KJ YOU ARE KILLIN MEI really wanna do a shoot like this!
They really need to take the ‘plus size’ out of their vocab. You’re either a model or you’re not, size doesn’t matter.
Ugh, exactly. Until we stop making a big deal about putting “plus-sized” people in ads and magazine spreads, it’s still going to be seen as weird.
Ugh, let me guess - you two also believe that “if we just stop talking about race, racism will magically go away.” The same way women got the right to vote by no one talking about it or the way gays in the military stopped being persecuted for being gay by no one talking about it. Here’s the deal marginalizers (yup, just made up a word, but it’s cool since we’re not even really talking about this, right?) you can’t IGNORE a bad situation into GOING AWAY. A marginalized group does not stop being marginalized by letting themselves be further IGNORED. Fat people are barely represented in the media - that’s just a fact. And that’s just considering white fat people, fat people OF COLOR are even less represented. So yes, spreads like this in magazines like this are necessary. So bodies like this and people likes this CAN BE NORMALIZED. So that when marginalizers see fat people, they can finally find their way to not seeing them as “weird.” It is too damn early in the morning for me to have to be dealing with people who have obviously had the luxury of seeing people in the media who look like themselves their entire lives. Some of us haven’t had that privilege, stop expecting us to stay quiet about it.

Sometimes you read something and your whole perspective of a situation changes. This is one of those things.
They’re beautiful. But they should really lose some weight (not being a bitch)
- you ARE being a bitch.
