I will admit it, I say the F word. Not the F words that you’re thinking about right now but a word that is probably just as ‘wrong’ to use. That word is fat. It has become an insult to mean the opposite of attractive. It’s a word that no one wants to be associated with.
But that needs to change!
Here’s the thing; fat is not a bad word. It’s not an insult. Let’s all just say that louder for the people at the back.
FAT IS NOT A BAD WORD OR AN INSULT!
Some people a tall, some people are short, some people are fat and some people are thin. You don’t see people using tall or small as an insult so why use fat or thin?!
Society has done a great disservice to all of us all by teaching us that fatness implies inferiority. Thanks to the media, nasty and naive people turning the word fat from a neutral adjective into a shameful insult, so many perfect people face unnecessary low self-esteem and low self-confidence. Society has trained people to believe that only thin people can be beautiful and that is just not true at all. Whether you’re ft or thin, you are beautiful.
Criticizing people for how they look or what they weigh is not okay and it’s also not okay to criticize ourselves for stomachs that aren’t flat enough, thighs that aren’t thin enough or arms that aren’t toned enough. THAT kind of fat talk definitely needs to go.
Fat as a noun is fine, it’s when it’s used as an insult that things get nasty.
Fat is not a word to be scared of!
One more thing, Fat jokes aren’t funny. End of.
