What your fat friend needs from you.
Your Fat Friend

As with all your pieces, so beautifully done. I see this body shaming transferred even to animals. Years ago I heard a young boy exclaim to his mother over the fatness of a hippo. He did this over and over and I waited for mom to say something like ‘hippos are supposed to be fat’ or ‘that is normal for hippos’ but no, she joined him in chortling with disgust over the ‘fat’ hippo. I wish I had said something.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
