Im So Tired Of Being So Freaking FatBeing overweight isn’t an easy life. Accepting your body and self is a big decision. There are ways to make it simpler. Emily made her decision three-years ago. One day, she decided to request an appointment at the restaurant. She was flushed, and her chest was heaving when 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 commit 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 does have its place. And we need to acknowledge that fatness is not just an aesthetic issue as well as an issue for mental health.
Numerous studies over the past few years have revealed that bullying is largely caused by fat-hatred. But despite these alarming figures numerous institutions of public health implement policies that encourage the issue of discrimination and cruelty. Public health campaigns continue to employ the phrase “Too much screen is bad” that is very popular. Researcher Cat Pause spent months researching public health campaigns across the globe.
In recent years activists who advocated for fat acceptance have took on the task of protecting overweight people from discrimination at work. Michigan fat activists have successfully lobbied for a law that prohibits discrimination based on weight. This has had a profound impact on how employers treat overweight employees. In addition, fat acceptance activists have worked hard to make the fashion industry more inclusive. In the past, the fashion industry was predominantly dominated by thin white women. Only a handful of states and cities have banned discrimination based on weight in 2017.
While fat was once thought of as an unfavorable attribute but it has been reinterpreted over the last few years. In the 1940s, being fat was often thought of as being fat, being obese, and being corpulent. This has changed since the body positive movement. With increasing numbers of women feeling empowered to accept their bodies, the word “fat” was no longer associated with negative feelings or stigma. The new definition of fat can also be seen positively.
While being overweight can make people feel isolated but most people can cope with the consequences of being overweight. Some people are denied employment because of their weight. Many people say that being overweight can make it difficult to have intimate relationships. Being overweight can have negative consequences on your body and cause psychological and emotional problems. Some people will put off their lives until they lose weight.
Research has shown that being overweight or obese can result in psychological effects. Children who are overweight or obese are also more likely to be bullied. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 13% of children are obese or overweight. It is crucial to promote healthy body image in children.
The American culture has faced an examination of weight and fat in recent decades. Despite growing body acceptance women are still hesitant to discuss the accumulation of fat around their midsection taboo. The ideal size for women has evolved considerably from the coke-skinny style of the 1990s. Nowadays, being overweight is having rolls and other body parts that don’t fit the hourglass shape. The term “visible fat” refers to someone who is overweight.
This cultural preference for thinness has evolved into a medical judgment. In the 1930s, for instance being five feet five inches tall and weighing 125 pounds was considered to be thin. A person of the same height and weight today is considered to be obese. Although nobody can refer to any study to support this, the notion of thinness is widely accepted in the medical establishment.
Because of this, people who are obese are often ignored and don’t receive timely treatment. People who are overweight are less likely to seek medical attention because they fear being assessed. This results in a less favorable health situation than a person with an accurate perception of their weight.
Being overweight increases your risk of developing a variety of ailments, including heart attack, diabetes, stroke, and blindness. These diseases are not always caused by weight gain. Many obese people are metabolically healthy and don’t show any symptoms of these diseases at an early stage. Although they appear healthy and thin in their early years but they can get more severe 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 medication to lower cholesterol levels for a number of years.
