are you fucking kidding me? ugh, this is SO ANNOYING. i’m sorry, but do you realize how difficult it is to preform surgeries in the first place? after watching and knowing an orthopedic surgeon, I can assure you that surgery is very labor-intensive, even on thin people. when someone is extremely overweight/obese/morbidly obsese, that is SO MUCH FAT TISSUE THEY HAVE TO CUT THROUGH JUST TO GET TO YOUR ORGANS. the fact that this article says there is fatphobia in medicine is drawn from ignorance because, i hate to let you all know, being obese is a serious medical problem and i think someone who went through 10+ years of schooling to help YOU can complain all they fucking want to.
