On Friday night I attended a class called "Fat, the First Lady, and Fighting the Politics of Health Science" with Dr. Bianca Wilson. One of Dr. Wilson's points was about mixed messages from Michelle Obama and Surgeon General Regina Benjamin regarding the Health at Every Size and the "obesity epidemic". Dr. Benjamin who has been attacked due to her size, released a video which started off with the OBESITY KILLS message ended with a positive HAES message. Let's Move also has a mixed messages. (I say even more mixed than Dr. Benjamin.)
The fact is Let's Move's campaign associates health=weight allowing Mrs. Obama to open herself up to criticisms from right wing pundit Rush Limbaugh that she doesn't practice what she preaches because she, dare I say it, ate ribs. The left on the other hand defended her not by saying eating well doesn't mean every single food that goes in your mouth has to be "Healthy" (The majority of it should) but by defending the ribs as being lower calories. They also attacked Mr. Limbaugh's weight. (BTW Limbaugh made fun of Michelle Obama's weight as not being "supermodel").
So essentially all we get is two sides using fat as a method to insult each other.
