On this episode we have T. and Ken. We discuss the phenomenon of gentrification and neoliberal identity politics that ignores Black people even as it displaces them.

The theory that T. discusses of how frumpiness works in fashion trend circles and how it works against women who aren’t considered conventionally attractive is taken from Amanda Mull’s article “The Myth of Pulling it Off.” https://nylon.com/articles/skinny-privilege-myth-pulling-it-off
