[Content Note: Fat shaming.]

I have mentioned a couple times now that I've been loving the FX series Fargo, particularly because of Allison Tolman, who plays Deputy Molly Solverson.

I honestly cannot say enough how much I love the character, and how much I love the way Allison Tolman plays her. She is the best the end.

And here she is, in real life, pushing back against against fat hatred and body shaming on Twitter: "The explicit use of a weight related adjective to describe a female (fictitious or otherwise) is really troubling. It furthers the notion that a woman's most important contribution to the world is her appearance, and that women deemed insufficiently fuckable by societal standards are somehow lacking."

Rock. The fuck. On.

I mean, obviously, I couldn't be less thrilled that she was obliged to address someone shaming her. But, given that contemptible obligation, I commend her gumption in pushing back.

Love her.
