People don’t get type 2 diabetes because of weight. That is a common but not actually legit misconception. A correlation with weight does not mean it is caused by weight jfc
And after all the discussion of this that’s gone on on my blog if you can’t figure out the answer to this question then you need to revamp your reading comprehension skills. I’m not repeating myself again.
So, I’m a fat person with diabetes and let me tell you that anti-fat stigma and the assumption that diabetes is fat disease that can be treated or cured by just being less of a big fatty causes a lot of people with diabetes to absorb bad information which prevents them from managing their conditional successfully. It also sets up fat diabetics with a huge risk of having a lousy relationships with our healthcare providers, which also gets in the way of managing diabetes well.
The smug gotchas of non-diabetic people who want to get one over on fat activism don’t do shit for my health.
i kicked out a large number of teens for a relatively quiet day.
two teens, separately, called me a fat bitch in their loudest voices and another teen let out several barbaric YAWPS while exiting the building.
