I read once that in the US the average woman is a size 14. I know that even compared to average, which is “obese” in the eyes of the media, even compared to that I am the fat girl.
Did I mention that I chose “soylagordita” as my Weight Watchers screen name?
Anyway, you have to understand that that’s my perspective as I read this:
My first thought was, “wow, finally!” Then I read on to discover that the plus-size model is a size 12.
A 12? Are you kidding?!!!!??!!
I know, I know… media does not represent reality. And, really, my weight is not healthy or ideal. Yes, I know all of this. But I’m still indignant that a size 12 is considered plus size for this campaign.
