F-A-T-P-H-O-B-I-A

Fat Phobia: Norms, values, and practices of a culture that devalue fat people and value thin people as the norm.

I’ve had it. I’ve honestly had it. my patience has worn thin. My kind and enlightened words are a little harder to say to individuals who are fat phobic and my mind can’t comprehend their ignorance. Ignorance, after all, in any form is ignorance. With all the phobias and the -isms (Homophobia, racism, sexism, classism, colorism, and all those words/realities), this one surprised me. I‘d known of it, experienced it, but never knew there was a name for it. F-A-T-P-H-O-B-I-A.

Identifying My Self-Identification



It is already February folks. So you know what that means? Black History Month! (Womp-womp). Twenty-eight days of looking back at a history (with a male perspective might I add) that is superficial at best. I have yet to witness a Black History Month that delves beyond Civil Rights and segregation, beyond slavery, beyond colonization. I find myself disassociating with Black History Month altogether because, quite frankly, I do not feel Black or African-American for that matter.
