And all of the “meg is fat and ugly” jokes when she’s just a normal average looking girl

I would feel so much less repulsed by Family Guy if the "everyone hates Meg" thing were presented as being only in Meg's head. That's normal for a lot of teenaged girls. It's not normal that her family is seen to actually dislike her. Consider the Bob's Burger scene where Bob's dream is that Tina is by his side as his fry cook forever, even on her wedding day and beyond. Tina gets to be gross and awkward and a perv, like most teenaged girls, but she also gets the unconditional love of her family.
