It is perfectly acceptable to refer to lean women are chicks, birds or foxes so why not refer to fat women are sows, whales or manatees? Target is on the cutting edge with this.
The Fatosphere is Going Nuts!
He points out that "Manatee Gray" is a color found on many products across a range of categories on the Target website, some of them in women's regular and even petite sizes.
In this case, he says, there were two different teams of buyers
responsible for the "missy" and plus-size product lines, and the teams
didn't coordinate when they inputted the product information for the
site. One team apparently used the color's official name, Manatee Grey, while the
other eyeballed it.
Those of us in the new fat acceptance applaud Target. Target is a very fat friendly store. Many Target stores house fast food restaurants such all McDonalds and Blimpie Subs.
We give Target 4 out of 4 pigs for fat friendliness.
I have a few suggestions for color desciptions.
Pizza Sauce Red
Portly Plum Purple
Black Hole Black
