..By chance, I am a competitive athlete. But I’m not ultra mega skinny. And I don’t want to be. Where the hell would I keep the muscle to compete if I was?
Moving on. Summed up and shortened, my answer would simply be a big.. fat.. no (YES PUN INTENDED). But let’s elaborate. We do not need fat acceptance. I’ll be blunt. What you are saying translates to this: ‘we need fat acceptance so fat people can think it’s ok and normal to be fat’. That’s acceptance.
Cue another N O. Why? Am I not being mean? No, the majority of society today is a bunch of weak people who can’t handle straight up honesty. And I won’t approve of that, either. I don’t- and the next generations don’t- need a society that is bred of anomalies of nature, grown not to survive naturally but on medical advances and this poor planet’s already drained natural resources: a society whose social environmental structure is weighed down (YES HAH PUN INTENDED) by the strains of obesity.
Pretty much all of what I’m saying is this: being overweight CANNOT be normalized because it’s unhealthy, scientifically abnormal, it puts a strain on taxpayers, and it puts a strain on future society.
