Shocking revelations about the Anti-KK community. No, really.

A wonderful blog post appeared yesterday in my RSS feed reader. It was written about the fatosphere, but I found it applies directly to the anti KK community also.

Read the full post here.

Here are the major points of the post—substitute the word fatosphere with anti-kk community.

Revelation #1: There is no one person who speaks for the entirety of the fat acceptance community.

We have many anti-kk bloggers. Some are more popular than others. But we all have something to say. So many forget that in blogging you are expressing YOUR opinion.

I don’t profess to speak for other bloggers and they sure as hell can’t speak for me.

Revelation #2: Not everyone in the fatosphere likes everyone else in the fatosphere.

Anytime you bring a group of people together there will be disagreements. Not all of us will see eye to eye on all issues.

Revelation #3: The fatosphere is not filled with carbon copy people. We are not Borg.

That says it all.

Revelation #4: This is the most important thing in this post: the shocking revelations listed above can be good and positive things.

Having differing perspectives on this whole saga is a good thing. As individuals we all see things differently. Feeling free to express those opinions is the foundation of personal freedoms.

Just remember this quote:

YOU ARE BORN AN ORIGINAL. WHY DIE A COPY.

    BRAVA! So true!

  4. oops hit the send button too soon. I wish to comment on the irony or hypocrisy or whatever it is, of disagreeing with the disagreeability of some people involved in this whole Kimkins Krapfest — so many times people did that to me, and so many times I turned right around and did the exact same thing to other people.

    I demand the right to be wrong, damn it! LOL But too often refuse to acknowledge that everybody has that same right.

    So often I fail to graciously make room for other people’s need to conform and to make me conform — all the while, ranting at them for not conforming to my need for nonconformity.

    Case in point — the recent hissyfit re Jo and Mayberry’s opinions. Instead of graciously acknowledging that they like everybody else have the right to have whatever opinion they have as well as the right to express that opinion, I threw a gigantic tantrum, made an ass of myself (for the umpteenth time) and nothing good was accomplished — nothing good for the antiKK investigation, nothing good for the antiKK community, and nothing good for personal relationships either.

    When oh when will I grow up and choose to refrain from this ridiculous overemotionality when these matters of personal freedoms are in play — especially the freedom of speech!

    Time after time Cleo’s famous phrase comes to mind — the dingleberries of self-righteousness! argggh.
