DON’T BE A KAREN: Constructive Ways to Use Your Voice
Entitlement is the believe that one is inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment. In Don’t Be A Karen, Chloe Hilliard addresses the pop culture origin of “Karen”, the catastrophe of race riots and lynchings, feminism vs. white feminism, the 53%, benefits of the patriarchy and how to be an advocate for all.
Chloe’s program is presented in a way that holds up a mirror and that will cause some to take offense. Chloe will only present this program in spaces that are willing to support open conversations.
F*** YOUR DIET
By the time Chloé Hilliard was 12, she wore a size 12—both shoe and dress—and stood over six feet tall. Fitting in was never an option. That didn’t stop her from trying. Cursed with a “slow metabolism,” “baby weight,” and “big bones,”—the fat trilogy—Chloe turned to fad diets, starvation, pills, and workouts, all of which failed.
Realizing that everything—from government policies to corporate capitalism—directly impacts our relationship with food and our waistlines, Chloé changed her outlook on herself and hopes others will do the same for themselves.
The perfect mix of cultural commentary, conspiracies, and confessions, F*ck Your Diet pokes fun at the all too familiar, misguided quest for better health, permanent weight loss, and a sense of self-worth.
