Racebent/American version of My Mad Fat Diary

Gabourey Sidibe as Rachel

Octavia Spencer as Rachels mom

Andre Braugher as Kester

Amandla Stenberg as Tix

Naya Rivera as Chloe

Sinqua Walls as Finn

Evan Ross as Archie

Ellen Wong as Izzy

Tyler Posey as Chop

The thing I like most about racebending is that certain themes and messages change when certain characters races are changed. I think in MMFD there is a narrative about self care, self esteem, self actualization, and self acceptance that you don’t see with black women in media.

We don’t tell black girls that it’s ok to be hurt sometimes. We don’t help heal the ones who hurt. We just tell them to get over it. 

MTV needs to make this happen. 

AYYYYEEE I could be so behind this. MMFD having an all white cast was one of the ways it fails as a show. So if MTV were to cast some POC for the main characters especially the female lead, now THAT would be really interesting. That has potential to be really awesome!

I am totally into this! Even though it would never happen!

INTO IT.

100% the only way i would ever get behind the idea of an americanized version.

SAME!

You guys do realize THIS SHOW WAS BASED OFF OF A REAL HUMAN? THAT RAE WAS A PERSON AND SHE DID EVERYTHING ACCURATELY. So fucking sorry if things don’t play out the way you like. But, ya know, being accurate means nothing to this generation.

And you do realize that this is also an important thing for people of color, especially fat people of color who have survived eating disorders but have no representation?

God forbid we get some diversity in stories…

……

Do you not understand that she just happened to not be around any people of color?

It has nothing to do with diversity or being discriminated against.

It has everything to do with being accurate to her story.

Which is why they racebent the cast, and said plainly that this was a shortcoming that can be rectified IF adapted into an American version, with more poc.

I dont know why this is an argument.

I also literally do not know why racebending a show is insulting at all to the original show. Like why does it matter that she was a real person, this is a fancast??? 

Fucking hell. There will never be a racebent fancast without some white person whitesplaining what a grievous injustice it is.

"My Fat Mad Teenage Diary" was autobiographical. "My Mad Fat Diary" was a fictionalized adaptation of that autobiography, so we’ve already left the world of "but that’s not what happened!" Frankly, even the most faithful autobiographical play will be a little fictionalized, but this show was never meant as strict autobiography.

Now, MTV wants to make a US adaptation. You know where the events of the story didn’t take place? The United States. The producers are OBVIOUSLY taking liberties with the story that served as the shows inspiration. What’s wrong with them considering other changes? And especially what’s wrong with people imagining other changes?

White people are taught to “not see race” but really that just means we are taught to see our whiteness as universal. We are so used to having our stories told that the mere idea of relating to a story about someone who isn’t white strikes us with deep loathing. THAT is why white people are so eager to shout down fans just imagining media that represents them. Because white people are convinced we already DO represent them. And “accuracy” is about as far away from that dynamic as possible.

YES! The magic that adding cheese to Elio’s is one of the most under appreciated wonders of modern civilization. It’s startling just how much of a difference it can make.

This Whole Foods pizza wasn’t even trying. It was one of the ones they prep in the store, and it used to be less than I’d like but still with the range of acceptability. Lately they’ve been more sauce than cheese and that is desperately not right. I don’t know they are being cheap or moralistic or both. But tonight it was half off, giving me plenty of savings to spend on a tub of mozzarella that should’ve been on the pie in the first place.

For the record, this was definitely a pizza I wish I had someone to share it with.

One of them is actually a pair of pink SHORTS! That are 46” so they actually fit me unlike the stupid orange shorts I got last summer that I hardly wear because they aren’t quite right.

Whole Foods tried skimping on the cheese on their take & bake pizza, but I fixed that. #ErrOnTheSideOfCheese

What $500 at the GAP looks like. Ya know. If you had a test or something.

