We’re all aware that when it comes to physical appearance, our society is a fucking bully. But I always wanted to know why. Why is our structure this way? Why are fat people bullied, often to the point of suicide? And why are women singled out for body shame? Why have we all learned to hate ourselves? How THE FUCK did we get here?
I’m here to propose something that I believe too few of us realize: “health” is our new “beauty myth.”
Today, everyone seems to say: “Being fat is horrifying, but so is the extreme opposite. It’s important for EVERYONE TO BE HEALTHY!” This, my friends, is a perfect example of how health has become one of our main obsessions.
