Maggie Dresses Up for Halloween.
Inspired by the original red-headed adventuring fatty, Hilda by Duane Bryers, Maggie gets dressed up for Halloween because that’s something fat people get to do. Even if Maggie’s body is different from Hilda’s, Halloween is a time for imagination and fun and that stuff doesn’t matter. Maggie has no obligation to add a qualifier of “fat ____” or “fatter _____” to her costume for the benefit of people who don’t seem to get that the whole purpose of Halloween is playing pretend. Those are the sorts of people who freak out whenever a character is portrayed by someone with the wrong body size, skin color, or gender but probably think nothing of appropriating cultural identities into generic mocking costumes by privileged people. Or sexual or body-size identities. They just want to police people they think ought to be marginalized, not the people trying to do the marginalization. Maggie will have none of that.
Part Eighteen in a Series of Maggie empowering herself and standing up to those who marginalize her.
