‘Fatkini’ Retina Bombings
Social revolution doesn’t need to involve firing rifles at soda bottles, leafing through the Anarchist Cookbook, or marching alongside fellow degenerates holding signs emblazoned with fallacious slogans. Now all you need is your lardtastic bod, a Lane Bryant bikini and a digicam.
The whole concept makes as much sense as protesting the NBA by pitting the high school chess club against the physics club at streetball. With PC-land rules in effect, travel and double dribble would be tossed out as they are discriminatory toward marginalized, athletically-challenged participants.
Meanwhile on the blue orb not revolving around Häagen-Daz Rum Raisin and The Secret, The Mighty Dorks’ have pissed into the wind. Turns out the existence of air-ball shooting amateurs doesn’t prove the NBA needs to lower its standards.
Are these aspiring ‘fatkini’ pinups suggesting that we need token incompetents in every occupation? After all, Victoria’s Secret models specialize in maintaining the most boner-inducing figures possible. That’s not societal bias, it’s biology.
Runway models can veer towards sickly-looking, as this can happen when arty, gay men decide what an avant-garde human frame should look like. VS models are chosen for their wide sex appeal in order to sell lingerie, thus the homogeny. Quirky personal preferences in beauty certainly all can’t be satisfied when reaching mass audiences.
Who wants to see obese women in Victoria’s Secret catalogues, Elle, or DC Comics beside obese women themselves, liberal la-la land feminists and fringe chubby chasers?
These aren’t some BBW niche market rags. They’re for-profit businesses that need to cater to their core demographics and not spark nightmares.
Getting back to the Mail Online article, here’s the skinny on the circus conductor:
While Gabi looks presentable due to her “enormous boobs,” some of the other shots are mini terrorist attacks on the visual cortex. I refrained from posting more examples as this would be akin to leaving a flaming turd on the doorstep of my readers then ringing the doorbell.
