The term “plus-sized” is thrown around a lot lately, and the way I perceive the word in regards to females are women who wear a size 12 or higher. There are also individuals who spew hate or run away whenever a woman of that description is brought to the forefront. For those individuals, I revoke your man card, for there are a metric ton (no pun intended) of downright gorgeous plus-sized women in the world, and most of them are just roaming around, outside of Hollywood.
