What bothers me about the criticism of Grace from the Peloton ad is that if you give a crap about yourself and your health, looking like Grace isn’t that hard (especially if you are more than just poor). She’s not some freakishly low weight, as portrayed by most, it’s just that our ideas have been so skewed by everyone becoming so large that anyone at a normal weight is seen as aberrant.
I know what the studies say. Frankly, I don’t give a shit. Yes, there are structural problems and all that. You can still choose how you organize your life and how you treat your own body.
People hate Grace because they know she’s what they could be if it weren’t easier just to whine and eat another cronut.
