Will it betray my age if I confess not knowing what a "Livejournal" is, either? I completely missed, like, ALL of the internet from 2005 until 2012. Thankfully.

And 75,000 Bonus Points for use of the word "Crapulent". Ho-leeeeee sh*t.

I was in college at 23 with a bunch of 18 year olds and one of them became a friend who used one like all the time.

Maybe you should provide more examples than three characters who are kinda villain-esque and just happens to be fat. Fat-shaming would be more of another character treating them badly because of their weight. Should they create more characters with different body sizes? Maybe, I mean most of the cast are mutants so I don't see it as a big deal, but just having the majority being skinny is not enough to claim that a show is fat-shaming.

OT reply, just because it came up: I'unno, I genuinely don't enjoy social media and I think it only brings out the worst in people. When I, for one, am feeling desperate for attention from near-total strangers, I wear gaudy tights and play-fight with other grown men, for the amusement of young children and their half-drunk parents. Other people go online and tell everyone in the whole world exactly where they are at every second and what they're eating, watching, or jacking it to. People really care?

I mean, at least my way, people occasionally get hit with folding chairs. I'unno. If I didn't need FB to get bookings I wouldn't even bother. The whole "Look At Me!" culture we've fallen into is very vapid and disturbing, if you ask me.

Jeez; isn't having a retard as one of the main characters enough PCification? That superhero comic posted perfectly approximates my view here.

That's a harsh statement perhaps, but it's true.
Aren't forums full of the same type of people? :V As far as I'm concerned they're all one in the same.

I'm fat myself and haven't picked up on any "fat shaming". I don't even think they ever made any fat jokes...

Because I said about 2012 Michelangelo what a number of other people have said about him? It might not be the best approximation, but he sure isn't normal in the head.

Not wanting to start an argument or anything... but I'm sure that we have members on these boards who are all shapes and sizes. Real beauty comes from within, and a person's worth isn't determined by an arbirtary number on a scale.
I partially agree. Many people do put too much emphasis on weight in general as an abstract representation of health, and there are certainly many, many cases of people becoming feeble in the quest to be lean. It's sad that Ronda Rousey and Jeniffer Nicole Lee would not meet many people's standards of a "fit" woman.

That said, if we can chuck abstract terms like "weight" and "big" aside, and make clear that we're talking about high fat content, then no; it is not something that is healthy, and it's not something I feel like forgiving. Yes; social pressures that drive people to adopt a specific unhealthy body shape are deplorable, but society can also be too liberal, and the movement towards denying any inferiority of any sort among people is a clear case. If you're going to have trouble with my stairs and nearly break my chairs, and take up two seats on a bus, sorry, but you have a problem and ignoring it won't make it go away.

Honestly, I'm ashamed the term "fat-shaming" even exists. This show's decision to make Timothy fat sends an absolutely fine message to children: If you want to be athletic like your heroes, then get your fat ass up and take the job seriously. It's harsh; I know, but it's kind of a nice break from media that constantly gives children the false promise that everyone is wonderful, and that if you believe, you can achieve anything. Difficult hings get achieved through hard work and a sense of realism and willpower, and forgiving mediocrity does not instill those values.

I absolutely LOVE Mikey from the Nick toon. He's also my 5 year old's favorite character.
And congrats on your 'thug' status!!

When they caught Kirby in a cage in the warehouse, Mikey practically excitedly exclaimed loudly: "We did it, Don. We caught the Kirby Bat!" whilst gesturing like a grotesque monster. What is so amusing about catching April's dad Mikey? I felt it's so offensive to be joyfully partying when you entrapped your friend's own father.

- him blurting out about them dropping the mutagen all over the city. This one got me: he's so casually saying "Don't worry, don't worry, we'll get it all back" to April. As if the situation is like spilled milk or ice cream and we can all get it back. Like it's no big deal. Like April's dad turned into a bat is like not a serious issue at ALL. What the hell? It's not like they can change him back (atm). Didn't he think about April's feelings? Again, where's your common sense? Is your brain dead Mikey?

I mean.. is my fave turtle has gone beyond retarded and unlikeable now? I blame the horrible writers. -_-

Nick Mickey is straight up retarded, there are moments when he's brothers are in mortal danger and he keeps the doing stupid stuff, he never has a character moment , he's just a bunch of jokes thrown together, one of the reasons why i quit the show. I guess each mickey represents the time he's living in, which says a lot about this generation...

The 2k3 Mikey was funny at first but easily got annoying as time went on. OT Mikey and movie Mikey were probably my favorite versions of the character cuz as you just said, he was more versatile there and not too over the top. The only annoying thing with OT Mikey is his surfer/stoner type attitude, but at least he's more sensible and more laid back over the other versions.

Sadly yes, it gets to show some fat shamming. But of course people here will never accept it. Mikey is the chubby one and he gets treated like a idiot and incompetent most of the time.
