Is it becoming the norm to "fat-shame" people into losing weight?


Private individuals and public personalities such as Kelly Clarkson are subject to "fat-shaming" on a regular basis. Chris Wallace is the latest to discuss Kelly's weight on the radio. Are people bullying her or are they trying to help?

    Excellent point! Lots of women were angry at the "fit mom" too! In fact the slogan: "Real women have curves!" is a dig against women who are fit or thin. Just because a woman is thin doesn't make her any less "real". Every group is attacked.

    There are more fat people today than in history.i don't remember seeing many in my childhood. I'm not sure if people are speaking out of concern(tough love)

    or joining in with the bullying.