Also what “going WAY too long without getting new clothes then lucking into a 40% off sale” looks like.

so disgusting sorry but ur gonna die you need to lose weight

LAUGHS SUPER HARD DIRECTLY IN YOUR FACE

but you fucking FOLLOW ME THO

image

you’re trying to talk shit while you FOLLOW ME ADORINGLY

lol let’s not…

This woman is a fucking moron. I myself have been following her and reading her bullshit on a daily basis. She’s for mysandry, female supremacy, and is the largest hypocrite I’ve met on the internet which is a feat.

>Says to men “Check your privilege”
>Eats like a farm animal

Equality not female supremacy

Then stop fucking following her, you fat-shaming dingleshit.

Oh and mysandry isn’t real, dude. Go cry into your fedora collection.

i’m DDDYYYYIIINNNNNNNGGGGGG

I just scared my dog from laughing so fucking hard

1. You’re an ableist shit 

2. you’re a fat shaming useless piece of garbage

3. misandry is the word you were looking for, and it’s as real as unicorns hun. YOU CANNOT, OPPRESS, YOUR OWN, OPPRESSORS, YOUR IGNORANT LITTLE SHIT

4. female supremacy? yes because that’s a terrible idea given we live in a male dominated world, and have since FOREVER. I mean jesus, the fucking hypocrisy of THAT! Also it’s called empowering women to a place of equality, not a god damned hostile take over, AND ARE YOU REALLY THAT SCARED OF WOMEN THAT YOU FEAR THIS IS A LEGIT PROBLEM?!!?!?

5. yes i do say check your privilege, MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY CHECKING YOURS SINCE CLEARING YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND THE MERE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF WHAT PRIVILEGE AND OPPRESSION EVEN MEAN

6. Please, for all that is good and holy, type out and EXACT menu of what i ate this past week. RIGHT FUCKING NOW. 

Because guess what? I know exactly what I ate. And whether I ate a lot or a little, it wouldn’t even matter because it’s my body and NOT YOURS 

I mean, why are you so fixated on me? Do you have some twisted obsession? I really think you need to seek some help with this matter, because no one I know would bother even checking the blogs of people they don’t care for, but you’ve admitted to following me around like some love sick pup dog, and frankly I think it’s desperately sad and utterly pathetic. 

Scoot along pooch, the cool kids don’t need your bad vibes. 

I like how this guy’s blog is almost exclusively BBW porn, and yet he criticizes her for eating “like a farm animal”. soooo you wanna fuck fat girls but as soon as they have any pesky opinions and thoughts, you revert to tired ass fat jokes and crying about “mysandry”. k.

I mostly stick to criticizing fat admirers that merely think they aren’t enforcing fat stigmatization and thin privilege, but its worth remembering there is BIG group of “fat admirers” who literally and openly only see fat women as sex objects AND who don’t merely participate in fat shaming but are among its most enthusiastic enforcers. There is little hope to shame them into not acting like assholes because acting like assholes is their sole personality trait.

"Here’s the deal: Hall’s article is about her own lack of fundamental understanding. But it’s also about her discomfort with a tool (that’d be fat acceptance) lots of fat people use to feel good about themselves — or even to just not hate themselves 24/7, which is — honestly and tragically — a very real challenge for many fat folks. She doesn’t understand it because she can’t conceive of fat people who don’t hate themselves. And she probably wishes we’d stop with the self-esteem and get back to loathing ourselves for our own good.

That’s not generous in the slightest, I know. But I don’t have to be generous to people who threaten me. And, make no mistake, when Hall unexaminedly equates being fat to having some sort of eating addiction (without any acknowledgment that there are lots of reasons people may be fat including plain old variation in bodies), she threatens me. She threatens all fat people and tries to make us into medical conditions. She portrays us as being sick and addicted and out of control and she does so with no acknowledgment that bodies are sometimes just different.” -Marianne Kirby

This is an actual quote from right-wing hero of the moment and millionaire outlaw rancher Cliven Bundy in a feature in The New York Times. Note the tense he uses. “Are they” not “were they”.

Yes because every white males is an outlaw rancher from Texas
ugh stop generalizing white males

Oh, no! A TiA has appeared with the expected total lack of reading comprehension!
