🗽NYC Levels Up 📏📊: No More Discrimination Based on Size, Says ‘Size Doesn’t Matter!’ 💪🙌
TL;DR: Hold up, New York City just made a power move! 🔥 Mayor Eric Adams put pen to paper 🖋️ on legislation banning discrimination based on body size. That means your height 📏 and weight 📊 now join the ranks of protected categories, like race, sex, and religion. 🙌 Mayor says: “Same rights for everyone, regardless of appearance!” 🏙️
So, is size truly just a number in the Big Apple now? 🍏 And what does this mean for the rest of the country? 🇺🇸 Let’s dive in. 🏊♀️
New York City, famous for its towering skyscrapers 🏙️ and thin crust pizzas 🍕, is now making headlines for a different kind of size matter. On May 26, 2023, Mayor Eric Adams inked 🖋️ a new law that will forbid discrimination based on body size, adding weight and height to the lineup of protected categories like race, sex, and religion.
“We all deserve the same access to employment, housing and public accommodation, regardless of our appearance, and it shouldn’t matter how tall you are or how much you weigh,” stated the mayor in a firm stand against body discrimination. So, is it safe to say that size discrimination is going out of fashion quicker than cargo shorts in the 2000s? 🩳🚫
Mayor Adams, a Democrat, who reversed his diabetes with a plant-based diet and even penned a book 📖 about it, stood side by side with elected officials and fat-acceptance advocates at the City Hall bill-signing ceremony. But why stop there? Shouldn’t ‘fat-acceptance’ be ‘size-acceptance’? 🤔
With this newly signed legislation, it’s crystal clear that the Big Apple is taking a firm stand against body shaming and opening up a conversation about size acceptance that could change the social landscape. This opens the question: is New York City setting a precedent that other cities, or even the country as a whole, should follow? 🌎
Remember, while this is a big step towards equality, it’s not an endorsement or recommendation from us at Turnt Up News. It’s about informing you of the world as it turns (and in this case, how it sizes up). We’re not about giving advice, we’re about starting conversations.
But let’s really think about it, folks. New York City is known for setting trends, and this could be a massive one. Could this new law cause a ripple effect that sees other cities implementing similar laws? Could we be seeing the beginning of a new era where ‘size doesn’t matter’ is not just a cliché, but a legally supported principle? 📜
Let’s end on a thought-provoking note. If New York City is championing size acceptance, what’s the next step? What else needs to be protected? And what can we, as a society, do to ensure that all forms of discrimination are recognized and challenged? 🤷♀️🌍 Let’s talk about it! 🔊
