Last week we saw Tess Holliday on the cover of Cosmopolitan, and it definitely caused a discussion. The idea of a morbidly obese woman appearing on the front of a magazine was considered powerful and inspiring by some, and dangerous by others.
It’s interesting how the modelling industry has gone from anorexic to obese. It’s a conscious and political decision, and certainly not one made by men. For a long time, the appearance of models has been blamed on straight men – but the research shows that men simply like healthy women in between anorexic and obese.
