So, why not walk?
According to a number of men who seem to come crawling out of their hidey hole around this time of year here’s why:
I’m a woman.
I’m a cunt.
I need a man.
I’m walking with another woman.
I have tits.
if you are communicating a message someone doesn't want to hear, is that unto itself harassment?
We adopt those same risks for people that go skiing or ride motorcycles and fast cars or play amateur sports and don't feel we need an "acceptable way to call out" that behavior.
Well, what's the point of having a blog about any issue in the first place? Changing people's minds, right?
Through my own work, I know how important projects like Fattitude are to changing the conversation about fat people in the media and online... 'The project was inspired by a need—an absence of theoretical fat activism in the mainstream,' says Averill, of Fattitude. 'While all the information is out there to open the conversation about the hate that is directed at fat bodies, people don’t even seem to realize that there needs to be a conversation.'
...We desperately need media that deconstructs the way fat people are dehumanized and pathologized in our society."
Part of the job description there is precisely to have the same old arguments again and again, yep
