At a campaign rally this week, Hillary Clinton was asked by a supporter how she’d respond to prolific ‘body shaming’ taking place among young girls across the United States.
“At my school, body image is a really big issue for girls my age,” began the young female Clinton supporter. “I see with my own eyes the damage Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look.”
Clinton responded by stating that Donald Trump has escalated his ‘war on women’ to a ‘new level of difficulty and meanness.’
Across the Western world, the so called ‘body positivity’ movement has sought to redefine what ‘fatness’ is by claiming that one can be both ‘beautiful’ and ‘healthy’ at any weight and size.
What the body positivity movement does not grasp is that being fat is severely detrimental to one’s health and can lead to cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure and stroke.
The young Clinton supporter who asked the question was by no means fat herself. She is though unfortunately a tragic case of one who’s been brainwashed into accepting that aesthetic beauty is a ‘subjective experience’.
