    Sensitive terminology

    I tend to use the word "fat" unless I know for a fact that some otherwise body-positive individual is touchy about it. My reasoning is as follows: The O-words are inherently insulting. "Overweight," as mentioned above, implies that something is "wrong" with you; "obese" is a presumption on...

    Weight of the nation (HBO)

    I've seen part of it, for the purpose of critique. And from what I've seen so far, this review is fairly accurate: Not enough focus on the food industry; way too much body-shaming in the name of "concern." Also, I couldn't help but roll my eyes at the claim that BMI was about "body fat...

    Britain's fattest teenager regains 16st (224lbs) in 16 months...

    After reading the article over at HuffPo, I'm going to have to agree with pretty much all of this.

    BHM Xander - by Undine (~BHM, Intrigue, ~~WG)

    ...okay, there was a rather obvious clue that I should have caught. :doh:

    BHM Cravats and Coat Tails - by Xyantha (~BHM, ~~WG, Romance)

    Gonna have to second Atwolfe: take all the time you need. Some things are more important than stories, and this is one.

    BHM Xander - by Undine (~BHM, Intrigue, ~~WG)

    Bringing this one over here now, then? Awesome! :D (I've so figured something out re: one of the later chapters, by the way...)

    Official Crowning Moment of Awesome. Just saying.

    What kind of Weight Gain Stories do you like?

    Going to have to agree with this. And for the record: I like the idea of the lifetime dieter saying "to hell with that," gaining weight as a result, coming to terms with it, and being happier in the end. It just works somehow.

    Britain's fattest teenager regains 16st (224lbs) in 16 months...

    What I have to say has already pretty much been covered here. But here goes, anyway: There are all sorts of cries for help here that don't seem to be getting heeded. Yes, the fact that she's overeating is an issue, but it's only one issue among many and shouldn't be the sole focus.

    Toxic Fat

    Hasn't this been known for a while now? Even so, it's good that the information may be getting out there a bit more.

    BHM His Kitten - by SlightlyMorbid (~BHM, Romance)

    ....ewwwwww, Martin is such a scuz.

    BHM Anna's Friend - by Starling (~BHM (Multiple), ~FFA (multiple), Romance)

    All of your characters are so...well, imperfect and flawed and human. I approve.

    BOTH "525" - by agouderia (SSBHM, ~XWG, ~BBW, Dining)

    Okay, I won't say that I didn't see that twist coming...but I didn't see it as early as I probably should have. :doh:

    Okay, now I'm all the more intrigued. Look what you've gone and done. ;)
