Look who just dropped the gauntlet to the ‘Big Is Beautiful’ movement… ‘Bigly’.
Sports Illustrated was celebrated for having a ‘plus-size’ model for their swimsuit edition.
And THAT is what he’s reacting to. The swimsuit edition, if we’re honest, is a marketing ploy for SI, it’s to generate interest in bros who would normally catch their sports news on tv or online for free.
The women in that magazine — while not actually flashing the camera like the skin mags do — were chosen because they possess the ability to make a man’s pulse quicken a little, to draw a man to pick up the magazine. To flip through it.
But, like ESPN, SI has buckled to political pressures. They’ve added plus sized models like Tabria Majors to the mix of other models like Kate Upton.
Good idea, or bad idea? David Hookstead is poking the hornet’s nest:
For some inexplicable reason, American entertainment outlets think male consumers are entertained by “plus-sized” models. They’re not. Trust me when I say that there’s a reason men read the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine, and it has nothing to do with the seemingly unending supply of bigger models.
…Men want to look at those women because, generally speaking, we don’t see them walking around the streets. That’s why they’re supermodels. It’s because women like them rarely exist. I see women like Majors on my walk to lunch.
I understand that this garbage is done to push a social narrative and nobody has the balls to criticize out of fear of being called a bigot or much worse. If I’m the only one willing to carry this banner and fight the good fight then so be it.
I can no longer allow this to happen, and nobody in America should tolerate it either. Stop celebrating obesity and go back to giving me hot women in tiny bikinis. Is that too much to ask? – DailyCaller
Has he got a point?
Remember when we pushed magazines to STOP having ‘Heroin Chic’ models who looked something like this?
Wasn’t it because we didn’t want to promote unhealthy body standards for women?
And didn’t Michelle Obama spend her time lecturing us about healthy eating, and meddling in school lunches?
How do we square that with ‘celebrating’ obesity? Isn’t obesity a critical predictor for some of society’s most lethal and preventable illnesses?
Is it ‘hurtful’ to speak so plainly? What do YOU Think of plus size models?
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
It has been said that daughters are God’s revenge on fathers for the kind of men they were when they were young. Some would say that both Doug Giles and I, given our infamous pasts, are charter members of that club. However, Doug and I know that his two wonderful daughters and my equally wonderful daughter and two granddaughters are truly God’s fantastic gift. With the wisdom of hindsight and experience Doug has written the ultimate manual for dads on raising righteous and rowdy daughters who will go out into the world well prepared- morally, physically, intellectually and with joyful hearts- to be indomitable and mighty lionesses in our cultural jungle. Through every raucous and no-holds-barred page, Doug, the incomparable Dad Drill Sergeant, puts mere men through the paces to join the ranks of the few, the proud, and the successful fathers of super daughters. The proof of Doug Giles’ gold-plated credentials are Hannah and Regis Giles- two of the most fantastic, great hearted and accomplished young ladies I have ever known. This is THE BOOK that I will be giving the father of my two precious five and three year old granddaughters. Tiger Mom meet Lion Dad! — Pat Caddell Fox News Contributor —
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E. Cupp Best Selling Author & Fox News Analyst
If I ever have daughters I m going to raise them up like Doug Giles has done: strong, proudly feminine, tough as nails, Proverbs 31 girls. ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’ is an excellent guide which shows how a father can raise up real women in a society that desperately needs them. —-Dana Loesch, Editor BigJournalism.com, Talk Radio Host, Television Commentator
