Small, Unmarked Bills —

No theme because this will be the only post you will see on Fierce, Freethinking Fatties until we unlock the More of Me to Love Match.

We need 1,000 people to donate to unlock the MOMTL Match and until we reach that goal, we are holding our fresh, daily content hostage.

There’s one catch… the Go Fund Me site where we launched our Big, Fat Moneybomb will not accept less than $5, and we know that in this economy, that can make a major difference. So, Ragen has set up this PayPal donation site for people to contribute between $1 and $5, This is specifically for people who want to show their solidarity with Stand4Every Body, but don’t want to break the bank in doing so. That’s why we’re calling these donations Solidarity Dollars.

Every Solidarity Dollar brings us closer to our goal of 1,000 donors. We already have 72 Solidarity Dollar donors, bringing us to a total of 485 donors, including the moneybomb.

We are halfway to our goal and halfway to an additional $5,000 from More of Me to Love, all of which goes to our media campaign in Atlanta.

Please give any amount to our Solidarity Dollar campaign so that we can get back to the business of kicking some ass fatly.

And if you can afford more, please give generously to the main donation site, as we will continue raising money throughout Fatty February to build a robust response to Strong4Life and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

    Your link to PayPal doesn’t work.

    You’re delusional if you think HAES and the three tenets you posit do any good for the morbidly obese kids in this country setting themselves up for a life of misery unable to enjoy their childhood and burdening an already overstressed healthcare system with a largely avoidable condition as they get older. Unable to work efficiently, taking frequent sick time, premature death,the works. Do yourself and these kids a favor and let Georgia shake these kids and their parents into giving a damn what they put in their bodies through this perfectly appropriate advertising campaign. For all your so-called ” medical research ” supporting a life of lethargy as being healthy, I would suggest you view this video http://devour.com/video/23-and-a-half-hours/

      Yeah, those stupid three tenets of eating healthy foods, exercising and not loathing yourself! What good has healthy food, exercise and self-love done for anyone! Nothing!

      I love when people obviously read some/most of a post, then come back and say the exact opposite of what the post actually says.

      Me: “Hey everybody, exercise is good for EVERY body, and not just for those who lose weight because of it.”
      Jack Sprat: “How dare you support a life of lethargy!”

      What the fuck are you smoking, Jack, and can I have some?

      Peace,
      Shannon

      I have been obese my entire life….well, at least since puberty. The ONLY time I have missed work (which I didn’t even draw payment for, it was unpaid time off) was when I was seeing a counselor regularly. I was in counseling in large part to deal with my low self-esteem which came from a lifetime of bullying about my weight. And that was WITHOUT a state-sponsored bullying campaign against me. So I don’t even want to hear this “all fat people cost employers money” bullshit.

    Thanks for the info on the fund, I’ve donated and hope the project does some good. I was an obese child, and am an obese adult. But as an adult I’ve been able to take control of my lifestyle,which means regardless of weight I am healthy. Kids don’t have that choice – particularly poor kids. Nothing is lower than shaming children. Why doesn’t Georgia spend the money instead on some prevention programs – like free nutritional education classes for parents?
