We live in a society where beauty is judged by our BMI (body mass index), obsessed with body image and marked by a fear of fat. We have to talk about that!
We must question it, because the enormous value we place on how we look affects every one of us. And do we really want to live in a society where ppl are denied their basic humanity if they don't subscribe to some arbitrary form of appceptable?
It is this fear that's feeding the diet industry, which is keeping so many of us from making peace with our own bodies. We have to talk about the real fear- fatphobia. Fat activism refuses to indulge this fear.
By advocating for self-determination and respect for all of us, we can shift society's reluctance to embrace diversity and start to celebrate the myriad ways there are to have a body.
