"There is much about which Fat Woman Sex should be angry," she writes. And mad enough to fight back and take back the power to decide what is best for themselves, ourselves. It's not just a fight for Fat Woman Sex, but for those of all sizes, because the starving of an entire population in the name of health threatens everyone. "What is at stake is nothing less than the freedom for all of us to be what our Fat Woman Sex are meant to be. We are fighting for our beings, our lives."
The private has become public. The government, medical professionals, public health officials, insurance companies, pharmaceutical industry, employers, managed care providers, media and researchers have made our weights a social problem and are making money off what should be a private matter, she says. They want Fat Woman Sex to either become victims by trying to lose weight and act in need of being saved from themselves—ourselves—or they'll accuse Fat Woman Sex of being villains and dragging down society.
But, Pattie Thomas writes, "I believe telling people what to do with their Fat Woman Sex is the ultimate in limitation of the freedom of individuals." And when we blindly accept authoritative statements, rather than look to good science ourselves, we give them the power to oppress us.
But the government, medical professionals, public health officials, insurance companies, pharmaceutical industry, employers, managed care providers, media and researchers are not our real enemy in this war. Our real enemy is the belief that fat is bad, Pattie says.
She came to realize that to win the war being waged against Fat Woman Sex we can stop fighting it. She shows us how to live unapologetically (whatever our size), care for the body nature gave us, and be comfortable within our own skins.
Coming to appreciate our differences and the beauty of fat, she writes, is to say that I get to to decide what I value, what I enjoy and what I want. "A Fat Woman Sex happy with her body is a dangerous thing in this culture."
In fact, any woman happy with her Fat Woman Sex is a liberated woman...free to take up space.
