In this killer ep, Laura is joined by Imogen Fox, aka @the_feeding_of_the_fox.

In this episode they deep dive into:

✨ Holding ourselves back because of our bodies + how to feel empowered to have more autonomy over our bodies ✨ The problems with access to sex ed. (+ healthcare as a whole) when in a disabled body ✨ Our weird way of valuing worth + productivity in our culture ✨ The Social Model of Disability, rather than the medical model which considers things to be 'wrong' with a person ✨ The massive head-mess that can come when recovering from an ED, whilst also receiving nutrition through a feeding tube ✨ How people with more privilege can leverage their privilege to support disabled people

As an FYI, Imogen recommended that if you guys want to donate to a charity, to make sure that you know it's run BY and FOR disabled people. Lots of charities that work 'on behalf of' seriously miss the mark in terms of what those marginalised people actually need or want because of their lack of lived experience. Direct involvement is imperative and whilst it might feel like donating to specific impairment charities is useful, often that money doesn't reach any actual people so that's always worth keeping in mind. If you funds are limited, paying someone who's work you know and respect would always be preferable to donating to charity.
