In this episode, Chris and I discuss the sexualization of veganism and what a bummer it is that veganism often mimics mainstream ideas of beauty and fitness instead of carving out new territory (or at least that was the point I was trying to make), I express bad body feels, and we (mostly Chris) bemoan the ways veganism would be great except people. After that, I look at feminist critiques and rejections of veganism as well as vegan feminist responses to those ideas, and lastly I chat with Callie and Nichole from Vegan Warrior Princesses Attack! about the short feminist horror film “The Herd”.

NOTE: First, I am terrible at math and realized, when discussing my former weight, that I had implied I was overweight at 155 pounds. While I am not sure how much exactly I weighed, I was noticeably overweight enough to deal with regular criticism and "concern" from my family, my doctor, as well as comments from complete randos. However, I also don't mean to imply that I experienced life as a fat person.
