Many people hate fat. The stigma of fat phobia is widespread and is socially acceptable. Many complain about the “evils” that fat people cause to society. They claim that people who are fat are not part the body positivity movement and spread false information about weight loss and obesity. They are bullies. However, fat acceptance has its place. It is important to realize that fatness is more than an aesthetic issue. It can also be an issue for mental health.
In recent years, many studies have identified fat-hatred being the most prevalent reason for bullying in children. However, despite these alarming statistics many institutions of public health have policies that further inflame the issue of discrimination and cruelty. For example, “Too much screen time is harmful” is still a popular slogan in public health campaigns. Researcher Cat Pause spent months researching public health campaigns across the globe.
In recent years activists who advocate for fat acceptance have been working to protect fat people from discrimination in the workplace. Michigan fat activists were able to successfully lobby for a law against discrimination based on weight. This has had a major impact on how employers deal with overweight employees.

As of 2017, only a handful cities and states prohibit weight-based discrimination.
While fat was once thought of as a negative trait, it has been reinterpreted in recent years. Before the 1940s the term “fat” was commonly thought of as being fat, being obese, and being overweight. This has been changed by the body positivity movement. Women are more empowered to accept their bodies and fat is no longer associated negatively with stigmatizing or triggering negative emotions. It is possible to view fat in a positive way.
While being fat may cause certain people to be more socially isolated, the majority have to deal with the consequences of being fat. Some people are not able to work due to being overweight. Many claim that being overweight can make it difficult to maintain intimate relationships. Being overweight can have negative consequences on your body and can cause psychological and emotional problems. In some instances, people put their lives on hold until they’re slim.
In addition to the psychological consequences of being overweight, research also suggests that children who are overweight or obese are more likely to have a high chance of being bullied. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) One-third of children are overweight or obese. It is important to encourage healthy body image in children.
In recent years, America has had to confront an issue with fat and weight. Despite the increase in body acceptance the accumulation of fat around the middle is not a popular choice for women. The ideal size for women has evolved substantially from the coke-skinny appearance of the 1990s. Being fat is defined as having rolls or other body parts that aren’t the hourglass proportions. A person who is visible fat is overweight.
This preference for thinness has evolved into a medical decision. In the 1930s for instance, being five feet five inches tall and weighing 125 pounds was considered thin. In the present, a similar size and weight is considered fat. Although no single study is able to prove it however, the medical establishment has a strong perception of thinness.
Because of this, people who are overweight are frequently misunderstood and don’t get timely treatment. People who are overweight are less likely to seek medical attention because they are afraid of being judged. This leads to a worse state of health than someone with a more realistic perception of their weight.
Being overweight increases the risk of developing various illnesses, including diabetes, heart attack and stroke, and blindness. These illnesses aren’t always caused by weight gain. In fact, some obese people are metabolically healthy and do not show the first signs of illness. They may be healthy and slim when they’re young, but they could develop these illnesses later in the course of their lives. My father is an example. He has an BMI of between twenty and twenty and has been on medications for high cholesterol for many years.
