Liberal fat studies teacher who taught students that being fat is healthy dies suddenly in her sleep

A liberal University professor who taught students that being fat was healthy died suddenly in her sleep this weekend.

Dr. Cat Pausé, a Massey University ‘fat studies’ lecturer, focused on the impacts of “fat stigma” and made it her life’s mission to spread ‘body positivity’ about being morbidly obese.

Dr. Pausé, 42, described herself in her Twitter bio: “Fatlicious. Feminist. Glorifying obesity since ’09. Tearing down white supremacy w/my fat fingers. Friend of Marilyn pod. Sociology, Public Health, Fat Studies”

According to

Cat Pause,​ an academic whose research explored the impacts of “fat stigma”, has died.

A fat studies researcher, Pause’s work focused on the wellbeing of overweight people and “the effects of spoiled identities” on their health.

Pause spoke to Stuff in January about the discrimination fat people face in their everyday lives, especially in regard to healthcare. Moral panic over obesity levels perpetuate this.

“Everyone has anti-fat attitudes. We find them in kids as young as three. We’re not born hating fat people, we’re not born finding fat people disgusting, or that fat people are lazy or lacking discipline or willpower,” Pause said.

“We learned these attitudes, we can absolutely unlearn them.” reports: Labour MP Deborah Russell and others reacted to Dr. Pausé’s sudden death.


  1. It’s as ridiculous as being an anorexic health lecturer. Breaking down the stigmas of white skinny freaks.

    • Several years ago I saw a hilarious commercial that began with several skinny models standing around looking sad, and one said, “What is this emptiness I feel inside?” A narrator then walked out and said, “It’s called hunger. Eat something!”

    I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the
    simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
    people think about worries that they plainly don’t know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a
    signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  4. We’re a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community.
    Your web site offered us with helpful information to work on. You have performed a formidable task and our whole group
    shall be thankful to you.

  5. These people are in denial of the health consequences of obesity. 50 years ago, extreme, morbid obesity was rare. Now it’s common. Why?

    • toxic processed foods- just watch a movie from the 70’s or 80’s hardly anyone obese… now obesity is everywhere..people forgot how to cook and prepare food – instant food/fast food =fast death

    • Because liberal socialists have eroded the principles this country was founded on. They go after the family unit because they need people to be subservient and love the government, not God or their family. Contrary to what the Dems sell as progress or normal, the woman in the home is a role more important than these people will ever understand. When I was a boy my mom was always preparing dinner at home. We never ate out and the dinner table was where the family talked and sat together. Now days kids are left to their own devices and mom and dad are both either working or too busy stuck on their phones to even care. Meals consist of frankenfood and processed garbage.

  6. Hello There. I discovered your weblog the usage of msn. That is a really smartly written article.
    I’ll make sure to bookmark it and return to learn more of your useful
    information. Thanks for the post. I will certainly comeback.

  7. Massey University is in New Zealand. She probably had to be “vaccinated” to be on the faculty.

  8. fat kills – especially when you are over 100 lbs overweight – a mental illness as well – garbage in

  9. I believe in body acceptance in the sense of accepting the reality of your body. Don’t deny the reality of your body. Look in a full body mirror and examine your body. If you’re fat then admit it, then put together a diet and fitness plan to improve your fitness. Body culture trumps body positivity.
