Size-ism is a discrimination that people that are overweight or obese experience on a regular basis. It is when other people think people that are overweight or obese are lazy or slobs.
Honestly, I have avoided these people in general. But, now I find myself dating someone with these opinions. In fact, he called who I was before "fat and a slob". I obviously called him on that. He kinda detracted it but I think he still feels that way. Ironically, he says he's a slob. My family is still overweight. Will he feel that way about them? He says he won't because he's not dating them. What if I gain weight? Will he break up with me? He says no. I don't plan on gaining the weight but there is always that possibility on the table.
My mom says I will find someone that will love me no matter what size I am. But, will I? I want someone that can understand my before and after. I don't know if this even possible. I want them to live a healthy lifestyle. It's like the only ones that can understand me are people that have lost a good chunk of weight as well.
I am still trying to figure out how I feel about this. The real question is if I can live with dating someone that has discrimination towards overweight or obese people...
