This still falls into the trap of feeling like we need to prove fat people aren't unhealthy for us to be worthy of being treated like human beings.  There's a sense that you shouldn't engage in fat shaming because some fat people are healthy, when the real reason you shouldn't engage in fat shaming is because fat people are people, and treating a group of people like crap for a shared physical characteristic is bigoted, hateful and disgusting.  I understand the impulse towards saying "fat people can be healthy too", and it's certainly true.  

It's also true (although they don't cover this) that there are many more factors involved in weight than diet and exercise, including genetic and metabolic ones that can be very hard to counteract.  It's true that 95% of people who lose weight regain it, and often more, within three years, in the process opening themselves up to the proven health risks of yoyo dieting.  Treating weight like a metric for qualities of character, aside from being inaccurate, is incredibly unfair, since some people spend their whole lives effortlessly thin, while others (like myself), despite struggling to meet society's overwhelming demand that they be thin, remain fat all of our lives. 

That aside, it makes some good points.

Yeah, they really can, as can lack of adequate material services for fat people.  What happens when you're too big for the stretcher, or when the nurse doesn't want to touch you and so doesn't examine you correctly?  Too many times, the answer is you die.

We should also look at the daily cost of living.  When I was in Spain a while back mind you, it was much more expensive to live.  Gas was sold by the liter and it matched our gallon price.

This applies to any holiday or vacation, really.  Say it with me, folks; other people's bodies are not your concern.

It is not important whether I succeed or fail; only that I live beautifully.
Introduction
Hi, I'm Abigail Hanley.  I live with my wonderful fiance and our three adorable cats in a small apartment inside the DC Beltway.  Before that, I lived in Baltimore, NJ and Hawaii, and I grew up in the lovely town of Wethersfield, CT.

I've recently finished a degree in History, with an Art minor.  I also really love Anthropology, and have made a fairly serious study of it.  I am fairly serious about oil painting, and also do a good amount of work in pastel and conte crayon and some digital art.  

Quite separate from those things, I'm a long time geek.  I started playing D&D when I was nine, and never looked back.  At the moment, I'm Co-GMing a Dresden Files game and writing for Threads of Damocles, a excellent larp.  I prefer PVE to PVP and narrativist to gamist structures, and love world design.  I also enjoy board gaming (particularly co-operative or semi-cooperative games, although I do love Dominion) and video gaming (mostly RPG's like Dragon Age, Mass Effect and Fallout and silly stuff like Katamari)
 
I'm a steadfast liberal, a vocal feminist, a Theist with Pagan leanings, and a confirmed lover of beauty.  I believe that your waistline has nothing to do with your value as a person, and that treating those who are different from you with fairness and respect is the most important thing you can do to improve the world around you.  I'm also fairly friendly most of the time.

The major gaming project I'm involved with at the moment is Threads of Damocles, a highly structured and sandboxed, cross genre larp for which I am a major writer and one of the administrative staff.  We are currently welcoming new players; if you wish to get involved, there is a link to the Wiki on the bar at your right, or you are welcome to contact us about it directly at info@threadsofdamocles.org

My (non-private) circles are: History/Anthropology, Science/Philosophy, Politics/Social Commentary, Gaming, Game Design/Writing, Art, and ZOMGKittens. I limit the membership of the latter to those who actually express interest.  If you want to be in one or more of these circles, please let me know.
