A professor at Washington State University recently pioneered a fat fashion pedagogy intervention in her classes to fight structural inequality in swimsuit design.
Debbie Christel, who teaches at Washington State University, wrote about her new teaching method in the new issue of the Fat Studies journal, explaining that she made students do a swimsuit design project based on fat fashion pedagogy.

No fatty pics please.
People like this nitwit feminist can tell us men all they want that fat is attractive, but...all other things being equal, it simply is not, no way, no how.
And most men are largely visual. It is the way we are wired.
Now, things are sometimes not equal, in that a personal relationship is not factored into physical appearance (to me, they are a separate thing) and while my girlfriend or spouse may not be as physically attractive as Romy Schneider, she may be far more attractive to me as a person which will outweigh physical factors.
After all, physical beauty is rarely or never sustained in people, as we all turn to dust eventually. Anyone who is completely hung up on that is going to find out the hard way the folly of it.
I'M A VICTIM TOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Making a purely objective observation, she's fat.
Phisical conditions such as diabetes aside, most obesity is caused by overeating and reduced activity. Most can be eliminated, and should be. Instead fat will become a victim group and fat-shaming will be akin to being Hitler. Stop feeding kids garbage and allowing them to plop in front of a display screen all day.
From a non-ideological, purely business point of view, I think this assignment makes sense. Learning to design and market products to specific demographic groups is an important skill. For the most part, I find the ideological “insights” fairly useless in a business-oriented class, although I do think it can’t hurt to develop a positive opinion and approach to whatever clientele that is being targeted.
but she shaves her armpits...
Each and every day, some non-academic department of failures in some silly “university” compete for the honor of being the most stupid “professor” in the world.
Pity that none had tried to get a real degree.
Can one imagine that “prof” even getting into a pre-1950s university?
Oh, wait. You meant "consensual."
And you can't spell consensual without sensual.
Yet another venue for the Left to demand that all choices be respected equally, regardless of consequences (requiring undesirable consequences be celebrated, and desirable consequences be condemned, until all are accepted equally).
No math, science or English?
Like a windtunnel.
Fat Studies? Lol, you cant make this stuff up!
