Ragen Chastain of Dances With Fat marks her birthday today.
Her mission statement? Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are Not Size Dependent.
She has to field a lot of inane hate-mail – one advising that “Suicide would be a favor (sic) to humanity”. There has even been a post on WordPress questioning the validity of her achievements.
Yet still she keeps on going!
Ragen says: “Nothing says ‘Happy Birthday Ragen!’ like standing up to fat bigotry and oppression, so my suggestion for this Say Something Sunday is to post something awesomely body affirming to social media, here is an option (if it’s not for you that’s totally cool, feel free to post something that makes sense for you!)”
