Ladies and gentlemen, the Ask of The Week.
There’s no evidence of it, it’s just a fucking assumption by fatphobic assholes. You can tell this by the simple fact that they never harass bodybuilders about how bad it is for their bones, even though, say, Dwayne Johnson is much heavier than most fat people.
I seriously suggest you go read up on these things, if you genuinely care. We have links all over this blog to studies and articles in actual journals.
Here’s a study with a sizeable sample indicating that fat has a protective factor for bones in post menopausal women. At least, I’m pretty sure that’s what it says, it can be hard to parse the really technical language in these things.> reads one paragraph of an abstract
> comments on the “technical language” to excuse complete and utter disregard for the point of the article
The article, in very untechnical terms, clearly states that one should not choose between gaining weight and drinking milk. Probably because some inane fat activist would rather eat themselves into a coma than have 3 servings of dairy, in the guise of health, which is further implicated by the fact that women who seemed to have the lowest dairy intake also had higher BMIs.
Of course, it is difficult to parse the really technical language in these things when you read more than a paragraph.
