Don’t kid yourself into thinking weight issues are not important. It isn’t a frivolous thing. Fat is still a feminist issue. Weight is not just about our bodies. It’s how we feel about ourselves. It affects every decision we make. The status quo would like you to think of it as a petty, unimportant thing, to make fun of it like it is a ridiculous, female obsession, a weakness. It is one of their greatest weapons. Don’t become a casualty. This war is almost over, and we are going to win.
When we let go of that, our arms are free to do everything."
