AN SSBBWs WORLD
Information and rants about living in the real world as an SSBBW
As SSBBWs, we live in a world built for smaller people. Each day we face challenges to fit in, or even to just fit. While education and information are powerful tools, our best resource is each other. Let us know your tips or rants about this subject at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This month we are featuring Mary, an SSBBW from London, UK.

Letters to the Editor...
We receive a few letters to the editor now and then and would like to post them here. If you have anything to say we'd love to hear from you too, so send us an email.
"I found this by accident. I like the format and real people. I happen to know one of the pretty ladies and all she said is true. You can be big and pretty too!! Whats so wrong with being big??????? And the sites on line mostly won't even let you compliment the women unless you join the sites!! A lot of men are assholes but there are some of us who really love everything about them. I doubt if your magazine will be big because big women get such a raw deal. And thats sad. To me, bigger is so much better. Will always be that way too! Please continue and maybe one day all these sexy ladies will get the attention they deserve. I love them all." [FA]
