EP. 15 — Stephanie Yeboah

Activist, fashion blogger, and author Stephanie Yeboah joins Jameela this week to discuss fat acceptance, her dating life being a “cesspit,” skin-bleaching, the representation of fat women, the co-opting of the body positivity movement, and Stephanie’s new book Fattily Ever After: The Fat, Black Girls’ Guide to Living Life Unapologetically. 


IWEIGH-015-20200708-StephanieYeboah-ACv01-DYN.mp3   JAMEELA JAMIL [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of “I Weigh” with Jameela Jamil. I hope this finds you well. I’m fine. Nothing’s changed. Gone nowhere. Done nothing. I am nothing. I feel embarrassed doing the intros for these now because just I’ve, I’ve nothing new to report. And also, there’s so many more interesting and terrifying things happening in the news. So I guess myself has just been consumed by the outside. I wonder if you feel the same. Thank you so much for your lovely messages about Catherine Bohart’s episode last week, where we talked at length about mental health, in particular, OCD. I’ve received so many personal and loving messages and messages from people who’ve passed it on to family members who are struggling with the condition. And so I really, really appreciate the recommendations you send me. And I really want to know who you want me
