Fashion & Style News: Fox & ABC Don’t Like Big Girls!

April 28, 2010
So what, a big girl can’t be sexy?

By now you’ve heard the hoopla surrounding two major networks refusal to air a Lane Bryant commercial or perhaps you’ve seen the commercial in which a curvier (nee heavier) woman is seen prancing around in lingerie. Well let’s call a spade a spade. We all know Fox has been accused of many things, discrimination and racism included. ABC? Eh, never watched much on their station either. Quite frankly I was a little insulted by both networks blatant and insulting behavior towards women with heavier body frames.

For those who aren’t a size 2, like moi, you are basically saying to hell with you, you can’t be sexy. So is it safe to assume that every Egor looking, small penis having executive at these networks is married or cohabiting with a size 2 or less Victoria Secret-looking woman? Bulls***. I’ve seen the wives of some of these execs on the red carpet and they ain’t all pretty. Or shall we talk about those pathetic VPs and who have to “rent” dates from some local escort agency because their size 0 wife cleaned them out and took them for every dime they’ve got.

Let’s face it Rupert Murdoch, Wendy Dang dang sure ain’t with your for your looks. Hey, I wouldn’t be surprised if she was slowly slipping you rat poison in your tiramisu at Mr. Chows. With so many models suffering from body image issues you would think that America would be over the bony ass models with erected spines that look as though they are two seconds away from snapping like twigs. Media and fashion are the worst when it comes to body image, let’s not forget the Vanity Fair cover of waif then, pale-faced models as the epitome of beauty.  So now because 

What I’m more irritated about is Reebok’s new commercial showing nothing but shots of women’s derriere’s in highly…umm…racy positions. Now I have a small shapely tush but even those shots made me wince. What has the freaking world come to? Sending the message that large women can’t be sexy is an absolute crock. BOYCOTT!!

Check out the actual commercial footage below.
