Phew – this is such a loaded question on such a loaded topic. Because its seems like we’re all encouraged to have an opinion on other people’s weight and size.
Most people though are way too ‘polite’ to tell people to their face what that opinion is.
And, way too polite to call anyone on bigotted behaviour.
I’ve noticed that telling people they’re fat, that they shouldn’t eat something, or shouldn’t wear something makes them feel a lot of things – like embarrassed, angry, unworthy, upset, tearful, defensive, aggressive, but never more likely to stop doing what you think they shouldn’t do.
And that whole conversation came back to me when I watched the couple of videos on this page.
Once you’ve watched them, please come back and tell me what you think, this is such an important conversation to have and I’d appreciate you joining in.
