1. I completely agree with you.

 

I'm overweight right now. That means I'm fat. There's no finessing that point with any intellectual honesty. All this increased sensitivity to fat and how we talk about it is a side effect of our obesity epidemic. Science shows there are true, detrimental health effects. Trying to normalize obesity is as silly as denying climate change or insisting that vaccinations cause autism. Alcoholics and drug users are told they need to admit they have a problem before they can start undoing their damaging behavior. The very same applies for overweight people.
