Glamour magazine recently listed Amy Schumer as one of the most “Inspiring” larger women. This set Schumer off, but not because of the obvious. It was something much bigger than that.
The fashion industry these days is absolutely disgusting. They have created a ‘special edition’ feature for what they consider “plus sized women.” Who are they to declare what is plus sized and what is not?
First of all, Schumer is not what is considered plus sized. She wears a size 6-8, whereas what the fashion industry considers plus-sized is a 16 in America. Glamour Magazine recently put Schumer on the cover of their magazine for this, and that is what sparked the flame.
She recently spoke out about Glamour saying, “There’s nothing wrong with being plus size,” she wrote. “Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag put me in their plus size issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn’t feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that this is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool Glamour not glamourous.”
What Schumer is really getting at is the label. No one should be labeled for their body type. You are who you are and you should not be judged for how you were made, every girl or women should feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin.
It needs to stop.
