Quote of the Day: Kate Harding

“One of the first obstacles to fat acceptance is breaking down the question of whether being fat is a choice … No fat acceptance advocate is saying you should sit around and wildly overeat. What we’re saying is that exercise and a balanced diet do not make everyone thin.”
- Kate Harding, founder of the blog Shapely Prose, in an interview with The New York Times for a story about the fatosphere.

Read the story (very good) and check out postings from some of the blogs mentioned in the article.
