The Fat Word

The Fat Word strives to bring the perspectives and life experiences of fat people into the main stream culture. Fat is Not a Four Letter Word.

Rules of the Game

The Fat Word supports fat activism, body positivity, and social justice movements worldwide. Inclusivity is paramount. We struggle together, we fight together. The Fat Word is a place for open discussion. We have two rules only. You disparage another person for their appearance and you're gone. All other topics are open for discussion at the moderators discretion. As long as you follow the rules of civil, logical debate, you'll be fine. Straw men are not welcome here, nor are concern trolls. If you have genuine questions about the fat acceptance movement, you're in the right place. If you seek to sow dissent, move along.
