Chicago FA bloggers make the news

posted in Fat Acceptance |
Kate Harding - Chicago Tribune Redeye

The Chicago Tribune’s Redeye ran a feature story on fat acceptance bloggers today, featuring none other than the fatosphere’s very own Kate Harding on the cover.

Paul from Big Fat Blog was interviewed (and put in a plug about COFRA), and Colleen of the blog Pretty Pear had a whole sidebar piece on plus-size fashion. The-F-Word received a cursory mention, as well as The Rotund and Big Fat Delicious.

And the article ended on this beautiful note by Kate:

“You’re spending mental energy on hating yourself and trying to become a body type you’re not meant to be,” Harding said. “You’re wasting so much time and losing opportunities to go out and do things you love.”

Great job, guys!
