From Shakesville: Rape culture 101. What does this have to do with fat acceptance? (STRONG trigger warning, both for the article and for the quote below.)
If a person's body, whether male or female, is treated as public property, it is publicly available to be shamed, commented on, made fun of, moo-ed at, etc. Especially if that body is different in any way; fat, thin, dis-abled, coloured, tattooed, whatever. As a fat acceptance activist and feminist, I`m constantly reminded that fat IS a feminist issue and that self-confidence and self-acceptance are two keys that can unlock the doors leading out of (some) of the oppression we face on a constant, daily basis, oppression base on our size AND our gender.
