The NAAFA (National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance), yes, that is the actual name of an actual group, said that Gabourey Sidibe’s weight is not an unhealthy thing.
According to a spokeswoman for NAAFA, being heavy doesn’t always mean being unhealthy. Peggy Howell tells TMZ.com, “You cannot tell by looking at a person if they are healthy. Fat does not equal disease and thin does not equal healthy.”
Fat may not equal disease, but it is an unhealthy killer. Gabourey is estimated at 350 pounds. The strain on her heart alone must be enormous! I also concede that thin doesn’t equal healthy, ask a meth user. but thin is one less risk factor than fat.
How can any group advocate that morbid obesity isn’t called “MORBID” obesity for a reason? Bet they run out of donuts a lot at these NAAFA meetings.
