It perpetuates this damaging, condescending fantasy that some (SOME!) thin people love—the idea that they’re thin because they worked hard, because they’re somehow better than other people. “Well, fat people just need to get up and run. If fat people just worked hard, they could become as thin as me! They could achieve greatness! LIKE ME.” No. It is more complicated than that. Some thin people work hard to be thin. But many don’t. Lots of fat people work hard to lose weight, but fail. Many fat people go running. Many thin people don’t.
