Margaret Cho: America Is Very Ageist, ‘Body Shaming’ Is ‘A Fascism Against Women’s Bodies’


Comedian and co-host of E!’s “Fashion Police,” Margaret Cho argued that the US is very ageist and “body shaming is…a fascism against women’s bodies” on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time.”

After host Bill Maher said, “[Y]ou do talk about how America is very ageist.” Cho responded, “It is.”

She later added, “[B]ody shaming is — I think it’s a fascism, it’s a fascism against women’s bodies. I’m a longtime survivor of eating disorders, so I know that you can be dragged back into the disease anyway. So, you know, I’m in remission now, because I’ve done a lot of work on it. But it’s hard.”
