Episode 33: Holiday Table Advocacy–How to Stand Up to Fatphobia at Your Holiday Table

Ah, the holiday meal. Who doesn’t love turkey and mashed potatoes and pie and your great aunt Laura side-eying you for eating said pie? You go along to get a long,  try not to hope Laura catches laryngitis, and you come out of your holiday gathering only a little worse for wear. But why should you have to suffer silently through food and body judgment at the holiday table? In today’s episode I’m talking about the gentle holiday table advocacy you can do at your gatherings that probably won’t cause fights. Probably. Your mileage may vary.

Thanks so much to Starcrusher for the music you heard on today’s show and the music you’re hearing right now. Hear more at cstarcrusher.bandcamp.com.

And thank you to our Patreon patrons. If you guys haven’t heard, Patreon has rolled back those fee changes you probably got an email about last week. They realized that they made some mistakes and disproportionately burdened some patrons, so they are not instituting that new fee structure after all. If you were worried about that, you can rest easy, and I thank you for your continued support.

With all that said, our Patreon patron of the day is Sara. Thank you Sara for your support! Wouldn’t be able to do this without you. If you’d like to support The Fat Lip, go to patreon.com/thefatlip to find out how.
