We have so successfully made fatness into the scariest of the scary, our children are developing eating disorders (and in many cases are encouraged to do so) before they even hit puberty.

Parents are lauded for forcing their pre-pubescent children to diet, in spite of the very real future health risks.

This is the same society who looks down their nose at tribal body modifications that still exist in the world. This is the same society who is grossed out by a child being too “Grown” but will pat their parent on the back for changing their body before their body has even started to become what it will eventually be.

If you can’t see why that is awful and insane, you are part of the problem.

I blogged about the failure of health, fitness and beauty as morality. TW for mentions of eating disorders, medicalĀ malfeasanceĀ and fuckery.
