Site announcement: new comment policy

The comments on My Body is Not Heartbreaking got me thinking. Occasionally I’m up for engaging with well-meaning people who are unfamiliar with Fat Acceptance and Health At Every Size. But I don’t have the time, energy, or inclination to engage on a regular basis with people who believe fat = inherently unhealthy or bad.

And I want to make my comments a safe space for people of all sizes to hang out without hearing that their bodies are wrong.

So, effective now, I will not publish any comments that conflate weight and health, or otherwise pathologize fatness.

If you are genuinely curious about FA and HAES, please read these FA 101 Resources.

If you just want to talk about how terrible “obesity” is, please do that on your own blog.

Also not allowed are diet talk, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, ableism, and personal attacks.

Thank you!
