fat acceptance is beautiful

http://ineedfatacceptance.tumblr.com/

This is a Tumblr with photos of people of various sizes (mostly fat) holding signs that say "I need fat acceptance because..." along with their reason.

The project took place at NOLOSE this past weekend.

It's making me cry.

So many things to say about the conference this year. I'll start with saying about 50% were first timers, and that there was open spontaneous conversation about The Demographic That Wasn't There. Possibly coordinating a local debrief, will keep you posted, but if it doesn't come together maybe we could set up a chat. Very, very encouraged.

I need fat acceptance because I need my kids to tell me they love me and not simultaneously telling me I'm fat and lazy.
