Unhealthy: Elle magazine features obese rapper in order to promote “inclusivity”

Lizzo is a 31-year-old rapper from Detroit. She’s all the rage now, even with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeting about her. According to HuffPo, “It’s truly something.”

Whatever.

This obese womyn is being promoted by the media as a proud big girl. Lizzo has stated, “I’m 5’10”, I’m big and I’ve always been this way – even when I was young I always had this mental gigantism where I felt bigger than I actually was and I still do.”

Lizzo is 5’10” and weighs 250 pounds. Her BMI is 35.9 indicating her weight is in the obese category for adults of her height.

Her obesity is being promoted in the Elle fashion magazine as “What the World Needs Now Is More Lizzo.”

Excerpts from the Elle article pushing this obesity inclusivity:

“Also helpful: regular self-care, which goes hand in hand with her message of self-love. She’s become something of an icon for the latter, but as with her success as an artist, those feelings of confidence and empowerment are hard-earned. “I take self-love very seriously. And I take it seriously because when I was younger, I wanted to change everything about myself,” she says. “I didn’t love who I was.

And the reason I didn’t love who I was is because I was told I wasn’t lovable by the media, by [people at] school, by not seeing myself in beauty ads, by not seeing myself in television…by lack of representation. My self-hatred got so bad that I was fantasizing about being other people. But you can’t live your life trying to be somebody else. What’s the point?”

As with all thing progressive, creating your “own truths” is only what matters. Not reality. Hence being obese is now a form of “body positivity.”

Self care and empowerment does not mean putting your physical being in the obese category, ladies. Seriously.

Also, please pick a side. Obesity and health care costs continue to rise yet you promote this body image as if there was no way to prevent it. All in the name of “inclusivity.”

Calvin Klein promoting obesity under the guise of “inclusivity”

From NY Post: This past spring you couldn’t miss her.

Commanding 4,000 square feet of premium Soho air space and wearing nothing by CK underwear, the indie rapper Chika gazed knowingly from Calvin Klein’s massive billboard — just like Kate Moss and Kendall Jenner before her.

But the 22-year-old musician’s proudly plus-size body type felt like a rebuke against the brand’s traditional muses and their famously skinny silhouettes.

The recent ad’s aftershocks included a feature in Time magazine, an InStyle interview and — thanks to a slew of Instagram tags — millions of digital impressions. But while Chika called her campaign coup a “happy surprise,” it was actually a deliberately canny move from Calvin Klein HQ.

Once the chicest name at New York Fashion Week, the brand didn’t even bother to present this past February nor is it on the show schedule that begins Friday.

Rather, Calvin Klein has recently slipped in its stilettos thanks to an ill-fated allegiance with designer Raf Simons, the beloved Belgian artiste who was named chief creative officer and lead designer in 2016. Simons’ collections were Vogue-lauded sensations but also retail duds thanks to their futuristic shapes and menacing graphics, many licensed from Warhol’s “Death and Disaster” series.

When Simons left the label in December, parent company PVH called his’ two-year tenure a “fashion miss,” and retail analysts estimated his otherworldly and sometimes just odd creations cost the label a whopping $240 million.

PVH stock plunged 7.4 percent in May. Calvin Klein shuttered its Fifth Avenue flagship and skipped the costly — but, in terms of high-profile publicity, major — Met Gala, where it used to host a table loaded with starlets including Margot Robbie and Emma Watson.

It seemed like a death knell. But some experts argue it could be a fresh start and a chance to shake off the cobwebs.

“Letting those things go is actually quite savvy,” says Tyler McCall, who analyzes retail strategy as editor-in-chief of Fashionista.com. “At first, there was a real sense of loss. Calvin was so legendary! But the brand pivoted quickly into what works: the underwear in extended sizing, the nostalgia for the ’90s, the push for diverse bodies in casting.”

Calvin Klein, once known for being a major trendsetter in youth culture — creating often controversial waves with ads starring a 15-year-old Brooke Shields, a skeletal Moss, a muscle-rippling Mark Wahlberg — is finally catching up to Gen Z’s more inclusive, individual idea of cool.

