J.K Rowling
J.K. Rowling is the author of the Harry Potter series, which is very popular til this day. She is glorified and praised, and is not considered as "strange" but a hard worker who accomplished all her goals.

Liza Marquez
Alyzza Marquez's mother is married to Mitchell Marquez, who is Alyzza's father. When they first met, Mitchell was overweight, and was considered obese when she first met him in college. Alyzza's mom still liked him, no matter how much he weighed, or how he looks like.

Bibliography
Thank you for listening to our presentation!
by Alyzza Marquez and Nicole Awwad, 4th period
In the song Human Again, after the make-up utensils sing on the vanity; the wardrobe, who is considered big, falls onto the vanity while the make-up utensils run away hurriedly.
This shows that big, not-the-skinniest people are scary, and should be avoided.
Queen Latifah
This is an example of sizeism
