  1. Just to add a male voice…this wonderful, groundbreaking book published material that previously could only be found in a privately-published many-page pamphlet or manifesto put out by the Fat Underground of Los Angeles collective in the 1970’s. I thought at the time that it would save many lives, and was very happy when the feminist press picked it up. Thank you, feminists!

    Historical note: Some people in size acceptance (in general) and some on the NAAFA board of directors thought it to be too radical at the time. It was like pulling teeth to get the board to authorize the bookstore to carry the manifesto. However, since then, the most energy-intensive part of the size acceptance movement has been driven by those who did not share that very limited view. The politics of size can be very divisive at times.