“Contrast that with a brand like Victoria’s Secret, who can’t acknowledge that women exist above a size 12. They very publicly excluded trans women and plus-size women from their runway. And now, their sales are tanking,” McCall adds. “Meanwhile, Calvin Klein . . . is actually listening to [young shoppers].”

According to company sources, the brand’s new strategy includes recruiting an invisible grid of “micro-influencers” (read: fun but not necessarily famous Instagrammers) to weave a new fan base for the brand.

The company’s chief marketing officer, Marie Gulin-Merle, told The Post: “We believe the most compelling and engaging campaigns are those that embrace not just diversity of race, body type, sexual orientation or gender identity, but also diversity of opinion and experience.”

That may explain why the new “#CKPartners” include dozens of plus-size women and men, along with sometime-models such as mental-health blogger Elena Sanchez, Sikh tailor Devkaran Singh Mattakul and disability advocate Kate Virginia posing in her wheelchair.

Of course, reliable thirst traps like Bella Hadid and Naomi Campbell sprawl across much of Calvin Klein’s billboard and Instagram real estate — but now they’re joined by trans bombshell Indya Moore and queer pop icon Beth Ditto, who smolders in plus-size lace lingerie.

Can embracing the full human spectrum, and shedding the waif look for good, save CK One from being CK Done?

Current numbers give a cautious thumbs-up, with the brand’s luxury fragrances claiming a quarter of the spots on Amazon’s bestseller list and its social-media followers surpassing American fashion titans Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren.

But the brand needs to follow through on its promise of inclusion by spotlighting more than one plus-size model at a time, whether it’s on a building or just a handheld phone screen.

As Essence beauty director Julee Wilson has said, inclusion “isn’t just right, it’s good business. Once brands understand the profits they are blatantly missing, hopefully things will get better.”

And if Calvin Klein likes anything more than getting cool cred, it’s getting back those missing profits.

Make. Her. STOP: Obese model Tess Holliday celebrates her 34th birthday as she opens up about struggling with “stress-related insomnia” (NSFW)

Tess shares a pic of her fat ass to highlight her “struggles”

From Daily Mail: Tess Holliday marked her 34th birthday with a confident and sizzling nude snap, days after revealing she identifies as ‘pansexual’.

Posting an update to her Instagram stories, the body positive activist also claimed she has experienced anxiety and trouble sleeping for multiple nights, asking followers to send tips for ‘stress-related insomnia’.

These updates come just one week after the married plus-size model told Nylon magazine that she has recently been ‘figuring out’ her sexuality and her relationship to her ‘queerness’.

Since the interview became public, the Mississippi-born star has shared a series of heartfelt posts in defiance of those who told her she would ‘never amount to anything’.

The mom-of-two also proclaimed that ‘being a visibly fat model/public figure’ is ‘exhausting as hell’ and she longs for the day where marginalized people won’t ‘unnecessarily offend’ the world.

Tess told followers that her only wish for her birthday is that they will look in the mirror and love what they see. The self-claimed ‘proud trailer trash’ promoted the idea that ‘self love can change the damn world’ as she posed in multiple swimwear looks.

Tess celebrated Independence Day with social media sensation and actress Chelcie Lynn in San Diego, California.

Her husband, Australian artist Nick Holliday, joined in the fun, posing in a mullet and red bandana on Instagram. ‘What’s more American than wearing a mullet next to your loud, wide, obnoxious, amazing wife,’ he caption the image of the couple.

This week also marks the Los Angeles-based couple’s fourth wedding anniversary.

The model graced the cover of Nylon magazine’s July 2019 digital issue in a flirty yellow swimsuit, and during her interview, she recalled recently chatting with a man at a hotel pool in Mexico when he asked if she was bisexual.

‘I said, ‘Thank you so much for asking. I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship to my own queerness, and I think the word pansexual speaks to me more than bi does,’ she said, but it turned out the guy was only asking if she was ‘buying’ ⁠— not ‘bi.’

