From a cultural perspective, media analysis of fat shaming allows us to address the body stratification that societies have produced, that is, what now is generally known as a somatic order. The entry analyzes the cultural effects of normalization and body politics.

From a cultural perspective, media analysis of fat shaming allows us to address the body stratification that societies have produced, that is, what now is generally known as a somatic order. The entry analyzes the cultural effects of normalization and body politics.
