Why I prefer being called fat not plus-sized – Monalisa Stephen



Monalisa Stephen

Nigerian film actress, Monalisa Stephen has stated that she prefers being called ‘fat’ rather than ‘plus-sized’.

Unlike many others who believe being called fat is offensive, Monalisa has banished the thought of being in such category during an interview with Saturday Beats. In her words:

“I prefer being called fat because that is what I am. Some people find the term ‘fat’ offensive, so they tend to use ‘plus-sized’, ‘fluffy’, or ‘chubby’. But for me, it is what it is; I am fat.

I will expect people to know that I am not angry when I am called fat. Being called plus-sized is not empowering for me. I feel people should be able to live in reality; to know if they are really fat.

If they don’t like the way they are, they should do something about it, instead of getting angry at being called fat. There is nothing wrong with being fat and accepting one’s body.”
