One quote sums up the article, “They don’t go on diets or have liposuction to fit into red-carpet outfits; they let out a seam.” No one is letting out any seams, it’s like the media doesn’t know designers and clothing stores ACTUALLY make clothing in sizes larger than 4. How screwed up is it that these girls with rocking bodies are regarded as abnormal in Hollywood?
When I first saw the the title, “Female Stars Step Off The Scale,” I was like:
So you want me to believe Lady Gaga is overweight?
Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham are talented, but are we really putting people on a pedestal because they look normal?
Oh . . . WAIT! I get it. These women are special for being regular because Hollywood has crazy beauty standards that make normal people feel inadequate. Duh!
If Mindy, who says she is a size 8 in her book, is fat, then I guess everyone I know is fat. Even though “plus size” is size 12 and over, and I know plenty of size 12s who have rocking bodies, I guess they’re fat too.
So Hollywood demands that every girl be a size two, but when a girl who is slightly bigger manages to earn her way in she is praised for breaking barriers? The very barriers Hollywood has created. What do you want me from, Hollywood? What do you want?!
I guess I deserve a New York Times article written about me for having a healthy BMI.
Every time I do this . . .
Or this . . .
I am just so freaking brave.
