“Be­fore I’m at­tacked for sup­port­ing the ban of plus-sized mod­els, al­low me to put forth some facts. The fact that obe­sity is an in­creas­ingly scary health is­sue, that a dif­fer­ent re­search has found that av­er­age-sized women ac­tu­ally have lower self-es­teem af­ter look­ing at plus-sized mod­els (as against su­per-skinny ones), and that mod­els are ‘in­spi­ra­tion fig­ures’, look­ing at chubby ones will most def­i­nitely make many of us even less afraid of wolf­ing down that last piece of cake. The truth is, ‘fat’ mod­els send out just as much of an un­healthy mes­sage as un­der­weight ones—why can’t we all just root for ‘fit and healthy’?”
