(Besides they didn’t just hold hands. Park touched her hands like they were something rare and precious, like her fingers were intimately connected to the rest of her body.

The belief that everyone would be ‘naturally thin’ if they didn’t ‘overeat’ is definitely supported by multiple economic actors who benefit from it: the diet foods industry (like Healthy Choice, owned by ConAgra), the diet medications industries (both pharmaceutical and ‘supplement’ companies), surgeons (who perform bariatric surgeries), plastic surgeons (who perform liposuction and lipidectomies), weight loss clinics and support programs (like Weight Watchers), and gyms. But I think that the major reason people don’t know about the junkiness of weight loss ‘science’ is that across our entire society, people have invested deeply in the ideology that thinness is a moral virtue. We stigmatize being fat so strongly that fat acceptance is seen as ‘immoral.’ And few people want to consider that they have been oppressing their family members, friends, or themselves… — Dr. Cary Gabriel Costello (via lovethyfatness)
