Why do some people believe skinny people are healthy and overweight people are disgusting?

The majority of people may not feel that overweight people are disgusting. There is much evidence that people in a certain weight range (for their gender and height) are healthier. Studies have shown that being exceptionally overweight or underweight is detrimental to one's health. My Mom is overweight due to a thyroid condition. I am skinny. I have more health problems than my Mom does. My Mom only has a thyroid condition and she takes the thyroid pill to help her out. I have high blood pressure and I am a recovering anorexic. I would rather be overweight any day and be healthy. Most research has shown that it is healthier to have a little "meat on your bones", than to be skinny! Overweight people are not disgusting! I think that they are beautiful in every way just like you and me. People believe this because overweight and obese people tend to be more lazy and procrastinate. Of course, there are some overweight people who aren't disgusting and there are some skinny people who are unhealthy. This stereotype is just oversimplified. This varies with culture, social class, history and other factors. Back in earlier centuries woman were portrayed in classic paintings as having 'softer' looks like round faces and plump bodies. But this has obviously changed quite dramatically today, as even the slightest hint of 'fat' is discouraged. You see this in nearly every fashion ad or commercial. In remote areas like Tibet, body size is not an important consideration. Some countries might even find a "skinny" woman to be unhealthy and repulsive, as some in the United States find heavyset women. Any anthropology or sociology text would illustrate this, as would Western fashion trends in the 1900's-1950's.
