Having failed to by the PLUS SIZE MODELS IN GLAMOUR MAGAZINE OH MY GOD THESE WOMEN ARE SO ENORMOUS THEY HAVE BREASTS edition of Glamour (because, like, I never by Glamour – I know it fits in your handbag, but so what? A sheep would fit in my handbag and a sheep doesn’t make you feel like a fat sack o shit. Not so much) I have been interested to read some of the fallout. Alongside the people writing ‘barf’ under some of the pictures of gorgeous girls with bellies there’s been a raft of interesting writing, not least in the blogging fat-o-sphere (lookit! I am ‘in the know’!). Below are some of the pieces I got to the end of without wanting to stab myself or someone else..
Ebony Inspired blog – interesting and surprising info on plus size models in ads
The Judgement of Paris – if you’ve got the time to read aaaaaaaall about plus size models…
Two Whole Cakes – good to read for general interesting perspective on fattery and good links to other bloggers
Fat Nutritionist – does what it says on the tin and she is fabulous (a video of herself eating a Cadbury’s Creme egg AND NOTHING BAD HAPPENS! Well, why not?)
