Is it okay to call someone fat?

Justin Kaufmann and journalist Lisa White

Writer and editor Lisa White  joins Justin on Extension 720 to discuss body positivity and how everyone can be more mindful and kind to all bodies. Lisa talks about her experience being fat-shamed, why fat acceptance is still considered to be a radical thought for many people, if the culture is changing towards the treatment of overweight people, if it is okay to call someone “fat,” the need for body positivity and fat acceptance and why it is important for people to share their stories of being mistreated because of their weight.
