REPOST – FEMINISM 101: WHAT IS FATPHOBIA?
Why is the Fat Acceptance Movement (FAM), which is defined as the social movement seeking to change anti-fat bias in social attitudes, such a controversial topic?
The answer lies in a society that is largely fatphobic. Fatphobia (the fear and/or hatred of fat bodies) perpetuates negative stereotypes that extend discrimination against the majority of bodies within the United States.
