>even fat girls won't play fatgirls

Must underrepresented demographic in roleplaying games?

I've seen old ladies, fat men, half-motorcycles, and semi-animated goldfish bowls, but I've never seen someone play a fat girl.

Why would you want to RP a fat person, outside erp and something like a Dwarf or Ogre?

If you are an adventurer chances are you are somewhat muscular and do not have all the time of the world to just eat so it makes sense to never play as a fat.

I've never seen a fatman played either.

Most games are D&D or some kind of cyberpunk of some variety. With only a handful of exceptions, those games are about physically superior people doing amazing and cool things and going on long walks with goblin slayin' thrown in.

Fat people do not do these things. If they did, they wouldn't be fat.

I've played pointedly...chunky male characters before. But we're talking seth rogan/jack black fat, and they were either casters or face rogues.

1. Truly fat-fat american level fatness precludes adventuring. "Fat" male characters tend to be strongfat, like a bear.

2. Male players seldom play female characters, so female characters are rare. By the numbers, you're not likely to see an uncommon variation of an already uncommon character.

When female players exist, they tend to get WAY too invested their characters and basically play a sparkly version of themselves; thus all the elves and half-drow nymphs. They don't tolerate their precious character being hurt or failing in any way.

While a guy can be strongfat, we don't associate women with strongfat anymore. An athletic woman is either ultra-trim or buxom/thick.

Fat-fatness is also...just sad. It represents a terminal lack of self-control and self-respect. Especially in a girl. A girl has had it drilled into them that their social value is directly linked to their wasteline; a guy has the excuse that no one pressured him to stay/get skinny in his adolescence.

The fat girl is also likely to be a jiggling lard tub made of fat with a few bones and organs drifting about inside. And without a male metabolism, and with her stupid emotional eating, she's probably never goibg to be a healthy weight.

The sense of humour is a defense mechanism - well, at least for me it is. I don't want to show people how much I truly loathe myself, nor do I want them to feel uncomfortable around me.

Hence I've lost 10 kg this year. I hope to get below 100 kg by the end of it. I'm 25 years old. I would very much like to be thought pretty. Fat chance, unless I get this weight off me.

Honestly, that sounds like it has more to do with the "high school" part than the "fat girl" part. People have all manner of emotional issues around then, and sometimes it manifests as a massive self-esteem issue.

I played an Omniscient in Fates Worse Than Death once. It's an obscure alternative cyberpunk RPG with an amazing setting and really shitty mechanics, Omniscients are basically a gang of rich paranoids who are obsessed to the point of addiction with sensory augmentation. They want to know everything about everything always (they actually bought shares in spy satellites they can temporarily connect their bionic eyes to when they want). Anyway, because their senses are so good, they tend to be "fond" of all the finer things in life (partly because they enjoy them a lot more, partly because everything that isn't fine is completely disgusting to them). Their stereotypical look is an incredibly obese man/woman reeking of perfume to high heaven dressed in fine silks and complaining about the noise, and by god, did I play to that stereotype.

And it was awesome.
