I wish people would stop with this whole FAT (and skinny) thing. Especially on tumblr, I see a lot of people going “fuck yeah plus sized girls!! girls are SUPPOSED to have curves! be proud of being fat” but then also there are the pro-ana people. BOTH OF YOU ARE SO ANNOYING AND PROMOTING UNHEALTHINESS. It’s NOT healthy or okay to be fat just like it’s not healthy or okay to be underweight! Of course a person can be still attractive, but all this shit “plus sized models should be the new standard” no. nO. NO!!! Obesity is the world’s biggest and most expensive health problem, and you just want to promote it more. STOP. What we need for models and mannequins etc. is something like NORMAL WEIGHT, do you even remember that exists? EVERYTHING ISN’T JUST SKINNY OR FAT AND SHOULDN’T BE!
I thought this post was going to say something valid or remotely true but this is also trash. It is okay to be whatever you are. There are very thin, and very fat, healthy people. This is a backwards post.
^^^ no sorry but people who are very fat and obese ARE NOT HEALTHY.
The increased risk of heart problems, diabetes, thyroid problems, etc. all come from being obese or incredibly overweight. Just as there are problems with people who are ridiculously underweight. Health problems should be the number one priority, not whether or not the world finds you attractive. Average weight people, that’s who we need to glamorize.
It’s ridiculous how people get so angry when the truth is thrown out there. Obesity is UNHEALTHY. Yes there are super skinny people who are healthy because of how their body is and there are widely structured people who are healthy but what ISN’T healthy is excess fat that stresses your heart and other organs. Being under weight or over weight is bad for your health and normal weight idols should be promoted instead of trying to sugar coat things for people who don’t want to get their feelings hurt by the cold hard damn truth.
