Because Some People Have NOTHING Better To Do With Their Time

A friend from outside of the fandom and I have been having a conversation about which stories get to be told. Not deemed important, but just told to begin with. If you've never been told to hush for the overall good of your community, be it fandom or family, you can consider yourself lucky. Sometimes the target is one person but sometimes it's an entire community.

Lindsey Averill has been working on a documentary called Fattitude: A Body Positive Documentary and has unfortunately run into a troll. The type of troll who doesn't just disagree but looks up as much info on you as they can and then tattles to whoever they can find who might be persuaded to rein you in and shut you up. You can read about it at Dances With Fat. If you're moved, there's a link for you to contribute to Averill's kickstarter. 

One of the contributors to Fattitude is co-founder of The Body Is Not An Apology and slam poet Sonya Renee so I'm ending with the piece "The Body Is Not An Apology." Gorgeous, like she is.



  1. Totally agree. Then again, I would, given recent experiences. I don't know why people can't put all this energy into creativity or changing the world for good.

    1. I don't get it, either. I especially don't get the point of tattling.

    2. Couldn't agree more, Servetus!

  2. Thanks for the info, Jazz! Kickstarter project duly backed. :)
