Chic At Any Size!

April 6, 2016

 

Amy Schumer recently called out Glamour for classifying her as “plus size” along with Melissa McCarthy, Adele and Ashley Graham in their “Chic At Any Size” issue. “Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? Not cool glamour not glamourous,” Schumer tweeted to her over 3.94M followers.

 

While I can accept the fact she may not feel she deserves the categorization, as a self-proclaimed feminist, would she be offended if she were placed on the “most beautiful,” “funniest,” “richest,” etc. list if none of those labels fit her either?

 

Everyone has their own views on “plus size.” Some want to remove the term from our vocabulary altogether. However, the truth of the matter is we are not all alike. Many of us who do fall into the plus-size category, embrace the term. To rally against it, turns it into something taboo, derogatory, or unpleasant.

 

If “plus size” needs to be banished, we should look into removing all classifications—rich versus poor, black versus white, beautiful versus ugly, and the list goes on and on.

 

One last thought… Glamour’s special edition issue is not about being plus-size, it’s about being “Chic At Any Size.” So, wouldn’t “any size” include Schumer’s size 6 to 8 frame?
