To the writers of ”Insatiable”
"I have never seen the real life of a fat person on screen. I have only seen fat stories written by thin writers, acted by thin actors, directed by thin directors. At every turn, thin people control the stories about fatness that are told on the biggest stages, amplified with the biggest speakers, broadcast with the strongest antennae. And often, they tell the stories that make them feel best: stories that lift thinness up not as one of many natural body types, but as a badge of honor, earned only by those strong and smart enough to tame the wilds of their bodies."
