"What does it say about our culture that the desire for weight loss is considered a default feature of womanhood?"
When I came across these 20 words on page 137 of Roxane Gay's new book Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, I had to pause and and put the book down.
(Sidebar: If you haven't read Hunger yet, I highly recommend it. I will warn you though: parts of it are intense. But Roxane's writing is open, honest, and full of truth.)
Anyway, back to this question.
What DOES it say about our culture?
