Many people hate fat. The stigma of fat is widespread, and it is accepted in society. Many complain about the “evils” that fat people do to society. They claim that fat people are not part of the body positivity movement, and they propagate false information about obesity and weight loss. They are bullies. However, fat acceptance has an appropriate place. It is important to recognize that fatness is not just an aesthetic issue, but also an issue for mental health.
In recent years, many studies have highlighted fat-hatred as the number one reason behind bullying among children. Despite these alarming statistics many public safety institutions continue to implement policies that encourage the rage of discrimination, cruelty and apathy towards others. For instance, “Too much screen time is not good” is still a common theme in public health campaigns. Cat Pause, a researcher, spent months researching public-health campaigns all over the world.

Only a handful of states and cities have banned discrimination based on weight as of 2017.
While being overweight was once thought to be negative but it has changed its meaning in recent times. Until the 1940s the term “fat” was commonly thought of as being fat or obese, as well as being overweight. However, the body positivity movement has altered this perception. Women are more empowered to accept their bodies and fat is no longer associated negatively with the stigmatization of or triggering negative emotions.

Some people will put off their lives until they lose weight.
In addition to the psychological consequences of being overweight, the research also shows that children who are obese or overweight are more likely to have an increased risk of being bullied. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 13% of children are overweight or obese. Therefore, it’s important to promote a healthy body image in children.
The American culture has faced a reckoning with weight and fat in recent decades. Despite growing body acceptance, women still consider the accumulation of fat around their middle taboo. The ideal size for women has evolved considerably from the coke-skinny style of the 90s. Being overweight today is having rolls and other body parts that don’t fit the hourglass shape. If you’re overweight then you’re considered to be overweight.
This cultural preference for thinness has evolved into a medical judgment. In the 1930s for instance being five feet five inches tall and 125 pounds was considered to be thin. A person of the same height and weight today is considered to be obese. Although no one can refer to any study to confirm it, the idea of thinness is widely accepted within the medical establishment.
Because of 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 since they fear being considered a failure. This results in a less favorable state of health than someone with an accurate perception of their weight.
Being fat increases the risk of a variety of illnesses, including diabetes stroke, heart attack and blindness. These conditions are not always caused by weight gain.
