The Shame of Fat Shaming

It’s easy to get fat in America – more than a third of adults are obese – but it’s not easy to be fat.

Unfortunately there’s a lot of fat shaming going on, something that is shameful:

The New York Times: The Shame of Fat Shaming

It’s sad that people receive ineffective advice to lose weight (“eat less, move more”), the environment works against them all the way, and when they fail, people blame them and shame them, making it ever more unlikely that they’ll ever succeed.

It’s a disgrace, and we need to change it. We have to help people more effectively (when they ask for it and want it), and we need to stop fat shaming. It’s simply as bad as racism or sexism – and it’s certainly not helping people.