Tess isn’t exactly sure how to describe her sexual identity, but the interaction is proof that it is something that has been on her mind.

Read the whole story here.

I am so sick of this obese womyn who experiences “anxiety” due to her inability to put down a freaking cheeseburger.

I’ve had just about ENOUGH of this COW and her claims of perpetual victimhood.

You want to talk about “exhausting,” you fat womyn?

You want to talk about “looking in the mirror and loving what they see,” you fat womyn?

You want to talk about people who would “never amount to anything,” you fat womyn?

You, Tess Holliday, are nothing but a self-serving, narcissistic, egotistical FAT womyn trying to justify your own indulgences while ignoring the REAL sacrifices humans around the world live with EVERYDAY.

Enjoy your Instagram fame you self-centered, FAT woman.

“#Januhairy” some how empowers women by encouraging them to grow out their body hair

Yeah, hard pass on this form of “empowerment.”

I have no desire for any part of my body to look like that of a man.

From Yahoo: You’ve heard about Movember, but what about ‘Januhairy‘?

Similar to the social movement in November, which encourages men to grow mustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide, Januhairy is a new annual event targeted to women.

Januhairy encourages women to embrace their body hair by growing it out throughout the month. This new craze was started by Laura Jackson, a drama student at the University of Exeter in the U.K. after she noticed a difference in how she felt when she grew out her body hair for a role.

“I grew out my body hair for a performance as part of my drama degree in May 2018,” she wrote in a selfie posted on the Januhairy Instagram account. “There had been some parts that were challenging for me, and others that really opened my eyes to the taboo of body hair on a woman. After a few weeks of getting used to it, I started to like my natural hair. I also started to like the lack of uncomfortable episodes of shaving. Though I felt liberated and more confident in myself, some people around me didn’t understand why I didn’t shave/didn’t agree with it.”

That’s when she put her feelings into action. “I realized that there is still so much more for us to do to be able to accept one another fully and truly. Then I thought of Januhairy and thought I would try it out. It’s a start at least . . .”

She explained that the photo she posted was taken a few months ago, but she’s still participating in Januhairy and starting the growing process over again.

She’s encouraging others to support the movement and the cause associated with it. Jackson created a Crowdfunding page to support the body-positive organization, Body Gossip, which empowers every body to be the best version of themselves through Arts and Education. Her goal is to raise 1,000 pounds and she’s three-quarters of a way to her goal (739 pounds have already been raised).

Only 9 days into the month, the movement has already taken off. There are 2,796 Instagram posts with the hashtag #januhairy featuring empowering selfies from participants.

One Instagram user explained why she was taking part in the movement. “This is not a campaign to say, ‘oh women should be hairy’ but a movement in solidarity to discuss the importance of young women taking back ownership of how their body should look, whether that means being hairless or not, it’s up to individuals to decide.”

Make It Stop: Obese model Tess Holliday again promoting unhealthy body size

Model Tess Holliday is 5’5” and weighs 280 pounds. For someone here age, a normal weight range should be 111 to 150 pounds. She is classified as OBESE CLASS III.  There is NOTHING healthy about being so obese.

According to the CDC, the health risks associated with obesity include:

  • All-causes of death (mortality)
  • High blood pressure
  • High LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, or high levels of triglycerides (Dyslipidemia)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis (a breakdown of cartilage and bone within a joint)
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Some cancers (endometrial, breast, colon, kidney, gallbladder, and liver)
  • Low quality of life
  • Mental illness such as clinical depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders
  • Body pain and difficulty with physical functioning

Tess is into “body positivity” and “female empowerment” because she is fat. Somehow obesity is suppose to give women confidence.

And anyone who dares call out the health risks of her being so fat is instantly labeled a “body shamer.”

A couple days ago she posted the above picture on Instagram with the caption, @lizzobeeating told me to caption this photo “Damn… that look good” #effyourbeautystandards

Sorry but NO. That DOES NOT LOOK GOOD.

