No one has to tell her that her body makes her irrelevant to that entire conversation. Grace has never questioned her body’s place in the world. She’s always believed the laws of movies and TV shows: Chubby girls are sidekicks, not romantic leads; sometimes they get to be funny, but more often they’re the butt of jokes; if they’re powerful, they’e evil- they’re Ursula the sea witch from The Little Mermaid: they are not heroines and they are certainly not sexy. These are the rules. This is the script.
