Gloria Lucas, Part 3 of 4 : A Chicana Girl Leading Women to Colonize the Collective Body of Her People
For part 3, I'm to redirect our focus a bit from Lucas and her Nalgona Positivity [Pride] by addressing concerns about the body positivity movement in general.
Am I not participating in collective action that is effectively harming the environment in spite of my self-professed intentions?
That said, imagine one who claims to speak out for colonized people by calling for collective social justice via individual “decolonization” of the body. Yet, in the same vein, imagine she's also promoting a lifestyle that logically necessitates increased demand for a supply of products derived from the poorer nation's natural resources. How's one to aid decolonization of those she claims to advocate for while simultaneously calling for more of their resources including increases in labor under unjust conditions?
