Hello again witches, seekers and friends, and thanks for tning in to episode 33 of the fat feminist witch podcast, the show where I do a little ranting raving and wand waving. I am your host, Paige the fat feminist witch, broadcasting from not so sunny southerwestern ontario, and today we are talking about FATPHOBIA!
CONTENT WARNING FOR THIS EPISODE OF THE FAT FEMINIST WITCH: I will be discussing some personal experiences with fatphobia that I’ve encountered lately, and some of it is upsetting. If you’ve ever struggled with disordered eating or other issues with weight, food, medical malpractice associated with weight, suicidal ideation, fatphobia, and abuse, this could be a difficult episode for you. Be safe, even if that means not listening. I still love you!
This is a very personal episode, and doesn’t feature any witchcraft, spells, or spiritual tools. I had originally planned to include a segment about magick for fat people, but have decided to make that a seperate episode.
I used a lot of sources for research for this episode, and I totally encourage you all to check them out!
Want to learn more about fat positivity as a movement and life philosophy? The websites and activists have all helped me, and offer great explainations about common fat positive terms and ideas.
As always the opening and closing track on the episode is Back To The 90s (Douglas Mulvey AKA D-REX) / CC BY 4.0). It samples I Put a Spell on You by Screamin Jay Hawkins which, as I’ve said before, is the greatest song ever.
