This insanity with Sports Illustrated and plus-size models took another turn Wednesday morning when they announced rookie Kate Wasley.
As always, what I’m about to say doesn’t apply to regular women, I’m kind of fat myself and I have always defended the rights of attractive women.
Nobody is saying there’s anything wrong with fat people. That’s as obvious as it comes. What I’m saying is that the consumer of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit audience is overwhelmingly male. They’re buying the magazine to see some hot babes in bikinis. They’re not spending their money to see women similar to those walking down the street. It makes absolutely no sense.
We also shouldn’t be celebrating unhealthy lifestyles. I don’t expect anybody to look at my beer belly and tell me I know deserve to be a model so that all body types are celebrated.
For the love of everything that is righteous in this world, please stop this madness Sports Illustrated.
