Men have been obsessing about ladies like that for a very, very long time indeed

Yumi Nur - apparently opinions vary

I would rather that they use women likw Yumi of more realistic proportions in modeling and advertising, if only to help combat the many cases of eating disorders of young women who are persuaded by the media that they need to look like the "Super models", who are stick thin to be attractive.

You mean verbally attacked by a load of left, woke, politicall-correct, yogurt-sipping, sandal-wearing, bearded, unwashed lefties who disagreed with him ;D

I'm sure they do.  She has a nice face but the rest of here is, what can I say, unusual.  No, bizarre is the word I'm searching for.

As far as I can see, plus size is the new normal.

In fairness, these are his actual comments.

"Rage away, panderers. And tell me you believe that such images are not conscious and cynical manipulation by the oh-so virtuous politically correct

and

"It's a conscious progressive attempt to manipulate & retool the notion of beauty, reliant on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned & properly changed by those who know better.

Having read a chunk it's clear he's been laughed off for being an utter twonk; especially amusing as he's a "free speech" advocate who only wants to spew bile without consequence :D

and this is what I find disturbing...just as much as size 0 models.

Acceptance that not being a healthy weight is normal is really bad, especially for those in the younger age, 20's and 30's, brackets.

I just see the use of plus size models by clothing retailers and advertises not as acceptance but merely a cynical way to drive sales.

Most people need to eat less and move more...

Actually, I believe it is the old normal.  In past times (several hundred years ago) a woman was considered more attractive if carrying more weight: kept you warm in bed.  Attractiveness can be seen as a fashionable issue but studies have generally shown that men universally seem to agree on what is attractive; that all ends in confusion for me - is it universal around the world or a question of cultural agreement?

Maybe the whole issue is suspect.
