Coffee Catholic is off the Fat Liberation Feed

Hi all,

I just wanted to announce that Coffee Catholic is off the Fat Liberation feed. Her blog isn’t much about fat these days, and some of the imagery has been pretty offensive, so I don’t think that her blog is a fit for the Fat Liberation feed anymore.

There was also some questions about her politics and rhetoric in the previous post, and there were some things I considered to be out of line (though, as I’d argued, no more than the Fatosphere feed), and upon reflection I decided that I don’t want the FL feed to exist as merely a counterbalance to the Fatosphere feed. It is its own, separate entity, and is not going to be playing by the same rules (which I think are a tendency to squeeze out one political party while promoting and encouraging extremists on the other side).

Apologies to those that were offended by CC, and apologies to CC since this was so abrupt.
