"Shaming someone for their own good doesn’t work – if it did, we’d all be thin, y’all! But we aren’t! And it isn’t because dieting has never occurred to us before. It’s because diets don’t work – and people end up gaining weight every time their diets fail. This is not a failure of people – this is a failure of our social expectations. If people were as convinced they could fly as they are that people can lose weight just by willing it hard enough, we’d have a lot of unfortunate accidents."
