Why do girls call me "mama" ? why do they use that word instead of my name?

i feel like mama is associated with fat girls, are they calling me obese? like when you playfully greet someone "hey mama how are u?" or hi "mammi"... Show More

  • Its associated with either black/Hispanic girls or fat girls. I can't explain why people people call you that but I wouldn't. I don't blame you for being annoyed by it, but I don't necessarily think they're doing it to insult you.
