There used to be a time when, if your clothes began to get tight, your response would be to work out and diet your way back into them. But nowadays, it seems that people are just opting for the much easier choice of buying bigger clothes. It's so much easier to throw down some cash for a larger pair of jeans than it is to devote the time and effort to go on the treadmill or cut out the bacon.
This is apparent with the backlash over Levi's Curve ID jean ads.
Pro-Fatty activists have accused these models of not being fat enough
and are demanding that Levi stop using models with "toothpick legs."
First of all, if you don't like people calling you a "fatty," what gives you the right to talk down on these models?
These are their natural bodies and they probably worked very hard to maintain them. Is it just easier to eat a Twinkie and hate on others by calling them "toothpicks" or accusing them of being anorexic? Because you're overweight, you feel you have the privilege of making thin girls feel like crap?
To me, showing overweight (or even underweight) models is akin to having ads for cigarettes. Obesity is a serious health issue and should not be embraced or celebrated. We should not cave to the Pro-Fatty agenda and make people think it's okay to be so rotund. They want to make America fatter and I will not stand for that! From now on, we should have a more accurate scale of thin => curvy => planetary.And if your clothes are getting tight around the edges, maybe you should start doing something about it. After all, do you wear your clothes, or do your clothes wear you?
