“She looks very healthy”: Toronto reacts to plus sized Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition

David MenziesMission Specialist

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has hit the stands. And one of the models is super-sized.

Is her inclusion a celebration of a diverse body type?

Or is this promoting an unhealthy body type in the name of political correctness?

We hit the streets of Toronto to find out...

For a great perspective on the future of obesity watch the animated movie WALLEE. As the centuries pass humans become heavier. Eventually obesity is the standard body type and humans lose the ability to walk. Everyone gets around in mobile lounge chairs.

So it seems it is not whether you are healthy or not (as an objective standard) but whether you “feel” healthy. Kinda similar to the gender movement that says I feel like a boy/girl even if my body parts say otherwise. Who needs facts when you have feelings?

They could careless whether people are healthy or not. The goal is population control. They are just using overweight women to further this goal, under the guise that fat is beautiful!

…and on the beach for crying out loud, its just too much flesh falling out all over the place. Our population needs to get fit, not normalize fat.

…“it’s about time Sports Illustrated, and magazines like this that have exploited women’s bodies for years, finally show what many, many women actually look like, especially after bearing children.”

Why?

Its supposed to be a celebration of ideal beauty not diverse dumpy. We all know we probably can’t look like that, but any body type can improve. Men buy that mag. I doubt they buy it for dumpy or obese. What are sales like with the fat girls as models? Some men may have a thing for extra large, but not most.
Obese is not how most woman’s bodies are naturally, even after a few kids. The left wants to normalize fat. Let them, but I reserve the right to think its gross.

These whackadoodles need a reality check, being overweight is not sexy, it is not healthy, and physicians know this. Contrary to what these whackadoodles are pushing being fat is NOT the new sexy.

All kidding aside, it’s about time Sports Illustrated, and magazines like this that have exploited women’s bodies for years, finally show what many, many women actually look like, especially after bearing children.
To have developed to this size without having children etc. though is a health issue.
Many oversized young women turn to lesbianism to seek love and affection because that’s all there is. They will resort to any form of affection because they just don’t have a healthy self image and cannot take more rejection (which could also have resulted from a parent rejecting and/or ridiculing them).

RON JOSEPH:
Right on! Plus, some men can’t handle an attractive woman, because they can’t handle her….

But, some men love big women and it never fails, these men stay with these women through thick or thin…

‘I think its a liberal issue to normalize things that really shouldn’t be normalized.’
I agree fella, repeating such bunk shows how weak minded they are. Liberal indoctrination makes your brain fall out your ears. Its ‘stupid’ inclusion. Discriminating between stupid and smart is what has advanced mankind. Its a good thing people.
‘Put on the breaks, not celebrate it’
I’m with the guy with the backwards hat.

Its cruel, for everyone. Painful.
Those women saying ‘its beautiful, if you have the body why not show it’, are not exactly being honest or they are nuts. ‘If she’s happy with her life who’s to say’. Doctors would say. The model will have a heart attack, diabetes, back, hip and knee problems or some other ailment directly linked to morbid obesity before she is 35. The model is MORBIDLY obese and looks like someone tied a tarp, sail or parachute to her but it wasn’t big enough. Being ‘kind’ can enable and even be dangerous. (what if it blew off in a wind) Sorry, lefty stupidity makes me want to poke. They make me do it.
Get woke or go broke is right!

We should change the spelling of diversity to die-versity because we are killing our culture with what’s being forced on us .
Why do we no longer have the freedom to pick and choose and be selective regarding what we say and do and experience. If I want to purchase a magazine that is congruent with my tastes , I should have that freedom without someone deciding for me.
Our freedom of choice now has boundaries set by these kooks that enforce their ideals and attitudes on us by caprice.
Freedom is fading away ,SAD.

Beauty is, and always has been in the eye of the beholder.

I think I’m beginning to hate the left…now that I’ve lost all sympathy and tolerance for their mental disorders, and it’s accompanying irrational, delusional acting out and consequent destruction of my country, culture and way of life!
I refuse to live in lefty-liberal-backwardsland.

I liked the interview with the guy that had the slim girlfriend. He was saying that the model was healthy looking and giving her other compliments while his girlfriend or wife was laughing. She knew that if she gained 100lbs like the model, the locks to the house would be changed instantly.

Medical doctors would be able to tell which people were obese and which weren’t and the obese ones should not be featured on magazine covers as though obesity is just a life choice.
