Watch: Plus Size Model Upset that Doctor Suggested Losing Weight
Alexandra Thomas is a plus size blogger. But she's so much more than that; she's also a sensitive whiner. She was so traumatized by a dermatologist suggesting another doctor could help with her weight, she ran to her iPhone to let everyone know.
I normally don't sweat videos like this. The same way a plus size model might sweat having to walk up stairs. It's a new thing on the left to celebrate unhealthy behavior (see Princeton to Hold a ‘Fat Positivity’ Dinner for Obese Students… and Government Blows Tax Dollars on Study to Promote Fat Acceptance). But I don't live her life.
Plus there's a size 16 hole where context should be. A dermatologist making unsolicited comments on someone's weight seems a tad odd. But the story is getting national attention, with reporters accusing the doctor of "fat shaming."
Are we really at a point where it's fat-shaming for a doctor to suggest to a fat person, "you might want to drop a few pounds?" Because like I said, there's a lot of missing context. For instance, mayhaps being overweight could be a cause for whatever sent Thomas to the dermatologist in the first place. That's not fat-shaming. That's you have a problem with X, Y might be causing it, so do something about Y and it could fix X.
I wasn't in the room. I don't know what was discussed. But it's alarming how fast society jumps to blaming a doctor for expressing concern about a patients weight. Just because that person decided to cry on YouTube.
Fat isn't healthy. Doctors have a vested interest in health. It's not rocket science.
