Actually FEMALE-bodied Stars w/ Cellulite

After I serve up special audio essay (Henry Kissinger had a Boob Job!) Zack Ford and I discuss BODIES. How do we talk about bodies? What is intersexuality? What are some challenges transgender people face? Can a man have an abortion? We lay it all out on the table and just talk about all our hesitations and yet curiosities with bodies, mixed with some recent news.  Take a listen, and then tell us your hangups and joys when it comes to bodies!

Peterson and Zack are here to talk about that big bad issue that no one likes to be reminded of: body image. Body image issues affect all of us, but there are definitely some interesting and unique issues that arise in the LGB and T communities. In this week’s episode, we both talk about our own struggles with body image, we discuss different research that has come out about queer body issues, and we offer our own ideas about how we got where we are and where we’re going. We also invite listeners to share their own stories and struggles so we can build solidarity in our community.
