I believe so we need this. That way people who aren't plus size can understand the struggles we go through. I filled it out already.

Do you believe this is needed?
Not really. Most of the oppressive issues and situations encountered by fat people are pretty well known and already collected by previous studies by real researchers. Unfortunately they were collected and leveraged in advertising by bariatric surgeons to encourage fat people to get WLS.

I wonder if Ashleigh Shackelford looked into the previously published research before launching the fat census website? The effort has "vanity" written all over it. At best it seems more of an LGBT effort riding on the coattails of Fat Acceptance. And with the survey being run apparently by one person, do you really want to share that much personal information with them?
