The new empowerment

This was Tweeted by “plus size” model Tess Holiday.

This is the new “female empowerment.”

Make no mistake, this is dangerous.

It’s not (just) the obesity.  She has garish tattoos, a nose ring, and gothability fashion.  Everything about her is tuned to be off putting.

I’ve said before that I like a full figured model.

She is not full figured, she is grotesque with a giant Miss Piggy on her forearm.

She is like a gangsta Marilyn Monroe drawing, taking something classic and beautiful and turning it into something, tacky and aggressively ugly.

She is a walking piece of modern art.

The only reason I know of her is that she is more famous for picking fights established fashion brands like Victoria’s Secret and others for not having “plus size” models.

She is a Social Justice model.

Her “empowerment” is a challenge.

I dare you not to call me beautiful.  I dare you not to say I am gorgeous.  I dare you to say that I am too fat and tattooed and off-putting to model your line.  If you do I will bring down the wrath of the progressive, social justice internet on your brand and call you fatphobic and bigoted and racist.  

This is the new feminist empowerment, and it is awful.

  1. Sorry, I was mistaken.

    This is not bullying.

    It is extortion.

    “Nice shop you have here. Would be a shame if something happened to it.”

    The only difference between what this waste of human skin is doing and what the thugs running a protection racket did is the payout. They wanted cash, she wants fame.

    1. She wants cash. She is a model. She’s in it for a payday (both money and the kind with peanuts) and pretends it’s virtuous with social justice.

  2. There’s a difference between “plus size model” and “blue whale”. She’s way past “plus size”.

    And I dare you not to call me beautiful. I dare you not to say I am gorgeous. I dare you to say that I am too fat and tattooed and off-putting to model your line. If you do I will bring down the wrath of the progressive, social justice internet on your brand and call you fatphobic and bigoted and racist. is way past empowerment all the way to blackmail, or extortion, as CBMTTek says.

    OK, you’re not beautiful. You’re not gorgeous. You’re too fat, too tattooed and to off-putting.

    I don’t have a product line. I’m not a business. And I have two words for you: ketogenic diet. Look it up.

  3. Let’s glamorize over weight so women can die young from diabetes, cancer, kidney failure or heart disease which kills more woman that any other cause. Way to go ladies your the last thing you’re gender needs.
