Fat is just a description. Its not a prescription - and its certainly not an invitation for hate, for exclusion, for ridicule, for assaults against my body. And it sure as heck ain’t an excuse to make judgments about my health or my morality. — Jill Andrew

Check out this amaaazing TED Talk by Jill Andrew (who we’ve had the pleasure to get to know through our Fat’s How We Roll peer group!)!! Jill breaks down some of the ways fat bodies - especially black bodies - are impacted by discourses of fatphobia & health. 

*TW for discussion of fatphobia, self-hate and some ableist language.

Hello! I love your blog, I have a friend who is a proud fat boi and he is trying to find affordable clothes in his size that are fashionable. He is a pants size 42 and doesn’t have a ton of money. Any advice for stores (online or in person) that are affordable would be great! Thanks!

tuuubesmcgraw asked: hi there! I am living in toronto and would be super interested in attending the meetings mentioned on your blog at U of T regarding fatphobia, fat politics and fatness in general. I was just wondering if they were open to the public or just students at U of T (I am a student at centennial college). Thanks and cheers! Alison
