For many people the subject around “Fat”always been a touchy topic. Plus-sized people mostly women are often treated like a disease that must be cured, by society. It’s not common that heavy women see representation of themselves in media, that representation is so skewed when it is.
There are still so many women who just don’t see themselves represented.
Last week, Gillette posted a shot of style blogger Anna O’Brien on their Twitter page, with the image showing her frolicking in the ocean in a green two-piece.
Some people praised Gillette for the positive message, but tons of keyboard warriors commented nasty, mean-spirited things about O’Brien, such as “imagine how many razors she has to go through” and an unbelievable amount of health concern trolls crawled out of the woodwork to shame the model.
The Instagram star spoke to Good Morning America in response and noted how joyful she looked in the photo. “For a lot of people, all they can see is fat. They don’t see the joy. They don’t see the happiness,” O’Brien said.
Venus is committed to representing beautiful women of all shapes, sizes, and skin types because ALL types of beautiful skin deserve to be shown. We love Anna because she lives out loud and loves her skin no matter how the “rules” say she should display it 💙
