ED 101 — A Film About Eating Disorders

This is our first post from Robyn Hussa, President of Normal in Schools (NIS). She started NIS driven to bring to our schools education about eating disorder through theater (or as Robyn would say “theatre” but I’m not so hip to the art scene). We all think we know everything about eating disorders, after all we are suffers, […]

This is an excerpt from WATRD Contributor Kim Brittingham’s book Read My Hips. See accolades at the bottom of the page! —— I don’t ever remember my mother being fat, and yet I clearly remember her dieting.  When I was growing up, she read many women’s magazines — Redbook, Family Circle, Woman’s Day.  As a stay-at-home […]

How many “I hate my body” moments have you had today (already?)

This guest post provided by Heidi_PsyD from http://www.examiner.com/eating-disorder-in-philadelphia/heidi-dalzell Despite some trends to the contrary, many young women continue to experience negative very body image Glamour magazine’s yearly survey.

TMZ posted a blurb today that started out as such: Gabourey Sidibe might have a weight problem, but it doesn’t mean she’s unhealthy … this according to the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA). Yes, that’s a real group. Sigh. The blurb goes on to explain NAAFA’s position that “You cannot tell by looking […]

Of Fatness and False Benevolence

March 4, 2010 by  
Filed under Fat Acceptance

Kim Bensen and Meme Roth are individually building careers out of harming fat people and calling it “help”. Their methods differ, but the game is the same.

The commonality between Bensen and Roth and others like them is an egocentric delusion. Each believes she has the one and only true answer to the “obesity problem”. They see themselves as crusaders; Florence Nightingales to the fat masses who can’t seem to help themselves, poor things.

But their “concern” for fat people is a sham – and not even the messiahs themselves are able to see it. To recognize it, and further to admit it, would shatter their apparently delicate psyches.

But I think it’s time to call the bullshitters on their phony benevolence, to bring into question their misguided “aid”. Let’s pull away the downy baby blankets that protect their deeper motivations to wage war on other people’s bodies.
