SHIT IS REAL. SHIT IS HARD. Here we are. Episode 17 of Bad Fat Broads.
Note: This episode was (obviously) recorded prior to the results of the U.S. election. Disappointed, disbelief, angry, scared, sad, unsurprised - a short list of words that don't even begin to describe the emotions we're experiencing. I can't pretend to write this episode guide in a pre-election mindset, so I apologize if I seem a little extra unimpressed by our garbage fire antics this week. Our next episode guide is going to be a little more robust and full of actionable ideas, reading material, safety suggestions and encouragement. In the meantime, here's a note from each of us to you:
KC: "We love you. Keep breathing."
Ariel: "We love you. If you did this, I don't like you and I wanna fight you. If you didn't and you need my help, I'm here for you."
As always, Bad Fat Broads remains an intersectional podcast dedicated to the liberation of all people. We stand in solidarity with everyone who will be negatively affected by this outcome. And as we've said before - anyone who takes issue with this can take a hike, get the fuck on, etc.
Tim, we guess. Now more than ever, it's time out for this basic-ass analysis and people with privilege being the spokesperson for a excluded population. This, like the celebration of the off-duty plus model that doesn't wear plus size clothes, is a snoozefest. We're over it.
Boohoo could have kept this. Simply Be can keep their dwindling selection. ASOS Curve can keep the stale, repetitive collection.
We are here for you. We support you. We don't always have the answers, but we are here to listen. This shit? It's hard. Bodies are hard. I got nothing.
We apologize for the mild sound issues in this episode - we're navigating some equipment related difficulties. Stick around until the very very end for a fun Easter Egg (yes, I know I told you where the egg is, so it's not much of a hunt. It's more like an extra scene at the end of a Marvel movie, I suppose).
