No time for a post of substance today, so here are some links to some recent posts in the Fatosphere that I have found really inspiring:
Plus Size Plum asks Are plus size women in vogue?.
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the Fat Hating jerks who say, “If you would just lose some weight, you wouldn’t have all these problems!”
Sandy at Junkfood Science links to an article by Melinda Tankard Reist of Women’s Forum Australia which comments on the results of the Mission Australia study I mentioned in a previous post and the effect of the media on young people.
FatGrrl discusses her experience in a Body Image Group where she was a fat girl amongst significantly smaller women.
Just in case there is someone in the Fatosphere who hasn’t thrown their 2 cents in to this discussion yet, Rachel took on Dan Savage’s recent fatist advice and showed both her extreme patience and excellent moderation skills.
And Kate from Shapely Prose opened her comments to some Blogwhoring, which (ahem) I may have indulged in. Seriously though, I’ve enjoyed following the links to some blogs I had already discovered and some that are new to me. I’ve been adding subscriptions to my Google reader like crazy, and will be updating my blogroll shortly. Go and add some great reads to your roll.
