This month’s blog is focused on fatphobia in reality dating shows. I’ve been watching Season 2 of Love Is Blind on Netflix (don’t worry, there are no spoilers here!), where the premise of the show is to meet your match based on forming strong emotional connections, sight unseen. The participants talk to each other in “pods” through a frosted glass window, removing the distractions of physical appearances, sex appeal, etc.

How does the Fat Tax work when it comes to plus-sized clothing?
Essentially, the plus-sized consumer is charged more for an item in plus sizes when the same item produced in straight sizes sells for less.
Many brands try to justify this pricing by claiming that the item costs “more to produce” because of “all of the extra fabric” they need to make plus-sized garments.
