I shared this photo on facebook that was originally posted on Stop the Worldwide War on Girls' page. Here is the original post:

A blogger at SkinnyGossip who claims to be a former model who now works in the fashion industry has essentially declared covergirl and swimsuit model Kate Upton... fat. Can you believe it? Read for yourself. And for the record, we strenuously beg to differ.

"Now, there's nothing wrong with an average girl like Kate being confident. She's pretty, she bangs down the runway like she owns it, and I totally commend her for her bravery... Huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, terrible body definition — she looks like a squishy brick. Is this what American women are 'striving' for now? The lazy, lardy look? Have we really gotten so fat in this country that Kate is the best we can aim for? Sorry, but: eww!" (Photo from

In addition to the fact that the skinny girl blogger can't write well, her words are horribly damaging and unkind. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, of course. I don't have an issue with that, but to imply that the lingerie model is lazy and call her fat, complete with a resounding "eww" at the end, as if the sight of the model is repulsive, goes way too far. Is it any wonder so many young girls have eating and body image issues when you have crappy writers sending these kinds of messages? Keep in mind that this isn't the most flattering image of Kate, but let me put it to my readers: Do you think the lady in the photos here is fat? I bet there are millions of women who would love to have such awful body definition. <---insert eye roll. My guess is that the skinny chick needs to calm her nastiness with a milkshake. Shit like this pisses me off, and I'd love to get into a face-to-face debate with miss judgy pants. I doubt someone like Kate would give two shits about what some unknown blogger who doesn't know a thing about grammar is saying, but I still find the trend of women tearing down other women based on their outer appearance unhealthy and quite lame. 


  1. No, she's not fat. Looks fine to me.

  2. I think so too. If that's fat, I'd probably be considered heavy!

  3. This is not necessarily relevant, but she is supposedly dating Justin Verlander, the Detroit Tigers pitcher who won both the Cy Young award and the MVP award last year.

  4. I'm assuming he's quite fine with her body.

  5. People really piss me off!!! a;dlfjalskdfjasdflkj
