MH - Two Piece and a Biscuit by Grudge-Glamorous MH - Two Piece and a Biscuit by Grudge-Glamorous
Dear Society,

It seems that you are still teaching people that anything larger than a size 2 is grossly fat and disgusting. I know this because three different people have told me that this illustration of my design for a Skull Shores Operetta is "fat," with negative connotation. Granted, two of those three are under thirteen and shouldn't be on DeviantArt ANYWAY, but I digress. My point is, society, darling;

STOP TEACHING PEOPLE TO BASE THEIR PERCEPTION AND OPINION OF SOMEONES' SELF-WORTH ON THEIR SIZE. OR RACIAL BACKGROUND. OR SEXUALITY. OR ANYTHING THAT ISN'T EXPERIENCE WITH THAT PERSON.

I hope you shape up, Society. I'm tired of dealing with your shit.

Sincerely, Me.

She looks nice here. a lot people make characters chubby, and that's ok. it's when they're like  9000+lbs that it gets creepy.
plus I'm 11 and I think it's good to make artwork like this because it shows that people can find beauty in any shape or form.

when i created my accont i was under thirteen... , anywayz i don't think being fat is bad i don't know if it's because of growing in a black family where every gurls have hips and butt and boobs and even more but i think curves aren't a bad think at all , i don't think somebody canbe ugly becaus of his fatness i think pplz can be ugly because that is the way they see themself and thts all .
i know thats not relly the point of this art but i wanted to tell what i think

The web-series teaches acceptance regardless of how someone looks. Frankie and Lagoona are the voices of reason. Also, the first thing that goes from a dead body is flesh. Hence "no fat chicks," because they are supernatural beings. They can look however the **** they want. There is still a positive message.

God you're such an unpleasant person. Some one makes a fat operetta and somehow your mind can't take it. They literally have a skeleton with breasts and you're trying to claim "REALISTICCNESS!11!'. Calm down, it's just a drawing.

umm, what are you even trying to say?

"umm" what are you not getting?

Key phrases; Teaches Acceptance, Flesh decays from a dead body, Supernatural beings.

The series even has a stop bullying campaign and brings awareness to many other very good causes, but all some people can focus on is how the characters look.

Every day I get more proof for my hypotheses that people would be bored if they're not over-analyzing.

umm.

ok

you have a VERY selective way of discerning what constitutes acceptance. or perhaps very very poor reading comprehension skills.

things we can agree on: monster high as a franchise is trying to promote acceptance.

things we disagree on, or clearly you have a poor way of sharing your thoughts on: inclusion and promotion of body types that aren't stick skinny.

if you're trying to tell me that i'm somehow shallow because i want people to stop looking at fat people and immediately assuming that they're ugly, unattractive, or somehow unworthy of existing, then you can't make ANY sort of claim that you care more about the "message" of monster high, since clearly, your version of acceptance has conditions.

if you're trying to say how you cant believe that people would try to shame certain bodies and body types in this franchise, wherein one of the main, overriding messages is acceptance and self-love, then your thoughts are muddled and messy, and you should streamline and clarify your points before you try sharing them, lest people (like me) get confused.

and that whole little point you're trying to make about "decaying bodies being skinny" is rather pointless in this particular setting, because:

1) Operetta is not an undead, or made of decaying flesh. She's canonically just "Daughter of the Phantom of the Opera," not "zombie daughter of the phantom of the opera."

2) The designs for monster high don't really pay attention to believability or dabble in "realism" too often.

and if you think i'm "overanalyzing," it's because you poorly presented your case, not because i'm "bored."
