Shapelings, in a few weeks I’ll be giving a public lecture at my new academic institution. In the lecture I plan on doing a theologically-inflected Fat Acceptance 101. Or perhaps it will be a Theology of Embodiment 101 with a big helping of Fat Acceptance. I don’t know, because I haven’t written it yet. But it would help me out tremendously if you could post or send anecdotes/examples of lefty religious settings — especially white liberal churches who fancy themselves tolerant and welcoming — engaging in either fat shame or fat acceptance.
I wish I could give the pertinent details but I keep my online identity separate from my work identity. But do know that I thank you very very much for the help, and will credit anyone whom I quote or whose work I use, in whatever way you wish.
