    '600 Lb Life' to Feature Our Original 'Rock Star'

    Here's the crux of my problem with this whole discussion. Since when are we all so entitled and self-important that we think our "opinions" on someone else's health or happiness need to be voiced? Oh right, since forever. Because that's what people have been doing to fat people since always, and...

    '600 Lb Life' to Feature Our Original 'Rock Star'

    You're the one who suggested I was trying to derail discussion because of its effects on my livelihood. You're the one who accused me of jumping boards. Maybe your paysite-models-should-be-seen-but-not-heard attitude is escaping the attention of others, but it hasn't escaped mine. Your derision...

    '600 Lb Life' to Feature Our Original 'Rock Star'

    Oh my god, someone's actually speaking to me and not around me. I don't know how to act right now. Maybe if we humanized supersize people by actually ASKING them if they feel happy we could spend a lot less time voicing our "opinions" on how happy or healthy they are. Maybe we can comment on...

    '600 Lb Life' to Feature Our Original 'Rock Star'

    These discussions have nothing to do with my livelihood, and jumping boards? I've been a member of this community for over twelve years, and I was a contributor here well before I ever modeled. More importantly, though, I am a supersize woman, and here are a bunch of not-500 and not-600 pound...

    '600 Lb Life' to Feature Our Original 'Rock Star'

    This thread is the most hateful, concern-troll-laden thread in modern memory. Good job all who have contributed. There is no magic benchmark weight threshold between "healthy" and "unhealthy" and it's NOT YOUR BUSINESS ANYWAY. There is no magic benchmark weight threshold between "happy" and...

    Do Ssbbw's ever go for a bigger guy? As in musculature?

    Yes. I mean, like Liz suggested, there would probably be some lifestyle differences that could be difficult to navigate at times, and a lot depends on how much of your life improving your body in this way consumes. It can work, though.

    Selling Some Stuff On Ebay

    Just so you know, there's a really active Facebook group where people sell clothes, too! There are hundreds of people in there and stuff goes pretty fast. I'd be happy to provide details!

    You just have to fake it. It's the Internet. No one who's confident online is actually confident in real life.

    When is a Community not a community?

    She didn't give him her PIN, and I don't think we can place any blame on her just because she used her debit card instead of cash. That's ludicrous. The only mistake she made here was assuming that a friend of a friend wasn't going to fuck her over. The blame lays squarely with the person who...

    Beth (aka Madison Aikers) has passed away.

    Beth was truly the sweetest person I've ever known. She will be so missed. My thoughts are with her closest friends and family.

    Radiolab. I can't express my love for this show enough. This American Life. The Moth.

    oy, it's letters to people and things, part deuce!

    I understand the controversy. My issue is that it's not for us to decide who has been oppressed versus who is just practicing her own beliefs. Women wearing burkas on the street have every right to do so.
