Mind Your Own Plate

Ever had someone comment about how much you’re eating with a particular tone of disgust or fake surprise? If you’re a woman who puts anything more than child-size portions on her plate, the answer is probably yes. As a society, women are expected to be bird-like eaters who push two leaves of lettuce and a cherry tomato around their plates. (Thanks, diet culture.)

In this episode, I’m examining – and ranting about – why minding your own plate is probably the best idea. It’s complicated how we got to this tiny portions club in the first place. And how we’re going to collectively get out of it isn’t straightforward either. There are so many layers to this issue, many of which I don’t have an answer to.

One thing I do know? Plate-shaming someone ain’t gonna help.
