Little Bit Of A Rant
I know my last post was a bit of a series one but I just wanted to write one about something this is really bugging me and that is something a lot of people have been talking about. So I thought I'd have my little say about it, the topic is body image in the media.
It seems to me in the media you are never safe when it comes to your body. If you are a size 8 and you have had a big lunch you are either piling on the pounds or you are pregnant. If you are bigger then a size 8 you are considered fat and everyone wants to comment on it.
The reason I decided to write about this is because of all the things that is being said in the media about TOWIE star Gemma Collins. Yes ok she left the jungle after a couple of days big woop!!! Why is it that people such as the ''everybody hater'' Katie Hopkins has to pass judgment on her size. Just because Gemma is a curvy girl doesn't mean that is the reason for her leaving the jungle, she had personal issues as to why she wanted to go and why do people find it appropriate to jump straight to the weight of people.
When I meet a person I judge them on their personality and comments that they pass, I do not make a judgement on a person as to there weight, gender, race or anything, but it seems totally fine for the media to pass judgement on people because of this.
The amount of times I have been in a shop and seen magazines with titles about people loosing weight or gaining weight, SO WHAT!!!!
They are people at the end of the day, there is so much more that these magazines can write about rather then drawing attention to peoples weight. Why is it anyone else's business.
It is the magazines that do these stories and particular fashion designers that have made weight an issue. I have been reading a book called 'The Vogue Facter'' written by Kirstie Clements, who used to be the editor of Australian Vogue, in the book she covers this area about why the magazines rarely put plus size women in their magazines and it all comes down to fashion designers, they do sample sizes that are sent out to the magazines and they feel better about their clothes being on size 6 or smaller models, well I have one thing to say about that.
THE AVERAGE WOMEN IS NOT A SIZE 6!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe it is just me but I feel that designers are out of this world to think that every single women is a single digit dress size. In the UK the average dress size is 14-16, so why cant they make clothes for us average women?
Sorry to have such a rant, and jump from one topic to another but it was really getting to me, RANT OVER.
See ya Soon Guys and Gals
