How to love a fat person.
Your Fat Friend

This is beautiful and empowering. On a culture that is tilting toward humor and entertainment at the expense of others, fat-shaming is the easiest way to get giggles. As a fat child (once a fat child, always a fat child) who has grown to be a seldom-fat woman, my weight will always be a defining factor for me. However, in rejecting those fat jokes and telling people that I will not acquiesce at their lame attempt at humor at my expense, I am trying to learn to love myself too. Thank you for sharing.
