Weight Prejudice Lessons from a girl named Bene.
Thank you Vitty10 for sending a link to this video created by a biology student on the topic of Fat Prejudice. According to Julie of Beautiful You, the Rudd Center for Food and Obesity Policy at Yale University were so impressed with this piece they have released it to the wider public. Julie goes on to say;
From my perspective, I think it something that all parents should watch with their teen to prompt discussion about the dangers of appearance and weight based teasing and bullying and why it is paramount we all take responsibility for creating a society that appreciates and values diversity in all its forms.
After watching this video, all 17 minutes of it, I have to agree. So, sit back, relax, and take the time to watch it in its entirety. I hope this will spur some positive FA discussion, since as Vitty10 pointed out to me, we tend to turn to the negative here on WATRD when broaching this subject (which I take responsibility for since I admit my guard has been up since getting creamed by the militants during the first month of this blogs existence).
So, time to let bygones be bygones, and learn a thing or two from this amazing kid.
