Gary hasn’t lost an ounce of weight in the past four years. That means that he sees himself on TV and thinks, “Yep, lookin’ good.”

Yikes, talk about fat-shaming. I feel sad when one of the most public figures of feminism is espousing the marginalization of others, especially given that intersectionality is not a new concept. I feel sad when one of the most public figures of feminism has repeatedly shown the unwillingness to check her own paradigms, and when the example she sets is amplified across a movement that has always struggled to understand intersectionality, to the point that some can no longer identify with the larger feminist movement. At this point, I’m too tired to feel angry.
When I took Intro to Feminism, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, my professor was careful to stress the importance of intersectionality. I wonder how long it’ll take before the ideas of the ivory tower become reality.
