I feel shitty that that's ever happened to any of you, here or in real life, and fervently wish it hadn't, but I hope no one loses sight of the fact that there are many, many (in fact, I would venture to say the majority of) supersized women (again, like myself) who have never been anything but supportive and welcoming of our smaller friends. I hate that the negative in life always seems to get more press than the positive.
Carrie, the good thing about this board is that we can all be here to learn from each other. Sometimes that will mean hearing things that make us a little uncomfortable but that's okay. If something makes us uncomfortable it means we're really thinking about it. To my mind that's a good thing.
