Fat people are ugly and will never be attractive. I understand the brand's decision not wanting to be associated with ugly people. This is about fashion. Being fat is an insult to the people around you!

You must be fat and ugly your damn self because nobody would've taken the time to say something so thoughtless unless they were a low self esteem having fatty themselves....you are a fucking moron, get a clue get a new pair of eyes, get a fucking life you ignorant jackass!

Dear Kimberly. It is a scientific fact that sexual attractivity of a woman is being defined by certain attributes. These attributes are being recognized as beauty standards, just look at any magazine, hollywood actress or all these "sexiest women alive". None of them is fat. So it has nothing to do with my education, but a lot with the role of human sexuality in evolution. BTW: Where I come from there's plenty of attractive women, and women are just as respected as they are in the US, we have sex education, free choice and health insurance for everyone. Where I come from saunas are mixed and people in the sauna are not wearing track suits, but are naked. On the other hand we have some restrictions on guns and people think of creationists as ignorant taliban idiots.
So your wild guess about stoning women being one of my passtimes is wrong. Interesting: In Saudi Arabia - where stoning is popular - fat women are considered attractive. I think we agree to disagree for the time being.

Sorry Kimberley, I am not fat, I am slim and tall. And I mean every word I said. No man wants a whale in bed. I just think the fatties should eat a bit healthier. Why do you think Americans are the fattest people on our planet? I am of course not American and I feel pretty much offended seeing all these extremely fat people. And they are fat because they eat the wrong stuff, and lots of it. A sign of low self control. It is not normal to be fat. And a fat woman is not what a normal man would call sexually attractice. I think fat people are disgusting and I don't care if you keep on repeating "fat is attractive!"

Dear Tom the foreigner,
You are so completely lost, that all I can do is feel incredibly sorry for you. Because it's not your fault really for feeling this way, you were just raised to believe that there is a certain kind of beauty in the world. And you just ran with it. Now I'm not sure exactly what part of the world you're from but I'm pretty sure it's in a part of the world where woman are very rarely seen And almost never heard....unless they are willing to risk getting stoned to death! Because only someone with your way of thinking could possibly come from such a restricting place. I truly feel sorry for you because you will always go through life with blinders on never allowing yourself to get to know someone who may be a bit different ie larger than you....take care though!

You really make me laugh. Of course there is a person inside a fat body too, maybe even the loveliest person on earth. But the looks are the first filter, I have to admit that I don't know any fat women. Just not interested. Dear Kimberly, people don't "happen to be large". People do this to themselves (ok, may 3% of the fat people have a desease that made them fat) and I feel somehow pity for them, because there are a lot of activities they can't do anymore, they do not like themselves the way they are, the seats on airplanes are too small, they are not being loved as much as normal people. Being fat is a social stigma. And of course there life expectancy is significantly lower. Nobody wants to be fat! If you have now fat women claiming they were attractive, it just looks to me like a recation based on complete resignation or denial of facts. 95% of fat people could be normal people if they had more discipline and would eat healthier.

First off foreigner, learn how to spell my name correctly alright and second, you must've been waiting for me to come back and give you my opinion so here it is dollface...first off, you are correct when you say that we Americans have a weight problem because well hell, that's pretty obvious to just about the entire world...but you are dead wrong when it comes to slamming a woman who happens to be large just because you yourself are too damn lazy to get to know the person beneath the extra set of flesh....and you'd have to be a pretty myopic ignorant man to categorize a group of woman simply on the basis of their size....my theory on (You) is perhaps you just have a small penis like your thin, weak and fragile frame and therefore, YOU CAN'T HANG! and that, dear foreigner is the real reason why you have,such a visceral reaction towards bigger woman....you secretly find them attractive but your psyche as we'll as alot of society's are fucked up and brainwashed into believing that there's but one type of beauty....Not So foreigner...Not So.

