The fat girl trope has to die and remain dead. It’s overused, abused, and highly flawed.
You didn’t read the title incorrectly. Fat girls actually have lives. It’s true and we do. We’re living and breathing organisms that are productive, set out to do shit and get shit done. We don’t spend 10 hours a day looking into a well made IKEA mirror, trying to forcibly cut off the fat on our stomachs with a rusted silver knife. We have fucking lives.
Growing up I’ve always been a fat girl, my weight was and still is the center of most family discussions. My young life has also been plagued by Adultification bias. Due to physical characteristics that African Americans share; a narrative has been created that depicts black children as looking and acting older than their actual ages. This is Adultification bias.
