To win in Massachusetts, trans activists have adopted a counterintuitive strategy: leaning into the worst things their opponents say about them.

— Dee Rogers (she/her) is a volunteer for the Yes on 3 campaign in Massachusetts.

— Kasey Suffredini (he/him) is a Yes on Three co-chair and president of strategy at the campaign's national parent organization, Freedom for All Americans.

— David Broockman (he/him) is an assistant professor of political economy at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He is co-author of the paper "Durably reducing transphobia: A field experiment on door-to-door canvassing."

— Kelly Jenkins (she/her) is a teaching assistant in Wellesley, Mass. She hosts the series Kelly's Quest on the public access channel ActonTV.

— Keep Massachusetts Safe, the group seeking to repeal the state's public accommodations protections for transgender people, argues the existing law puts women at children at risk in places like public restrooms. However, a recent study by researchers at the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law found bathroom crime has not increased since these protections became law in 2016

Dr. Janean Anderson
Episode 67: Food - Beyond Diet Cultures Perspective
Today Dr. Anderson reflects on how people can expand their perspective of food. Diet culture and eating disorder voice lead people to think of food in limited ways. She discusses how food offers so much more than diet culture and eating disorder-perspective can. She talks about: * Ways diet culture narrows our thoughts on food * * Calculator model * Good/Bad food * Moralizing eating * Without diet culture, we can appreciate so much more about food * * How food is created, makes its way to our plates * What food does in our bodies * How food can be pleasurable, meaningful, and emotional * Food facilitating connection with others * Food passing along family traditions * Food as a part of cultural or religious practice * Preparing food as enjoyable itself * COVID and what’s really important about food * * Always, but even more so during the pandemic, people experience hunger, food insecurity by no fault of their own * Diet culture pressures people to make “good” choices. How does one do that when you can’t access all foods, enough foods, or don’t have food available consistently? * Food as part of an act of service * * Food can be a way we look after our fellow people. If you have the means, support local organizations, people in your community who are struggling right now.
