Why is no one talking about: The patriarchy in cyberbullying and skin-shaming? Wellness inclusivity advocate Katie Sturino explores

June 8, 2022

Welcome to our new series, “Why is no one talking about,” where experts and insiders cover unexplored (sometimes taboo) hot takes on mind, body, food and—of course—skin. For this debut episode in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month (May), body acceptance advocate Katie Sturino explores the repercussions of putting herself out there—only to get “barf emoji-ed” on by a male contingent. Listen as Katie and her guest, Amelia Diamond (Man Repeller, The New York Times), break down confronting toxic men, elevating the skin-positivity movement, and keeping your social media bully-free.
