CBS WKBT News Anchor’s On-Air Response to Viewer Fat-Shamingon October 3, 2012 at 1:27 pm
If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s really worth a watch. It delights me to see anyone stand up to fat-shaming, but Jennifer handled it with a lot of class.
Personally, I completely lost my temper at the notion that obesity is a choice. More often than not, there’s a helluv a lot more to it and self esteem can be a pretty big player. Really, how well are you going to take care of yourself if you don’t feel you’re worth it? Frankly, if you could hate yourself slim, I’d have been a size two in my twenties.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a “suitable example to set for young people, girls in particular”, how about a strong, self assured, dignified, intelligent, beautiful woman? She’s right there.
