Victoria’s Secret didn’t seem too terribly phased by Buzzfeed’s un-Victoria’s Secret Lingerie Fashion show. The least discussed facet of body shaming is how it’s almost entirely weaponized by woman. Victoria’s Secret’s unrealistic anorexic chicks sell six billion worth of skimpy clothing a year. The “real women” models are selling a fraction of one percent of that amount. Ardent “empowerment” folks will seek to legislate against body type discrimination because they understand the practical battle is already lost. For the same reason the good Christians vote to keep blow jobs illegal in Texas. An empty gesture to pretend you can stop all that Yellow Rose sucking.
People for a perfect world don’t have to worry about shareholders or bosses or bottomlines. Twitter demands very little of its opinion makers. A mortgage and mouths to feed means you’re hiring skinny chicks for your merchandise shoots until the Federal agents come with guns and an edict for more fat. Half of this crusade is really about taking things away from people that you don’t think they should be enjoying. Slender women, smokes, booze, paralyzing helmet to helmet contact. This is why you hire Hungarian models and Surinamese manufacturers. America has slowly become the world’s wet blanket.
