I feel enraged when I see a female who is healthy, toned, and probably no more than a size 8 (read: 3 sizes smaller than our country’s average) referred to as plus-size. For the love of God, Robyn Lawley has a damn thigh gap. I get that it’s a modeling “industry term” but I still don’t understand how they get away with this bullshit. Can we not call them “normal-size models?” I guess then we’d have to refer to the 5’10 girls who wear size 0s and strut down the fashion week runways as “underweight models,” which is obviously an ABSURD idea. Or how about stripping away the toxic labels altogether and calling them all just “models” and letting the public see what they want? Nah, that would never work.

This plus-size blogger needs a drink.
