Being Fat On Your PeriodBeing overweight isn’t easy. Accepting yourself and your body is a big decision. There are ways to make it easier. Emily made her decision three years ago. One day, she made the decision to request a table at a restaurant. She was overwhelmed and her chest swelled as she spoke her words.
Many people hate fat. Fat phobia is a common problem and is socially acceptable. Many complain about the “evils” that fat people have done 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 an appropriate place. And we need to acknowledge that obesity isn’t just an aesthetic issue and a mental health issue.
Numerous studies in recent years have revealed that bullying is mostly caused by fat-hatred. Despite these alarming statistics numerous public safety agencies continue to pursue policies that promote the rage of discrimination, cruelty and apathy towards others. For instance, “Too much screen time is bad” is still a well-known slogan in public health campaigns. Researcher Cat Pause spent months researching public health campaigns worldwide.
In recent years activists who advocate for fat acceptance have been working to protect fat people from discrimination in the workplace. In Michigan the fat-acceptance activists successfully lobbied for the law that protects against discrimination based on weight that has impacted the way that employers treat overweight employees. In addition, fat acceptance activists have worked to make the fashion industry more inclusive. The industry was traditionally heavily dominated by thin white women. As of 2017, only a handful cities and states ban weight-based discrimination.
Although fat was once considered an unfavorable trait, it has been reinterpreted in recent times. Prior to the 1940s, fat was often associated to being overweight or obese, or obese. However, the body positivity movement has changed this perception. Women are more confident to accept their bodies and fat is no longer viewed negatively with the stigmatization of or triggering negative emotions. It is possible to view fat in a positive light.
While being overweight can make people feel more isolated however, the majority of people are able to cope with the effects of being obese. Some people are denied employment due to being overweight. Many report that being fat can even make it difficult to get into relationships with other people. In addition to the negative impact on the body, being fat is also associated with emotional and psychological issues. In some cases people put off their lives until they are thin.
Research shows that being overweight or obese can result in psychological consequences. Children who are obese or overweight are also more likely to be bullied. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) One-third of children are obese or overweight. It is important to encourage healthy body image for children.
The American culture has been faced with an examination of weight and fat in recent decades. Despite increasing body acceptance, women still consider the accumulation of fat around their middle to be taboo. The ideal size for women has changed significantly from the coke-skinny look of the ’90s. Today, being fat is having rolls and other body parts that don’t conform to the hourglass shape. The term “visible fat” refers to someone who is overweight.
Over time, this social preference for thinness has morphed into a medical opinion. In the 1930s, for example being five feet five inches tall and 125 pounds was considered thin. In the present, a similar weight and height would be considered to be overweight. Although nobody can point to one study to confirm it, the idea of thinness is firmly entrenched within the medical establishment.
Because of this, people who are overweight are frequently not treated with respect and aren’t given timely treatment. People who are overweight are less likely to seek medical attention because they fear being assessed. This leads to a worse state of health than someone with a more realistic perception of their weight.
Being overweight increases the risk of many illnesses, including diabetes stroke, heart attack and blindness. However, obesity doesn’t necessarily cause these diseases. Many obese people are metabolically healthy and don’t exhibit any symptoms of these diseases at an early stage. Although they appear healthy and thin in their youth, they could be more severe later on in the course of their lives. My father is a good instance. He has a BMI of twenty- and twenty-five and has been taking medications for high cholesterol for several years.
