Today, while I was checking my e-mails, I ran across a story on my AOL news feed that intrigued me. And disgusted me at the same time. I had heard her name, but wasn’t fully aware of who she was. A 20-year-old model named Kate Upton. Have you seen her? She graces the covers of magazines such as GQ and Sports Illustrated so obviously she’s gorgeous. I’m adding multiple photos so that you too can see how wrong the critics are. You’ll agree with me, I think…
This article went on to say how people are giving her grief and insulting her with terms such as “thick, vulgar, almost pornographic.” For starters, she’s only 20 and she’s already been on the covers of these big name magazines. It’s outrageous that someone has the nerve to call her fat. She is nowhere near fat. She looks great and it’s a nice change to see a model (who also does runway shows) that is not anorexic or close to it. No one honestly wants to see women who have every bone sticking out. That’s not attractive and it sure doesn’t look healthy. Kate actually said, “I’m not going to starve just to be thin. I want to enjoy life and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable.” She just won a lot of fans. I guarantee it!
It’s extremely sad that healthy women, who most likely work their butts off, are criticized so heavily for showing an ounce of curviness. Kate probably is a size 3. For all you “curvy” women out there, we know that’s very tiny!! Even if she is a bigger size, she still is gorgeous and I know most, if not all, men out there would say she’s sexy! She’s successful and has a gorgeous body.
It is very sad that our society has come to this.
I do feel very bad for the women out there who suffer from eating disorders. I am NOT dogging you in any way. I am just so sorry our society has made you think you have to be skinny to be beautiful. Every woman of every size is beautiful. As long as you’re healthy and comfortable in your own skin, that’s what really matters. Am I right or am I right?
I hope the pressure people put on girls of all ages to be thin doesn’t destroy our race. Well, anymore than it already has. SO many women die of anorexia.
I hope eventually Kate Upton and all the other “curvy” models and anyone in the public’s eye will continue being their beautiful selves and ignore what the ridiculous critics have to say. They should be a model for a day and see how easy it is. That would shut them up.
So keep your chin up, Kate and you’ll continue to be awesome!
Well I better quit ranting and go do some chores. Happy hump day, bloggers!
