Maura Kelly certainly made waves with her writing last week: in all seriousness, we actually think she'll bring an interesting perspective to this course on the personal essay — as well as the dangers inherent in making the personal public.
If you try to find the lightning-rod "opinion piece" "Should Fatties Get a Room (Even On TV)" a funny thing happens: nothing. It seems that, without a word, the magazine has taken the offensive post down.
I ask because, well, that's where this started, isn't it? When Maura Kelly unwisely decided to proceed with articulating her disgust with "fatties," it was because her editor brought it up.
A few days before Maura Kelly, a blogger for Marie Claire, published a piece called "Should Fatties Get A Room?" we received an email asking why this site "glorifies" obesity.
