Fat Girls Float is the upcoming documentary by a 300 pound filmmaker, Kira Nerusskaya, that takes the audience on a journey through international fat subculture, giving fat women from four counties an opportunity to have their say. Despite many glares, glances, and gloating from media, family members, medical communities and the public-at-large these fat women tell their tales of sorrow and success, wow and woe. They discuss size discrimination, political activism, fat and size acceptance, and social networking communities. These fat women show how they need to rise above what the world thinks of them and point out their ability to overcome society’s condemnation through compassionate perseverance. In essence, fat girls float because they do not let their weight ‘weigh’ them down.
Want to listen to Linda Bacon and Marilyn Wann hand it to a (seemingly) biased BBC interviewer and a speaker for the American Institute for Cancer Research? Then this is the discussion for you. This radio segment from the BBC is frustrating at first and then very rousing as Wann and Bacon refuse to take the nonsense of the unfounded and poorly constructed conclusions of the research by the American Institute for Cancer Research.
You know how we love our Joy Nash here at More of Me to Love. She’s fun, funny, beautiful, engaging and always speaks the truth. Nash’s delivery is timely and on point, and we’re so grateful for the great Fat Rant videos she makes. This one is about the notion of compulsive eating. Enjoy!
This is a great Fat Rant by Joy Nash that Nicole told us about in the forums. It’s a series of great comebacks and a motivational rant.
Want to learn a little bit about the Fat Acceptance Movement? Well this clip from ABC’s Good Morning America is one of the most startlingly reasonable portrayals of it that I’ve ever seen in the media. At the very least, it’s worth a watch.
