Morbidly Obese Woman Gets Modeling Contracts After Whining about Cyberbullying
A morbidly obese woman who complained about being cyberbullied by internet trolls has received modeling contracts as a result of her incessant whining.
24-year-old British woman Abyie Polden, who lives in Telford, Shropshire, claims that she suffers from lipoedema, a condition that causes her to store excessive fat. She weighs in excess of 252 pounds, and has spent most of her life hiding her massive frame.
Due to the insane and destructive body positivity movement, Polden jettisoned her shame and modesty in what she calls an “epiphany.” She started showing off her lumpy, overweight physique in the summer of 2018. She posted a quasi-nude picture on Instagram holding a sign saying “My body, my rules.”
Social media users rushed to express their disgust with her lewd photographs. Trolls told her that she “shouldn’t be able to reproduce” and would crush her boyfriend during love-making. After she whined about being mistreated, she was brought on as a plus-size model for brands such as Pink Clove and Unique 21.
Polden feels empowered to promote her heinously unhealthy lifestyle because of the positive reinforcement she has received from society.
“I spent years hiding who I really was from the world because of what other people had told me about what qualifies as beautiful,” Polden said.
“One day I woke up and those falsehoods were gone. So, of course, I did what anyone else would have done and uploaded a nude photo to Instagram,” she added.
She also whined about the bullying she received before she decided to upload her semi-nude picture to Instagram.
“One name that always stood out was ‘Flabby Abby’ – it particularly hurt,” she told the Daily Mail.
She added: “Boys would pretend to ask me out on a date, and if I’d accept, they’d turn around and say, ‘Only joking – you’re too fat.'”
Polden hopes that her story will empower others to give up on bettering themselves, and accept their slovenly bodies no matter how dangerous their lifestyle may be to their personal health.
“It’s so great being a part of the shift in how woman and their bodies are perceived – especially by big brands,” Polden said.
“I’m so glad that I decided to embrace my figure and to show other girls out there that they can be beautiful, and in a social media age they’re still accepted,” she added.
Fitness advocate and television personality Julian Michaels has warned of the dangerousness of the body positivity movement, and the negative impact it has on overweight individuals.
“I think we’re politically correct to the point of endangering people. Yes, we want to be inclusive of everyone [and respect that] everyone comes in all different shapes and size,” Michaels told Women’s Health U.K. last month.
“That nobody should ever be body shamed or fat-shamed or excluded and that everyone is equally deserving and should feel equally valuable. But obesity in itself is not something that should be glamorized. But we’ve become so politically correct that no one wants to say it,” she added.
