There's Only One Thing To Do When The Internet Calls You Fat

Lindy West is a hilarious, smart, beautiful, and powerful writer... and speaker, as it turns out. She blogs at Jezebel and in this talk she recounts a series of events that came about when the Internet discovered that she is fat.
It's a very powerful story of insecurity, courage, empathy, redemption, and good humor. I very highly recommend it.
[just a heads up, there is some crude language in a few spots, but the overall message is stunningly Christlike so... don't worry about it.]
