Our nonsense detector is pretty sensitive, so when we see a model posing on social media, with greasy food like pizza, hamburgers or fries, attempting to humbly brag about eating junk food and someone still being slim, it’s pretty obvious what’s up. And we’ve been there done that with a woman publicly sharing her eating habits and jean size on social media, and how it all bursts into flames.
Claiming to eat a whole pizza, or a five-course brunch may be all fun and games, but it stops getting funny right around the time when you see that the same model who posted a 3 scoop ice cream cone three days ago has now posted all fitness photos with an overload of hashtags like #fitnessmodel or #inshape and my personal favorite advertisement, the detox tea.
The lifestyle that people try to sell on social media is absurd, and it has extremely negative effects on body positivity. There’s something particularly disturbing about the pressure that is put on models to fit into a certain industry standard, and when “average” women see that, it creates this great feeling of inadequacy.
So when I see this photo Charlotte McKinney I think: Cool. Good for her. Let’s all just carry on with our day.
