More to Love
Even though over 40% of American adults are overweight, most people still perpetuate fatphobia and discrimination against bigger bodies. Sure, eating well and maintaining healthy eating habits is crucial, but it’s important we understand the thin line between worrying about people’s health and shameful comments about their bodies.
Sadly, hurtful comments are a part of the daily lives of most plus-size individuals. Learning how to respond to these comments from a mature place instead of an anger-fuelled one is key to their mental health. Sure, sometimes all we want is to flip people off, but it’s important we learn to react to hate with love.
