Obesity Has Been Categorized As A Disease For Way, Way Longer than Anyone Acknowledges
“Obviously obesity is a complex topic. Despite extensive research, the causes for this disease are not well understood and good treatment options remain elusive. As Dr. George Bray, a distinguished obesity researcher, once said, “Obesity isn’t rocket science, it’s much more complicated.”13”
This article says that the
American Medical Association (AMA, not
Ask me anything—)
Voted on it in 2013
And then the article proceeds to explain
That it has been discussed
As a disease
By doctors in the field
Since the 1600’s and yet

Laugh, and insist

Perpetuated by the obesity epidemic
Is that obesity is
A new problem.
It’s not new, it’s ancient.
It’s just becoming more prevalent
Now that we have even fewer environmental means
To manage it. chief of which
In my opinion
Is a hateful, bigoted, shame-riddled, contempt-high general public
Doped out on Michelle Obama’s arms
Hell bent on fixing
Every fat body
Every fat perspective
Every fat person they come in contact with.
