Let me tell you what I would do | The Body Liberation Guide

Often when I post about the way I as a very fat person am treated, I’ll get responses along the lines of, well, you just have to be confident and stand up for yourself and people won’t treat you like that.

Or, here’s what I would do in that situation (insert behavior that’s very aggressive, would have serious ramifications for the person doing it and isn’t likely to be what the commenter would do in a real world situation).

There are a few threads I want to pull out and examine here.
