The basic story is that a University's Facebook page posted a picture of a very thin woman in a bikini, and asked: healthy or not? Instead of starting a debate, it started a wave of outrage.
I asked a friend about this, and she told me it's offensive because "some old man [the guy running the page] thinks he can judge health by looking at a woman's body, or that this body was somehow a social issue." I can see how this is offensive in a small-scale way, but I am kinda confused by how this became such a big, newsworthy story.
Maybe I'm not understanding exactly what is so bad, due to sexism/a deficit in empathy. If so, could someone correct that and break it down for me?
Here's the FB post:
Edit: Because they're a University? That must be it. It's an official page of an institution that is supposed to promote critical thinking. That's my best guess.
