Jezebel Wraps up the Biggest Weight Stories of 2010

2 Jan

Jezebel recaps last year’s fattest stories, including how Whole Food discriminates against their plus-sized employees, how Kevin Smith got kicked off Southwest for being “Too Fat To Fly”, a piece about Gabourey Sidibe, how Maura Kelly was offended and disgusted by fat people ‘getting it on’ on TV, and a so called fat ballerina, among other stories. Great recap, funny as hell and definitely lots of food for thought.

You can read the entire thing here. For me, Maura Kelly’s cruel opinion piece in Marie Claire took the cake when it comes down to robbing plus-sized women of self-esteem. And Gabourey Sidibe is still a source of inspiration. Maybe, just maybe, 2011 is going to be the year where the media embraces that whatever weight you are, you can be happy and healthy and that you have the right to feel loved and accepted.

This blogger can dream, right?
