I have been dissatisfied with the name of this Blog for a while now, and I've decided to re-brand it. I'm less comfortable with the phrase “Big is Beautiful” these day's, not because I don't see beauty in fat, but because I see beauty in all body types - including mine. I also wanted to remove the euphamism from the name - I'm not 'big' or 'well built' or (for gods' sake) voluptuous - I am FAT and that's JUST FINE.
I also don't think the degree of whimsy in the name really reflects the actual content of my blog. I've been thinking about how it's developing and the kind of thinking I'm wanting to undertake in the future and The Philosophy of Fat is spot on. Philosophy is my field, and following a trail of critical thinking, with a well founded theory to develop is really the point of this blog. This blog will therefore be largely academic in nature, with a dash of fashion theory to spice things up.
I hope to learn a great deal on the way.
