    Gender Inequality in Media & Pop Culture

    People forget she's probably something like 6 foot 5 so she could very well be a plus size.

    It's like when I tell people I'm a size 00, and they're shocked because I don't look skinny. I'm 4'10" so of course it wouldn't look sickly on me. And then when people say "Oh there should be a ban on size 0!" It's stupid because others don't consider that we might all come in different shapes and sizes.


    I see Dono is saying the same thing as me. Haha we are on the same page!

    Gender Inequality in Media & Pop Culture

    Size 12 and above is considered plus-size, despite it being average. Plus-size usually denotes that the person who fits that size is fat, or so says everything that advertises to women. Despite the fact that bodies can't go below a certain size because of bone structure, really. The problem is that "plus-size" is now almost synonymous with "fat", and actually the very existence of plus-size itself- some brands use it to denote a wider thigh/hip/waist in their clothing, but most of the time it just serves to segregate "skinny" from allegedly fat.

    The whole notion of skinny being the way to go is really undesirable anyway. If you are consistently healthy/fit/in shape, you should end up being as thin as your natural structure will let you be. And you'll feel great.

    Being overweight is a problem as well, but I mean. I feel like the skinny trends are problematic because it's all about sexualization. The media (mostly men, tbh) are telling women "you need to conform to our idea of beauty so we will find you desirable". That's gross.

    She's plus-size cuz she's literally big-boned, she has a large frame.

    She's size 12 because she's something like 6'1" or something. Rather than "plus-size", she should be described as a tall model, since that's what she actually is.

    I agree with Dave, it would make a good thread, despite that it's already a blog. XD
