If It's Monday, It Must Be Time For Another Group of Greatly Overweight Women To Strip Down to Prove that Fat is Beautiful

These are not the kind of "good thick" chicks that the fashion industry calls "Plus Size" despite having ballpark-normal-range bodyfat. These gals are legitimately beefy.

I don't like picking on fat people, being one myself. (Though attempting to be a not-so-fat person.)

So I'm not going to attack these women for being overweight.

Though I will question all the terrible, terrible tattoos.

I will, however, question this weird mix of narcissistic masochism that compels people to show off their flaws.

I don't know on that last one -- I can kind of make out, in my mind, the argument that to openly flaunt one's flaws is a sort of bravery.

Except for the fact that these women are proclaiming these are not flaws they're exposing at all, but rather their charms.

I don't get this whole "Fat Acceptance Movement." I guess it's just yet another manifestation of our Participation Trophy Non-Culture, with the specific kick of women now being empowered by every single thing in their lives.
