Apparently this bears repeating*: No person is
under any obligation to be attractive or healthy. Obviously being
healthy or trying to attain a certain level of health has benefits, but
noone's obligated to do so. There's more to being on this earth than
being seen as fuckable by others and/or being able to jog around the
block, and never forget that so much of our health is really a roll of the dice, genetically and otherwise.
HAES is the notion that anyone at any size CAN BE healthy, not that they should be.
