Fat Acceptance

Thursday, July 3, 2008Fat Acceptance

Fat is an epidemic, the media and advertisers tell us, while playing random footage of overweight people's midsections. Fat is dangerous! Fat can kill you! Fat people could lose weight easily if they'd just eat less! A growing movement is working to get out different, perhaps startling messages: Fat is okay. Fat is not a moral failing. Even: fat is fabulous. Join us this Thursday to learn more about the fat acceptance movement - its goals, why its important, and what its detractors say.
