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.

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!
