If you’ve been watching the news you may have heard of the Abercrombie and Fitch scandal Basically, they will no longer carry women’s clothing above a size 10 because the CEO claims they only want attractive people in their clothes. RIDICULOUS. The best argument I have heard so far has been from Ellen Degeneres.
Here are a few tidbits from her video.
Since when is something over size 10 a plus size?
There is a size 0. 0 is nothing.
Now they have a double 0. What are we aspiring to? Does these jeans make my butt look invisible?
Beauty isn’t between a 0 and a size 8. Beauty isn’t a number at all. It’s not physical.
What you look like on the outside is not what makes you cool at all. What is important is that you are healthy, that is the most important thing. That you are healthy and happy.
And the video – it’s worth a watch. Not only because she’s funny but because she genuinely has some important things to say.
P.S. My list of people I wish to meet now goes like this.
1) President Obama
3) Darren Criss
Ellen has now surpassed Darren Criss aka Blaine from Glee.
