Time to Love ~ Fat Acceptance
I was reading an article by Peggy Howell from NAAFA (National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance) about fat bullying. It really bothers me that judgments are made by one’s weight. I have been plus size all my life. I have never gone below size 14. For a stranger to ask if I have gained or lost weight recently is not acceptable. Peggy writes:
Today, total strangers feel entitled to remark on our bodies, our diets, and our personal choices. It is time we stand up to these people and set boundaries. It is not okay for anyone to make unsolicited remarks about another’s body.
I would never ask someone how many cigarettes they smoked today or how many glasses of wine they consumed last night. I consider that being a bully.We are on our on journey. I once read, “If you have time to judge someone then you do not have time to love.” — Mother Theresa
