I just watched an episode of Girlfriends Guide to Divorce where the main character, Abby, goes out with her friend Barbara, played by the fabulous Retta (Donna Mwagle on Parks and Rec). The night is supposed to be about getting Barbara a hot date. By the end of the episode, Abby has gotten upset when Barbara is getting the attention of a handsome suitor and end ups fat shaming, food shaming, health shaming her friend Barbara. Saying things like, "How do you know he is even interested in you" and "I may have issues with eating but at least I don't eat too much" and "I worry about your health". At first I was interested in where they would take this, but was quickly disappointed when Barbara leaves and the writers decided to write the remainder of the episode so that we feel bad for Abby while she gets the man that was seemingly interested in Barbara. I sat here dumfounded that I was supposed to feel sorry for her, while she embodied everything most thin, white women have done to me my whole life. Abby understood herself as the center of everyone's story in that scenario, while helping her friend she still wanted the attention, she was allowed to make comments about what they were eating and how ridiculous it was that a man might be interested in her fat and black friend. Growing up I was never just a friend to thin girls, I was the fat friend. I was the friend they could comment on my body about, they could refuse to acknowledge my differing experience, they could compare themselves to. I wasn't supposed to be happy, content, or even a full human. I wasn't allowed to have my own life in our friendship, our friendship was always about them. This still translates to most experiences I have with thin, white women today. Especially now as a fat and happy and confident woman. I'm seen as someone who has broken the system, I'm supposed to want to be them, but I don't, it not supposed to have the affection or desire of men, but I do, I'm not supposed to be able to eat what I want and still feel good in my body, I'm supposed to miserable like them, but I'm not. And I don't know why I even share this, because it's not about pointing the ***more below***
