And people are going to be fat, or not fat, irrespective of your judgment about fat people. Letting go of fat hatred won’t change anything—except, of course, to make the world a little bit better a place for its fat inhabitants.
It can be a hatred that’s hard to let go of, even for fat people, because letting go of that hatred, and replacing it with acceptance, can feel akin to giving fat people permission to be fat.
But being in the position of feeling like permission is yours to give is a manifestation of privilege. And maybe it’s all right to let that privilege go.
