2011 Liberal Jackass Quotes of the Year - #8

'The Fat Studies Reader'

"What Is Fat Studies?  The Social and Historical Construction of Fatness" (Pt. 1 of the book)

"Fat Studies in Health and Medicine" (Pt. 2 of the book)

Normally I wouldn't post about books on overweight issues, but this book is about much more than fat.

"Fattening Queer History:  Where Does Fat History Go From Here?" (Chapter in Pt. 1)

"Widening the Dialogue to Narrow the Gap in Health Disparities:  Approaches to Fat Black Lesbian and Bisexual Women's Health Promotion" (Chapter in Pt. 2)

"Quest for a Cause:  The Fat Gene, the Gay Gene, and the New Eugenics." (Chapter in Pt. 2)

I don't make this stuff up; I couldn't if I wanted to...For those who think these two chapters are outliers:

"Double Stigma:  Fat Men and Their Male Admirers" (Chapter in Pt. 3)

Egads!  How pathetic for the makers of this book to pretend it's about overweight people when it really looks to be a book about homosexuals...Make that homosexuals who are fatties.
