On the Topic of Fat-Shaming

1. High self-esteem is not the same as being “pro-fat.”

2. You don’t know someone’s story just by looking at them.

3. No one is 100% healthy.

4. I’m not fat because of lack of knowledge.

“Oh, you’re overweight? Well, here’s what you need to do…”

5. It’s never okay to be mean to someone when it comes to their mental or physical health issues.

6. You’re not telling us something we haven’t already heard.

7. My body is none of your business.

“But I have to look at you.”

8. Bottom line: Keep it to yourself.
