Book: Food Snobbery: An Intersectional Analysis of Fat, Feminism, Poverty, Disability & Health

I always forget to promote this, though I should. I published an extended essay that looked at the privilege of food snobs and how the reality of food and eating affects various groups: Food Snobbery: An Intersectional Analysis of Fat, Feminism, Poverty, Disability & Health. It’s been available on Amazon for some time now.

I wrote it because I was frustrated at the ignorance of people insisting that there was no excuse to not eat vegan, or eat ‘clean’, or eat keto, or whatever the trend of the day is.

I was also annoyed at a discussion I’d had on social media with someone about the fact that the more ‘ethical’ food shops tend to be inaccessible to disabled people, making them actually unethical businesses. That person said that I should campaign for smaller food shops to become accessible rather than shop in supermarkets. I asked what I should do for food in the meantime; she had no response.

People on low incomes face similar lines of attack. As do those who live in ‘food poor’ areas. As do those who are fat. This extended essay covers all of this, and more, and I’d love it if you read it.

It is available in print, including a large-print version, and on Kindle.
