Trolls made me donate more money.
I don’t donate to Kickstarter campaigns very often — mostly because I’m usually too broke — but when I heard that there were people working on a documentary called Fattitude, I thought I might throw them a few dollars.
Then today, I logged on to Tumblr and saw that some troll was collecting personal information about donors to harass them. Suddenly, the amount I had planned to give doubled, and, yes, I blocked the bastard on Twitter before I did anything.
Seriously, though, it looks great — they appear to have talked to many of the premiere people involved in fat acceptance and Health at Every Size, so I have a lot of faith that it will be a better portrayal of the movement(s) than other coverage.
