Shaming is never the answer, and our so-called obesity epidemic has largely been debunked. We changed the way obesity was defined and also got older--and as most people know, you tend to gain a little weight when you get older. Plus, a demographic shift has led to more black and Latino populations, who are, naturally, when compared to white people, larger.
People who are overweight know they are overweight, and calling them fat or taking away scales won't change that. But encouraging fat shaming in the name of health is like encouraging racism in the name of homogeny.
Yeah you're right. There is no obesity epidemic. Fat people are a minority. An oppressed minority. One that needs safe spaces from straight white males. And "sizeist" patriarchal scum of the Earth!
We can all learn from Trigglypuff
