Many people hate fat. Fat phobia is a common problem and is accepted by society. Many complain about the “evils” that fat people cause to society. They say that fat people are not part the body positivity movement, and they spread false information regarding obesity and weight loss. They are bullies. However, fat acceptance does have an appropriate place. It is important to recognize that obesity isn’t only an aesthetic problem, but also an issue for mental health.
In recent years, many studies have pointed to fat-hatred being the most prevalent reason behind bullying among children. Despite these alarming numbers, many public safety institutions continue to pursue policies that encourage hatred, discrimination and disregard for others. For instance, “Too much screen time is bad” is still a common theme in public health campaigns. Researcher Cat Pause spent months researching public health campaigns around the world.
In recent years activists who advocated for fat acceptance have worked to protect fat people from workplace discrimination. In Michigan, fat activists successfully lobbied for an act to protect against discrimination based on weight that has impacted 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 dominated by thin, white women. Only a few cities and states have banned weight-based discrimination as of 2017.
Although once fat was thought of as an undesirable attribute but it has been reinterpreted in recent years. Before the 1940s, being fat was typically associated with being overweight or obese, or corpulent. This has changed since the body positivity movement. Women are 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 also be viewed positively.
While being fat may cause certain people to be more socially isolated, the majority are still coping with the negative effects of being fat. Some people are denied jobs because of their weight. Many complain that being fat can even make it difficult to enter into intimate relationships. Being overweight can have negative effects on your body and cause emotional and psychological problems. Some people delay their lives until they lose weight.

The American culture has had to face an uproar over weight and fat in recent decades. Despite increasing body acceptance women still view the accumulation of fat around their midsection taboo. The ideal size for women has evolved considerably from the coke-skinny style of the ’90s. Today, being fat is having rolls and other body parts that don’t fit the hourglass shape. If you’re fat you’re considered to be visibly fat.
In the course of time, this popular desire for thinness has transformed into a medical decision. In the 1930s, for instance, being five feet five inches tall and weighing 125 pounds was considered thin. Today, a similar height and weight would be considered fat. Although no one can refer to any study to confirm it, the idea of thinness is widely accepted in the medical establishment.
As a result, the negative perception of obese people has led to an inability to make a correct diagnosis and timely treatment. Due to this, people who are overweight are reluctant to seek medical attention as they fear being criticized for their weight. This could lead to an unhealthy condition that is more severe than someone with an objective 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 overweight. In fact, some obese individuals are healthy metabolically and don’t show early signs of these illnesses. While they may appear thin and healthy in their early years, they could become more severe later in life. My father is a good example. He has BMI ranging from twenty to twenty and has been on medications to lower cholesterol levels for many years.
