    Landry did not mention the change around 2000 to glorify Jennifer Lopez as an unconventional body type that was sexy. She was very thin and fit (dancer background) but had a butt. This then became a push to allow for women of color to break down white patriarchal norms of beauty. That has all snowballed into orcas saying they are sexy and wont diet a dozen years later.

    This fine specimen is one of the biggest Instagram celebrities in Sweden:

    Her “Body Positivity Dances” draw rave reviews from Swedish fatties. She was suspended from Instagram for slipping a nip, but due to outcry from fellow feminist cat ladies she was reinstated.

  3. Leftism is so rotten that it will promote even such obviously, objectively unhealthy things as obesity.

  4. I don’t see a reaction against the extreme thinness often demanded by the fashion world as something wrong. The problem arrives when such reaction ends up as a justification for obesity.

    Fat acceptance versus skinny models is a fight between two evils, that of total abdication of personal responsibility versus shallow posturing via corporate marketing.

    This topic is certainly “Weimerican”, but not particularly worrying in my opinion. Being fat will never be good for you, and everybody knows it. You can demand acceptance, but it will always be apparent, not real.

    I say this because I abhor shallow left-wing activism, which is mirrored by the Alt-Lite types in issues like this one, with Milo for instance advocating bullying fat girls into losing weight. Small, small potatoes.

  5. I wish you expand on your pipeline theory. LOVED that!

  6. Like the photo. That itself can engender some discussion. The body positive movement at some point went beyond fat acceptance to include extra-body things such as piercings, tattoos, and unnatural hair coloring. Insofar as fat acceptable, I allow for wiggle room. Looking at the bodies in that photo: O, Y, O, and E look pretty good to me. Taking into account the tattoos, only Y is left standing.

  7. In the picture only Y doesn’t look like a circus freak.
