Fat and Doctors over at Feministe

Kactus at Feministe has blogged about her trepidation about going to see her doctor.

I’ve spent the last few days in a state of increasing agitation over the prospect of seeing my new doctor. You know how it is when you are fat, female, and (past) 40–the doc is very often Not Your Friend.

Fortunately, her experience was a positive one.

However in the comments a medical student and medical school professor have asked how people would like to be treated by their doctors:

As a med student, I’m really interested in what people like and don’t like in their doctors.

Lets say your doing something that’s unhealthy (say… smoking a pack a day)… would you want your doctor to try and give you options to quit? Would you prefer he kept his distance?

I’ve posted my 2 cents in the comments, but…

It sounds like a job for the Fatosphere!

Proof I am a geek

Behold:

The Oscar Wilde Action Figure

Oscar Wilde Action Figure

It could only be improved if it recited an endless supply of witty and pithy Oscar quotes.

(Having said that, is it me, or have they trimmed Mr Wilde’s substantial physique down somewhat? Perhaps to suit modern aesthetics, perhaps to fit a standard action figure mould?)

It features in the Top 10 Geeky Holiday Gifts For Your Oddball Child, and comes to us via Orodemniades at Birch and Maple
