Have you found yourself being fatphobic? If so, your problem is problematic.
Over the last year, we’ve discovered that white supremacists have purposefully inserted racist mechanisms into America’s structures so they’ll work in oppressive ways.
Perplexingly, we’ve been told such by those structures’ heads, as they refuse to pinpoint the levers so that any might be changed.

Hanna knows about the history of marketing, racially specific, starting around 1721. Apparently, even back then, people wanted to have Instagram-worthy naked silhouettes — roughly 100 years before the first permanent photographic image was made.
Perhaps the pressure came from drawings with sticks on trees.
