I have been following (and been commenting on) the recent discussions in the Fatosphere about “good fatties” and “bad fatties”. Surprisingly and sadly, it has been a rather divisive and explosive topic with misunderstandings abounding on all “sides”.
I’m not sure why this state of affairs should be, really, since we are all on the same team regardless of our views on this particular matter. Surely constructive discussion about what Fat Activism’s goals are and how best to achieve them is to be encouraged?
Anyway, Life’s been very full on recently, keeping me very busy and without the energy to compose a decent blog post about this or anything else. But when I have more time I intend to post more about this in future.
