Jes Baker is a writer and an activist and she has one simple message to send in the following video:
As a promotion for her upcoming book, “Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls,” Baker says in the following PSA:
"We are told that if we are fat, we can't. But the reality is - we can."
Baker goes on to lament how people are taught that “fat” is a negative word, while many sadly believe they are precluded from doing certain things due to their body type and/or size.
She’s looking to change this perception.
"What was the ultimate thing that no one tells fat girls?" Baker tells The Huffington Post. "My answer was: that they CAN.
"They can find love, they can win Emmys, they can whitewater raft, they can have healthy pregnancies, they can ride roller coasters, they can break fashion rules, they can be professional dancers, they can be rockstars, they can have amazing sex, they can, they can, they CAN. And I see it every day.
"And the best part of this message is that it applies to all bodies."
