Fat Shaming - Bill Maher Got It Wrong

Fat Shaming - Bill Maher Got It Wrong

I recently watched a couple of videos by American Late Late Night Talk Show hosts Bill Maher and James Corden and not only did I feel attacked, I was shocked and worried.

In this video I explain what these men were talking about in their videos and why my experience with eating disorder recovery caused me to react the way that I did.

I was so ashamed of my body in that time of my life.

I was absolutely certain that others were constantly judging me based on what my body looked like and was terrified that if they knew that I shopped at the plus sized stores, that would somehow justify this imaginary judgement.

So, standing at the cash register in the clothes store, I would whip out a wrinkly, beat up plastic Safeway shopping bag (or two) from my purse and insist that the woman serving me put my new clothes into that rather than a bag from under her counter.

n this video, I talk about the changes that Facebook has made recently to its algorithm as a result of people on the platform telling them that they just don't want to see all the diet-y crap any longer.

And just like that *snaps fingers* I feel like we might actually be getting somewhere with our enormous efforts to spare people from developing eating disorders.
