My main point is that a lot of people use "health" as a tool to make the fact that they find fat people "unaestheticly appearing" politically correct, even if they couldn't care less.
I. The reason I choose to use the word "fat" instead of a word like "overweight" is mainly due to the fact that I agree with the body positive community that "fat" should be reclaimed as a neutral
word. But also that the word "overweight" implies that the person weights more than they should
or want to
However you want to define "weighing too much", I consider it an impolite word, and I wouldn't call anyone that, just as I wouldn't call a skinny person "underweight" in everyday talk.
II. If you read this and thinks "It's not true, I really DO CARE and make comments about EVERYBODY'S health, not only fat people", congratulations. You don't fall under the category "hypocrite", but your friends probably find you really annoying. js.Edit:
fixed some unclear and odd wordings. I hope the message gets through better now. Thanks ~ClockworkLyre
