Singer Rihanna’s lingerie line praised for showcasing plus-size men

Progressives have been pushing the normalization of obesity under the guise of “body positivity” and “inclusivity.” See the following examples:

Calvin Klein promoting obesity under the guise of “inclusivity”
Size 26 Tess Holliday leads an army of curvy models at London Fashion Week to promote “body positivity”

Yet they may want to re-think this “obesity is positivity” thing considering this: “Obesity increases risk of dying from COVID-19 by nearly 40%.”

This movement has mainly focused on women yet now singer Rihanna is trying to make sure men get in on the “body positivity” movement, too. Video below NSFW.

The NY Post reports that the singer is “reaping praise on social media for employing plus-size male models for the Savage X Fenty capsule collection drop.”

From their story:

“The move is on-brand for the Fenty fashion house, whose continued campaign for inclusivity has been a viral headline mainstay since their launch in 2017, when they began featuring curvy physiques in their campaigns and in-store displays.

It’s not just about body positivity. Fenty Beauty’s flagship foundation was lauded for its comprehensive range of 40 shades. And earlier this year they introduced a “gender-neutral” skin care line, marketed to men, women and nonbinary people together.”

Vogue trying to normalize obesity with rapper Lizzo cover/interview

I’ve done several blog posts on the obese rapper Lizzo (see here, here and here) and the media’s promotion of her “body positivity.”

This womyn is 31 years old. She is 5’10” and weighs 264 pounds. According to the CDC BMI calculator, Lizzo’s BMI is 37.9 which means she falls in the “obese” category.

Despite the health dangers of obesity, the media and pop culture continue to push Lizzo as a “body positivity” influencer.

So much so that she was rewarded with a Vogue cover:

In the Vogue article she states the following:

“Though the plus-size singer/songwriter is known for being body positive, she says the phrase is lazy at this point and prefers to be known for something else.

“I think it’s lazy for me to just say I’m body positive at this point,” she says. “It’s easy. I would like to be body-normative. I want to normalize my body. And not just be like, ‘Ooh, look at this cool movement. Being fat is body positive.’ No, being fat is normal. I think now, I owe it to the people who started this to not just stop here. We have to make people uncomfortable again so that we can continue to change. Change is always uncomfortable, right?”

Here are some pictures of Lizzo in real life:

Lizzo might want to re-think her stance on normalizing being fat. Bet the girl doesn’t realize that her obesity increases her chance of dying from Wuhan virus by 40 percent.

It’s a mystery? Obesity seems to be tied to getting very sick from Wuhan virus

Serious headline from the AP:

For years feminists have been promoting “body positivity” and have derided anyone who “fat shames.”

Gee, I wonder why obesity may make you prone to getting very sick from the Wuhan virus? Could it have something to do with the many health complications that occur with obesity such as high blood pressure and diabetes?

Do any of these womyn look “healthy” to you?

Need more proof that Jillian Michaels was correct about singer Lizzo and her weight?

Here it is (NSFW):

This womyn is 31 years old. She is 5’10” and weighs 264 pounds. According to the CDC BMI calculator, Lizzo’s BMI is 37.9 which means she falls in the “obese” category.

Despite the health dangers of obesity, the media and pop culture continue to push Lizzo as a “body positivity” influencer.

Yuck. I see nothing positive about this body.

‘Curviest model ever’ posts ‘fearless’ swimsuit photo: ‘Cellulite is cool too’

More of this “body positivity” and “inclusivity” crap. Ugh.

And if you dare have a different opinion, be warned you WILL BE shamed for stating the truth about the side effects of obesity.

Cool cellulite on plus-size model Hunter McGrady

From Yahoo: Supermodel Hunter McGrady is making 2020 “fearless” with a swimsuit post that amplifies her curves — and her cellulite.

The 26-year-old beauty, once named Sports Illustrated’s ‘Curviest Model Ever,’ was true to form on Instagram Thursday, posing on the beach in a black one-piece swimsuit. “Cus cellulite is cool too bodies are meant to change with you, move a little different and look different,” she wrote. “We’re so predisposed as humans to want to go with the grain and change ourselves to fit inside a pristine box in order to be accepted. Real change happens outside of our comfort zones. So many of us let Fear hold us back from doing things we love or loving ourselves because we think we won’t measure up.”

Defining fear as “False Evidence Appearing Real,” the model added, “We get into our heads and allow fear to control us and tell us what we lack and what we aren’t. Let’s make sure to make this year a fearless one.”

McGrady has started 2020 with optimism and confidence. Anticipating her fourth appearance in the upcoming Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, shot in Bali, she recently posted a throwback outtake from last year’s Costa Rican shoot.

And in a November preview, McGrady posed in a black-and-gold bikini. “Can’t wait for you guys to see this issue,” she wrote on Instagram. “Keep on rocking that body of yours and remember You are ENOUGH as you are RIGHT. NOW.”

