This is the same crap in a different package. “oh it’s all well and fine but I still don’t want to be fat”. Nothing about how stigmatization of fat plays a role in the fat acceptance movement or how people with medical problems causing weight gain or swelling play into things. Or hell, even fetishists!
I see nothing but the same thing focusing on appearances. As a fat chick this annoys me. I’m not going to apologize for being fat. If you want to do more stories on fat people then you can do a story on me. I don’t care.

I definitely have to ask if the park in the shot of the woman swinging is Webster Lake. I live right behind there. :)

We were not designed by nature neither to run away from food nor to work when it is not necessary.

I ran two half-marathons during my PhD and I feel that the problem is widespread in all highly educated communities.

Law requires us to cover our bodies but one day it will require us to be fit avoiding a widespread collapse of society since modern life changes our survival capabilities.
