    what do you like best about fat community

    Hiya, it has been a while, but glad to check in and see how things are. Even though I haven't been here, I have still been part of fat community, and am grateful for that community, as scattered as it can often be. What I like best about fat community is the generosity. I have never been...

    Time to Fight Back

    I'm so excited to be part of our community right now. We have an opportunity to get our voices heard and to push back against a seemingly unstoppable social stigma that gets ample time to be heard in the mainstream media and the public arena. How many times have we complained about how nobody...

    "s*@# thin girls say"

    I'm not gonna lie, I think this internet meme would be improved with a fat girl take on "S*@# (fill-in-the-blank) girls say" Pay-site girls, I bet you could do this up right.

    Trans Rights Bill close to passing today in Massachusetts

    As some of you know, my partner lives in MA, and has been working for years to get civil rights legislation passed in Massachusetts for transgender people. After 6 years, the legislation has finally moved out of committee and into the state house for a vote. Last night, the House voted for the...

    Fat Travel Blog

    Thinking about some of the things that have popped up here lately, I was wondering if anyone maintains a blog just on fat and travel? Like, travel narratives of contributors from around the globe, talking about accessibility and things of that nature, or of interactions with locals, and so...

    pizza delivery fee-what is the story?

    so, I just ordered a pizza from a national pizza chain, and their website notes that the 2.00 delivery fee they charge is not a tip for the driver-well then, what is it for (I've also seen language that says the delivery fee does not go to the driver at other pizza places)? I remember back when...

    body powder-do you use? what do you use?

    I am thinking about adding a body powder to my daily grooming rituals, and wanted to know if others use body powders, and what do you use? I've just read in a couple of the recommended threads here in the health forum about creams and powders that folks use for rashes, under folds, and so on...

    Gay Marriage close to passing in Maryland

    According to the Washington Post, looks like Maryland will be the next state to pass a law allowing gay marriage. This would be the first state south of the Mason-Dixon line to allow gay marriage, but then again, Maryland isn't what you would consider a true southern state...

    The Funny Things Thin People Think...

    This may be a very bad idea, but I hope I explain my intent properly. I had this thought on the bus yesterday, when it was really crowded: "Isn't that sweet? That thin person thought there should actually be a lot of room for her to sit down on the bus." The bus was full of people, full...

    Hi all, I have a pair of reading glasses from the late 80's that I would like to turn into sunglasses. Anyone have ideas/suggestions about how to go about this, and the possible cost? Thanks so much!

    2011: what will it hold for you? for us (LGBTQ folks)?

    Hi all, Wondering what you all are thinking about the New Year, and what you hope, want, need, expect to see in the New Year? I don't believe in resolutions, so I'm not making any, but I do expect 2011 to be a wonderful year for me, personally. I am also very hopeful that the work being...

    Emotions and bodily disconnect

    So, I'm pretty close to my three-year anniversary in therapy. It has been incredibly useful for me, and I am very satisfied with the course it has taken. Recently, I had a profound 'a-ha!' moment, and wondered if others could relate. So, here's the story: I saw a video of my partner that I...

    "It Gets Better" for fat kids

    So, I'm running late, getting ready for work, and as I brush my teeth, I'm thinking of Dan Savage's "It Gets Better" youtube video project, where GLTBQ people post videos telling GLBTQ youth that it will get better, to help prevent suicide. I was debating whether I would want to particpate...

    My four year and 5 month anniversary

    Well, I got to wondering how long I've been participating on these boards, and it turns out I registered in March of 2006. Sometimes it is really hard to believe I've been in this community for over 4 years. I used to be much more prolific in the past, and while I don't know if I miss all...

    Confused about why everyone says all fat people get diabetes?

    Seriously, I read this all the time, and the statistics just don't back it up (as well as my own health record). How do people come to believe this when it isn't even close to being true? If you believe this to be true, then why? Why doesn't the statisitcal information back this up? I'm...
