Fat Shaming is Not an Individual Problem, It’s a Cultural One

Actually, there is a level of fatness at which I would not cheer you on. The point at which you are advocating being unhealthy. I wouldn’t cheer on a drug user for fighting against meth shaming. In reality, being obese is unhealthy. Your health is your business, that’s correct. And some people are jerks. But you can’t get upset with people who speak the truth, which is that a fat lifestyle is not a healthy one, and young girls and boys should not be encouraged to be unhealthy, because “that’s who I am”. And emotions shouldn’t be given more value than logic and the truth.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
