I just want to share with all my lovely Fat Heffalump readers a blog post I wrote over on my "everyday" blog. Tonight I got home from the movies to find some loser had left a comment on my other blog saying something like "Wearing black isn't going to help you any you fat bitch." Only it wasn't spelled correctly, but I can't remember the exact spelling because I deleted it.
So I had a wee bit of fun and made up a post over there that I thought my folks with fattitude might like to read. Here's the link:
I want to clarify something. I am not in this fatty blogging game for some kind of fatosphere political statement, to campaign for action or argue semantics.
I am here to create a positive, empowering place for fatties and friends/family of fatties. I don't give a shit if something is not good fat politics. If it helps one fat heffalump like me hold his or her head high, walk with confidence and self esteem, to no longer feel alone and to get past the pain and self loathing, then that's what I'm here for.
The opinions expressed on this blog are mine, and not of any organisation, movement, business or collective. If you disagree, that's fine, I don't need the world to agree with me. But if you don't like what I have to say, I nor anyone else is holding a gun to your head forcing you to read this.
