Plus-size judge is ‘fat and proud’
This senior judge doesn’t mind being judged on her excess weight.
“Fat and proud,” Sta. Cruz, Laguna regional trial court Executive Judge Princess Bustos Ongkeko said in a post on her Facebook page last Monday, Jan. 16.
The plus-size judge shared a viral video of Australian personality Kelli Jean Drinkwater from last year entitled “Enough with the fear of fat” viewed by over 1.2 million people.
Drinkwater, an artist and activist known for joining fashion runways and her radical body politics, encourages people to rethink biases on fat people saying”unapologetic fat bodies can blow people’s minds.”
Members of the bench are said to be prone to obesity as they do their job sitting down.
