Woman says the BMI scale is ‘racist’

This year has been absolutely crazy, most will likely be glad to see 2020 go. I mean, there’s no way 2021 could possibly be worse, right?

Needless to say, these are crazy times where most people have a problem grasping reality. Whether it’s people who blame all of their failures on racism or sexism, a man who believes he’s actually a woman or Trump supporters who continue to cling to the erroneous idea that Trump will be president after Jan. 20, 2021, facts don’t care about your feelings or something, right?

Anyway, an oversized woman posted to social media about how people can be better allies to fat people (can we still say “fat”? Isn’t that a micro or more likely, a macro-agression?).

The woman begins her crazy list of demands by stating that BMI, the body mass index scale, is not only inaccurate, it’s racist. Unfortunately, she never elaborates on how a scale created to determine someone’s health harbors feelings of hatred and disgust towards specific races.
