Damn.

I love this so much

We are also one of three nations without paid maternity leave, and the only developed (“first world”) country without maternity leave.

We are the only Western country without universal healthcare.

It costs more to have a child in the US than in any other country.

In many countries you don’t have to pay for college, and if students do pay, it’s nowhere near the amounts that the US students pay.

I could continue, but I think I’ve made my point.

Obsessively trying to eat strictly healthy food and micromanaging all your meals is NOT healthy. Being absolutely terrified of certain foods because they are not 100% “clean” is NOT healthy. Feeling bad for enjoying food, regardless of its nutritional value, is NOT HEALTHY.

The reason these people do not want to see a fat body in a bikini is because traditionally, that garment is something a woman earns by proving herself attractive enough to exist. If fat women begin wearing them without shame or fear, what’s next? Will they have self-esteem? Will they demand respect? Then what will keep them in their proper place? How would conventionally attractive people judge them?

As a society, we need to be more honest in our discussions of other’s bodies. If we can’t avoid those totally unnecessary conversations, then we should at least admit the truth to ourselves: That this has nothing to do with health, and everything to do with the control we believe is our right to exert over others.
