Tiptree Honor Listed Short Story

This is a story about a common problem in society -- fat shaming. This is especially a problem for women, both white and of color, and for teens who lack self-confidence and easily fall prey to ads and movie portrayals. With satirical condemnation of society and media reactions, this story portrays how internalizing the perceived norms of "feminine" leads to low self-esteem.

This story was originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Nov/Dec 2017.
