Is fat the worst thing you can be?
Recently the gorgeous @alisondresses reminded us of a JK Rowling quote:
“Is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me!”
This was after Rowling went to the British Book Awards. Rowling bumped into a woman she hadn’t seen for nearly three years. The first thing she said to her? ‘You’ve lost a lot of weight since the last time I saw you!’. Rowling recalls thinking ‘Well, the last time you saw me I’d just had a baby.’ And what she felt like saying was, ‘I’ve produced my third child and my sixth novel since I last saw you. Aren’t either of those things more important, more interesting, than my size?!’.
Well we agree with her! In our opinion 'fatness' shouldn't be a conversation:
1 - Its personal. So stop inputting if you aren't asked!
2 - We believe the focus should be health and happiness, and again thats personal! It varies from person to person.
3 - Our bodies are so much more than aesthetic fads to be tortured and manipulated.
What are your thoughts on the topic of fatness? We would love to see your comments!
