We got a letter about our post that said, 
Austin Zehnder and Will Frey are rapists
Apparantly Will Frey’s father, Bill Frey, the Director at a company called BlackRock, believes that the statement
Austin Zehnder and Will Frey are rapists
should not be said on a post that accompanies their pictures. We have deleted the post, but thought you might want to see the letter we received from Bill Frey, Director of BlackRock. The letter also links to an image of the original post, the one we reblogged, adding
Austin Zehnder and Will Frey are rapists
So, there. The picture of Austin Zehnder and Will Frey with the statement that they are, in fact, rapists, has been removed from this blog.

Hello Friends and Community Members,


Some of you may know me, some of you may not. I am a woman with a disability who uses an electric wheelchair. I am also a Social Worker. I have a pug named Anabelle and a Siamese cat named Cameo. After 13 years of living and working in Vancouver, I made the very poor decision of moving back to my hometown of Montreal. I wanted to move back for many reasons: the culture, the food, to be closer to family, to work as a Social Worker in Montreal. After 13 years, the lack of wheelchair and disability access are just as bad as ever. It’s atrocious. I got into a brand new wheelchair-accessible housing co-op without ever seeing the unit itself before landing in Montreal on July 1. Well, the unit is not fully WC-accessible and it will not be for at least one year. I have been looking for work to no avail. I don’t even have an oven or stove. I am currently on social assistance and am receiving barely just enough to cover my rent. I spent $4,200 just to move my stuff across the country. I am now attempting to sell it all. My housing co-op here is being understanding and will likely let me break my lease without penalty. I honestly thought moving back to Montreal was the right thing for me. Now I realize that leaving Vancouver was the biggest mistake of my life. I had a great life there and I am only sorry I didn’t fully realize it then. The community in Vancouver is also pretty freakin’ awesome. My friends suggested we try this. Thank you for reading, folks. This certainly isn’t easy.

Itemizing of Costs:

Moving furniture and belongings from Van to Mtl.: $4200
Flight from Van to Mtl. with pets: $414
Flight from Mtl. To Van with pets: $414

Rent and money to tide me over until I can get a job or income assistance: $2000”


When we look at thin bodies, we like thin bodies more. When we look at fat bodies, we like fat bodies more. If you hate or fear fat, and all you ever see is mainstream media full of thin bodies… Try a visual diet. Change what your eyes eat.

Hi Everyone!

The It Gets Fatter Project is a Toronto/Montreal-based body positivity project started by fat people of colour, for fat people of colour! We would really love to send Asam to represent us at the NOLOSE conference in July that takes place in Portland. 

We have received partial funding for registration and lodging, however we need your generous support for us to be able to attend. 

Please donate ANYTHING you can! If you an ally and can afford it, this is a great way to support the project. If you donate $20 or more, you will get 3 buttons designed by us! 

If we are not able to raise the total amount, your donations will go to other It Gets Fatter endeavours in the future. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH! 

XOXO

It Gets Fatter!

Support these folks, it would be so great to have them at NOLOSE this year!
