Hello Again Fatosphere.

So hey Fatosphere homies, welcome back. Or welcome as the case may be.

If you haven't followed me forever I was on the Fatosphere feed years ago, around when it started up and fell off for reasons.

However I have been informed I am returned, so hello and hello.


Now how about a sort of intro.

As you can see via my profile I'm Shannon. Right now I'm a small fat person. I've been way fatter and way smaller. It doesn't really change anything but my pants size.

I am very Queer. Very not in the closet about it.

I am not nice. Let me be plain here and let y'all know that there are things I don't do here anymore:

  1. Anti racism 101. I just don't.
  2. Fat/Body politics 101.
  3. Any sort of 101.
Let me be even more plain. 

A lot of what I talk about is next level shit. This is full immersion intersectionality. White folks there are going to be days you're going to be really uncomfortable and that is just too bad. You will have to figure that out because I won't hold your hand through it.

One of you new folks was curious about the term Death Fat.

Lesley Kinzel whom you can read at XOjane coined the term for people in the Mortally obese or really really fat category. 

Let's talk about that for a moment.

If your flavor of FA does not extend to and sometimes exclusively deal with people who are above a size 24 or who are really fucking fat, you are not doing it right. Period point blank.

What else?

Oh I should warn you I do not and will not self identify as a feminist which I discussed at length which you can read here. Also understand that you will not talk me out of this so please don't try, I don't like it. It is a hard limit with strangers.


Oh also 99% of the things I talk about come from my personal lived life. I don't blog in depth about science, studies, papers, etc. If that is what you're looking for I'm certain other people do that far better than I do.

I think that's about all for right now. I have some posts in the works for this week. 

Outside of this little corner of the internet I'm also a writer of other things. You can check that out at my author website, find stories and my writing business blog. 

If you stick around I can't promise it'll always be pleasant but I can at least be entertaining.

Homo Out.


Hey Homies, how is your self care going? I fell off the wagon a little bit but I am back on. I am well hydrated, have food and took my vitamins. Beatfreak? MCCN how are you homies doing?
