Girl Inspires the Internet By Dancing While Fat
Whitney Thore was a body-shaming thin person. Then she got Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and gained 200 pounds in 2 years. The result was a new awareness of how much she'd suffered from internalizing screwed up ideas about her body, and an aggressive campaign to change that from both inside and out. Hence her viral videos, self-titled "Fat Girl Dancing" as a way to reclaim the F word without shame. The fact that people have been so deeply moved by a woman of size moving her body is proof of how ready people are to hear this message—and how far we still have to go.
