    You can say your opinion without being offensive. 

    Also thin people can be a strain on the nhs - osteoporosis, anaemia, heart problems, anorexia etc. 

    To say obesity is simply a lifestyle choice is quite short sighted. Poverty, social class, mental health, disability, physical health and many issues come to play. Of course not every person will have an illness that directly causes them to be over (or under) weight... but more often than not there is a reason for the way people weigh. Don’t think anyone would choose to be overweight if they could help it because of all the shaming that they get from everyone... even for basic things like simply showing clothes in a magazine

    Also you can’t state you aren’t being fat phobic then say something that is. That’s like me saying I’m not racist but I wish black people wouldn’t be in the media

    That's very interesting actually.

    So because healthier people live longer, they are a larger strain when they have age-related health issues than when overweight people are treated for weight-related health problems.

    Hadn't thought about that!

    So I can say whatever I want as long as I state that I’m not being offensive?

    I’m just debating the issue of fatphobia which is highly linked with the debate of whether overweight people should be allowed on the front of a magazine

    There's lots of evidence of this. Just have to search the right things to find the evidence and statistics that show obesity isn't much of a strain

    Youve clearly suggested ive got fat phobia. Labelling someoen with fat phobia is offensive. I dont call people racist when theyre not. Plus if someone was called racist they wouldnt be offended or upset cause theyd have strong beliefs that think are right. Im offended because not got fat phobia.

    There is Attucally now a lot of work that weight related issues are treated sooner , yes in the short term a gastric bypass might cost loads but in the long run could save the different NHs department Millions.

    in my opinion he’s curvy people should be on magazines Because attucally it says Hey im comfortable and happy with my body , there’s no reason why you shouldn’t.

    Bottom line is : we should all be happy in our own bodies and not care what others think of you ! ❤️“

    I did say anyone can be models.

    I'd also like to point out the term plus size is very loosely used. Many modelling agencies consider 12/14 UK size as plus size when it's infact an average size
  • JellyelephantJellyelephant Bpd bitch ✌🏼 Posts: 732 Incredible Poster
    I agree... everyone should look up @heytiffanyroe on insta and many others who promote intuitive eating and health at every size. Let’s stop shaming people for the way they look and making them feel bad for existing. The issue is so complex that none of us know what has caused someone to be the weight that they are, and therefore we should just mind our own business and stop being rude.

    A 2014 study showed 62% of England adults are overweight or obese.

    Being overweight is the average, but it's not about comparing ourselves with others, it's about being as happy and healthy as you want to be <3

    2017 the percentage is slightly less, suggesting a slow decrease
