Ashley Graham was honored with the “Model Of The Year” award on Thursday night at the annual Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards, cementing an unhealthy lifestyle as a style of choice for women.
Graham, who has recently taken pop culture by storm, seemingly won the award because she is plus size.
From breaking news and entertainment to sports and politics, get the full story with all the live commentary.
The Daily Mail reports Graham has to tell herself “I am bold, I am brilliant, I am beautiful I can have and do whatever I want” every day.
Using positive reinforcement to pretend eating too much and doing too little is healthy doesn’t actually work, as one can see by looking at the bulky behemoth.
One would imagine Graham, who was the first plus-size model to commit visual terrorism by appearing on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2016, would encourage other women to live a healthy life and do some exercise that doesn’t include standing in line for a McDouble.
Instead, Graham and her corpulent counterparts are pretending to be the ‘normal’ and continue to be rammed down America’s throats more often than James Toback can offer acting positions.
Happy birthday to the beautiful and inspiring, @TheAshleyGraham. 30 has never looked so good! ? Shop the Suit: https://t.co/XWIADCZ43m
Graham, who is 5ft 9″ and 170lbs, has a BMI of 25.1. This means she is overweight according to the CDC.
However, Graham doesn’t see a problem with this, in fact, she believes it is “awful” that overweight women are placed into the plus-size category, even though being ‘curvy’ is the “average size.” She isn’t wrong.
According to the CDC, 70.7% of adults over the age of 20 were overweight in 2014.
The CDC also explains that being overweight increases the risk of a number of health conditions, including:
- Coronary heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon)
- High blood pressure
- Lipid disorders (for example, high total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides)
- Liver and Gallbladder disease
- Sleep apnea and respiratory problems
- Osteoarthritis (a degeneration of cartilage and its underlying bone within a joint)
- Gynecological problems (abnormal periods, infertility)
Graham winning a modeling award for being overweight is not helping the growing issue of obesity in the country, nor is it appealing to watch, however, it might not be a bad thing.
The Democrats will certainly lose a lot of votes once obesity catches up with the feminists.
