I have a question. I watch ABC family a lot, and I've been thinking of starting to watch the show 'Huge', because it's a show about fat people, but it takes place at a weight loss camp, so I'm not sure if its actually fat friendly or not (even though the title image comes across as fat positive). If it's not at least 75% fat positive I have no interest in watching it. Do you or any of your followers watch Huge? Is it a safe show to watch?
So I marathoned Huge last summer and mostly really enjoyed it. There is a lot of diet talk and encouragement of weight loss. It’s all definitely presented in a critical way, and the main character is super not into the idea of losing weight. She doesn’t want to be there at all. There were portions of the show that were tough to watch and some stuff that had me cheering.
I would say that it is overall a fat posi show but there is still a buttload of fat negativity, diet talk, talk of eating disorders and weight loss.
We don’t give space to that kind of crap here, period the end. If you are Just That Desperate for an answer to your <s>uncritical regurgitation of fat-shaming bullshit</s> question, come off anon and ask me that on my blog and I can promise you an answer. I can’t promise it’ll be an answer you’ll like but it’ll be an answer. Jadelyn.tumblr.com/ask
