Thanks for MHO! :D
They should balance. But don’t necessarily show representations of what is “right” or “wrong.” Just showing the public what you should be doing to make healthier decisions.
@striaightshooger how on Earth can you show something without it representing right or wrong lol it will always be precieved as one or the other, it's pictures. Truth is you will never be able to make everyone happy.

So basically it is everyone else’s fault that they’re fat? That’s the mindset that causes obesity rate to increase. You’re not helping.
No, they do need reminding, simply because they are killing themselves. This level of obesity is dangerous, I'm glad that certain magazines have stopped promoting anorexic body sizes (which is exactly the same thing as this, btw) and started to show more realistic sizes but anyone who says "these are the average sizes of women so they should show them" is simply wrong. Because it SHOULDN'T be the average size of anyone... Obviously no one is saying that fat people should hide away, but they shouldn't expect special treatment simply because they ARE overweight... Other than maybe free gym memberships.
Nice! I’ll read it 👍
Obesity is not having curves. It’s a serious health issues that people die from.
Don’t you think the woman in the pic is clinical obese? Obesity leads to health problems and eventual death. We should not be celebrating it.
I do agree that the woman they've chosen to appear on the front page is a little too much on the extreme side of overweight for them to be promoting. But I was mainly referring to just a typical plus-size model instead.
There is a huge diffrance between overweight and obese, I assume she is on the 360lbs area, thats more then twice of my weight and I am considered overweight
Tess Holliday is obese. That’s what this question is about. And I’m also against anorexia.
Then no its not okay to premote obese women but we should premote more women like Ashley Graham
Woman on the cover is clearly obese
Please read what I said before commenting.
Glad she workinn on it
How about society expects models to not be fat, but also stops expecting models to be super skinny? I'm saying this as someone who's always been at least 15 pounds underweight.Emotionally I'd like to see women in magazines who look like me, HOWEVER I know that most women can't be this skinny naturally, & have to go to very unhealthy lengths to get to this point. I hate that so many women feel pressured to do that, instead of being happy at a healthy weight.
I get your point. Some models go to strange heights to be skinny. That's bad but some fat model cannot take their place. They worked so hard to get there. And I feel that a perfectly maintained body is best suitable for modeling. Not overweight fat ass or super skinny girl.
