Haha. You’re so fat! (Anatomy of a Put-Down)

Great response — did you know that 85% of kids that are bullied in school are fat? And that bullying gives them more stress and contributes to them using food for comfort- a vicious cycle, and gaining weight. That bullying stays with us our entire lives!
It’s a strong person indeed, who hears themself being called “fat” as an observation, and not as in insult. It has to come from strong self-esteem and the ability to accept one’s own body even though society is not that enlightened!
