Is Kate Upton Too Fat? Critics Call Her 'Lardy,' 'Squishy,' 'Piggie' [POLL]
IBT ^ | 3 July 2012 | IBTimesStaffReporter

Posted on 07/05/2012 8:03:41 PM PDT by smokingfrog

Is Kate Upton too fat? Weigh in on the model's size via our online poll.

Modeling's newest "it" girl has gained a massive following due in large part to her sexy curves, but a group of critics are saying she is the massive one, calling her names like "thick" and "lardy," and saying that she looks "like a squishy brick" and "pregnant."

The most vicious critic of Kate Upton, who landed this year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover and is on the cover of this month's GQ, so far has been the website SkinnyGossip.com.

A controversial site in its own right, SkinnyGossip has been linked to promoting anorexia, and it features a terrifying list of "Starving Tip[s] of the Day" aimed at helping girls become as skinny as humanly possible. The horrific starving tips, such as "Learn to LOVE that empty feeling in your stomach. Trust me, you'll feel disgusting when it starts filling up again," and "If you must eat, ONLY eat when people are watching you. All other calories are eaten in vain," are accompanied by photographs of super-thin girls' legs, ostensibly to show what girls should aspire to look like.

And the site is now turning its eyes to Kate Upton, who it calls "well-marbled" in a headline, comparing her to a cow, and lambasting her a "cannibal" for eating a beef hamburger in an advertisement for fast food giant Carl's Jr.:

"I thought cannibalism was illegal?!? If that's not a very different species of cow, Kate could be in legal trouble!"

The article, which does not list an author's name, goes on to lay into Kate Upton..."

She looks damned good to me.

I would buy her a burger and a milk shake any day.

What? That GAY men in the design biz should dictate how much she should weight (because they HATE women) and that she should resemble a 12-year-old boy for their ‘pleasure’?

She looks like a real woman, not one of those skeletons that predominate among models.

Is ‘thick’ the new slang for super hot?

Queers dominating the fashion industry are definitely a problem. I doubt most people know that a size 6 woman is considered “plus size” in the modeling profession.

Really. Natural looking women have no place among anorexic cat-fighters and homo fashionistas.

Nothing wrong with this gal at all--more believeable than the photoshopped (used to say airbrushed!) SI cover.

What's a 'Kate Upton'?

"As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

--H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

Anyone who would call Miss Upton “fat” or any of the other pejoratives mentioned is profoundly mentally ill and needs to seek professional help as soon as possible.

These homos must faint from the vapors when they see a picture of Marilyn Monroe or Jayne Mansfield or Rita Hayworth, much less a Sophia Loren or Raquel Welch. Heck, Marilyn made Kate Upton look anorexic, and she’s only the greatest sex symbol of all time.

Since most clothes are sold on hangers, fashion designers have decided that their models should look just like those hangers.

Oh, baby, how sexy.

I worked in the ‘rag trade’ for many years. It is dominated by homosexuals, narcissists, and those with borderline personality disorder. If you are not ‘perfect’ in their eyes.....you are ‘worthless’. And they are VICIOUS if you’re not. Which fits quite nicely with the eugenics realm.

I ‘woke up’ a few years ago to all of their crap.

Quite funny....since MOST of these @sstards LOVE MONEY and BEAUTIFUL THINGS AND ANTIQUES!) And LOVE ‘the rich’! But promote socialism at every breath. They have this SICK notion that THEY will, somehow, will be ‘spared’ by the ruling government (like a ‘muse’).

Don’t think anorexic models are attractive at all, but Kate is a bit too chunky for that particular bikini.

Sure...if looking like a modern Marilyn Monroe makes a girl “fat.”

She looks like a woman. Just ‘cause the fashion gossips say she is fat does not make it so. They would prefer that women look like boys.

Too squishy? Looks pretty good to me. She could even put on a few lbs and still be fine.

If anything, she looks a bit skinny to me. What is she? A size 2? Well perhaps last year’s size 2 is this year’s size 14 and this is supposed pass for what looks “good”.

Nope, perfect body. Only the faggots that run the modeling industry like that deathly skinny 11-year-old boy look in women. Real men like curves. Many women don’t understand this because they think we like the anorexic model look and lie saying we don’t. The fags can have that look. Give me curves any day.

I'd claim her with an extra 20 pounds distributed in the right places. What is it with women today that they gotta wax their this-sis and that-sis is and have ribcages like xylophones to be considered 'feminine'? These chicks nowadays look like conceited lab experiments. Hell, they're considered 'washed up' before they're 30; if I married one that age, my friends and family would think my midlife crisis was turning my brain to pudding. I, of course, would dissent...............

No, she’s what heterosexual men like, not coifed faggots trying to make anorexic women look like teenage hairless boys.

Worked for a ‘high-end’ boutique as a floor seller and was promoted manager....then buyer after a few years. Was flown to Atlanta and NYC for ‘market’ to buy the lines for the store. We were a clothier for ‘bridge’ career wear, wedding, and ball attire.

Sold Cole Haan, Klein, Pinkerton, McKlintock, Joan Vass, Ghurka Luggage, Max Mara, etc.

This was a few years ago, mind.

a group of critics are saying she is the massive one, calling her names like "thick" and "lardy," and saying that she looks "like a squishy brick" and "pregnant."

This group of critics is looking for something in a woman that doesn't involve being incredibly attractive to a man. Kate Upton is smoking hot. I think her uncle, the incandescent-bulb hating Congressman, is a statist moron - but his niece is a dime.

Yeah, I would have nooooooo problem with another well-distributed 15 or 20 pounds on her. I've always liked girls with a little baby fat. Just enough to give her that healthy look. Those anorexic sunk-cheek models just don't look right.
