… From a very interesting person.
I’ve been reading this woman’s posts for a while now, and she usually gives me something to think about. Today is no different.
Fat shaming is a lose-lose proposition for fat people, and that’s the way society likes it. Don’t be under any illusion that society has your best interests at heart; they want you to be so ashamed of yourself that you disappear. Hounding a teenager to suicide (trigger warning) over her size is more in their line of business. The dehumanization of fat people is condoned and even encouraged by shows like The Biggest Loser, who employs a trainer that hurls disgusting abuse at the people she is supposed to be helping. This is entertainment, folks!
Please, go read the rest of her post here. You’ll come away with a lot to think about.
