Just a quick clarification for those who are not used to seeing fat acceptance in the world.
This is not a blog to make people feel sorry for me. It is not a “poor me, feel sorry for me because I’m fat and people are mean to me” blog.
I will be sharing lots of horror stories. But that is not for sympathy, it’s for the following purposes.
- To share my stories so that other fatties don’t feel so alone.
- To raise awareness of just how deeply ingrained fat phobia is in our culture.
- To draw attention to just how hurtful, nasty and insensitive some people can be, in the hope that it will make others think again before making comments about people’s weight.
I just wanted to clarify that I don’t feel sorry for myself, and the stories that I’m sharing here on this blog are not for sympathy or pity, they’re for spreading a very firm message.
