FYI: Things to read & do

One of video links going around Facebook of Jennifer Livingston linked to The Fat Nutritionist site for more information on fat acceptance. Michelle is handling the sudden influx with her usual grace, but if you want to help her cope with the many comments (or, y’know, just have some busy threads to watch) you might want to head over. :)

Charlotte Cooper has a thoughtful post about the common experience of being criticized when being fat out-of-doors.

LoveLiveGrow has a nice FA 101 post. (I ran across it when I was looking to see if Stef still had the alt.support.big-folks FAQs online in one of my “yes I have proof fat acceptance predates the web” moments. ;)

Oh! In non-FA, the ebook of Feed  (Kindle Edition) is $1.99 for the month of October.  Feed is by Mira Grant aka Seanan McGuire and it’s the best political zombie thriller about bloggers I’ve read.  And I don’t even like zombies all that much! :)

    Thanks for linking to me. I’ve been reading you a long time… hi! :-) I’ve been following along with the comments on Michelle’s posts. I haven’t had the time or spoons to wade in, but I’ve enjoyed reading along. The Jennifer Livingston video brings an interesting level of attention to the fat acceptance world.

    Oh heck it even predates the Internet. (Shadows on a Tightrope, 1983.)

      NAAFA was founded in 1969. ;)

    Thanks! I went over to Michelle’s after seeing this to smack down some anti-FA people. (They’d already been kinda pre-smacked, though.)
