I have more to say on this, great article in the latest New Yorker, but I'm tired now.

@ossobuco,
Sorry, the Wonder Woman article is interesting, but this is the big one -

a major article re fashion and fat (I use that word on purpose), quite a few pages.

SEPTEMBER 22, 2014
The Plus Side
Full-ļ¬gured fashion gets a new look.

Also, great photography.


Hasta manana.

I messed up the link in the first post - this is the one I meant.

@ossobuco,
I'm kind of glad that there's more choices and less demonization. It's a market. It's high time someone realized that larger women have money that is just as green as smaller ones.

It's also high time that we weren't punished and insulted in our clothing choices. God knows we're punished and insulted in nearly every other way, all the time (this is not me whining - we make less money, overweight women in particular).

The demonization of overweight people, male and female, also seems to ride along with racial prejudice and age discrimination.

Target Canada recently reviewed their horrible role-out and lacklustre performance in this country

one of the many mistakes they admit to making was not meeting the needs of the plus size market

All About The Base


Because you know

'Bout that bass, no treble

Yeah, it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two
But I can shake it, shake it
Like I'm supposed to do
'Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazine workin' that Photoshop
We know that **** ain't real
C'mon now, make it stop
If you got beauty building, just raise 'em up
'Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don't worry about your size
She says, "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night."
You know I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that's what you're into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm

Hey!

Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
No I'm just playing. I know you think you're fat
But I'm here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top
