The Identity of Weight

Last week I binged Shrill on Hulu, starring Aidy Bryant. It’s brilliant and funny and touching and relatable. What I didn’t like wasn’t that the lead character is overweight, but that so much time was spent on it. It made me look forward to the days when people (women) can just be, without having to talk about their struggles about how they’re perceived. When will we stop talking about weight? Ever?
