NYT piece on fat stigma

There was a lovely piece on fat stigma in the New York Times over the weekend. Click here to read it.

The crux of it is that women face worse weight discrimination than men, weight is the #1 reason why children are bullied, and fat people (sadly) tend to loathe and stigmatize themselves.

It’s a viscous cycle of hatred that needs to stop.
