SummerBody Image, Eat the Rules, Self-Love

In this episode of Fearless Rebelle Radio, I chat with Lyndsey Averill and Viri Lieberman, the creators of the movie Fattitude – a documentary that exposes how popular culture fosters fat prejudice and then offers an alternative way of thinking – on fat acceptance, thin privilege and body positivity and why they created Fattitude to change our culture to eradicate size prejudice.



In this episode, we chat about:
  • The inspiration behind the movie Fattitude and why Lyndsey and Viri created it
  • Lyndsey and Viri’s personal experiences that led them to want to create this film
  • How diet culture and the beauty industry has co-opted “body positivity” for their capital gains
  • Whether weight loss and fat acceptance can go hand-in-hand
  • How the media’s representation of fat bodies perpetuates size discrimination
  • Why “health” is becoming the new guise for diet culture
  • The insidious ways fatphobia exists in our culture and why changing our language and words can contribute to it
  • What it means to have thin privilege and why it’s important to acknowledge that it exists
  • How you can support the film to bring it into film festivals and create cultural change
  • Plus so much more!
