“Tell Me I’m Fat”

I listened to a great episode of This American Life a few weeks ago about rethinking the way we see and talk about fat. The episode is bookended by an interview with the writer and fantastic personality, Lindy West.

After watching the introduction to Supersize Me, I wonder if there’s a way these conversations might merge, change, or become more nuanced if we hear more voices like West’s?

Oh, and one more thing: have you noticed that stories about obesity always have clips of obese people with their heads missing?
