The cultural and racial perceptions of body image and weight, and how such perceptions translate into romantic desirability for single men and women will be the focus of Sucka Free Dating – The Smart Relationship Talk Show (http://blogtalkradio.com/askheartbeat) with host Deborrah Cooper on Wednesday, April 16th, 2008 at 8:00 p.m. Pacific.
The live, call-in show will feature two guests active in the body acceptance movement; Dr. Lisa A. Breisch is a Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist who specializes in working with plus-size individuals. Breisch also owns Club Round, which sponsors activities such as speed dating nights for plus-size teens and adults and their admirers. Laurie Toby Edison is an internationally exhibited photographer "Women En Large: Images of Fat Nudes" and body image activist, who blogs at Body Impolitic (http://www.laurietobyedison.com).
I wonder if calls will be screened, and how many trolls there will be that get through? I really hate to think that would happen, but any time fat is mentioned, trolls delight in making their bias/hatred/phobia known.
But anyway, a shout out for Laurie Toby Edison and congrats on appearing on this show :)
