Guess what!? We’re now in National Eating Disorder Awareness (NEDA) Week, the aim of which is to ultimately prevent eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment.
To celebrate, we want to show you a woman who really loves her body, and showing you how she talks. (A word of caution: the video contains several F-bombs and some sexual descriptions.)
We now present “Fat-Bottomed Girls” by Kim Selling:
Last year, we published Katie McCorkell’s poem “How to Help Someone With an Eating Disorder” on the About-Face blog.
For more information about NEDA, visit their web site or call the free, confidential Helpline, Monday-Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Pacific Standard Time: 1-800-931-2237.
Kim Selling is an occasional writer, sometime poet, and unfailingly proud Californian. She graduated from the University of Washington last year, and is now floating around Seattle until she hits something solid.
LOVE it! 🙂
So glad to see there is a post in honor of NEDAW – a crucial time to battle the stimgas and stereotypes surrounding eating disorders and the faces of those who so often suffer in silence. Thank you for being a voice against these life threatening illnesses!
