Current Reads | You Have the Right to Remain Fat
Author: Virgie Tovar
Rating: Everyone reads this book in my ideal world.
I have read a lot of books about body positivity. I have never read something so simple, informative, and accessible as Tovar's book. It lays out everything that anyone could want or need to know in simple terms that allows for conversation to be had. People often ask how they can support their under privileged friends and the best first step is to educated yourself. This book is SO short you can read it in a couple hours, and it will open up your eyes to the very real prejudices that follow your fat friends and family around. It will also help illuminate the areas of your life that you can do better to not perpetuate negative standards, and how you can better treat yourself.
