    Fat Admiration and Codependence

    every woman of every size needs to be careful to keep ownership of her identity. it would be very easy to fall into that trap dug for women no matter what their size is to get their identity from everywhere else, whether it's from motherhood, our significant other or even a job. a common issue...

    What do you as women think about ranking guys?

    I was just reading an article and it got me thinking. guys even walk down the street yelling out numbers and opinions about women. rating women has been institutionalized in beauty pageants but suddenly when men get ranked it's a problem. I can understand not wanting to pigeon hole people out...

    Once i found out anyone could have you i stopped wanting you.

    I had this neat convo today with a bunch of women I know. men always seem to get the reputation of not wanting women who've been passed around. but maybe women feel that way more than society admits. does it phase you when a guy has been around? everyone says it's best for men to have...

    Fat MPDG

    this isn't a new article but a good one. I think we fat women go through this too -- as there really isn't that much difference really between all women except the artificial difference that society puts there. I think it's very easy to become someone's MPDG online. a few cute pix or posts about...

    Scaring people with our bodies ?

    I was looking at an article about an ultra thin model in a Scandinavian magazine. the photo scared me to death for her. undoubtedly pretty, she still looked like a corpse propped up against something. of course there were a lot of comments, most saying she needed help. one woman commented that...

    the film Pride, that is about part of the London LGBT community getting involved with a miner's strike in Wales. it's based on a true story. when I was watching I thought that there is a lot of talk about intersectionality in the fat community but there isn't really very much actually happening...

    Alien Bodies

    before I found out about the fat community nearly 15 yrs ago I spent all of my time submerged in views of average sized bodies. they were absolutely everywhere around me. i was involved in art. absolutely every model i knew was average sized. I was even able to carve a good little niche for...

    Fat Community on the Down Low

    one thing i've often felt conflicted about is how with all of the talk about fat pride the fat community seems often to operate on the down low. i can understand that some people don't want events, especially those intended to be mainly social, tainted by protesters etc... but i've also often...

    Why don’t women know what men find attractive?

    here's an interesting article i'm passing on for comment that came from a guy friend of mine who isn't an FA. the article talks about how men prefer women who are not as thin as women think they prefer. it mentions Kim Kardashian who is hardly fat at all. men of these present generations have...
