Beth Ditto: male homosexual fashion designers to blame for size zero trend
Beth Ditto is a short, obese lesbian. Whereas some would quickly point out her obesity as the reason why she is displeased with skinny fashion models and suggest that she is envious of tall and slender women, at least she cannot be called “homophobic.”
Here is the report:
The Gossip singer Beth Ditto says gay men in the fashion industry are to blame for the worrying size zero trend.
Plus-sized Beth, who has posed naked for this month's cover of NME magazine, slammed homosexual designers for putting unrealistic pressure on women to be skinny.
Beth told the music publication, "If there's anyone to blame for size zero, it's not women. Blame gay men who work in the fashion industry and want these women as dolls.
"Men don't know what it feels like to be a woman and be expected to look a particular way. The Beckhams are part of the machine, Paris Hilton is part of the machine.
"There's that thing Paris Hilton said about Lindsay Lohan, 'You're poor, ugly and fat.' It's always women who are victims."
The openly lesbian singer - who is 5-feet tall and weighs around 15 stones (210 pounds) - insists her supermodel pal Kate Moss understands what it's like for women to be persecuted for being large, and is not to blame for the alarming skinny trend.
She said, "I spent one night talking to Kate Moss and she said the most amazing things about bodies. I didn't think I was going to like her, but she said, 'Do you know what I hate, Beth? When people tell my big girlfriends, 'You have a beautiful face.' That's a really radical concept."
The 'Standing in the Way of Control' singer was named the coolest person in rock by NME last year, and has posed in her underwear for Vogue magazine.
Comment: Beth Ditto is, of course, spot-on regarding blaming gay fashion designers for the typical skinniness of high-fashion models, but she didn’t get the underlying reason right. The homosexuals are not trying to make their models look like dolls, but like boys in their early adolescence.
