Ashley Graham Under Attack for Losing Weight

The story from Daily Mail:

As a plus-size model, Ashley Graham is no stranger to body shamers.

But in a strange twist, the 28-year-old was recently forced into defending herself for appearing to have lost weight in a number of recent images.

‘How can she say “I represent the plus size woman” when she lost half her weight?’ raged one follower. ‘She is a phony, she used to represent the curvy look now she’s getting just like the ones she fought so hard against in the first place.’

Another said: ‘You no longer represent truly curvy girls. I guess you are giving into the pressures of celebritydom. That’s disappointing.’

Others even declared they felt ‘betrayed’ and were no longer fans, saying: ‘It seems as though every time a plus size girl starts making a name for herself so goes and gets skinny. It’s just discouraging.’

Ashley’s response:

People come on my page and body shame me because I’m too big, because I’m too small, because I’m not good enough for their standards. But at the end of the day I’m good enough for me. Angles will make anyone look bigger or smaller and I just happen to know mine.’

On dieting:

‘I stick to fish and turkey. I think dieting is so important to weight loss, whereas, I didn’t really ever think that before. I thought, “Oh, I can work out, I can just eat whatever I want.”‘

On her cheat days during the Atkins diet plan:

‘I started going to Disneyland and taking my kids and eating Churros and all that really crappy stuff that I love, but then you feel so sh**** after you eat it, when you’ve been doing so good.’

… says Kim.

Emily Ratajkowski: “At 14 I looked exactly the same as I do now”

On becoming a model:

“Fourteen, but I looked exactly the same as I do now. They didn’t know what to do—I looked like a woman. I genuinely hit puberty before everyone. So I really was more sexual than my classmates. My teachers, my boyfriends, my parents’ friends didn’t understand how complex it all was. Because of third-wave feminism, I understood that there are all these f–ked-up ideals of beauty put on young women; that there was something to be scared about in the entertainment world. But yet the people I knew in my everyday life, they [didn’t realize] their faux pas, their missteps, and since they knew me it was that much harder because the comments felt personal.”

On society’s contempt when women take ownership of their sexuality & bodies:

“Kim said that to me. You know, when Lena Dunham takes her clothes off, she gets flack, but it’s also considered brave; when Justin Bieber takes his shirt off, he’s a grown-up. But when a woman who is sexual takes off her top, it plays into something. But there is a distinction in the reaction between, for example, Kim taking off her shirt and Lena. It’s not fair to either of them.”

… says Emily.
