They’re judgemental and critise everyone they are jealous of or something they find intimidating as they’re insecure themselves - or just because they’re stupid ( either or😂).

skinny shaming isnt okay either, but being skinny is not hated to the same proportion that being fat is. A couple years ago, being skinny was cool, it was even considered beautiful.
Fatness has always been discriminated against in the media

Sadly it isn’t just in media that it’s discriminated against in. The medical system has a certain mindset that being fat Is the worst thing ever and are convinced you have to be skinny. Though body size/weight ≠ being healthy. You can be “fat” for many reasons including as a long term medication side effect. Things like hormonal birth control can increases weight etc. It’s sad that you can go in for like an ear Infection and they’ll try to focus more on weight loss than the actual current issue. Just wish they’d advocate being healthy and healthy lifestyle more than a certain size.

Not true. Your perception of the tolerance of fat people today might just be skewed because of what you see in the media. Fat people are still very much so discriminated against in real life
