Self Magazine debuted its first digital cover this week, which showed plus-sized model Tess Holliday and told readers that her health is none of your business.
The health and wellness magazine posted the cover to its Instagram account and included a portion of Editor-in-Chief Carolyn Kylstras editors letter, which explains why the publication decided to give Holliday a platform.
Holliday identifies as a fat woman; we chose to give her a platform because she has insightful things to say about thriving in a world that devalues bodies of size, the letter said. We also chose to feature her because size representation is necessary, especially for a national health media brand that can help guide the conversation about what it means to be healthy and how to make health accessible.
It went on to add that a persons level of health cant be determined "just by looking at them."
And moreover, you should know that concern trolling using a persons perceived health to justify making them feel bad about themselves isnt just counterproductive, its abusive, it said.
Some commenters on the post applauded the magazines decision, with one user writing, Thanks for showing ALL kinds of beautiful women! and another saying they adore this!

No matter how hard they try, they will never succeed with (Men anyways...) in convincing that fat girls are as pretty as skinny ones.
Sorry, it’s just the way it is, and stop trying so damn hard, because you’re only wasting ink...
This thread is perfectly fine without pictures.
No, that isn’t Plus, that is SUPER SIZED baby!!
This isn’t the 21st century I was promised.
I think there needs to be a separate category from “plus” size.
That is more like “multiply” size or “exponential” size.
I am pretty sure that is a life-size tattoo of Dolly Parton on her upper arm.
There are some men (a very small number) who are attracted to obese women. I think it’s a fetish and an unhealthy one at that.
Is this where I can report abuse?? OMG that picture!!! I’m triggered! I thought that not being fat and not porking out had to do with - health and moderation> gluttony. So wrong I was.
How about a mag that glorifies unemployed meth guys..?
Chix would LOVE that.
Yeah, at first I thought this was some moderately overweight, yet still attractive model . . . but . . . yikes!
When she “flies”, TSA will need to check under each and every layer of back flab. “Hold on, Miss, I’m not done quite yet.
Just let your arms hang down on your sides. That’s it!”
That’s not Plus size! Thats OMG your gobby fat size. She couldn’t even fit through the front door of a Lane Bryant store!
The same people are advocating for universal health and want taxpayers to fund her obesity.
“None of Your Business”
And yet they make it their cover story.
Why do Rodney Dangerfield jokes come to mind?
“She was so fat that when she went swimming she left a ring around the LAKE!”
