Diversity of opinion

Lindsay has a post up discussing the recent conflicts and power struggles in the fatosphere:

There is one thing that FA blogs have in common across the board: we believe that it is wrong to mistreat someone because they are fat. That’s it.

Diversity of opinion is a large part of what I value in the fatosphere. As I’ve said before:

Fat Acceptance is (clearly!) not monolithic. Nor should it be. We have a range of view points, a range of goals, and a range of ideas on how best to achieve those goals. That’s great. Every little raindrop counts.
