"Being Mean to Fat People Is Pointless: A Good Old-Fashioned Plea for Civility"
"Shame is stagnation... Bullying is not activism. Hurting is not helping. Cut it out."
Indeed. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I've learned more about self acceptance, self pride and breaking through societal shame more from my fat friends than I ever learned in all my years in the gay community. (Although props to my trans friends - they're pretty fucking awesome, too.)
