Lately I’ve seen a rise in plus size models, which is great although they all seem to be female? I’m not sure if society still has a view that men are supposed to be fit and toned with wash board abs, but that just isn’t the case. I’m not skinny, I don’t have abs and I am forever trying to lose weight. It can be a tough uphill struggle, especially with the media throwing out male underwear models and the perfect male image.
So I came up with fashion Friday. I’m always looking for new clothes, shoes that fit or something different that supermarkets just don’t stock. So why not chat about it? I’ve given it some thought and feel like it’s something close to my heart and something that I want to talk about. It would be great if you could come along with me. I thought about creating a whole new website in dedication to it although for the time being I’m just going to stick it on Lousnews. Who knows, if people love it so much I might host it somewhere else!
I’d love for suggestions about what to write about. I’m sure that there are thousands of people out there in the same situation who want to know more and feel like society have given up on them because they aren’t fitting into a medium, what shops actually have tall t-shirts and what ice cream best suits the colour of my jeans? I made the last part up but I do love ice cream! On the topic of food check out this pizza picture when I had a pizza event, I don’t look too bad right?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to start venturing out and doing model shoots anytime soon! I don’t think my love handles or spiked up hair qualify for the photos the media want! Maybe that’s part of the problem? Are we expecting to see a set photo when we open a magazine?
So that’s enough for me this Friday! I hope you come along on this journey with me and find what I’m chatting about interesting. If not and you do have suggestions drop me an email, maybe leave a polite little email. The time being though I’d just like to be a male plus size model, maybe advocate would be a better word? Hopefully helping other people in the same situation along the way!
