Why is "body shame" related with being overweight? why is not related with things that a person can't control such as height? we know how most women discriminate against short men... even though height is determined by genetics and says nothing about a person's health... Whereas being overweight is usually the result of poor habits regarding diet and excercise.. furthermore, being overweight usually affects a person's health..
