This trollcat submitted by Kathleen Shimp with the following (slightly edited for clarity) commentary:
“The size zero model controversy is dumb. Because it’s true that only fat cows who are jealous get upset about models being too skinny, right?
This trollcat was inspired by a Karl Lagerfeld quote again- this time about a German magazine deciding to use only “real” women instead of models.
He said basically the people who get upset about thin models are fat moms sitting on the couch eating chips. Which, if not diplomatic, does have a grain of truth to it. (I think he sometimes is being a troll IRL, and gets a kick out of people overreacting.)
As someone who has indeed been model-thin most of my life (not currently, but am getting back there faster than I’d thought, as if it matters), I do get tired of reading only plus-sized women referred to as “real”. It is very annoying to think most of my life I’ve been, what? Unreal? Whatevs.”
