One of my posts has been included in the Big Fat Carnival! So go check it out, lots of superb fat writing, which I am only beginning to plow through. I am honored to be among such excellent company. If you are new to This Ain’t Livin’, and looking for more of my thoughts on fat rights, here’s another post from the archives you might enjoy.
The Big Fat Carnival is a carnival for collecting some of the best blog posts regarding fat pride; fat acceptance; critiques of anti-fat bigotry, attitudes and research; celebration of images of fat people; practical difficulties of being fat; fat love (queer and otherwise); feminist views of fat and fat acceptance; the health at every size movement (HAES); and whatever else each edition’s editor feels fits into the theme.
(But please note, The Big Fat Carnival is not a place to advocate weight-loss diets, weight loss surgery (WLS), or feederism.)
I will be hosting the Carnival on April 4th (but please don’t send me submissions just yet because I will probably lose them and then I will feel bad–I will issue an open call for submissions a little closer to the 4th).
