I’ve been hoping for a while now that Jess would write something and let me post it here. So I was totally thrilled yesterday when the timing of her reading that article and the two of us emailing worked out so well. *grin*
I just want to mention that, while health was discussed as a valid meterstick for personal goals, HEALTH IS NOT A MORAL IMPERATIVE.
Being healthy by some arbitrary set of standards is not a requirement for being treated like a worthwhile human being. Being healthy by some arbitrary set of standards is not a requirement for being worthy of love, attraction, life experiences, and everything else. Being healthy by some arbitrary set of standards is not a requirement for being a part of the fat acceptance movement.
Now just seemed like a good time to reiterate that point.
