Writer Highlights Fault In Society As Skinny And Fat Women In Exact Same Shorts Are Treated Completely Differently

by Ariana

Writer and activist Rayne Fisher-Quann recently stumbled across a tweet with a photo we've all probably seen 100 times. It features an overweight couple, outdoors, in denim shorts, white t-shirts tucked in and the image cropped so we cannot see their faces.

The tweet Fisher-Quann originally found mocked the people's weight and fashion choices with over 100,000 likes! Fisher-Quann lamented that she couldn't believe how harsh people were being and that if a popular model like Bella or Gigi Hadid wore this exact outfit, people would praise it and call it '80s inspired inspo'.

So why are we like this? As a society, why do we praise the outfit on someone skinny, but recoil when they same thing is worn by someone we deem 'fat'?

Check out Fisher-Quann's chain on tweets on the topic below.

Fisher-Quann began:

Fisher-Quann was correct. Other Twitter users shared a photo of one of the Hadid sisters in the exact same outfit, explaining it had garnered A LOT of positive attention.

The photo, taken Gigi Hadid in New York City, appeared on popular fashion-blog, 'Stylecaster' and was titled, "Did Gigi Hadid Just Make Bermuda Shorts … Happen?"

Fisher-Quann was correct. Other Twitter users shared a photo of one of the Hadid sisters in the exact same outfit, explaining it had garnered A LOT of positive attention.

Other Twitter users highlighted the current internet obsession with the late Princess Diana's '80s/'90s casual street style.

Fisher-Quann went on the talk about the double standard in the aesthetics of class.

Other twitter users weighed in, too.

Some with body-positive comments

Others with personal experiences.

Fisher-Quann went on to even ask people not to bully the original tweeter as hate doesn't help solve these deep-rooted societal issues.
