Being Alone

This segment was an absolute joke. Compensation!??

Love the podcast but that guest sounded so anti feminist.

Less than it could be

Earlier episodes had the benefit of Lauren, who has been an interesting and warm interviewer. However, the style of feminism isn’t in line with what I enjoy about Woman’s Hour, and unfortunately seems rather shallow, undeveloped and clamouring to be in-trend, rather than challenging and informative. The many interruptions doesn’t give the supportive feel these discussions deserve - I’ll stick to regular Woman’s Hour.

This 💪🏼

As someone who was 226lb a year ago, the amount of people that would tell me ‘you don’t need to lose weight, you’re fine as you are’. I’d never be able to find actually nice clothing and I started tailoring my own clothes! Yes I’ve lost weight now, health reasons (hEDS and the weight hammered my joints) but gosh, so many people tiptoe around fatphobia now. I was fat. I’m still, by bmi, overweight... but I’m no longer fat as I have a 28” waist but I certainly owned it whilst I was fat and put my foot down on people telling me I wasn’t.
If you’re not fully comfortable in your body, then change it and that’s fine. But if you’re comfortable enough to just say ‘I’m fat’ then more power to you as it was definitely a turning point in my mental health and self worth 🤘🏼
