HEY EVERYBODY

Just a reminder:

Being fat doesn’t make you unhappy.

Being bullied, berated and shamed for your body does make you unhappy.

Hating your body makes you unhappy.

Not all fat people are unhappy.

Not all thin people are happy with their bodies.

Being fat isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you.

Being fat isn’t the problem.

Being surrounded by people who are jerks about it is.

So stop doing bullshit like this:

Instead, let’s talk about how weight is the number one reason why children are bullied. And how many kids hate their bodies so much that they are on diets. And maybe how enocuraging kids to accept and celebrate their bodies rather than to hate them might be a lot better solution.
