health & FATNESS

Fat people have had enough of messages from media, family, workmates, bullies or advertising that ridicule fat as being unattractive, a sign of laziness, ill health, etc. I, and many other fat women revel in our bodies, accepting them as HEALTHY and enjoyable and refuse to accept the body shaming of a $100 billion weight loss industry. Please keep bigotry, stereotyping and tired cliches off this Board. "Health Equals Weight" and "Obesity Epidemic Panic" bullshit myths are not tolerated here.

Plus size woman tells of people's reaction when they see her with her 'normal' sized boyfriend. Boyfriend also tells of his experience of having a plus size girlfriend.

Women spend a third of their life aging, and a third of women’s body is fat. Yet both of these natural facts of womanhood are deemed ‘problems’ that require a ‘fix’. The defining features of women are being cosmetically and digitally altered out of existence. Women’s natural bodies are being treated with hatred. And all this harm is being done under the guise of ‘health and beauty’. For a woman to reclaim her true self under such conditions is nothing short of a miracle!

    Don't we age for all of our life? Where did that number come from?

    technically I guess we dont age as we are growing into adults - I can see the logic in the statement but you'd have to contact Endangered Bodies Australia for the exact data they are using.

How I Stopped Hating My Body - The Nourished Life

I am so happy that female celebrities are starting to call interviewers out.

Body-positive parenting: "My daughter and I had a beach party. I played records and we did the twist in our bikinis. Bellies are awesome!" by The Jaded Neighbor

Lying Liars — Why is it that when someone successfully loses weight, they're hailed as having "unlocked the secret." But when someone else fails to lose weight, they're either liars or incapable of following instructions?

Here's the thing. There are no beauty requirements for public beaches. You put on a suit, you go. You have fun. You don't have to graduate Hotness University in everyone else's eyes to qualify for a fun day at the beach.

    I have a son and have never thought to teach him to use his body as a tool to master his environment. I wonder what this means. I guess this is "a thing" parents do?

    I guess there are many interpretations for the little boys statement. And then there are those who do not focus on the sex of the child at all :)
