Fat funny friend by Maddie Zahm
I just listened to the YT link and am in tears. i am the designated ugly fat friend. i feel so seen and so sad.
It’s a beautiful song but she’s promoting her own weight loss on her Instagram. IMO that is not the best example for young fat girls who seem to be the target audience for this song.
As someone the same age as her who struggles with the discrimination that comes with fatness, it makes me feel some type of way to see my life experiences be reflected by someone who very likely put herself through severe restriction to not “have” to be a part of the community.
Idk-I just listened to it bc of this post and was excited (more representation yay!) but then I saw how much weight she has lost and kinda confused she still released this. Sorry to be such a buzzkill. I thought I’d just put this perspective out there in case anyone had the same reaciton as me to her insta.
Yeah thatis a good pointl. I’m sure she’s under a ton of pressure in the industry to look a certain way... I have nothing against individual weight loss and bodies naturally change in all types of ways, but its not gonna happen in any healthy way if her music label has something to do with it.
Opened YT and now I'm sobbing 👍
Right in the feels
i really do love this song. i relate so much. It's me. I'm going on vacation with all my skinny friends and I'm definitely gonna be looked at as the DUFF.
I love this song... it struck a chord with me too. very emotional listening to this!
