Hey Phat Queers!
I’d like to interrupt my regularly scheduled programming to tell you about my friend Karen’s blog about fat phobia: phatally.blogspot.com. Her thoughts and explorations have raised my consciousness around all the ways in which our society stigmatizes fat. And it’s gotten me thinking more about how important it is for us to celebrate our bodies, rather than degrade them. She even addressed androgyny in this post! I’m her anonymous friend :) Regardless of your size, I think you’d love her blog. To quote her, “Stigmatizing fat hurts every one, regardless of what their body looks like.”
In honor of Karen’s efforts — and all my readers — I want to shout out a special invitation to all curvy/big/fat/plus sized folks to SUBMIT photos of some fabulous outfits! Can’t wait to see all of your lovely selves.
