143: Fat Nike Mannequin Controversy- if you’re going to be concerned about your fat friends’ health, then you need to also be concerned about your thin friends’ health

The Nike store in London debuted their plus sized mannequin. This story should end right here- but it doesn’t- because the entire world is steeped in fat-phobia and it sucks.

So, what’s the issue? All of it. People have spoken out that this mannequin undoes all of the work put into “the war against obesity” and promotes unhealthiness.

This episode stands as a big F-you to the ideologies that support this thinking- and I’m inviting you all to think differently, too. This stuff matters & we have to keep talking about it.
