Sports Illustrated opened the flood gates of fat bodied acceptance by allowing plus-sized bikini model Robyn Lawley onto the actual feature pages of their swimsuit edition. Previously, SI had insisted that all of its models resemble shipwrecked cadavers before being subjected to Eurafroasian cultural amalgamating in the We Pals tool on Photoshop. SI is patting themselves on the Time Warner corporate diversity program back for letting this size 10 into the mix. I’m not sure if they’re also running the photos where the Namibian anorexics throw buckets of pigs blood on Lawley and taunt her for stealing their monthly pistachio. The idea of using not fat women to represent fat acceptance is pretty fucking genius. I hope this catches on. I need more interviews with Angelina Jolie talking about how she really does eat sundaes all day long and can’t put on any weight.
