    Im more interest in weight.

    No body shaming turns into shaming underweigjt people and it shows everywhere.





    Shauine how does no body shaming shame underweight people surely no body shaming is a good thing ! Body shaming is bullying so no body shaming is a good thing it’s not shaming underweight people

    But i just know. This conversation would be completly different if it was a very skinny model. Yet we should all be comfortable

    It’s not personal ... I am just saying that you state she shouldn’t be on the cover because it glamourises it and it’s a strain on the nhs. So you’re saying you’re concerned about the nhs and that’s why you want to dictate someone’s weight..... but if you were truly concerned about the nhs then why this why not all the other multitude of issues that affect the nhs. It’s deeply ingrained fat phobia that people don’t even realise they have

    I mean. When media turned more to "not body shaming" all across my media if made over weight people start to feel better while also making thin people worse. Like having pictures of thin people and saying how disgusting it is and flat people who have no ass & shit quotes

    Yes but that’s not what we are talking about. That isn’t ok either and I wouldn’t condone those kinda things about any body. You’re original post was about this particular lady and why she shouldn’t be on the front cover

    Everyone is beautiful what ever shape, size, weight they are in my opinion. 
    There's a lot more straining the NHS than weight, to which can be caused by multiple illnesses and not just over eating / under eating. 
    Everyone has a story to why they are the way they are and we should be proud and confident about who we are and what our bodies look like

    Yes it is relvant cause changing thin models to very overweight ones and never having thin ones is just saying we shouldnt be that thin. Just like When people said they never saw fat models

    So youd be okay to see a very skinny model on the front magazine then? 
  • JellyelephantJellyelephant Bpd bitch ✌🏼 Posts: 823 Part of The Mix Family
    There are plenty of thin models on the covers. Most are

  • ShaunieShaunie Posts: 13,279 Born on Earth, Raised by The Mix

    We never said that all models on fronts of magazines should be full with those with curves , there’s needs to be a healthy balance and now just heavily photoshopped “skinny” people

    No I don’t think it glamourises it. If you read my previous post I explained that the cover isn’t about her saying she’s proud she’s fat and you should be fat too. She’s saying it’s ok to be who you are and exist in your body. She just happens to be fat also. That’s not everything about her... health is a lot more nuanced than weight.

    Mmmm possibly fat shaming agin there - your saying there’s no dangerously underweight people but all the “fat” people on magazines look like they are danergously overweight ....

    We all know how much and often models are photoshopped and editted to fit the perfect picture the society we created, wants.

    Okay. Im jusy going to finally say. My point is SOMETIMES people who are overweigjt and they say a skinny looking model they can feel bad about their body like this is what we should look like. While people who are thin can see overweiht people and be also jelous. & both extremes are dangerous to show people.in that way

    what can be called as glamarising

    Shauine you litreally said there’s no dangerously underweight people on magazines and that all “fat” people on them Look dangerously overweight so yes I am going to take offence to that . If I was on that magersizne would you say that , or would you say that to the models face no no you wouldn’t , just as you wouldn’t say the same to a underweight person

    The problem is with the magazine industry, showing people who are edited to unrealistic standards, or people at a level of health that can't be safely maintained, to try and sell a product without regard for the consequences.
    Literally what I'm trying to say lmao

    Even people on Instagram are editing their pictures in such a way to create what they think is the perfect body

    Shauine by saying all “fat people “ on the front of magazines look dangerously overweight where as skinny people don’t is doing exactly that , your feeding into the stereotypes around larger people be saying that
