Ep. 12 - A convo w/ Tess about Filipinx culture

Updated: Dec 21, 2021

@Onedwnmedia -- a Filipinx media platform -- has a satirical series called "Breaking the Tabo" (major points if you get the play on words) and in one of their episodes, they break down the rampant body shaming that happens in Filipinx culture.


That is just one small part of my socialization as a little girl. In this episode, my friend Tess and I talk more about our experiences in Filipinx culture, toxic messages we received as girls, and trying to find ways to change the harmful narratives we've grown up with.


***Just in case I have to clarify this, y'all know that Tess and I do not speak for all Filipinx folks.
