I feel pretty strongly that we as a culture talk a lot about (and condemn) Piggy’s behaviour of physical lashing out and ignoring boundaries. We also characterize fat femmes as being similar- desperate, clingy, volatile, hysterical. I didn’t feel the need to outline Piggy’s behaviour because it’s more obviously inappropriate. Kermit’s emotional abuse, however, is rarely noticed, much less discussed, hence why that was my area of focus and critique.
