Obesity is Unhealthy


Should drawing attention to the fact that obesity is incredibly unhealthy be considered a form of politically incorrect discrimination? Should discouraging people from over eating be discarded as "fat shaming"? Should merely discussing obesity in a negative light be labeled a "hate crime"? Doesn't matter! We don't live in a logical society, we live in a politically correct society. 

The fat acceptance movement preaches body positivity - despite the fact that being fat damages your body. Doesn't matter that obesity is a serious, chronic, life threatening disease. Doesn't matter that obesity causes high blood pressure, diabetes, heart failure, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, some cancers (endometrial, breast, colon, kidney, gallbladder, and liver), body pain, difficulty with physical functioning, clinical depression, anxiety, and death. 

In an effort to combat "patriarchal beauty standards", progressives created a harmful mindset that encourages detrimental health practices. Political correctness is dangerous. It can forbid you from expressing concern for your loved one who is spiraling down the ruinous self destructive path of obesity. It can turn a worried friend into a hateful bigot. It can literally kill you.
