I don't know you, and therefor can't tell whether or not you're full of food, but you are definitely full of ****!
LOL at full of food... I am a super fit woman with no excess body fat. I am simply not going to sit here and throw out a bunch of BS aboout caring for the health of fat people. I dont care about that, and neither do you. Of course you just proved that you dont care by lobbing a fattie joke my way, merely because I dissented with your opinion.

Truth hurts, huh?

You're right, nobody cares about that sh--.




R.I.P. to the woman in question however, it is always sad (for someone) when a life is lost.

Really? Okay, since you asked...(I bolded it so that it would be easy for you. You're welcome.)

Don't believe it? Put down that bowl of ice cream, go see your physician and request a stress test and have your blood checked for cholesterol levels. If no one else cares, you at the very least owe it to yourself.
Also, I couldn't help but notice that after I called you out for your unintelligent comments, you edited your post to look like this:

Default Please, can someone explain this to me?

I am a 68 year old male, and I know nothing about fashion. I don't care about it, and I am uninterested in learning about it. However, there is one thing I am curious to learn right now. (Although I don't frequent this forum, the thread title here caught my eye.) And that is, how can there be such a thing as a "plus size model"? I thought models were people who got photographed to promote stuff in advertising. Who would want to look at someone who is "plus sized" in a photograph? Yes, I am aware I am betraying an older mind-set; after all I am old. But I am still interested in the responses to my question. (And I will not be surprised if some of them are hostile).

Because women and men come in all shapes and sizes. If you make clothing for plus sized people, you sort of need people who fit in those clothes properly to help you advertise them. Hence the term, "plus size model." Many of them are quite beautiful, too.

PS: I also have no clue regarding fashion and beauty. Like you, the title of the thread lured me in.

no they don't care -- they just make a thread about it every other day, updating us on the fact that they still hate fat people. good to know.

that's like saying who would want to look at senior citizens with silver hair, modeling? anybody that's reading magazines because there's different types of models in there. pick one up and see for yourself.

I thought it would be helpful to post some typical plus sized models:


She is taking bikini top lessons from Kate Upton apparently