Promoting an unhealthy body size is dangerous (see the first bullet in the list below). Disguising a serious health condition as “female empowerment” and dismissing real health standards is not logical.

Feminism today has nothing to do with facts, such as those provided with the evidence of the consequences of obesity. It’s all about feeeeeelings, emotions and justification for your actions – and the lack of personal responsibility. That’s the liberal way.

This is feminism: Obese model Tess Holliday gets Cosmopolitan cover

Feminists claim “body positivity” and “empowerment” are the way to love and accept your body, even if you are obese.

Model Tess Holliday is 5’5” and weighs 280 pounds. For someone here age, a normal weight range should be 111 to 150 pounds. She is classified as OBESE CLASS III.  There is NOTHING healthy about being so obese.

Yet feminists continue to promote this dangerous trend. The latest example? Giving an extremely overweight model (a size 26) a cover on Cosmopolitan magazine.

From Tess’ Instagram post:

“Phew, I’m literally a COSMO GIRL!! Can’t believe I’m saying that! Thank you @cosmopolitanuk & @farrahstorr for this incredible opportunity. If I saw a body like mine on this magazine when I was a young girl, it would have changed my life & hope this does that for some of y’all. Issue hits stands 8/31! Photo by the incredible @wattsupphoto #effyourbeautystandards

Hopefully this Cosmo cover will inspire some women to change their life in a more positive and empowering way than one that leads to obesity.

Feminists get it wrong: Study finds that normalization of plus-size fuels obesity epidemic

chrissy metz

Chrissy Metz contributing to the “empowerment” of obesity.


Shocker, not.
I warned the feminists/SJWs that there is NOTHING healthy about obesity. See the following:

They didn’t listen to me.
From Inquisitr: A new study warns that the media “normalization” of plus-size body types may be fueling the obesity epidemic.
Research analysis of data gathered from 23,460 British people who are overweight or obese revealed that overweight individuals are increasingly underestimating their weight.
The study says people who think they’re thinner than they actually are 85 percent less likely to try to slim down compared to those who accurately estimate their true size.
The results, which were published in the medical journal Obesity, show that the number of overweight individuals who chronically underestimate their size has increased between 1997 and 2015: from 24.5 percent to 30.6 percent in women and 48.4 percent to 57.9 percent in men.
The study suggests that being bombarded with images of “plus-size” models may be leading people to assume that being overweight or obese is the new normal so they feel less incentive to lose weight.
The study was conducted by Dr. Raya Muttarak from the University of East Anglia and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in Austria. Dr. Muttarak’s research also shows that minorities and the less-educated segments of the population are more likely to underestimate their weight.
The research sheds new light on alarming statistics indicating that 63 percent of adults in the U.K. are overweight or obese.
In the United States, an estimated 160 million Americans are either obese or overweight (the total U.S. population is about 326 million). Nearly 75 percent of American men and more than 60 percent of women are obese or overweight, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
Dr. Muttarak said retailers who are trying to cash in on the skyrocketing plus-size population are partly responsible for the “normalization” of obesity. “Seeing the huge potential of the fuller-sized fashion market, retailers may have contributed to the normalisation of being overweight and obese,” Dr. Muttarak wrote. “While this type of body positive movement helps reduce stigmatization of larger-sized bodies, it can potentially undermine the recognition of being overweight and its health consequences.”
Over the years, the fashion industry — which has long exulted super-skinny models — has been blamed for fueling body dysmorphia and the eating disorders anorexia and bulimia. Now it seems the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction.
Dr. Raya Muttarak’s study does not condemn obesity or say overweight people shouldn’t be happy with themselves.
It’s more of a sobering wake-up call about the health consequences of excess weight, which increases the risks of diabetes, early mortality, heart disease, dementia, and cancer. “The continuing problem of people underestimating their weight reflects unsuccessful interventions of health professionals in tackling the overweight and obesity issue,” Muttarak wrote.

