The fairies of Destiny: The Winx Saga are back for a second season, available September 16 on Netflix. In the new live-action episodes of the popular animated series, Bloom and her friends face great danger at Alfea, a fairy-tale boarding house in another world.

The Winx must uncover dark secrets and get closer to Headmistress Rosalind to learn that bloodthirsty wizards are their arch-enemies who have infiltrated the school. The threat was great, the headmaster took advantage of a special ball crucial to his position in Alfea to establish his authority and position.

Bloom and others are clearly getting on this ball. And whoever says prom, says prom clothes. But not for everyone. While Bloom, Stella, Aisha, Musa and Flora wear dresses, Terra wears a simpler outfit with jeans and sneakers.

This difference in treatment angered fans, who took to the web about it. For netizens, Tera, who is overweight, suffers from fat phobia because she is the only one who does not have a high-waisted dress for the ball.

Fans don’t understand this stylistic and scripting choice, and some even go so far as to say it’s also about homophobia. Elliott Salt’s character comes out as a lesbian to his friends in this second season and even finds a girlfriend, whom he goes on a date with at the end of the season.

Even if the sequence of this speech moved the fans, they will not forget the scene of the ball, where he collides with his friends. It’s unfair to netizens that an overweight and lesbian character isn’t exposed like this at a fancy party.

Translation: “Bloom rocks everything, but what the hell is Terra? Why can’t they dress properly?”

Translation: “The thing that pisses me off the most about Fate: The Winx saga is how all the skinny girls end up with those pretty costumes and pretty dresses, but Terra’s costumes are just awful, and not camp, but downright awful. Way to go, ‘let’s put a fat girl in a bag.’

Both seasons of Destiny: The Winx Saga are available on Netflix.
