center, Women’s and Gender Studies Department, and Center for Equity and Inclusion, on the topic of “radical fat liberation.” If that doesn’t show how college is a massive waste of money, time, and sanity, I don’t know what will.

Her lecture included assertions that fitness contributed to the recent Christchurch mosque shooting, that people should “challenge” the rule of law, as well as the authority of the police. “Tonight we’re gonna start by talking about how to politicize our definition of body image,” Rashatwar began, “because oftentimes we actually get stuck thinking of it from a white supremacist lense.” She explained how “white supremacy happens every day in all these little things.”

Rashatwar also had the nerve to list science as one of the allegedly white supremacism everyday things.

“We should be critical of the use of science and the production of knowledge to continue promoting this idea that certain bodies are fit, able, and desirable…is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?” Rashatwar asked. She then linked science to Nazism suggesting that obesity is unhealthy to Nazism, saying that “fatphobic” science is “often actually eugenic science….eugenic science is Nazi science.” This woman needs a mental health intervention stat.

Rashatwar’s so-called intersectional rambling was not a one-off event at a stereotypically liberal university. Rather, it came as part of a 12-date nationwide speaking tour, during which she dissects issues like “How Fat Queers the Body,” and “Health is a Social Construct.” She is also a licensed therapist.

From Campus Reform:

“However, she then pivoted to support scientific findings as she pondered “intentionally pursuing weight loss,” claiming that “what we’re discovering scientifically is that that’s not possible.”

“After addressing the topic of science and making her claim that there is no connection between high blood pressure and obesity, Rashatwar turned to discuss political philosophy and policy.

“This conversation about pushing off our own wellbeing onto the individual is part of these 1980s Reagan era policies that again try to move that structural obligation of a system and this social safety net onto the individual,” Rashatwar said, “instead of thinking that there should be social supports that also help me to subsidize my food costs.”

“Her solution to these problems of society requiring individual responsibility was calling students “to challenge all authorities, not just the authority that science has given but also legal authority…the same way I want us all to challenge laws, I want us all to challenge prisons and policing.”

“Rashatwar specified how she personally enacts these ideas in her life as a sexual trauma therapist. She said that in her professional role, her code of ethics dictates an absolute prohibition on physical contact with clients. However, Rashatwar claimed that “I will never live by a professional code of ethics that tells me what I am allowed and not allowed to do with my body.”

“Finally, Rashatwar took a crack at recent events, particularly the Christchurch massacre in New Zealand.

“I do not think it’s surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand was also a fitness instructor,” Rashatwar said. After making this claim, she added that the shooting is “a clear communication that there’s still an idealized body. Nazis really love this idea of an idealized body, and so it makes a lot of sense to me that a fitness instructor…might also think about an idealized body in this thin white supremacist way.”

“After the lecture, Campus Reform spoke with Will Douty, a freshman St. Olaf student in attendance, who has lost over 100 pounds during his own personal health journey.

“The entire speech was very troubling to me,” Douty said. “I know from personal experience that health is absolutely connected with weight… when you decide to give up and claim that doctors are lying to you and you’re perfect the way you are, all you truly end up with is repressed emotions and an early funeral…I can guarantee that maintaining healthy eating habits will help me live a much longer and healthier life than I was originally on track to have. Your life can only improve if you take responsibility for yourself.”

“Campus Reform also reached out to the St. Olaf media department about Rashatwar’s claims that the values of a fitness instructor parallel those of the Third Reich. No response was received in time for publication.”

Gee, she blames everything wrong in her world on Reagan and Republicans. Who didn’t see that coming? Everything is someone else’s fault

Contrary to what this woman is peddling, fatness is not a product of racism. It is the product of a lack of discipline and self-control, and in some cases… genetics. Thin people are healthier than overweight individuals and that does not make me ‘fatphobic’.

Rashatwa’s biography on her website reads, “Sonalee Rashatwar (she/they) LCSW MEd is an award-winning social worker, sex therapist, adjunct lecturer, and grassroots organizer. Based in Philly (licensed in NJ, and PA license is pending), she is a fat queer non-binary therapist working as a sexual violence crisis counselor, specializing in treating sexual trauma, body image issues, racial or immigrant identity issues, and South Asian family systems, while offering fat and body positive sexual healthcare.” She is a seriously disturbed woman who is trying to teach others to be as twisted, sick, and demented as she is.

In 2018, Rashatwar gave a talk at the University of Vermont where she claimed that “thinness is a white supremacist beauty ideal,” which garnered significant attention. It should not have gotten any attention at all… in fact, it should have gotten her fired and ridiculed. It’s nothing more than social justice, politically correct cow dung.
