This is only one of the incendiary campaign slogans Strong4Life is admittedly using to shock parents into putting their children on diets. For about nine months children and adults in Atlanta have been subjected to these degrading and ridiculing posters, TV ads and billboards.  The Strong4Life ad campaign is part of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Pediatric Hospital’s five-year, $25 million initiative designed to curb childhood obesity in Georgia.
Still, I would feel better if someone like Marilyn Wann, Pattie Thomas, Linda Bacon or any of the many leading academics and scholars on the topic were at least consulted and included in ALL of these campaigns. According Rebecca Puhl, PhD of the Yale Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity, anti-obesity ads that shame and stigmatize parents are ineffective and can actually make the problem worse, It is important to improve children’s physical well-being, but not harm their psychological health. Luckily activist Marilyn Wann, who I previously interviewed for Adios Barbie, hasn’t forgotten or become complacent to the fact that these toxic messages are planting seeds into countless minds of children and adults. What Strong4Life doesn’t get is that their campaign is actually the very personification of the status quo itself. I feel unwelcome here simply because I don’t fit into a manufactured ideal of perfection. Studies the Rudd Center have done also have shown that shame tactics not only fail but actually lead to weight gain. Since we can’t, my fellow activist Ragen Chastain has set up a fund alongside Marilyn Wann and Shannon Russell to put our own billboard chock full of life affirming STANDards up in Georgia!


Cruelty, shame and fear have been the only way weight has been handled in our culture thus far. It was such a joyous moment when in less than 24 hours we raised enough money to launch our first billboard! She invited others to submit pictures and slogans as well and was ecstatic when they started to flood her inbox.
All I know is that the past two or three weeks since the I STAND campaign launched I have felt more empowered than ever. I’m sure these hate mongers and Strong4Life feel  justified given that every image we see in the media promotes unattainable thinness and size prejudice. Please take into consideration the question of the mental health of everyone exposed to your billboards. We are still desperately seeking dollar donations to help unlock More Of Me To Love‘s  generous offer to donate $5,000 if we receive 1,000 pledges. Soon, hundreds of gorgeous empowering photos started turning up on the web, each with their own exquisitely unique representation.
By the time I was five years old I was cognizant of the fact that I was undesirable and had no worth. No one is questioning or criticizing your organization for wanting to better children’s health.
Donate your solidarity dollar to the campaign and believe me it will feel empowering and will be the best buck you ever spent!


I love seeing so many beautiful vital fat people and thin people standing up for compassion and love. Be a part of history and most importantly, no matter where you stand on the debate, be a voice for compassion–not shame. I wonder what it would’ve meant in my life- what a positive impact it might have made- if these images were available to me growing up. I'm the girl who wouldn't make you wait on her hand and foot, but would do anything to make you happy. So these well meant, but misguided efforts go on and on, only adding to the very frightening world of bullying, eating disorders and suicides. I'm the girl who would enjoy having a movie night rather than going to some fancy restaurant.
I'm the girl who would rather stay up all night sharing secrets than go out and getting drunk.
