The Power of Dieting
Given the number of “obese” and “overweight” individuals in our society, Fat Acceptance should be huge! However, some of the most adamant opposition to fat acceptance is fat people themselves.
It’s understandable. When we argue that permanent weight loss is rare, we are taking away their hope of ever being “normal.” We are basically telling them that if they want to be accepted they must fight society, and even then, acceptance may not come.
Instead, most of them try more and more desperate means to lose the weight — choosing risky surgeries and dangerous drugs over body acceptance. Many of them choose these things until the “weight loss solutions” kill them.
Everyone has the right to handle fat however they want. Just don’t try to tell me fat is a choice.
