Let’s stop giving light to plus-size models

Has the modeling industry gone too far with the qualifications for the standards of beauty because now you can be overweight and look like Megan the Stallion?

Modeling in society today is all about how a person feels on the inside instead of the out.

Understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder if a person finds someone attractive then by all means proceed but when do we say enough?

A woman can be big and beautiful but to say that I’m a model and you have more body fat than the average woman can be concerning for some.

The plus-size women have managed to just focus on how they feel instead of how they look or rather just not care about how they look.

Is it really fat shaming for trying to assist with a solution for them to lose weight? Are people going to ignore all the health consequences that these models can face or should we just pretend this is normal?

Nothing wrong with accepting who you are as a person that’s lovely but it’s a give-and-take with it, anyone has the right to say I’m not attracted to overweight women and shouldn’t be judged for it.

The issue comes into play when people enable this kind of thought process to the point of delusion.

If a model is a dress size 16 and looks like butterbean the professional boxer majority of modern women would say “Okay girl I see you”, “Live in your truth” or even “Don’t change the way you look” which is not helping the situation.

These behaviors breed laziness in their lifestyle and malignant problems that they don’t want to help treat.

Let’s say perhaps heart disease, clogged arteries or maybe type one diabetes can be factors when it comes to this.

People can talk about their bodies claiming if they feel good then they’re okay but that’s not the case no one wakes up one day and wants to be overweight on purpose, you have to work your way up to that point.

The old saying “health is wealth” well let’s be healthy so people can prevent these issues from happening don’t be that person to say “I’ve always been big my whole life so what?” anyone can change.

Kanye west made a comment in an interview with BET about Lizzo’s weight and proceeded to say his two cents.

When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots attack her for losing weight because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal when it’s actually unhealthy,” he said.

“If someone thinks it’s attractive, to each his own. It’s actually clinically unhealthy.

Three-time Grammy winner Lizzo said in a billboard magazine article, “I know I’m fat it doesn’t bother me and I’m beautiful and I’m healthy.”

The bottom line is if you want a good body, you have to work for it.

Don’t just accept being overweight and be comfortable; Stop giving these kinds of people ammo to be prideful when they should be humbled and stay in reality that they are living an unhealthy lifestyle.
