4th Estate = 5th Column
The last thing of note she did was claiming she would do an ironman triathlon, grifting for donations for special bikes and swim coaching and whatever. But then a year passed where she didn't try and do it...then another year...and so on until today. She's pretty diminished now but back when reddit wasn't as infested and controlled by globalist cucks, she had a lolcow subreddit following (there's still a small subreddit about her, but it's kinda died) and was consistently showcased on /r/fatpeoplehate. She may have been the first deathfat lolcow since she's been doing her thing for years and years.She just doesnt seem to make a spectacle of herself like the others do. Only things I really remember ofher are her cheating races and having to be picked up by about 4 women when she tried to kneel.
Her big thing was claiming she was a "trained researcher"...whatever that means. Her claim was that she was proof that people who were fat could be just as active and healthy as thing people, since she was an "award winning" dancer. That award she still upholds was from some minor dancing tournament years ago. She used that and her "trained researcher" claim to get speaking gigs at random universities to talk about HAES and how fat people could be active and healthy.Ragen Chastain is hilariously scientifically illiterate, bizarre looking, and ridiculously self serious. She's shared and revered by the HAES folk as if she's an expert despite having no qualifications aside from an incomplete humanities degree.
Ragen's partner, Julianne, was a picture perfect representation of what happens to an older deathfat. There haven't been pictures or info on her for years—other than slight appearances a few times—but she was immobile even at Ragen's peak back in 2014ish. There was a blogpost Ragen did about how hard it was to get around a major international airport with Julianne, how exhausting it was, how it wasn't accommodating of her partner's special needs, etc. But that was literally just about switching terminals at a major airport—something tens of millions of people do every year. The consensus on Julianne is that, if she hasn't died (which I think we would have learned about), she is seriously ill. That doesn't fit with Ragen's HAES bullshit, so she's been mostly invisible recently as far as I know.
Ragen last updated her blog, Dances With Fat, in March. She's still posting on Facebook, but it seems her time in the limelight is over. She's still grifting some online workshops and has some bs books out that people can purchase. I haven't kept up with her much, but checking the Ragen Chastain subreddit it seems she is done faking her ironman training (she has a blog about it called Ironfat which hasn't been updated since last May) since she hasn't posted about it in a year.
Lastly, Ragen claims she's a marathoner for finishing a marathon as the fattest person. This was years ago, and her record was 12 hours and 20 minutes. Yes, she took 12.5 hours to finish a marathon. Someone in the Seattle marathon apparently finished a marathon in 12 hours and 40 minutes. He has cerebral palsy and pushes his wheelchair backwards with his toes. Make of that what you will. When she finished her marathon, the organizers had all already left and packed up the finish line stuff. Doing some simple math, if you walk briskly at 4 mph then you'll finish a marathon in 6.5 hours, which means she was going about 2 mph. That's slower than a child.
Anyways, done with the Ragen sperging. Following people like her is what gave me the motivation to lose weight years and years ago, so she's kind of been a personal lolcow since before I even knew what a lolcow was.
She could just get a bidet if that's such a problem. I'm surprised more deathfats don't have bidets—you don't need to use a rag on a stick if you have one.To be able to wipe your ass wherever you happen to shit?
