Fat acceptance: A basic primer Critique essay Cynara Geissler’s article “Fat Acceptance: A Basic Primer” was first published in Geez Magazine in 2013. Geissler addresses a lot of issues about fat acceptance and how it is affecting our society and people’s attitudes towards over-weight people.

At first, Britt seems angry at thin people. She makes snide comments about their life choices. She thinks they don’t know how to have fun or just relax.

Her logic goes like this, “The main problem with thin people is they oppress,” (10) comparably, “fat people are convivial.” (12) Britt uses her life experience with her ‘thin’ friends and how they make her feel.

The tone is in informative because Hellmich gives different types of sources and statistics which make it informative so its approach would be directed towards inquisitive people who want to learn more about too much added sugar. In order to state that added sugars are detrimental to health, Hellmich delineates how too much added sugar in a diet is slowly killing users of it. For example, “...including obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and risk factors for heart disease and stroke”. Hellmich is effective in displaying how added sugar can be very unhealthy and may cause death (if over consumed) because Hellmich has lots of details, quotes, studies that were performed, and two perspectives from different associations.

Meaning that yes it is our body but at the same time, it isn’t because it's controversial to what our body should look like.

Whether it was too much dominance like in “The Yellow Wallpaper” and “Trifles” or not enough, like in “A Sorrowful Woman”. It was too hard on the women which caused them to react harshly. The husband 's method of overly controlling their sick wives doesn’t work because treating women like property doesn’t make them feel good.
