Why do people keep bringing Democrats or Democratic Party into this. Majority of the fat women in the south I’ve seen are republicans and conservatives. The majority of “liberal” women around here are more into fitness and taking care of themselves.
People don't realize just how much everything has become political. Now, it's not on the presidential ticket that Trump hates fat people and Biden will help them. There is a reason behind the "body positivity" movement. You'll find many "victim groups" are defended vigirously by the media. That is to win them over. It's quite effective too. Imagine you are very fat, and are not going to change that. What sounds more appealing? The group that tells you it's gross and you need to fix it? Or the side that says you look amazing and everyone needs to agree? Sadly, too many people fall into this trap and will start to side with them on similar issues.
Thankfully, not everyone does. Just as you know fat women who are Republicans, there are many others who think outside of emotions. It's very hard to break emotional feelings for many.
