Obesity Stigma: Important Considerations for Public Health
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2866597/

Stigma and discrimination toward obese persons are pervasive and pose numerous consequences for their psychological and physical health.

I love Peyton.

His accent is comforting and he sounds like he gives good hugs.

The Alabama fight song was such a regular part of my life that I forget that it's a regional thing.

I remember liking Roly Poly and Poky Puppy. I couldn't tell you if they were actually any good but I do know kids books these days Have gotten good.

If you're ever buying kids books; look for illustrator David Catrow. Funny Lunch is the best.

That back and forth was you calling pageant participants dumb because of a few clips you watched and me saying that is an unfair assessment.

Nothing about body weight stigma.
