It’s sad to know that society has criticized fat people to the point they feel bad just by looking at skinnier people than them. When skinny people judge fat people it is not good because it makes them feel bad about themselves. It seems like if you want society to accept you, you have to have a perfect body shape. If society stops criticizing fat people and start helping and accepting them, they will feel like they are actually accepted

Overweight humans often get reputations for being lazy, unhealthy, and they are often labeled with having no self-control, but is being overweight really as big of an issue as people believe it is? This question has many different factors going into its answer. As discussed in the text “Fat and Happy: In defense of Fat Acceptance,” some people, including the author Mary Ray Worley, may be overweight but actually feel fit (Worley, 2013, p. 166). While some individuals feel like they are fit while being overweight, overweight people, especially women, are subject to increased risk of some types of cancers as stated by Melina Arnold in the writing “Duration of Adulthood Overweight, Obesity, and Cancer Risk in the Women’s Health Initiative: A longitudinal
The label obese, is thrown around way too much and has way to great of a meaning to be thrown around that much. A child being called obese could ruin his or her self esteem for a long time. Also, if you call a kid between the ages of 5 and 13 obese you are basically saying they will be obese forever. Obesity is a problem in America and a lot of other places, but the problem that is worth fixing is actually the way we use the
I am interested in Andrew’s comment and I want mention also fatism that it is the concept that is really bothering many people in this world. Many people do not have the ability to lose weight or their complexion look like overweight. We do not know exactly who are really healthy and who are not based of fat people. According to “Contextualizing Fat Shame”: “The overall cultural discourse on the “obesity epidemic” supports their advertising campaign…. (They support) the aesthetic contempt for the fat body…” (p.15).
Moralizing nutrition is not healthy for people or society, but society does have a responsibility to provide accurate information concerning food. Maxfield believes that, weight, diet and health have no correlation. Meaning that there are more components to health then just what you eat. I agree with maxfield on that because there are so many factors to consider when talking about health. Not only does shaming people out of eating not work, but it also causes long term harm.
He argues that women were able to handle hardships and were just as capable and well-equipped to handle them as men, if not more so. Hawthorne also shows his beliefs through the transformation of Hester’s physical appearance. She is originally described as being “lady-like” with “dark and abundant hair, so glossy that it threw off the sunshine with a gleam” and a beautiful face (Hawthorne, 46). Hester is a very pretty woman, but as she became stronger she lost some of that beauty. She loses her femininity which is consistent with the expectations of the Puritan town.
To allow this problem to snowball out of control would be a shame to society since we are well aware of the problem, and we can no longer allow more mass killings to take place that could potentially put Pearl High and Colombine Elementary to shame. The nerds, the outcasts, the jocks—all potentially have mental illnesses and problems with dealing with masculinity. This is an important fact to remember because we cannot solely focus on a minority of
What exactly is obesity? Obesity is a condition characterized by a body weight excessively higher than normal due to high amounts of body fat. It is an issue that affects many people in the U.S. including children. While child obesity is a growing concern among society, it is also an issue that should be dealt with responsibility by considering ways to solve the obesity epidemic itself,
A sad fact is that premature ejaculation is fast becoming one of the top causes for divorce. This is so sad in two ways. First, that it shows a complete lack of communication and understanding in people who should be more able to communicate with, and understand each other better than anyone else. Secondly, the other reason that it is so sad, is that it is often easily remedied. While we appreciate that divorce lawyers need to make a living too, we would rather it was through irreconcilable differences, than something that a little work can cure very quickly.
tereotyped as. She chose the word fat because it is emotional and conveys her message. Worley appeals to her audience when she talks about the actual health risk fat people face. She explains that fat people have to struggle with people criticizing their grocery carts, judging them for what they put on their plate, and sneering at them in public. Overweight people feel uncomfortable wearing clothing items such as shorts or sleeveless t-shirts or swimsuits because they are afraid people may judge them.
Worley states that fat people are often excluded from social events and situations, such as the lead role in a school play and parties. This occurs because people do not want to be around fat people for the fear of embarrassing themselves (163). Psychologically, fat people can be subjected to low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety due to the way people look down on them. In the ignorance of others and pressures of society, beauty is seen in thin and toned bodies (165). Thus, rather than accepting obese people for who they are, people disgrace them in society resulting in negative psychological and social
It is important because it connects to the audience. It connects to audience because it discusses how the production of meat leads to countless problems. The problems affect the audience because it causes many of them to pay more money and die younger. This is because the majority of people in America are overweight. Since most people are overweight in the United States, they tend to pay a lot more money for their health than healthy people do.
Mr. J. Hirby of lawdictionary.org states: Many professional athletes take steroids illegally, which not only represent a potential felony convictions but may also result in permanent career damages. People take steroids because it helps them build muscle quickly and perform more effectively at top levels. However, they are considered cheating by many sports enthusiasts, and they are banned from use because no organization wants to lend its support to a practice that leads to severe health risks for the sake of improved athletic performance (Hirby). This quote stated above describes how it is in-fact cheating to use steroids in pro sports as believed by sport enthusiasts and many fans. The quote also draws bag to reason number two.
I do believe that if you are an unhealthy individual then something needs to change. More than one-third of American adults are obese today. Obesity is the second leading cause of death in America that can be prevented and should be. People are showing that they are caring less about the media-driven characteristics now more than ever, hence the way obesity is the second leading death in America. Media contradicts itself a little, due to the fact that they want you to look a certain way but the advertisements on unhealthy food choices are so big.
