Daily Caller: Everyone Needs To Stop The ‘Plus-Sized Models Are Awesome’ Garbage

Daily Caller: Everyone Needs To Stop The ‘Plus-Sized Models Are Awesome’ Garbage

Nobody is perfect. But, models should be. There are only 2,450 active Navy SEALs because the job requires such an intense devotion to physical fitness. And even if you’re a hard worker, not everyone gets to be a SEAL. That’s just the way it is.

And there should only be so many swimsuit models in the world. Sports Illustrated is only still on the shelves because of their famous swimsuit edition and if you think only a few people are working hard enough on their bodies to be SEALs, only a few people should be able to hold to the standard of being a model.

Our friends over at The Daily Caller are taking exception to the trend where Sports Illustrated is putting women who aren’t in that elite group of either models or top level athletes in their marketing:

My point is very simple. Men love football, alcohol and the women in bikinis that they don’t see walking around the town. If I can look out the windows of my office building and see six people similar to a woman featured in Sports Illustrated, then put simply, that woman has no business being in Sports Illustrated.

For example he pointed out that Sports Illustrated recently featured a woman named Tabria Majors on their Swimsuit social media.

I’m sure she’s a lovely lady, but that’s not what a swimsuit model looks like.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not in perfect shape. I rarely workout. I don’t eat the greatest, and I drink too much Mountain Dew and Miller Lite. The only thing that has allowed me to not balloon is the fact I was blessed with great genetics. Without that, I’d probably be 400 pounds. However, if I started gaining weight rapidly I wouldn’t expect to be celebrated.

I disagree with blaming or bringing up genetic factors, because calories in VS. calories out is still the most basic aspect of size, but there are absolutely medical conditions and medications that can impact on a person’s weight. Thankfully, unless you’re a swimsuit model, nobody really cares what you look like in one.

He lists Kate Bock as an example of a proper swimsuit model, a woman who has often appeared in Sports Illustrated and undoubtedly takes amazing care of herself.

He ends with the simplest statement of all:

Stop celebrating obesity and go back to giving me hot women in tiny bikinis. Is that too much to ask?
