I don’t do it because I am bothered. And I don’t do it to retaliate. So many people are shamed for being fat. They are told they look wrong. People assume that they are unhealthy. This message is so prevalent that overweight people start to believe this drivel. It can lead to unhealthy diets, eating disorders, depression, and sometimes worse.
I think it’s important for someone to stand up to these bullies. I have the wit and knowledge to make them look silly. I have the influence to change perceptions.
Maybe it will enlighten someone who bullies fat people. Maybe it will empower someone with weight issues. Maybe it will do nothing.
All I know is ignoring problems never seems to solve them.
