To everybody who’s followed a ping-back from the weight loss feed, welcome. However, this is not the blog you are seeking.
My blog is about being fat and being fine with who and what I am. My blog discusses things that will most likely be antithetical with the feed that pinged you back here. It discusses universal issues of fat-phobia, Health At Every Size (HAES), Fat Activism (FA), as well as more personal issues like why I’m afraid to go to a new doctor and can I trust this new doctor isn’t going to be lazy and just diagnose me “fat” when there are real things that are wrong with me.
In this blog I will also rant, at times, about how correlations (IE, people who are obese sometimes also have conditions such as high blood pressure and etc) are not causations (IE, being fat will not GIVE me diabetes, I’m actually at no higher risk for diabetes than anybody else who doesn’t have genetic factors is, actually). I will rant on how the fat-phobia is taking society to extreme positions (IE, taking children away from perfectly loving homes just because the children are overweight, and calling their parents “abusers” when there are children who are really being abused who are not getting rescued out of their situation because the system is already overloaded). I will rant on how so-called experts slant things in ways they want and how news media, in this time of sound bites, don’t do the research they once might have (IE, the so-called experts who said global warming was all fat people’s fault were really statisticians who did mental masturbation with numbers that they pulled out of the air).
So, I’m afraid that the search engine looking for key words failed you this time.
Unless, that is, you are finally ready to get off the diet cycle and accept yourself for who you are. Then please, come into my parlor, and lets have some good conversation.