I'm sorry but I have to say something. First off, Kimberley, learn how to listen. Tom purely trumps you in the intellectual department, although he wouldn't if you would learn to open your ears instead of just focusing on snappy comebacks, which you seem to think make you look intelligent or entertaining--they don't. If you knew anything about world culture at all, or listened to Tom, you would understand that women in the muslim culture are considered beautiful when they are on the larger side and clearly, not stoned to death. (Is that your only line? It completely has no place in the debate and makes you look like The Daily report is your main source of news. Read.) Second of all, I may be American but I have lived in Europe for many years and am married to a Northern European. Although I am in the healthcare field and appreciate many aspects of our U.S. healthcare, there are some things where we are clearly wrong. Fat people should be ordered to lose weight. Pure and simple. It is unhealthy and the consequences of which are a monetary drain on our society. It should not be sugarcoated or treaded lightly upon--the message should be direct and simple. If you are fat, you are unhealthy and you should lose weight. In Europe a doctor can actually prescribe weight loss for a fat patient when they come in complaining about all these diseases which aren't even real (rather side effects of the extreme weight they have, which is literally breaking down their bodies). In the U.S., a doctor could be sued for expelling such a truth, which is outright ridiculous. Fat people should not be mollycoddled. They should be supported mentally and physically in their weightless goals, but not told that they are fine or that nobody should be allowed to call them fat. They should not get a prescription for back pain because the cause of the pain is their over large size. They should be told to use that pain as a inspiration to lose weight. Pain the body's way of saying something is wrong--do something! Instead of putting all your energy into criticizing A&F, go get on a treadmill. Do something better than just sitting around complaining that people shouldn't be able to state facts. If you are fat--you are fat. All this "I'm fat and proud" stuff is ridiculous. It is a life-threatening, purely preventable disease. Do you see people saying I have cancer and am proud? No because they are too busy trying to fight it. Go fight your fatness instead of complaining that the world should not be calling you fat.

Wait, you think a woman thats a little over 150 lbs is fat? lol ok, i feel really sorry for you than; you must only prefer anorexic bitches.

As oppose to someone like you who have zero options except for maybe the occasional blow up doll or HIV positive prostitute whose number you probably got from your local bars bathroom stall! You have got to be a gigantic Idiot if you actually believe that there's only one kind of beauty in the world....

Even better than banning A&F - have a curvy girl sit-in.

The A&F comments are pretty much like the horrible part of High School that we're all told people eventually grow out of when they learn what's really important in life. The guy is an ignorant child. And I don't want to wear any clothes from someone who talks about other people like that and thinks that way about people because of their weight. I'm considered very skinny, but I don't care about A&F clothes after this. I don't want to be caught dead in clothes from them. Such a childish attitude and way to be. You want the few kids that think they're too cool for school to shop there before they grow up and realize what matters? Fine, I hope you get those few kids. But hopefully everybody with a conscience and any ability at all to feel empathy for others avoids your stores. How could you actually say that? Are you a Sociopath that just doesn't care? Do you torture little animals too?

This is all towards the A&F CEO, not towards Jess. I'd rather see their clothes being used as toilet paper than seeing anybody wearing them at all, but Jess has her own way of dealing with the situation and good for her.

Avatar

Thumbs up to Jes she really went all out to stand up to him and discriminatory remarks. Plus sized people deserve to wear trendy brands, why not design a line of sizes for them to wear? Designers such as Ralph Lauren do so A&F can too. He's an ignorant a$$ and needs to rethink his remarks/thinking.

After 5 children and at age 67...I don't give a crap what people think of my size! I am a "proprotioned" size 20..I have a waist, breast and hips that are hour-glass. Not size 2, 4, 6 or 8 but I can still kick butt of those skiiny little bimbos who think looking like a anorecic model is appealing...poor you! I am probably healthier than most pof you too! :)

I LOVE this!

Yucky. I think any store has a right to cater...to juniors....to mature adults. ..to men...to babies...to size 5-7-9....to large women (try going to Lane Bryant and find a size 2!!!!!)

Avatar
@ Martel+Jawuan+Owens

Lane Bryant was created for women who can't go to Victoria secrets to buy sexy underwear and bras. There are more stores in the mall that sell solely to size 2 and only a select few sell to plus size women

Avatar
@ jessica

You just don't get it do you? It has NOTHING to do wit that, it has to do with his ignorant comments. And in all honesty, even more juniors clothing stores offer plus sizes. If anything he should be more than willing to offer something for everyone but I guess he doesn't mind that his company is going down the toilet because of dwindling sales numbers.
