The Nation: Thinspiration, masturbation, and more

The Nation: Thinspiration, masturbation, and more

Here are the pieces I wrote in the second of two weeks in April that I spent guest blogging at The Nation:

Chrissy Amphlett’s Pleasure Anthem, about the death of the woman who recorded the still-shocking classic “I Touch Myself.”

The ‘Thinspiration’Behind an Impossible Beauty Ideal, about a disturbing social media trend, and what it tells us about our cultural obsession with thinness.

Fat-Shaming All Around Us, about how we talk to and about fat people.

A Pill for Equal Abortion Access, about Australia’s decision to subsidise the abortion pill.
