I've seen a lot of female plus sized models everywhere: on the news, magazines, etc. I've probably seen 1 male plus sized model anywhere. Is it time for more male body types to be represented in modeling?
I believe it is because how some third wave radical feminist have been making a fuss about fat shaming and many have begun to get aggressive about it. The movement has become so influential that media and large corporations are thriving off of it and are seeing how having plus sized women models are creating more positive publicity for themselves.
Conclusion: A cycle where radical feminist who feel oppressed because of "fat shaming" get aggressive > leads to businesses creating propaganda about fat shaming > leads to feminist becoming more aggressive about it> leads to businesses getting plus sized models in hopes of positive publicity caused by these riled up radicals > radicals spread "awareness" of these businesses (aka unawarely promoting the business to other radicals) > cycle repeats.
I think that many people ignore the insecurity men can have. I mean, I have seen a hell of a lot more than 1 male model but you're right that there aren't anywhere near as many compared to the amount of female plus sized models.
Plus sized models for men? Well men should be vocal about it. Start a campaign for it. But actually the body movement already has iya led by mostly gay men who say " mem have curves too" Serious look it up. If men want to see plus size men then they need to be vocal about it
Demand and supply, basically. The demand for plus sized men is low.
Also women tend to compare themselves to other women which often makes them feel insecure about their body image, more so than men. Girls tend to be more concerned with body image than boys. Which is why you'll see petitions to change the appearance of say Barbey to make her more "realistic" but you won't see one for the incredible hulk, he-man etc.
Most men don't really care about how other men look and simply care about themselves.
I agree , I'm a chubby dude but carry it well and take pride in my appearance. But honestly most women don't find plus size dudes attractive so I think that's why we get no love, you all want a Prince Charming with a six pack and shaved chest lol
