Fat acceptance movement
Women’s media is one of the worst offenders when it comes to making women feel terrible about themselves, and it often does so under a veneer of empowerment.
I'm pretty damn fat and unabashedly so. I eat well enough, I shop at our local food co-op and I own a juicer. I'm constantly on my feet at work, attending intensive African Dance classes (which I'm really f*cking great at), riding bicycles and having a sh*t ton of sex.
The new PBS documentary "All Of Me" features a group of obese women who met via the fat acceptance movement. But as they aged and faced health problems, they chose to undergo surgery. They join us to share their story and the complexities of obesity.
