No Beauty Contest

trump-miss-con

“… This cover is fat shaming not only to Tr-mp but also fat women in general. The artist claims it’s meant to demonstrate how Tr-mp’s misogyny ‘might just be his Achilles’ heel,’ but unfortunately the image trucks in the exact same misogyny it wants to critique. Because it makes the subject’s size the most obvious source of his status, it does not challenge the beauty standards it’s referencing at all.”

Cribbed from a post I wrote on Facebook a few months ago; I didn’t want to lose the idea. Thoughts also inspired and affirmed by this Guardian piece on the naked Trump statues.
