Daily Helping for May 25th, 2023 – Desiree Dallagiacomo – Thighs Say

I clicked on this video entirely because of the title. Thighs Say. How much could thighs really say, I remember thinking to myself. As it turns out, our thighs can say a lot. In this piece, Desiree Dallagiacomo leads us through a litany of social norms, dangers, and traumas, all through the perspective of our thighs, and it is as beautiful as it is horrifying. And all I could think about while I listened to this piece was what will take for us all to just love our bodies? Why are there infinite ways to hate these vessels that from a biological perspective are nothing short of a miracle? It’s infuriating, and yet here we are. So yes. Thighs can say a lot. I can only hope that one day we can get to a point where the only things they have to say are positive and empowering.
