Meanwhile, over at Shakesville, Melissa McEwan responds to this fuckery--"BBC: Tell loved ones they are overweight this Christmas." Wow, really? Because I didn't know and would just go on in blissful ignorance if someone didn't tell me. It's not like I don't get fat-shamed over and over again in this fat-hating society. If I did celebrate Christmas, this would ruin it for me forever. So don't listen to the BBC, please, if you actually love your friends and family members who happen to be fat.
Pull out quote: I will never stop being amazed by how we are encouraged to regard all fatties as people overeating to fill an emotional void, then interact with them in abusive ways that create emotional voids. --Melissa McEwan Can we clone her? We need an army of Melissas.
