Calvin Klein In Trouble Over Plus Sized Girl Comment
Even though Calvin Klein didn't make the comment, the model did. I couldn't paste some of the tweets.

http://time.com/3576576/calvin-klein-nev...itter-did/

Quote:Internet users are outraged over a "plus-size" campaign that never happened

On Sunday, Twitter drew from its bottomless well of outrage and took aim at Calvin Klein for apparently calling a beautiful, slender model “plus-sized,” which in certain circles is the moral equivalent of eating a baby orphan.

One problem: Calvin Klein never called Myla Dalbesio plus-sized. The campaign wasn’t a plus-size campaign, and the line of underwear isn’t for plus-sized women. The Twitter controversy was actually ignited by an interview Dalbesio gave to Elle, during which she describes her thoughts on being cast as a “plus size” model for other brands — not Calvin Klein.

In fact, she even said in the interview that she was impressed during the shoot at how she wasn’t treated differently from any of the other models. “I’m not the biggest girl on the market but I’m definitely bigger than all the girls [Calvin Klein] has ever worked with, so that is really intimidating,” she said. “No one even batted an eye.”

She continued: “It’s not like [Calvin Klein] released this campaign and were like ‘Whoa, look, there’s this plus size girl in our campaign.’ They released me in this campaign with everyone else; there’s no distinction. It’s not a separate section for plus size girls.”

At size 10, Dalbesio is bigger than the sample-sized models, but smaller than most plus-sized models. That’s why she thought being included in the Calvin Klein shoot was such a big deal. “I’m in the middle,” she said. “I’m not skinny enough to be with the skinny girls and I’m not large enough to be with the large girls and I haven’t been able to find my place. This [campaign] was such a great feeling.”

Dalbesio confirmed to TIME that “plus size” was “never part of the picture in any way” while she was working on the Calvin Klein shoot. Calvin Klein did not immediately respond to TIME’s requests for comment, but said in a statement obtained by the New York Times that “these images are intended to communicate that our new line is more inclusive and available in several silhouettes in an extensive range of sizes.”

But those on Twitter who were annoyed missed the part where Calvin Klein never called Dalbesio plus-sized, probably because they never bothered to actually read Dalbesio’s interview. All they needed was the brand, the “plus-size” label and the picture of a Dalbesio holding her stomach to go into full-on outrage mode:

True, it’s problematic that Dalbesio considers herself “bigger” than all the other girls Calvin Klein has ever cast. But the brand made a big step forward here by putting a model who would otherwise be cast in the “plus-size” category in an industry with serious body-perspective issues, into their “normal” campaign. It’s not as groundbreaking as casting a model who’s size 14 or 16, but it is progress.

Bitches on Twitter failing reading comprehension.....not shocked at all. They can't even focus their outrage on the right people and should never be taken seriously. WB by the way and that rack, nice.

Cause gay dudes run fashion and don't want a woman's body to interfere with the clothes they make. This has two consequences - legit hot chicks can't get modeling gigs and fat girls use "plus sized" models as some kind of justification for fat being beautiful.

She is plus sized because of the standards imposed by the gay men who run the fashion industry.

Twitter users being outraged without knowing what they're talking about? Is this a new thing?

Can you elaborate on why gay designers like to make clothes super slim/skinny? What's the point in that?

The idea is that designers basically want a walking clothes hanger that doesn't take away any attention from the clothes. A lot of them would also be fairly plain-looking if you saw them on the street.

Size 10 is the upper limit of what I find attractive, but at 5'11" she would be disgusting as a size 2 (my lower limit). I like Nordic and Slavic women because of their size, and this chick would easily get some love from me.

However, like most models, she photographs well but is otherwise not too memorable.

As per usual the internet is just drunk and bored again. Looking for a fight to take out their insecure feelings.

RE: Calvin Klein In Trouble Over Plus Sized Girl Comment
Controversies about plus-size models don't surprise me. They're almost guaranteed to happen because of how delusional most women are about the subject of weight. Basically, the fatties have one idea of what plus-size is, and the fags running fashion have another. This makes the fatties very angry.

Anyone who's glanced at an online dating site has witnessed fatness creep, in which fatties choose self-descriptions full of words not typically used to describe being overweight. As an effect, now average and athletic mean fat because this is how these women see themselves.

On the other hand, the fashion industry has a completely different standard of weight. Bone-thin is the average for high fashion, so a girl who's curvy in the traditional sense (and not curvy in the sense of having a gut, udders, and a tank ass) will be plus-size in that world.

For the fatties, however, plus-size models are supposed to represent them. Never mind that most of them are not buying expensive clothes, or that the fashion industry is not in the business of making people feel good, but rather showing off the clothes. What they want is a bitch who looks like Lindy West on the cover of Vogue or whatever, and have Precious walking down the runway in Milan. They want fat to be cool or at least acknowledged, but that will never happen. So when they hear about a plus-size model who is actually skinnier than the typical American girl, tempers will flare.

I'm sure the word outrage used to mean something serious, now it just cracks me up as I know it'd be used to describe a bunch of retarded chicks or faggots banging on the keyboards and screaming at their monitor screens.

Why would any business, Calvin Klein included, be afraid of them?
