Fat Acceptance Newsletters

Hey! Someone I love had an abusive, fat phobic experience recently with a "doctor" and we're pissed off about it. Please comment below with the names of any fat-positive and fat-acceptance newsletters and information. We're going to send them to their office.

Please repost.

Cool - or I can just make a photocopy of the one I have. I'm wondering: should I send the stuff I'm going to mail all at once, or a little at a time?

http://fathealth.wordpress.com is an ideal place for researching and reporting this very problem. I hope it offers you some good resources!

Awesome - thank you! And I read your anti-diet post and loved it, just didn't have time to formulate a coherent comment yet!

Alright, so the following will be mailed to their office Monday:

- Dear Dr. letter from a Fat Patient, which was published in the May 1981, Issue #4, of "F.A.T. - Feminist Fat Activists Together," which I've never heard of but sounds amazing.

- Article on weight bias among health professionals specializing in obesity.

- International No Diet Day Facts and Figures

- Chubster business cards

- ISSA Size Acceptance bibliography

- Copy of Laura and Knoll's zine

- NAAFA policies on healthcare providers and healthcare rights, if I can find them online.

The only thing I can't find is what I REALLY WANT...newsletters on fat acceptance that they would get over and over...

Going to keep looking.
