Which One Is Acceptable?

“I saw an article recently that was celebrating the ‘larger’ female form. I find it so hard when I was classed as a size zero model where I was sneered at, thought of as disgusting, underweight, and that I shouldn’t be allowed to work until I’d put on weight.
 
It was accepted that I wasn’t normal in the media but I’m sure if these overweight models were talked to, and treated the way I was, all hell would break loose.
 We are meant to be living in a more accepting, more understanding world, and yet we are overlooking the fact that we are starting to accept people being overweight.
 I’m shocked that people fail to recognise that you don’t have to be on the skinny end of the spectrum to have an eating disorder.”
