Where’s the food?

Considering my recent thoughts on weightlifting/Crossfitting women “eating all the food”, this image is interesting. The model in the picture is plus-sized (for a model). Does the text on the t-shirt have a different meaning when juxtaposed with her body, compared to if it was placed on an athletic woman’s body?

Is eating all the food OK if you’re athletic/a weightlifter/Crossfitter, but not OK if you’re plus sized? Or does it not make a difference?

I’m not sure how I feel about this t-shirt. I’d probably wear it, but I’d feel self-conscious about wearing it around people who didn’t know I lift, if you see what I mean?

What do you think? Does the meaning of the text on this shirt change depending on who’s wearing it? Would you wear it?

    I’d wear that – I like the style, for starters, but also I do find the caption quite funny. I think my husband would find it funny too; one of the things he finds endearing about me (I have no idea why) is my greed (or “how much I enjoy food” if you want to put it non-judgementally). I guess I often wear things that only people in my family would “get” – eg kitsch jumper with a kitten on it, worn quasi-ironically; t-shirt with “I live Sushi” on it, because our cat is called Sushi… so I guess, as a cursory attempt at self-analysis, that’s why I’d feel quite happy wearing this.

      Yep, I’d wear it for similar reasons I think. When George tweeted it I think she was offended at the implication that fat women = can’t stop eating, which I can also see. I think it’s interesting, as if you put that shirt on a slender, fitspo type women the message would be “woo yeah I eat loads and it’s great!”, but the message isn’t the same on a fat woman. And that annoys me!

    The meaning shouldn’t change depending on who wears it but in reality in our society it does have different meaning depending on who wears it. Sad but true. : ( I’d love to see somebody wearing it….funny little slogan.
