Question 5 on Episode 8 of Anarcho Agony Aunts
‘’What is the difference between a healthy desire to look attractive and an unhealthy desire to conform to fucked up gendered racialised beauty standards? Is wanting to get laid a bad reason to work out/lose weight? I have a friend (legit) who ignores his health and hygiene, and uses the fact that beauty norms are constructed and oppressive as justification. It wouldn't be an issue, but he clearly is actually just trying to repress some things. How can I convince him that it is possible to be liberated and want to look attractive?’’
