If your American mind can translate the British spellings and your delicate sensibilities can handle a few curse words, this blog post by Ramona is an important reminder of the way we forget to criticize how we have come to many of our personal and societal views about the morality of food, health and body size. Spoiler alert: Racism, classism and sexism all play a role, even if you are thinking ‘but not for me!’ Yes, for you. And me.
The writer quotes food blogger Miss South and I think these words are worth reading a few times.
What you eat may have an impact on your dietary fibre, but it has bugger all to do with your moral fibre. It’s patronising and reductive to suggest otherwise and to focus on the actions of an individual, rather than those of the food industry, helps no one and hinders many, while causing massive divisions in society.
