For this month’s FemTech Book Club we’ll be discussing “You Just Need to Lose Weight”: And 19 Other Myths About Fat People (Myths Made in America) by Aubrey Gordon
The co-host of the Maintenance Phase podcast and creator of Your Fat Friend, Aubrey Gordon, equips you with the facts to debunk common anti-fat myths and with tools to take action for fat justice.
In “You Just Need to Lose Weight,” Aubrey Gordon equips readers with the facts and figures to reframe myths about fatness in order to dismantle the anti-fat bias ingrained in how we think about and treat fat people. Bringing her dozen years of community organizing and training to bear, Gordon shares the rhetorical approaches she and other organizers employ to not only counter these pernicious myths, but to dismantle the anti-fat bias that so often underpin them.
