Do you know what I think, when I face the discussion on American Apparel’s contest for the next plus sized model? Well, it’s obvious that the fashion industry would consider Nancy Upton, a size 12, to be, well, plus and not of moderate, normal or skinny size. But the commenters, oh the commenters. Since when has size twelve been the indication that someone is FAT?
It’s a fat girl crazy for food.
Writes Jill. I read it here, on Feministe, for the love of spanking! She also makes some good points, but keeps undermining the inherent positivity of the fact that this is an intelligent woman, who decided to show herself off to raise some questions and happens to have a body like most of us do. Which is why you can call her fat, I guess, because really, you obviously don’t look like that or if you did, you’d better get a whip cracking wouldn’t you?
I know fat people, when I, rarely, see them. But I don’t stop in my footsteps and gape in awe. If she (or he) decided to live her life the way she had and be content with it – what’s it to me? There was this woman yesterday trying to sit behind me on the bus and she chouldn’t fit in the space, because my seat was half reclined. It made me think about body weight issues and how they affect life very much in the way I ponder about certain kinks that are not my own or that are, but freak me the fuck out, and I though. Huh. She must be okay with it. She’d probably do something to change it otherwise. So, why wouldn’t I be?
But the woman on the bus wasn’t anywhere near size 12. Does this, really, seem fat to you?
Maybe I’m missing something. Maybe it’s been photoshopped or there’s actually more of her from behind… Shes’ pretty sexy to my eyes, and I don’t believe I have a kink for fat. But it doesn’t even matter, if I find her sexy or not. That’s besides the point. I really don’t see any judgmenet in saying that size zero or two would be really thin. I’d say sizes up to 14, at least, would be normal healthy bodies, and not even necessarily curvacious depending on the person.
When all else fails I’m glad there’s always Hugo to turn to.
Also, April Flores’ masturbator pussy is the hottest fake pussy I’ve ever seen. It just looks so real and enviting. I wonder why that is…
