Thank you for the link. Some of the organization's approaches seem a little loud for my tastes, but then again the people they are fighting are very loud too, so I can forgive it. Action and reaction, I guess.

I still prefer the positive approach, although I see the need for someone, anyone, EVERYone, to oppose the diet industry.

Thinking about the name of the organization, I feel that "freedom" is the most important term. So much of this always comes down to freedom, or the lack of it. Women of size are always given restrictions of one kind or another. Restrictions on what they can wear. Restrictions on what they can eat. Restrictions on how overtly feminine they can be. Its incredible, when you stop to think about it. We live in a free society, but so many people seem to make it their life's mission to try to limit that freedom, in one way or another.

I loved MODE because it always said that you could dress any way you like, eat whatever you want, and just be yourself. It's a life-affirming message that is still very rarely heard.
