Response to A Plus-Size Woman Decided To Buy A Tank Top After She Heard Other Shoppers Mocking Its Size:
Why are we worshiping the anorexic set of people, aka models, television personalities, movie actors? They are sickly underweight and in more danger than the overweight set! Yet every magazine has them prominently displayed. What is worse, is their image isn’t even thin or good enough for that, they must then be airbrushed to be even thinner. There isn’t a movie or television show that accurately depicts what a healthy person looks like If they aren’t severely starved looking they are morbidly obese. No middle ground, no accuracy. I agree with “I’ve no clue why we are encouraging dangerously unhealthy people. It’s like patting someone on the back for smoking 3 packs a day.” We NEED to stand up and say ENOUGH to the ultra thin being displayed as “healthy” people. We need more realistic people to be in view of people, so they can see what they should look like. There is a broad spectrum of what is healthy- on some people that appears as thin and others not so much. Mostly it is between you and your physician.
