    Hey! Happy one year podcastiversary!
    On Trump body shaming -
    I agree with Karen that body shaming is inherently wrong. It is difficult to reconcile body shaming someone while also criticizing someone who body shames. However, Trump, who is here the receiver of shaming, has made some of the worst statements about women and other individuals from a position of power. He is able to spout this rhetoric on cable news programs, on stage at political rallies, and via twitter. I would normally be against body shaming, but in this sense, the population that is witnessing him use this verbiage is subverting his tactics and using it against him. We see this type of reaction all of the time in oppressed populations and it can be a very useful form of protest. Now, that opens the door to a very slippery slope of “tit for tat” style attacks and I realize ultimately that cannot be sustained. I only hope that these body shaming comments toward Trump, which mirrors his own behavior, will bring him to understand why body shaming is so damaging. But it’s Trump, so probably not…
