I just read your post and I posted a link on myt Facebook page. I mentioned that there was one phrase that really got to the heart of the matter:
“a s a culture, we only know how to blame fat people. We do not know how to love fat people.”
I am fat, and there are different reasons I am, but that is neither here nor there. I AM A HUMAN BEING!!! I have feelings, and can be hurt. I am getting better about standing up for myself, but it is hard and scary.
Thank you for this post.
