Body rep we need in the show (an extensive list bc I care about this a lot)
- Plus sized demigods. bUt tHeY hAvE tO tRaIn aLl tHe tImE. News flash, plus sized people can be fit and training doesn’t always equate to weight loss
- Medium sized demigods. Not everyone is naturally skinny. Show us 14 year olds who wear size 10 pants. There is shockingly little rep of just medium size people and as a medium person myself it hurts
- Buff and muscular girls. Some of us have big biceps or tree trunk thighs and I want to see that. Not just lean and toned muscles, I want bulky muscles
- Non-muscular guys. Teenage boys do not need to have buff arms or perfect abs and it sets a nasty beauty standard to see this all the time. Boys can be attractive without all the defined muscles!
- ACNE! So many teens and preteens have acne. Please give us this in the show! Acne isn’t ugly or disgusting, it’s totally normal. I want Percy with acne
- Disabled actors. First, I doubt every demigod has made it away from monsters unharmed. Show us that. Second, I want to see that people who are born with disabilities also exist and have value at Camp
- Tall girl actors. Not all girls are short and what society deems as most cute. Give us tall girls who are also desirable, even if they’re taller than their boyfriend!
- Girls with big boobs who aren’t sexualized. Almost all teenage girls in shows have size B cups at most, and if they do have bigger breasts it means they’re a flirt. Give us a girl with DDs who is treated the exact same as everyone else and isn’t sexualized!
- Varying skin tones throughout campers. Yes, race, but also skin tone specifically. This means not only black rep, but also dark skinned black rep. Not only south asian rep, but also darker skinned south asian rep. Colorism is very much an issue in the media
- Varying facial traits. I want to see bushy eyebrows, hooked noses, big foreheads, all the things that are generally ignored. These traits are all beautiful and deserve to be shown on screen
- This one is slightly less important, but people’s faces getting red. Especially with all the running campers do, their faces should be flushed and sweaty often
Oh boy, just wait for the fatphobes and haters to find this post 😒
