Cosmopolitan is featuring multiple “plus-size,” “fat” women in a magazine issue that commends every body size as “healthy.”
The February 2021 edition of Cosmopolitan features women of various body sizes with superimposed text reading “This is healthy! 11 women on why wellness doesn’t have to be one-size-fits-all.”
Callie Thorpe, a “plus size” blogger and model is among the featured women, and described to Cosmopolitan her involvement with the “body neutrality movement, which focused on what your body can do rather than how it looks.”
“Plus-size people often feel like they can’t be part of the wellness space,” Thorpe told Cosmopolitan. “We are trolled for being fat, then can feel excluded from exercise because our bodies don’t fit the narrative.” Thorpe has previously described doctor’s recommendations for her to lose weight, and remarks made by strangers about developing diabetes.

Jessamyn Stanley, a yoga teacher who self-describes as a “healthy fat person” and “fat femme,” is also featured. Stanley has a significant following on Instagram and runs fitness classes....

The tense “future perfect” should be banned.
Well this should expand their potential readership.
The final act of despotism is to make people believe what they do not naturally believe.
“I’ve got fudge! Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses, we’re talkin’ Haagen-Dazs, baby, waddaya say?”
It's even worse - you are a hideous bigot because you refuse to date transwomen. :)
Bill Whittle was talking about this type of cancel culture today, and he points out that it doesn't work at all if you don't care. Young men crave masculine role models and reject "woke" Hollywood products across the board - there is great opportunity for conservatives to appeal to this group, he points out, by trashing and ridiculing wokeness everywhere it rears its head.
Cosmo deserves to be laughed off the newsstand for these covers.
2021 is shaping up to be a real sh** show.
