Lizzo: an appalling example for young women |

Headline Health – A social media user on LipstickAlly.com recently posted:

“See the media and world has normalized obesity and larger sizes to accommodate ppls feelings that y’all forget what fat is. Just because the average American is now fat doesn’t mean that the meanings of these words changed. Lizzo is clearly and visibly morbidly obese.”

To which another commenter replied:

“She’s fat and there’s nothing wrong with that.”

Actually, there’s plenty wrong with being that overweight, particularly for those who are black and female:

  • “Those who are morbidly obese are at greater risk for illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gallstones, osteoarthritis, heart disease, and cancer.” – University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY
  • “Obesity is associated with higher rates of death driven by comorbidities …” –  Annals of Translational Medicine
  • “The estimated annual health care costs of obesity-related illness are a staggering $190.2 billion or nearly 21% of annual medical spending in the United States.” – National League of Cities
  • “Overweight and obesity in African-American women increases their risk of death, especially from heart disease, according to a new study.” – WebMD
  • “African American women have the highest rates of being overweight or obese compared to other groups in the U.S. About four out of five African American women are overweight or obese.” – U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Meanwhile, Hollywood and the entertainment media continue to lavish praise on Lizzo as the latest celebrity superstar to be looked up to:

  • TIME magazine named Lizzo “Entertainer of the Year,” gushing:

“Attending a Lizzo concert feels like worshipping at the church of self-love, if your preacher was a pop star living joyfully in a big black body, delivering a sermon of self-acceptance that’s as frank as it is accessible.”

  • The Los Angeles Times headlined:

“Lizzo became the one thing we all loved in 2019”

  • The Houston Chronicle raved:

“Lizzo shows us that body positivity extends beyond the White mold” 

Let’s just be really clear – there no “body positivity” in a 31-year-old woman of normal height tip the scales at 308 pounds. Lizzo is teaching people to lie to themselves about their health, and that’s a very unhealthy thing.
