FAT GIRLS (Are These Girls Fat?)
Project Harpoon Disgustingly Photoshops Women To Look Thinner. Women Respond Brilliantly…
Take this, Project Harpoon...
And in today’s most infuriating, sexist news, a new social media group has been set up dedicating time and energy to making women look thinner with Photoshop.
Project Harpoon (seriously, that’s the name) claims to ‘help misguided women’ by editing their images to make them look alarmingly thin, with awful captions and accompanying hashtags like #SkinnyAcceptance and #thINNERBEAUTY.
The creators target supposedly ‘plus-sized women’ including celebrities Melissa McCarthy, Meghan Trainor and Rebel Wilson, as well as lingerie catalogue models and feminist activists.
The captions are as shocking as the pictures themselves, with disgusting before and after comparisons like ‘from freight train to getting gain’ and ‘Now this is a true looker in disguise. From double wide to a possible bride, being thin could do wonders.’ Isn’t the internet an awful place sometimes?
What’s even sadder is that the anonymous (read, cowardly and deluded) person who has created the account seems to think they are actually a feminist and are promoting a healthy body image for women around the world.
Actress Melissa McCarthy was targeted by the group
That’s despite such joyous captions as;‘If you’re a feminist, you should at least be in shape so you can attend the protests, not get stuck in the parking garage.’ Seriously.
‘If I offend 1000 people but inspire 1 to lose weight and live a longer happier life then ya that’s fine by me,’ the creator wrote in response to thesquillionsof comments from Instagram users, calling out their bullying behaviour.
