Breaking the Myth of Promoting Obesity

One of the challenges of being a visible fat body is being subject to all sorts of accusations about my lifestyle, my health and my right to exist happily. One charge that gets thrown around constantly is “you’re promoting obesity.”

I always wondered how a fat person posting a cute outfit is somehow promoting a certain body type. The reality is, confident fat bodies make people squirm in discomfort because it challenges the status quo. It threatens to hurt a commercial system steeped in diet culture because if people learn to be happy in their bodies they won’t clamor for all the diet trends for sale.

To assume that because I am comfortable in my skin thus I must be promoting obesity is literally one of the most foolish things I’ve ever heard.

Below is a video where I share my thoughts on promoting obesity and why it is complete rubbish. If you like what you see please feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel!
