Goofing Off with Sofie Hagen

Read more

In this episode, we’re hanging out AKA goofing off with comedian and Happy Fat, Sofie Hagen!

CALL TO ACTION: Pool your pocket Change

From Sr. Producer Lynn: My friend Josie Naron has been pooling donations to a huge variety of organizations and activists doing anti-racist, anti-incarceration, and housing justice work. The idea is “pocket change,” like one dollar here, five dollars there, and then Josie pools all those small contributions together to make one significant donation to that day’s org. Even if you can’t donate to every pool, you can follow the orgs, you can pass along the pooling info; people have even been just tagging twitter celebs to retweet the pools and get more donations. It’s really cool.” 

Follow Josie @nosiejaron on Twitter for daily updates on ongoing and past pools, and join the TinyLetter for more information!

Sofie Hagen on fat activism and taking up space in a fatphobic world

Read more

Sofie Hagen is a Danish comedian who co-created the Guilty Feminist podcast with Deborah Frances White. Hagen is non-binary and uses pronouns she/they/he. Hagen is a fat acceptance campaigner and plus size fashion designer, who speaks candidly about our culture’s ingrained anti-fat bias and the subtle and overt ways society continues to marginalise and discriminate against fat people. 

In this episode of History Becomes Her, Hagen discusses her admiration for civil rights activist Rosa Parks. Hagen also shares how she got started in the fat acceptance movement and how people can unlearn their ingrained anti-fat bias. In her book Happy Fat Hagen writes about the reality of being fat in a world that wants you to take up less space. She talks about being spat on and having someone tell her, “if you weren’t so fat, I’d rape you.” Hagen wants to reclaim the word “fat” and live in a world built on self-acceptance and loving your body.

  • What it means to grow and have break throughs in fat liberation
  • Fat in three different languages
  • Slurs and the word "Fat"
  • Disagreement about the words overweight and morbidly obese
  • Micro-aggressions toward fat people and why these are just so wrong
  • Self-care and self-preservation as a fat woman
  • A discussion about how there are more raped and murdered women on TV than there are fat women.  Representation!!!!
  • Why thin allies need to open their mouths when people make fun of fat people
  • How they learned to love and appreciate their bodies
  • Sex. Guys, we talk a lot about sex!
  • Being fat in India

I learned a lot from these two amazing ladies.  Their vulnerability and laughter just made my day.  I hope you enjoy this conversation.

Joining Helen and Rosie in the studio this week is the brilliant Sofie Hagen. Sofie is a stand-up comedian, podcaster, author and activist. She's gigged in 28 countries so you've probably heard of her, but if not, you're in for a treat!

It takes a certain type of person to work in showbiz, and often it was clear from the start that they were destined to end up on stage. Daddy Look At Me takes the time to explore these scenarios with a guest every week.

Helen Bauer and Rosie Jones will probe the guest on the pivotal moments in their early life; from childhood, to romance, and everywhere in between, we want the highs and lows that make it so obvious that this craving for attention ensured our guest was a born entertainer.
