If you know it’s a fallacy, why even include it? Putting it in the post like that makes it seem like you think that would be a problem if you were overweight. Why even give attention or credence to those myths? As a fat woman, it makes me feel like you’re saying “yes, I know if I was fat that would be a reason, but I’m not, so it’s not.”
