Plus Size Model Controversy: Magazine Angers Internet Over Definitions of Beauty
Have you ever had to convince your girlfriend or wife that she’s beautiful? Have you ever yourself felt ugly or inadequate because of the perceived definitions of beauty that magazines and media shove into our faces everyday? Despite having tons of make-up and obvious photoshopped pictures, we’re all still buying into the big corporations’ definitions of beauty, only for them to sell us more make-up, more expensive clothes, more overpriced jewelry, more unnecessary accessories and so much more crap.
Below is a photo posted by a magazine that had caught fire online. Internet users were outraged at the magazine’s definition of “Plus Sized Model” as they describe a perfectly normal looking / beautiful woman in the photo.
The magazine’s caption read:
“Plus-size supermodel Robyn Lawley is BEYOND in this sexy swim shoot for Cosmo Australia”
Comments that followed were priceless! Our favorite was:
Kindly take your ideas of “plus size” and shove them up your a$$ sideways.
Every man on the planet who has had to reassure his perfectly healthy and proportioned woman she’s not fat because a-holes like you perpetuate this idea in her head that she’s “plus size.”
