Many people hate fat. Fat phobia is a common occurrence and is accepted by society. Many people complain about the “evils” that overweight people have done to society. They argue that fat people are not part of the body positivity movement and they disseminate false information regarding obesity and weight loss. They are bullies. However, fat acceptance has a place. It is important to recognize that obesity isn’t just an aesthetic problem and an issue of mental health.
In recent years, numerous studies have highlighted fat-hatred as the number one reason behind bullying among children. But despite these alarming figures, many institutions of public health pursue policies that further inflame hatred and discrimination. For instance, “Too much screen time is harmful” is still a popular slogan in public health campaigns. Researcher Cat Pause spent months researching public health campaigns worldwide.
In recent years activists who advocated for fat acceptance have worked to protect fat people from workplace discrimination. In Michigan, fat activists successfully lobbied to create an act to protect against discrimination based on weight which has changed the way employers treat employees who are overweight. Additionally activists for fat acceptance 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 discrimination based on weight.
Although being fat was historically considered to be a negative thing, it has changed its meaning over the past few times. Prior to the 1940s, fat was usually associated with being overweight, obese, or being obese. This has changed since the body positive movement. Women are now more empowered to accept their bodies and fat is no longer viewed negatively with being stigmatized or triggering negative feelings. It is now possible to look at fat in a positive light.
Although being overweight can make people feel isolated, most people are able to cope with the negative effects of being obese. In addition to social isolation, some are denied work due to their weight. Many report that being fat can even make it difficult to get into relationships. Being overweight can have negative effects on your body, and may cause psychological and emotional problems. Some people delay their lives until they lose weight.
In addition to the psychological effects of being overweight, the research also shows that children who are overweight or obese are more likely to be at a higher chance of being bullied. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention One-third of children meet the criteria of overweight or obese. Therefore, it’s crucial to promote a healthy body image in children.
In recent years America has had to face a reckoning about the weight and fat. Despite the increasing acceptance of body fat women still view the accumulation of fat around their middle to be taboo. The ideal size for women has evolved substantially from the coke-skinny appearance of the 90s. Being overweight is defined as having rolls or other body parts that aren’t in the hourglass proportions. If you’re fat then you’re considered to be overweight.
This preference for thinness has developed into a medical opinion. In the 1930s, for instance, being five feet five inches tall and weighing 125 pounds was considered to be thin. Today, a similar height and weight would be considered to be fat. Although nobody can point to one study to support this, the notion of being thin is well-established in the medical establishment.
Due to this, people who are obese are often ignored and don’t receive timely treatment. Because of this, those who are overweight are hesitant to seek medical attention as they fear being judged as fat. This could lead to a worse health condition than someone who has a realistic perspective of their weight.
Being fat increases the risk of a variety of diseases, such as diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and blindness. These diseases are not always caused by weight gain. In fact, some obese individuals are healthy metabolically and do not show early signs of these illnesses. They may be thin and healthy when they’re young, but they may develop these conditions later in the course of their lives. My father is an example. He has a BMI between twenty- and twenty-five and has been taking medications to lower cholesterol levels for a number of years.
