Dances With Fat

image Health comes in all shapes and sizes - including mine. Join me as I debunk the misinformation about the unhealthiness of fat and the stereotypes about fat people. Stand up with me as I push back against a culture that has sidelined my body and disenfranchised me for inhabiting it. Let's work together to bring an end to discrimination - in whatever forms it rears its head. This work is syndicated here with permission and can be found at Dances With Fat.

Enough, Seriously
