So next week I have drawn the lucky ticket which means I get to facilitate a first year workshop on obesity. I have really mixed feelings about this!

fat people and doctors )

Any suggestions or thoughts? I myself believe in health at every size, but I welcome perspectives from people who subscribe to the mainstream medical view of obesity as long as you start from the assumption that fat people are human beings worthy of respect. (And if you don't believe that, why are you even friends with me, a fat person?)

While we're on the subject, I am drawing sparkly hearts all over this lovely article by Lesley A Hall, guesting at the wonderful Body Impolitic, where Hall compares the obesity epidemic to older health panics about masturbation.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
