Just an update: This is part one of a new poster series I’m working on that focuses on using blunt and unapologetic messaging to incite thought and reaction (hopefully of a positive or inquisitive nature) regarding fat discrimination, health, obesity hysteria, etc.
[Part Two: Fat ≠ Death]
Actually there is an obesity epidemic. I don’t discriminate based on weight, but there is a problem here.
Whenever I get people reblogging my work just to dismiss it or “correct” it, I wonder why they waste the effort of doing so when they can put that same effort towards actually looking into it and learning something new.
Suppose it must be heaps easier to just reblog and refute rather than challenge your own ways of thinking and do a little research, but I promise it’s worth looking into. Hell, just Googling “There is no obesity epidemic” or “obesity epidemic myths” comes up with a few interesting results to get you started.
