i dunno, when i was more pudgy, i would make fun of it around halloween and stuff, dress like a pizza chef, or a kirby. instead of going as ‘spiderman’ because that’s just uncomfortable, and if i cared what people think it would be more likely that they’re thinking ‘hey, there goes a fat spiderman.’ he has a right to his opinion, and people should be whatever the hell they want to be, but it would be funnier if larger people dressed up like larger characters, only because i did it i suppose. i’m also brown, so when i went as ‘hitman’ one year, i was the ‘brown hitman.’ is what it is, i had a fun time doing it, and i didn’t care what other people were saying about me being the brown version of characters i found to be interesting. he’s entitled to his opinion though, if he lashed out to us brown and even when white folks dress up as black characters, i’d probably think he has a point, and it would have been my first realization that someone was this annoyed by it. no matter what he’s still entitled to his opinion, as much as we’re entitled to disagree with his opinion. i’ll just consider it and move along.
