I don’t want there to be a fat disney princess. I just don’t think that body type would work very well with the beautiful “Disney princess style.” She just wouldn’t be as beautiful.
The more I think about it the more I kinda agree. Instead of a “fat” princess, why not a more curvy one, Disney movies have already had more fuller women such as Nani from Lilo and Stitch, so why not have a Princess with that bodytype instead of full on “fat”?
Instead of why not, instead ask: why is it important to you that the princess be “curvy” instead of fat? I’m not kidding; instead of letting your brain do the knee-jerk “fat people can’t/shouldn’t be famous/liked/pretty/active/role-models,” think about it for a minute.
Why do you assume fat people don’t also want to be represented in movies?
By valuing/promoting one body type over another (curvy rather than fat), aren’t you doing the exact same thing people do when they say all characters should be very thin?
What is wrong with “full on” fat? What about this scares you/bothers you/thinks will be more problematic for children to see than princesses who have heads bigger than their waists?
Why, honestly, do you think curvy is better than fat? Do you think 100% of all “curvy” people are healthy? Do you think 100% of all “fat” people are unhealthy? This can’t be true, so doesn’t this mean you’re really relying here on what body typesyou find more aesthetically pleasing?
Why can’t we have curvy and fat princesses? Why are they all the exact same size? Indeed, many questions to be answered today.
