Fat Stigma

No matter the size, fat or plus size models don't automatically equal sick or unhealthy anymore than stick thin models equal anorexia... we're all different sizes... all sizes of people have disease.
To specifically stigmatize and say fat individuals negatively influence us or specifically corrolate to disease is also a privileged view because much of the rise of "obesity" in the first world is linked to poverty, systemic racism, and the growing number of food deserts in urban areas.