Make it stop: Obese model goes nude for "female empowerment"

tess holliday

Tess Holliday: Making an “important” statement…or something.


Feminism is not a girl’s friend. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, “positive” or “empowering” about being obese.
Tess Holliday is a model who is 5’5” and weighs 260 pounds, according to bodymeasurements.orgPer the CDC BMI calculator, her BMI is 43.3 – she is obese. Her normal weight range should be 111 to 150 pounds. How in the world did having almost 50 percent body fat become celebrating “body positivity?”
Tess is now posing nude, again, under the guise of “empowerment.”
You know what would be more empowering? Keeping your clothes on and getting control of your obesity.
Ain’t feminism grand?
From Yahoo: Over the weekend, more than one million people are estimated to have joined in the Women’s Marches around the world. Nick and Tess Holliday took a stand of their own for female empowerment: The body positivity activist and her photographer husband each shared a nude photo of Tess on their Instagram accounts to advocate for respect for women, no matter what they look like or how they’re dressed.
“Women deserve respect, whether they are completely naked or covered head to toe,” Nick wrote on Saturday. “I’m too sick to march, so I worked on this photo we shot a few weeks ago to post today. No alterations to her body or bare face have been made. #effyourbeautystandards #nomakeup #unretouched #womensmarch.” On Sunday, Tess reposted the photo and her husband’s caption, adding, “Repost my hubby @nickhollidayco ?.” In the black and white photo, Tess’s bare back is to the camera. She wears her long hair in a ponytail and stares off into the distance, with lush Californian hills as the photo’s backdrop.
The 32-year-old plus-size model has previously shared nude photos to make other important statements. Last August, she posted a photo in which she wears nothing but sheer underwear as she gazes at the camera. The caption explains that the photo reminded Holliday of her own quote from her 2017 book, The Not So Subtle Art of Being A Fat Girl: Loving The Skin You’re In. “It goes: ‘Fat people have sex. A lot of it. And it’s really fucking good.’ That’s all ????✌?,” the caption reads.
In 2016, while pregnant with now 19-month-old son, Bowie Juniper, Holliday posed nude for The Telegraph. “Just because we’re plus-size doesn’t mean we have to prove that we’re healthy, just as someone who is smaller than us or average size doesn’t have to prove they are healthy. We should be able to exist in our bodies. I am technically healthy but my body is no more valid than someone’s who isn’t,” she said in the accompanying interview with The Telegraph. “I was 7 months pregnant in these photos & loved every moment,” Holliday added in her May 2016 Instagram post about the Telegraph shoot.

Size 26 Tess Holliday leads an army of curvy models at London Fashion Week to promote "body positivity"

Feminism is not a girl’s friend. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, “positive” about being obese.

Tess Holliday is 5’5” and weighs 260 pounds, according to bodymeasurements.org.  Per the CDC BMI calculator, her BMI is 43.3she is obese. Her normal weight range should be 111 to 150 pounds. How in the world did having almost 50 percent body fat become celebrating “body positivity?” Make. It. Stop.

From Daily Mail: Women ranging from a size 10 all the up to a 26 have walked the runway to kick off London Fashion Week in what is being hailed as its first ever ‘curve catwalk’.

With the average UK size a 16, fashion bosses have regularly come under fire for casting waif-like models to advertise their clothes.

But on Thursday evening, seven women of all shapes and sizes took to the stage to showcase their wildly different body shapes in Simply Be’s ‘size inclusive fashion show’ – wearing t-shirts emblazoned with their dress sizes across their chests.

Among them were size 26 model Tess Holliday and size 22 Callie Thorpe, both of whom have been outspoken about the plus-size debate in the past.

Holliday was this week forced to defend herself after being accused of ‘promoting obesity’ during an appearance on Loose Women.

The mother-of-two, from Mississippi, said: ‘No one is celebrating obesity, I am celebrating being the first model my size in the world to be in an industry where everyone said I couldn’t. I am celebrating existing in my body and loving myself, when everybody said I wasn’t worth anything.’
