The Ozempic Discourse is Bad, Boring, and Blatantly Fatphobic

Stop normalizing the constant pursuit of thinness, you absolute weirdos

For all young, hip, city folk of a certain age, The Cut is an online Bible. My conversations regularly feature exhaustive discussions about their most recent articles. And when I scroll through all my friends’ Instagram, I see the “Liked By” tab. It’s like waving hello, over Instagram.
