MAN SAID “THE DEFINITION OF FAT IS WHEN A WOMAN’S ARM IS THICKER THAN HIS LEGS”

I was scrolling through my Twitter feed recently when I came across a post that really disturbed me.

The post was a tweet from a man who said, “The definition of fat is when a woman’s arm is thicker than his legs.” I couldn’t believe what I was reading.

For starters, this statement is completely false—there is no scientific basis for this statement. But even more than that, it’s an incredibly damaging statement to make.

It implies that a woman’s worth is dependent on her body size, and perpetuates the idea that there is one ideal body size that all women should strive for.

This is simply not true.

As a woman, this statement made me feel uncomfortable and disrespected. It’s not okay to make assumptions about someone’s body size, and it’s not okay to make assumptions about their worth based on that size. Women come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s no one-size-fits-all definition of beauty.

The reality is that body shaming is a real problem. It’s pervasive in our culture, and it affects both men and women. It’s incredibly damaging to be judged and shamed for something that you have no control over. Women are constantly bombarded with unrealistic messages about beauty, which can lead to low self-esteem and poor body image.

It’s time to start talking about body positivity and to start celebrating the diversity of body shapes and sizes. We need to recognize that everyone is beautiful and valuable regardless of their size. We need to stop perpetuating the idea that there is one ideal body size, and instead embrace and celebrate the beauty and power of all bodies.

It’s also important to remember that body size is not indicative of health. Just because someone is “fat” doesn’t mean that they are unhealthy, and just because someone is “skinny” doesn’t mean that they are healthy. Health is much more complex than that.

It’s time to start having honest conversations about body size and health. We need to start talking about body positivity, and we need to stop perpetuating the idea that there is one ideal body size. Our bodies are unique and we should celebrate them for that.
