After 3 months of the 3-part Weight Stigma Blog Carnival, the end is here. And I’m stumped. Affected by writer’s block. And late!
The third installation was scheduled for Wednesday, September 28, but before I realized what was happening the day had come and gone.
Follow that with Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year from sundown on the 28th to sundown on the 29th, and I’m not a full 2 days late. My apologies to everyone who was eagerly awaiting this post, checking back hourly to see if I’d created it yet. I’m sure many of your were sorely disappointed when I failed to post on time (assuming you noticed, that is).
The third and final Weight Stigma Blog Carnival question
is was: “How is weight stigma (in culture)
a form of abuse that can lead to trauma and/or possibly to eating disorders?”
Well, I think I answered this question pretty well in POST #2 as I studied magazine articles, book titles, and shared my own negative feelings toward them. Remember those adorable cupcake and muffin cartoons that allowed me to tie-in my love of baking with my hopes of contributing to social change?
How about now?
