The Importance Of Fat-Friendly Seating In Song – A Collaboration With Fatch

This year Fatch – The Fat Sketch Comedy Show, and I collaborated on a video message about the importance of having seating that works for people of all sizes whenever/wherever it’s safe to gather.

Hint: Link is to a whole fat positive holiday playlist, so keep watching to see all the videos!

When Good Friends Do Bad Diets

As the New Year comes around, the diet industry is doing everything it can to convince all of us to make another (ultimately doomed) weight loss attempt. Even when we aren’t fooled, often our nearest and dearest are still riding the diet roller coaster. And typically that means that they want to talk about it – anywhere and everywhere – in ways that can be anything from annoying to harmful. In this workshop we’ll talk about options for dealing with this in all the scenarios that we may find ourselves in.

  1. Oh my aching butt! Way! And I’ll say, the “Teaching Clinic” where I get my doctor care has gotten uber inclusive over the last three years. Maybe they’ve decided, healthy fat people are a tick better than fat people killing themselves to not be fat people. At least, on some level…

    No guarantee, the bitchy nurse who got to look at my fat pussy during the pap was a total hater. Up yours. She took my BP, was shocked… “Well, nothing to complain about there.” She said-resentfully? What ever. Enjoy the view Karen!

  2. LOL, loved the song, the choreography with the various chairs… and “Cuddles McPickMeUp Royale” in the credits, which has to be the best name ever.

    1. Thanks on all counts! We named the first one after three drag queens and he acts like it. We decided that with Cuddles we didn’t want to take any chances!

      PS: Still practicing your version of Modern Major General, planning to put it out after the holidays!
