The Fat Chick is Pondering again.....

Well, I am taking a little time off of work and, for the first time in months, I have spent all day at home alone. And when I spend all day at home alone I start thinking about all kinds of crazy things. "And what crazy things are you thinking?" you may ask......

Well, I spent a good chunk of the day catching up on shows that have been saved on my DVR for far too long. In the numerous hours of TV watching I did today, I noticed something - most of the "heavier" women in TV are the "best friends" or secretary or some secondary character. Why is that? Is there some hidden rule that fat chicks are the freakin' comic relief? OK, what prompted this was watching Criminal Minds....... Garcia (can't remember her first name) is the computer/technical specialist and I love her!! She is great! She has her own sense of style and isn't afraid to be a little "out there" and I LOVE THAT!! But as I watch different shows I continue to notice that this seems to be a recurring theme.... Criminal Minds, Samantha who? and October Road to name a few. It seems like my fellow fat sisters fall into what I like to call The Santa Syndrome.

"Hey, Fat Chick, what the heck is The Santa Syndrome?" You are probably asking yourself. Think about Santa - fat guy, red suit with fur trim, always jolly and ho ho ho'ing all the time - that is either Santa or a few of my gay friends but for this purpose, it is SANTA. This seems to be the general idea of fat (heavy, overweight, plump whatever you want to call it) women in Hollywood. Does this sound like the fat chicks that you know? I mean, I am a generally happy woman but there are times when this fat chick gets mad and wants to throw her weight around........ STOP LAUGHING, you know what I am saying! And when you take into consideration the way that we are treated by society, Can you blame us for being pissed off? I don't see how anyone could. Don't get me wrong, I love Santa. He brings us presents and plays a huge role in the best time of the year! But why aren't fat dudes treated in the same way? But why would I expect women to be treated equally to men in this area? We aren't treated the same in any other area.

Oh well, enough pondering for now. Time to go do something mindless.....

That's it... This "Fat Chick" seriously needs to throw her weight around, too! I am almost never the happy-go-lucky comic relief in any situation. Usually, I am the black rain cloud waiting to unleash the heavens of pessimism in every situation. Goddess protect any little waif that get in my way! Oh yeah, you skinny bitches - go eat a fucking cheeseburger!
