Okay.Â So a slap in the face for plus size women!Â Over at Sizenet, (thanks Bob Tovey!)Â I came across this horrendously offensive story developing in the UK!
â€œThe dating website BeautifulPeople.com has just axed 5000 members because they are overweight.
Those wanting to join the site have to be voted in by the existing membership.Â If you don’t meet the criteria (you have to be beautiful – however that is defined) you don’t get in.Â Members have been singled out after they posted pictures of themselves showing they had put on weight.Â The membership voted out the 5000 with the US, UK and Canadian members on top of this list.â€
You heard me right!Â Shaking my head, I was only surprised and elated to hear that PLUS Model Magazineâ€™s Creative Editor, Mia Amber will be on CNN tonight, on The Situation Room, to address this issue!
This year, I am declaring it, The Year of the Beautiful Plus Size Woman!
