"Insatiable" and "Sierra Burgess is a Loser" are two new Netflix originals proclaiming to promote body positivity. "Insatiable" premiered in 2018 and follows a teenage girl who seeks revenge after being bullied for her weight. "Sierra Burgess is a Loser" follows a teenager who embarks on a romance with a boy who has no idea what she looks like. But critics say both projects raise red flags. Which project gets it right?

Slate says the show is misunderstood and successfully uses satire to combat issues that surround identity:

These days, we seem hungry for a certain kind of moral clarity, especially around issues of identity and marginalization. But Insatiable has cooked up something else: something that uses the language of camp and satire to glide through those issues into an unbelievably artificial world filled with surprisingly relatable human beings. If that doesn’t work for you, please continue hating it. I’ve got room for much, much more.

Cosmopolitan says the show isn't perfect but succeeds at delivering a deeper message that says it's what on the inside that matters.

OK, so Sierra Burgess Is a Loser isn’t perfect. But, let’s face it, most rom-coms typically aren’t. And while catfishing is definitely not the way to anyone’s heart, the film’s *chef’s kiss*-level acting talent and the deeper message of seeing someone for who they are, not just as they appear, will give you something to cheer for.
