Help with research on Fat Acceptance

Passing it on.

Please feel free to forward or post this CFP on any appropriate site, especially blogs and sites within the Fatosphere.

Thanks, Lonie


We are looking for individuals to participate in email interviews examining the
current attitudes towards fat and at changing those attitudes. All walks of life
are welcome \226 gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, race,
ethnicity, political leanings, and social status do not matter. We are looking for
individuals who somehow participate in the Fatosphere \226 bloggers, commenters
and readers \226 and that consider themselves part of the Fat Acceptance Movement.

These interviews will take place through email in April and May of 2009. The
interviews will involve a series of questions that you may answer by email in your
own time as long as the interview is completed by May 15th, 2009. You may refuse
to answer any question or end the interview at any time.

For the sake of anonymity, we encourage you to create a new email address strictly
for the purpose of this interview. Free email accounts are available through Yahoo
(www.yahoo.com), hotmail (www.hotmail.com), or Google mail (www.gmail.com). In any
published material, you will be quoted using the pseudonym of your choice. Please
contact us from the email address you choose to use at lonie.mcmichael@gmail.com
if you are interested. Please note where you viewed this posting.

This is a fat friendly research project.

I randomly found a t-shirt company today that does geek and sci-fi t-shirts up to a 6XL. Don't know if you already have them on your clothing list: Kapoww T-shirts. They appear to be based in the UK, and it seems like most of the t-shirts are available in 3XL-6XL.

Thanks! My list currently covers US retailers only, but since all the other fat people clothing lists are dead, I will consider adding retailers for other countries.
