Back in May, when the media was making a huge deal about the Kanye West/Kim Kardashian wedding, I said that I would never write about that family in this blog again.
I am slightly taking that statement back.
Kim’s little sister 18 year old Kendall Jenner, whether we care or not, has become a model. Some within the modeling industry have called this girl fat.
I have two questions.
- First, what message does this send to young girls who are healthy? It’s hard enough to be a young girl these days with all of these conflicting messages, then you are told by some Madison Ave or Hollywood exec that you have to be a size 2 to be happy and accomplished.
- Secondly, what message does it send to people who are actually overweight to the point where they are suffering from Diabetes, Heart disease, etc? What kind of message are these people receiving when a news story like this appears?
In case these modeling executives have had their heads in the sand recently, the #1 song in the country is Megan Trainor’s All About The Base, a song that appreciates and encourages women to be happy with who they are, regardless of the size they wear.
