Fat acceptance is a radical concept that most Americans shy away from discussing. This is not the case with Hillel Schwartz’s essay “Fat and Happy?” from his book Never Satisfied. Schwartz discusses the way fat people are treated by society and what he believes life would be like if we lived in a Fat Society rather than the current Skinny World we live in. In his article it seems that Schwartz’s goal is to capture the attention of as many different audiences as possible by using sarcasm and many different sides to his argument that fat acceptance should be an important value in society.

Most women’s magazine showed 10 times as many as diet food and products as compared to men. In general, research has shown while the promotion of diet food and products increases, the female body ideal sizes from mass media decreases. The media doesn't just adore the thin ideal, they also highlight its importance and significance of the general appearances.
