I'm tired of seeing the skinny anorexic looking women on magazine covers or all over the web. They should be showing real bodies, like plus sized models. Also, no photoshop allowed. My sister is going to be in grade ten this year, and I'd rather her role models be us big beautiful women instead. Us real women.
Yes because we are used to seeing what is advertised. Just because the bigger women is always seen unhealthy doesn't always mean they are. They're just very "big boned" and different shapes and sizes of women.
Plus-sized models are shown with plus-sized garments. If the company producing the clothes made them with skinny women in mind, then it is their choice to show skinny women. On another note, the majority is of the opinion that skinny is better. Therefore, it only makes sense for thin women to be shown by the company in order to make their product look better.
I disagree with both. Natural slim/fit women yes, that is great. Fat women is a no. That is saying to the world that it is okay for people to be fat. There is no such thing as "big boned" Take an x-ray of a fat man, and there skeleton would be the same size as a skinny guy.
Depends on how plus size they are. If they are plus size as in a normal woman weight, then that will be ideal. If you are talking plus size as in a woman that is more than 200 pounds then probably not.
Ya, the only reason guys love skinny women (or whatever), is because they're glorified. If bigger women were glorified, they'd be the new attractive women. Remember, we fall for what the media tells us is hot
Or how about we quit looking to others entirely for what we want validated or influenced in society? Why replace one standard of the female body for another? That doesn't strike me as being the best way to go about this whole thing.
I'm naturally thin and I'm pretty sure I'm 100% real.
Putting down a different body type from your own is wrong and I don't think that's a good example to show to your sister. The reality is, women come in all shapes and sizes and all of them are beautiful. Just because someone is skinny doesn't mean they are anorexic or not beautiful. There's nothing wrong with being a bigger woman either. I just think that body shaming anyone is rude and unnecessary.
I'm pretty big, and I agree. I think magazines should have a mix though. And I also don't agree with bigger women as "real" women. We're still women who get hurt and love (so do men). The majority may seem... haughty, but I know for a fact they can be just as smart and amazing as us. And also, I used to think like that, but what you're doing is putting them down so you can feel better about yourself. And if I'm wrong and you aren't, sorry for my assumption. And sorry if this hurts. But I don't think there is any TRUE superior human.
I don't look up to fashion models so I don't care. imma be honest, some of these plus size models do not wear the clothes well. if u go to asos. com, they have a plus size model that in my opinion doesn't look good in the clothes. why not get a cute size 6 hourglass or pear shape model?
I work my ass off to be thin. So am I not real? The models who model clothing are real, whether you like it or not. Just because you are obviously insecure about your body doesn't make insulting thin girls all good. It's getting a little annoying how people keep calling every model "anorexic". Most models work very hard to be thin, they watch what they eat and exercise. They are real women, just like you and me are real. Why promote being overweight? Many clothes look best on thin women, that's why they're models. Whoever the clothes or makeup or whatnot looks best on should model.
I think women off all sizes should be represented in the media equally—and that all women should be referred to as "real women". People come in all different shapes and sizes, and it would be wonderful for younger children/teenagers to see all body types shown.
And, for the record, "anorexic" is NOT an adjective one should use to describe thin women.
Not plus sized models, but use real women for once. show off bodies with stretch marks, scars, etc. so that we all know that our imperfections are ok and can be beautiful too.
same goes for men. use models of all shapes and sizes (well, ok, please don't use a 300 kg guy... cause that would just be promoting unhealthy lifestyles. same goes for women. no morbidly obese people.) but please, PLEASE, PLEASE, no back and shoulder hair. *shudder*
I think that plus sized models should be regular models then there should be a few skinny models and a few actually plus sized models. Most plus sized models are size 4 so they're far from being plus sized.
I agree with what you mean but why do you have to call bigger women "real women"? Yes, I dislike the media for highlighting thin/skinny as the only "beautiful" size, but saying that anything outside that category is "real" doesn't really make anyone in the right because it's body shaming. Why can't ever body type just be highlighted? What also matters is that they are healthy and comfortable in their skin, regardless of size etc.
Absolutely!!! Beauty comes in all shapes & sizes :)
yeah because you need to bring down other women to bring yourself up right? oh wait you can do that without bullying others. you know I've experienced way more body shaming as a naturally slim woman that any of my larger friends did through school and ever since then. I've been called anorexic, told to eat a burger, stick insect, im not a real woman, only a dog wants a bone etc. i dont see how being slim or skinny makes you a fake woman? every female is a real woman no matter what body type you might prefer.
its great that you're proud of your body but there's no need to bully others and shame a whole section of women the majority of which have never said a nasty thing about you or women that are larger. im so sick of this pc crap which allows ridiculing of a group of people by others but if those same others were ridiculed thered be the biggest kick off of outrage and discrimination.
