They claim that fat people are not part of the body positivity movement, and they propagate false information regarding obesity and weight loss. They are bullies. However, fat acceptance has its place. And we need to acknowledge that obesity isn’t only an aesthetic issue and an issue for mental health.

While fat was once thought of as a negative attribute but it has been reinterpreted over the last few years. Until the 1940s when being fat was usually associated with being fat or obese, as well as being overweight. This has changed with the body positive movement.

The American culture has had to face an uproar over weight and fat in recent years. Despite growing body acceptance women still view the accumulation of fat around their midsection 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 fit the hourglass shape. The term “visible fat” refers to someone who is overweight.
In the course of time, this popular preference for being thin has evolved into a medical decision. In the 1930s, for example, being five feet five inches tall and 125 pounds was considered thin. Today, a similar weight and height would be considered fat. Although nobody can provide a single study to prove it, the perception of thinness is firmly entrenched in the medical establishment.
Due to this, people who are overweight are often 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 can result in a worse health condition than someone with an objective view of their weight.
