One word doesn’t define you.
Your weight matters – and so do your thoughts and feelings while managing it. We believe every individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Fat-shaming is one of the last socially acceptable forms of bias, and through the Ban the F Word movement we are taking a stand to say it’s time to end the shame. People are more than a word, and in recognition of this, it’s time to start seeing the person, and not the word “fat.”
As the leading National non-profit standing-up for individuals affected by excess weight or obesity, the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), is committed to our vision of a world free of fat-shaming and weight bias. Whether it’s at school, the workplace, or even the doctor’s office, we want to ensure that everyone is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
