But it’s trying.
My name is Lisa. I have been following your blog from quite some time now and thoroughly enjoy every post of yours.
Well, after reading through your blog, I think you would be interested in having a look at our recently launched infographic “America’s Battle With Obesity”([link to typical FEAR The Obesity Epidemic Because We Said So FEAR Booga Booga removed – Ed]). If you find it helpful, then please consider it for sharing with your readers.
Thanks, and I hope to hear from you soon!
I really don’t see how anyone who’s read my blog would think that graphic would be of any interest to the my readers.
In other goings-on, NPR reports “Hating On Fat People Just Makes Them Fatter”. Of course they still do, as this eloquent tumblr post from The Mighty If points out.
Marianne Kirby wrote about working in plus-size retail in college, and how huge being able to buy clothing can be. This is even harder for supersize or extended-size people. I usually shop online because my brick-and-mortar store options are so limited.
[S]o many fat people lacked any experience of being treated with dignity and respect in a retail setting. It wasn’t just me. And if it wasn’t just me, then maybe I didn’t deserve to be mocked and harassed and made fun off. Maybe I didn’t deserve to be treated badly just because of my body.
And neither did anyone else.
And yet the lack of respect for fat people is constant.
