On Fat-Shaming and Being Fat
Thank you to Roxane Gay for tackling two big problems: child sexual abuse and feelings about being overweight.
I'm ordering her new book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body.
Here's the Washington Post review of it by Caitlin Gibson.
I want to compare it to Shrill by Lindy West. She defends people's right to be fat and their right not to have people putting them down or giving advice on how to lose weight.
It's hard to be PC on this issue when two and more fat people disagree.
