The Fat of the Land - a solo episode about looks, weight, beauty standards and dignity

I recorded a short solo podcast with my thoughts on the discourse on body image, what our standards are and what they might be.
22

Among other things, I speak about:

  • Body obsessions both on the Right and Left.

  • The Right Wing perspective of aesthetics as embodied worship of nature beyond the intellect.

  • Our food environment, as a mine field of limbic traps.

  • Eating disorders as adaptations to the environment.

  • The 90s and 2000s diet culture.

  • Ozempic and the morality of easy weight loss.

  • The scale as the “Roman Empire” of many a millennial woman.

  • Finicky beauty ideals that “men don’t care about.”

  • Treading the line between the lies of Healthy at Any Size and thinking about your looks 24/7.

  • The fact that you don’t owe people attraction, but you might owe them dignity
