I heard the other day that Tyra was launching a top model-esque search for plus size teens. I was intriqued so I decided to get more details. It turns out that to be involved you have to be between the ages of 13-19 and size 12-20. I’m not gonna lie, this makes my heart rate increase. Although I FULLY advocate women loving their bodies at different sizes, I also FULLY advocate a healthy woman. I just do not think this is sending out the right message to young girls, who need to embrace a healthier lifestyle (I’m sorry but potentially being 13 and size 20 is NOT ok.)
What are your thoughts?
Do you think it’s ok for Tyra to put young girls on display in an industry that doesn’t support overweight women??
Do you think she’s actually supporting young women or is this a marketing ploy thats using young girls??
