‘Fat Talk’ is a kind of body shaming and contributes to body dissatisfaction, exemplified by the phrase, “I’m fat.” The contemporary body is one under scrutiny from all angles. Women’s bodies exist in a fluctuation of attractiveness and ugliness, depending on what’s in fashion. Fat Talk addresses the self-shame and self-celebration that comes from these fluctuating patterns.
