Many people hate fat. The stigma of fat phobia is widespread and is socially acceptable. Many people complain about the “evils” that fat people cause to society. They claim that fat people are not part the body positivity movement and spread false information regarding obesity and weight loss. They are bullies. However, fat acceptance has its place. We must also recognize that fatness is more than an aesthetic problem. It can be a mental health issue.
Numerous studies in recent years have demonstrated that bullying is caused primarily by fat-hatred. Despite these alarming numbers, numerous public safety agencies continue to implement policies that promote cruelty, discrimination and disregard for others. Public health campaigns continue to employ the phrase “Too many screens is bad” that is extremely popular. Researcher Cat Pause spent months researching public health campaigns worldwide.
In recent years activists for fat acceptance worked to protect overweight people from discrimination at work. In Michigan the fat-acceptance activists successfully lobbied to create the law that protects against discrimination based on weight which has changed the way that employers treat employees who are overweight. In addition activists for fat acceptance have worked to make the fashion industry more inclusive. Traditionally, the industry was predominantly dominated by thin white women. As of 2017, only a handful cities and states have banned discrimination based on weight.
Although fat was once considered a negative trait but it has been reinterpreted over the last few years. Until the 1940s the term “fat” was commonly associated with being fat, being obese, and being corpulent. This has been changed by 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. The new definition of being fat can be seen positively.
While being fat may cause certain people to be more socially isolated, the majority are still coping with the negative effects of being overweight. In addition to social isolation, some are denied employment because they are overweight. Many complain that being overweight can make it difficult to enter into relationships. In addition to the negative effects on the body, being fat is associated with emotional and psychological issues. Some people will put off their lives until they lose weight.
In addition to the psychological effects of being overweight, the research also suggests that children who are overweight or obese are more likely to be at a high 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 healthy body image among children.
In recent decades, America has faced a reckoning about the weight and fat. Despite increasing body acceptance women still view the accumulation of fat around their midsection as taboo. The ideal size for women has evolved significantly from the coke-skinny look of the ’90s. Being fat is defined as having rolls or other body parts that aren’t in the hourglass shape. Visibly fat is someone who is overweight.
This cultural preference for thinness has developed into a medical opinion. In the 1930s 5’5″ tall and weighing 125lbs was considered to be thin. A person of the same height and weight today would be considered obese. Even though no one can refer to one study to support this, the notion of thinness is widely accepted in the medical establishment.
Because of this, people who are obese are often misunderstood and don’t get timely treatment. Because of this, people who are fat are hesitant to seek medical attention because they are afraid of being criticized for their weight. This can lead to an unhealthy condition that is more severe than someone with a realistic perception of their weight.
Being fat increases the risk of developing many illnesses, including diabetes stroke, heart attack and blindness. However, obesity doesn’t necessarily cause these illnesses. Many obese people are metabolically healthy and don’t show any early signs of these illnesses. They may be thin and healthy when they’re young, but they could develop these illnesses later in life. My father is a good instance. He has a BMI that is between twenty- and twenty-five and has been taking medicines for high cholesterol for many years.
