TA calls for more ‘size acceptance’ on campus

A University of Akron Teaching Assistant recently called for more “size acceptance” in college curricula, saying “health promotion materials” are harmful.

In a recent academic article, Teaching Assistant and fat-studies scholar Corey Stevens criticizes colleges for offering “health promotion” programs and flyers, arguing that such materials perpetuate “anti-obesity rhetoric” that could hurt the “body image and self-esteem” of overweight students.
