Welcome to the new age of feminism. Being offended by everything and raging about it on social media.
I LOVE that Protein World didn't bow to the minority and actually INCREASED sales because of this though.
Some comments :
Fat people should spend their time losing weight rather than being offended by advertisements.
I'm sorry what is wrong with the ad? How does it shame anyone? It says nothing about fat people. How pathetic that the mere image of a fit and healthy person is offensive and "shaming" to people who aren't The next logical step is that actual fit people should be outlawed or jail since their mere existence - and the sight of them - may offend a fat person.
Obesity comes from actions... not genes. Shut your mouth and do something about it!!!
I agree advertising is great it's just a ad if you don't like it ignore it. If you're fat workout or shut up and don't look at model. Simple as that!
What do you think?
Are You Beach Body Ready?
What Girls Said 13
I agree with you. A lot of people argue that people are fat due to health issues but only around 10% are actually issues. 30 years ago it was very very rare to run into someone overweight, it isn't genetic, it's a lazier, greasier system that has caused people to blow up.3
I never got what was wrong with that picture. It's no different to any other health/weight loss campaign.
No one should, in general, promote being unhealthy at either end of the scale, but people can't live in denial either.1
I'm beach body ready in the sense that my body is able to go on the beach ;) But I sure as hell don't look like that girl (and I hate the beach anyway) :P0
Yeah I'm definitely beach body ready2
You sound like everything bothers you lol
I'm not offended by this ad and nope. Never beach body ready.1
I have a body, therefore it is beach ready.2
I don't see anything wrong with the ad. The comments are a totally different story and disgusting. And I don't like the beach so there's that. I am working on being pool/amusement park ready tho.0
I'm always ready for the beach, my body be damned.2
Nah man, I'm never beach body ready. I'm ass ready though. If that counts.0
I'm not one for the beach but I'm ready.
As for this ad being offensive I don't find it that way.0
The reason why some people are offended is because it's saying they have to look like that if they want to wear a bikini and go to the beach. That you have to be stick thin. If you look like anything else, then you're not beach body rrady, you're just fat. There are other body types out there that can't achieve that body, so it sets an unrealistic expectation for women on how they're "supposed" to look.
An ectomorph is when you're small boned and can lose weight easily, but not muscle (this is what most models like on that ad look like)
A mesomorph is when you have a body that gains muscle easily and is in between
And lastly, an endomorph is when these people have bigger bones and gain fat more easily.
Tbh, most women are endomorphs, because excess fat is what's needed for child bearing. What's featured on that ad is and ectomorph, which is what a lot of women try to strive to be, but end up anorexic or bulimic for setting unrealistic body standards that "all women need to set for themselves" based on these ads.
Sorry for the spiel I'm just really passionate above these types of things.0

No. We shouldn't have to be in shape to go to the beach, this advert is suggesting that all people who don't look that way be banned from the beach, I can't just walk past and ignore it. What about us people who don't want to work out and get to a healthy weight? What if we want to drink sugary beverages and eat lots of junk? I can be overweight and healthy. And anyway, real women like curves, especially round ones like my belly. With my fat belly I'm just as beautiful as a model, they're unrealistic anyway, I mean they are real and they do eat well and train hard to look the way they do, but do you think that's realistic for me? Even though I have two arms and two legs? To do some exercise and stop eating crap? How dare you? It's a Dad bod.0
I think the ad is *stupid*, and that person does seem underweight, like 10 more pounds would be ideal, but I don't care about the "message". It pisses me off because it's a stupid ad, but it would piss me off just as much if the model weighed more, because it's a stupid ad. But yeah I mean certain people are prone to obesity and certain people aren't. I can eat more calories than I need without getting fat, some people can't, but whether or not they do the eating and/or burn the calories is a choice.
Talked to my friend about this before and they said it seems very "american" to be pro-fat. All that fast food and stuff.
And no I'm not beach body ready because I can't stand going the beach. I'm mountain/trail/whatever body ready though. :D0
The beaches want my body0
I think it is weird that people think you can only go to the beach if you are flat like a board...0
