Why Fatphobia is Still a Problem Onscreen



Today’s film, TV and cultural conversations are making big strides in addressing a number of long-entrenched prejudices, so why do many people still act like it’s okay to mock, lecture or belittle fat people? Fatphobia is so normalized and pervasive in our society that we might not even see all the ways it manifests. Today, at last, some more nuanced stories are destigmatizing and centering fat characters in all their complexity -- and creators like Shrill’s Aidy Bryant and Lindy West are even reclaiming the word 'fat' itself.
