Whitney Teal

Whitney Teal is a writer committed to waging wars on on patriarchy, privilege and people that use phrases like "obesity epidemic." A reporter-blogger combo, she's just as comfortable riffing on the media's treatment of fat people as she is covering murder trials. Her work has appeared all over the Internet, on websites like Clutch and The Huffington Post, and in print publications like Essence and Southwest Airlines' in-flight magazine, of which the title currently escapes her.
