I'm sure there must be some around, but they're certainly not a majority.
Seems like #FatAcceptance is a Female Privilege.

I don't think it's a "privilege" at all. In general, society accepts larger men a lot more than larger women. Men are often referred to as "big boned" or people say things like "oh, he's built like a linebacker."
Even women of average weight are criticized for being fat. I remember when I was 12, my best friend told me she would kill herself if she ever got fat. That's what promoting anorexic models does to girls in our society.
Why is it controversial to have a model that's a healthy, average size 8 but it's the norm to have unhealthy, anorexic size 0 models? What is that teaching young girls?
Also, women are WAY more likely to suffer from disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. Sadly, I went through a brief period of this myself :(0

Plus size female models are bad enough, we don't need any plus size male models. I know I'll get a lot of down votes from girls, but being plus size shouldn't be accepted as good in the society. Unless the person has like Cushing syndrome or something, people should be aware that it's unhealthy and you have a higher chances of getting a heart attack early in your life. The only reason why there are plus size female models because women want our standards to decrease while theirs to be increased. I don't want plus size male models but it's amazing how there are plus size female models but not enough black male models, no East Asian male models much, definitely no Indian male models, etc. If anything, there should be race acceptance rather than fat acceptance.2
