Episode 7: What’s the difference between Fat and Superfat?

The fat positive movement is bigger than ever, and it’s starting to get noticed by mainstream media. Fatshion bloggers and fat activists are building real bridges to mainstream culture, and the benefits to fat people are incredible. Unfortunately, though, in some spaces fat-positivity doesn’t reach those who are outside of regular plus sizing.

We call these people Superfats, and today on the show, you’re going to hear from two of us! I’m tackling this subject with my friend Alison Zwecker (you may remember her from the Good Fatty show) and we’re talking about the experiences of very fat people in the fat pos community and in the world. Mostly we’re talking about access and visibility, and the ways that fat advocates and allies can invite Superfats to the table.

The music in today’s show is by our friend, the very talented young DJ Citizen Starcrusher. His new album, Goodbye Halcyon Days is now out! Go to https://cstarcrusher.bandcamp.com/ to listen to samples and give him your money.

  1. Thanks SO MUCH for this thought-provoking podcast. In the end, acceptance (like forgiveness) must be absolute. Exclusions simply cannot be. Responses which are based on one’s own personal experiences rather than the full appreciation of others’ experiences are flawed and incomprehensive.
