Weight Stigma Awareness Week Almost Goes Unnoticed By Busy Lady Wearing Pajamas

Weight Stigma Awareness Week is incredibly important and I hope everyone who reads this will support and help spread the word.

  1. Reblogged this on The Cheese Whines and commented:

    I’m reblogging this from my other blog, Sly Fawkes, because Weight Stigma Awareness Week is too important not to tell the world about. The hatred of larger people has become more and more mean-spirited.

    Please spread the word about Weight Stigma Awareness Week and let’s work on making this world a place for every body.
