“Obese” “fat” “people living in larger bodies” “people of size”.. Which term do you prefer? #weight #language


@UCalgaryBodyBS How about none of those? Living with obesity sounds better to my ears personally.


Any/all that are neutral & physically descriptive are good w/me. Nope to “obese” “overweight”, they R stigmatizing.


@lisajdubreuil @UCalgaryBodyBS I’d like it to say those that are outside our current narrow cultural norm. Too much to ask?


@UCalgaryBodyBS I prefer “ppl w/obesity” or “ppl w/excess body weight”
