probably because media erases fat women or exploits them for public ridicule tbh
and because media tells them they cannot be feminine or sexy or cute- but that they are unhealthy and lazy and no one will ever love them
and because ‘Thin women like Emma Stone and curvy women like Christina Hendricks are generally considered equally beautiful by mainstream culture (as they should be!) while women like Nikki Blonsky and Gabourey Sidibe are commended on their bravery or their boldness if they wear a sleeveless dress. And God forbid Gabourey Sidibe go out without putting on her makeup one day – when Cameron Diaz does it, it’s because she’s carefree and natural, whatever that means. When a fat woman does it, she’s a slob.’
and because when I ask the question of “Well, why is there such a problem with seeing plus-sized women in the media, anyway?” You know what answer I get? “Seeing plus-sized women on TV tells people and confirms to people that it’s okay to be fat… and it’s not. People shouldn’t want to be fat, or think it’s ‘okay’ to be fat.”
because American Apparel employees (and so many mainstream companies like them) comfortably proclaiming that the plus-sized market is “not their demographic”
and because stuff like this poster below is not unusual and is a common joke to fat women
and because ‘Hollywood’s portrayal of plus-sized women – either they are rarely ever seen (The Rarity),or made invisible (The Invisible), or they are used as a marketing tool and thus made aspectacle (The Spectacle) or otherwise their weight is made the primary factor in somedrama (The Drama)
and because It’s easy to assume that things are getting better for overweight women in entertainment because there is, indeed, more visibility. The problem is that we can still count the number of singers, actresses, and models who are larger than a size four.
and because in a study 'A quarter (of the women in the study) said they'd rather be severely depressed than obese. About 15 percent said they'd rather be blind. A full 49 percent said they'd trade five years of their life not to be obese’
and in the words if this article ‘ I’m grateful to have Melissa McCarthy and Rebel Wilson on my screen, if only as an affirmation that women of all sizes can be funny and powerful and smart and successful. But I look forward to the day when they just get to be women.’
so tell me anon, why is it that when i make a post celebrating plus sized actresses thinner girls exclaim i am telling them they are ugly when in fact the post wasn’t about them at all and hell it was definitely not intended to make them feel bad.
Tell me why.