The model, who is still a newlywed — in June, she married Brian Keyes, whom she reportedly met on Snapchat after dating for less than two years — also graced the fall issue of The Knot. McGrady told Good Morning America that owning the cover as a plus-size woman was secondary to how her image was presented.

My whole platform is inclusivity and there’s nothing on [the cover] that’s like, ‘This is a plus-size model.’ It’s a model on the cover of a magazine,” McGrady told GMA in July. “My whole message is promoting that and getting that narrative out there that we should all feel seen and all feel beautiful regardless of our size.”

Celebrity trainer blasted for stating the truth about obesity

Last December, celebrity personal trainer Jillian Michaels went against the “body positivity” crowd by stating the truth. She believes that this movement has helped to improve people’s lives yet she’s concerned about the health implications.

From People Magazine: I think we’re politically correct to the point of endangering people. Yes, we want to be inclusive of everyone [and respect that] everyone comes in all different shapes and sizes. That nobody should ever be body shamed or fat shamed or excluded and that everyone is equally deserving and should feel equally valuable.

“Obesity in itself is not something that should be glamorized. But we’ve become so politically correct that no one wants to say it.”

“I think the world has shifted to a place where that format and messaging is considered fat shaming. But it isn’t, and it’s not meant to be. Now we’ve gone too far in the opposite direction.”

Last week she specifically called out the glamorizing of obese singer, Rizzo who has been heralded for her body positivity. See examples here and here.

Jillian recently said in an interview with BuzzFeed: Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music? ‘Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes.”

Liberals blasted Jillian for daring to speak the truth about the consequences of obesity. As reported by Page Six:

“The only reason we know who Jillian Michaels is, is because of a reality show where people used incredibly unhealthy practices in order to lose as much weight as possible,” wrote one tweeter, “not to become the most physically fit or to get the healthiest vitals – in a dangerously short time.”

Another follower called her statements “incredibly gross” while another made note of the “Good as Hell” singer’s energetic stage show.

“Lizzo spends hours every night singing and playing the flute during intensive dance cardio. Just admit that the only self worth you’ve found for yourself is in your thinness, Jillian, then go to therapy & do the work to love yourself.”

Jillian then posted to Instagram: “As I’ve stated repeatedly, we are all beautiful, worthy and equally deserving. I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity – heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few. I would never with these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies.”

How pathetic that stating the obvious truths about obesity is considered “incredibly gross.”

Keep your kids far, far away from Lakers games: Obese singer Lizzo twerks in a thong at Staples Center

I’ve told you about the rapper/singer Lizzo before. She’s an obese woman who is promoted in fashion magazines in the name of “inclusivity.”

She admits to being fat yet loves that “insecurity.”

Of course she makes no mention of the health tolls and costs that go along with that “insecurity.”

Turns out not only is she fat, she has a FOUL mouth and loves showing off her fat butt in public.

The singer was recently at a Lakers game and gave the audience a full view of her insecurities.

Videos are NSFW.

Girl, no one at a basketball game with their child wants to see that. What a narcissist she is.

Rapper Lizzo learning to love her insecurities: “I am fat, I am beautiful”

Girl, you are not fat. You are obese.

This womyn 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.

Trying to disguise her obesity as an “insecurity” or as a need for “inclusivity” does not change the realities of the physical effects of obesity.

As I said in a post last month, please pick a side. Obesity and health care costs continue to rise yet this body image is promoted as if there was no way to prevent it. All in the name of “inclusivity.”

From Yahoo: She’s famed for her upbeat anthems, but, in a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Lizzo admits that body-shaming remarks have taken a toll. The “Juice” singer and self-professed “band geek” — whose real name is Melissa Jefferson — tells the morning show’s Tracy Smith that receiving negative feedback is like getting a “mosquito bite.” At first it’s a minor annoyance, but over time it’s eating you alive.

“Somebody’s like, ‘Well, you know, you’re a big girl so you can never have short hair, you always have to have big hair because you’re a big girl,’” she says. “And they say that lovingly, but I’m like, that’s a little mosquito bite. You don’t even know it’s there, but soon you look up and you’re covered in mosquito bites and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, I have all of these things [scratching arms] but they were so normalized to me because they were so innocent.’

“[People] meant well but I had to peel back a lot of layers,” she adds.

While countless fans credit her and her music for making them feel empowered, the star says her own journey to self-confidence took real work.

“It’s not something you really change,” she says. “It’s something that you address and work on. I had to address every layer of insecurity. Because I can’t just be like, ‘Alright, my arm’s not jiggly and lumpy anymore’ — that’s delusional. You have to be like, ‘That’s not ugly to me anymore, and it’s not wrong to me, it’s beautiful to me.

And I think that is why I’m able to call myself fat, and people are like, ‘No!’ Even my friends. And I’m like, ‘B***h, you know I’m fat.’ I’m like, ‘Don’t say no. I am fat, I am beautiful.’

I think it’s because I learned to actually look all my insecurities in the face, call them by their name and fall in love with them.”

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.
