On Weight Loss Surgery And The Unbearable Thinness Of Being
Your Fat Friend

I really like your article. As a fat woman, I really appreciate how you support people where they are at, and recognize the huge social pressures faced by those of us who are very fat, and your distinction between “what we want for our own bodies” and “what society says is the ONLY option for our bodies”.

I realize you have no say over what further reading suggestions appear at the bottom of your article, but it was really disconcerting to read an article that made me feel positive about my body, and then be told to read an article on detox smoothies to lose weight.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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