Introduction

Hi. I’m Tessa.

I decided to start this blog as a way to chronicle the overlap of my interests in film and fat acceptance (and the acceptance of other types of bodies that aren’t the default subject of movies, if I end up feeling ambitious). I’m not sure where it’s going just yet, but basically it’s here for me to share my thoughts on fat characters in the movies that I watch. Some are movies I intentionally view because of their fat characters; others are coincidental.

I’m also doing this as a way to learn more about film studies and film criticism; if you want to read the thoughts of seasoned professionals, I recommend the Dissolve.

I’m also open to submissions: if you have thoughts you would like to share on fat people in movies.  I’m writing from the perspective of a white, college-educated, able-bodied, genderqueer FAAB USian, so diverse voices are very welcome.  Drop me a line!
