Kanye Voice: Victoria Secret Doesn’t Care About Fat People

Victoria Secrets doesn't care about fat people, and honestly neither does the rest of America but here's a list of companies beating the stigma.

Another year, another show and still no change. Every year Victoria Secrets kicks off their holiday season with an extravagant angels fashion show and a flurry of holiday sales. The show features some of the most stunning women in the most gorgeous lingerie you have ever seen. Which ultimately leads you to the closest mall searching for your own sexy lacy bits.

However if you're like me you get pushed further and further away from them because nothing fits. Which sucks, and I feel like crap and I hold on to hope because I'm working on and Victoria Secrets is cheering me on. I see the motivation everywhere, the sexy angels on TV, on their website and the videos at the store. Reminding me what a true angel looks like, right.

Victoria Secrets View of Women

Wrong! Oh so wrong. For years Victoria Secrets has been criticized for featuring these Amazonian ladies in their shows and perpetuating unrealistic beauty standards. Which seems to be by design, Ed Razek, one of VS's executives stated plus-sized and trans women don't belong in his annual show.

Apparently the brand doesn't see the value in having their products represented by plus-sized and trans-women. After receiving some harsh criticism, Razek promptly apologized for what he said about trans-women. Plus-sized women on the other and… Crickets.

Fat Lives Don't Matter

For years I've been falling into that trap. Because honestly for years there's been a lack of options for people like me. Popular brands get away with punishing large people because it's the great big social faux pas. It feels like I need to crawl in a hole, have a big transformation and then I'll finally get be allowed to exist on the other side.

Then I realized, why am I buying into this image of sexy? Where I'm not behind represent when I'm spending my own plus-sized dollars. If a company is willingly putting it out there that they don't value me, why give them my money?

According to Ed the Runway show is a "fantasy" and fantasies don't include real women. Which is interesting because they're selling women's products. So if they're entire message is, yes it's for women, but only the ones we think are hot. Thanks! I hear you loud and clear and you know what so does the economy.

A Real Women Army

While Victoria Secrets has been sticking to their guns and effectively excluding a significant portion of their target demographic. A number of companies, (mainly run by women…) have been taking a different approach. Mainly stating they make products for all women. So far, it seems to have paid of. This is mainly due the the rise of social media and the fact that consumers now have more access to their brands.

From a business perspective Victoria Secrets, although they have mass appeal, chose to maintain their exclusivity and now competitors are capitalizing on it. Brands who believe that sexy's not just a fantasy. But something available for all women who want to partake, or those who just want to buy a bra. Here's a list of brands that offer inclusive sizing and happily serve the population VS willingly ignores.

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parent's house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your 7th-grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

17 Signs You're In A Serious Relationship With A History Major

There's few to come by, but history majors are the mysterious ones for colleges in Liberal Arts and Sciences. They're also going to be your favorite person in the world.


The vast amount of majors at college and university include engineering, business, tech, even nursing. For some, like myself, history majors are few.

I chose to be one because I've always had a huge interest in history, so why not try and make a career out of it? You may be thinking, "All they do is study dates and figures, nothing else," but in reality, we're understanding the past, living in the present, and comprehending the future. We're also probably the most considerate of your emotions and feelings, so give us a chance, folks.

Here are 17 reasons why it will be benefitting to you to date a history major.

1. When you ask what the date is and they tell you...before giving us a "this day in history" fact

If you ask what the date is, and it's June 6th, be careful of being warped into a whole D-Day fact from your S.O. It's an important day, but obviously you didn't ask for a history lesson haha!

2. "Come over"; "Can't, writing a paper about the Renaissance"

It's pretty self-explanatory.

3. Seeing the countless biographical books and DVDs in their room


If they have "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu, they're a keeper. Wife/husband them immediately.

4. Reading dozens of emails from History.com...

5...then reading "this day in history" instead of their texts


6. When you're walking and they spot a historical place (instead of somewhere to eat)

"Oh look, there's a nice bistro over there." "Yeah, hold on, babe, look at that Civil War statue of Stonewall Jackson."

7. When you see them quoting historical people for their Instagram captions

8. Posting historical photos on their Instagram (instead of posting one of you two at a formal)


You try to laugh, but you really don't get this meme about Teddy Roosevelt

10. They have a calendar of either WWII or Vietnam in their room

I have one featuring the Civil War, so just trust me on this one.

11. "Good thing I have papers and not tests," they say as you cram six months of Algebra in your brain for a final


12. "Dropping" them off at class and there's only six other students in the classroom

It's like high school detention in there with that class size!

13. When they're excited to see something at the Smithsonian



14. Watching historical documentaries on Netflix instead of an actual movie

"Babe, Infinity War." "Yeah, that's great, but like check out this documentary on the Battle of Britain."

15. Probably have Dean Martin, Motown, or classical music on their playlist


16. Having one final (but turns out to be a take home paper)

Those lucky bastards.

17. Writing their thesis at the bar on your anniversary...and you're not even mad because you know they love what they study


If that's not true love, I don't know what is.

So there you have it, folks, some signs on your S.O. who is a history major! Happy loving!
