  1. blame it on the companies that hire stick-figure models depicting the glamorous lifestyle… A woman needs curves! A real woman has curves!

  2. You don’t have to just blame it on companies. Just get around men who start running their mouths about “no fatties” and other insulting items they think are funny. Usually those are the same guys not getting laid and completely confused as to why, but they can’t see past making asinine comments they view as witty.

  3. what happened to thinking healthy is beautiful? Keeping in mind that “healthy” is slightly different for everyone, of course. And healthy doesn’t mean going to the gym 5 times a week and only eating fruit. Our bodies are all shaped differently, we should see beauty in all of them. just my two cents.

    Hard to decide which picture is more depressing…

    This is exactly why there is such a problem. The overweight girl is definitely overweight, but comments such as this one drive her to the other edge, which is a heck of a lot more unhealthy – physically and emotionally – than she was before.
