I’ve been aware of and somewhat plugged into the fat acceptance movement for about 15 months, give or take.
(Wow. It seems like it’s been a lot longer than that. But yeah, it’s really been only a little bit more than a year.)
So, for all that there are many times that I feel like I get this new way of seeing the world and seeing myself, I know that there’s a whole lot of basic-level learnin’ I need to do.
Therefore, part of what I’m going to use this space for is to do some reading and responding and thinking and blathering about “FA 101” kind of materials. I’m curious to see how much of it will look familiar to me from this recent year-and-a-smidge of low-level involvement in the community. I’m curious to see how much of it will be brand-new.
The books already in my possession to be read as part of this project:
- Kate Harding & Marianne Kirby; Lessons from the Fat-O-Sphere
- Gina Kolata; Rethinking Thin
- Evelyn Tribole, Elyse Resch; Intuitive Eating
- Marilynn Wann; Fat! So?
Any other suggestions, recommendations, or review copies will be gratefully appreciated.
See you in the classroom when it’s next book report day…..
