First, I’d like to give a shout-out and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my girl Heather “Cat” Harris! Right now, we’re getting ready to celebrate by going to Disneyland! It’ll be my first trip to Disney, and I’m SO EXCITED!
But before I go…yesterday, I had a huge response to my post, “The Last Acceptable Prejudice.” I’m so glad that so many people got so much out of it and shared it around the interwebz to start what is, in my opinion, a really important conversation about fat shaming. That’s why I put writing into the world – not only to communicate ideas myself, but to help others do the same.
However, a genderqueer friend of mine gave me some quality food for thought yesterday when zhe brought up the fact that the “last acceptable prejudice” isn’t against fat people, but against transgender people. I thought this was really interesting.
While I have my reasons ultimately disagreeing with that – ones I will put into a more substantive post later, I’m curious as to what you all have to say about it. So, by all means, comment below! Is the last acceptable prejudice against transgender people? I think this is an important conversation, too, and I’d love to include all of you in that discussion.
Meanwhile, I’m off to Disneyland! I’ll tell Mickey and Minnie you all say hello.
