People keep sending me messages about how the lack of acceptance of fat politics is because we don’t matter. That the work I do doesn’t help anyone and the words I write do nothing.
Yet, I’m getting anonymous messages from someone who is so scared of the things I say and the words I write that they have to send me hateful messages.
Because you should. Netroots Nation is holding a scholarship contest to pay for registration for the conference in Detroit this summer. Being able to go to conferences and network with other activists is incredibly important to talking about fat politics outside of fat community. Sadly, since my work isn’t paid and I do all of this on a volunteer basis I’m unable to afford the $350 registration fee.

If you are outside of the US use the zipcode 48202 or google to find another one!
If you won’t do it for me do it for my mom’s puppy Snickers.
A troll has been doxing the filmmaker, contributors and now is targeting backers of the kickstarter for the film Fattitude. As of now twitter has done nothing to remove this person from their website, where he keeps posting links to personal information he’s collected. Twiter, kickstarter and pastebin are all complicit in the harassment and stalking of these people.
Block and report this person, report the individual tweets, report the links in the tweets. Tweet at kickstarter, pastebin and twitter. Don’t be silent while people’s personal information is being spread around the internet. Make it stop.
