It does seem to be the case that dislike of fat bodies is becoming non PC...It is why I'm expecting the word obesephobe to be in the Oxford dictionary in the next few years...tragic.
Let's face it, all of us have a natural instinct to want to mate with healthy people and a good majority will steer clear of obese people for the same reason we steer clear of people that are clearly psychologically unstable. It's natural to want your partner to be healthy and it's wrong to make people feel bad because they're following their biological instincts.
I don't even like looking at fat people, let alone ever date one. I workout regularly, and don't think of junk food as a staple in my diet.
So should we just be attracted to everyone because "they're people too" and "they have feelings".
So.. Question is, could it be more about the lack of self moderation and control being fat by bad behavior represents than the specific end result?
