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

The fact that your body doesn’t match our culture’s ideal image doesn’t make you less than enough, so don’t let anyone convince you that it does.
