Consider Hollywood's current It Girl, Keira Knightley. Knightley has a body mass that places her in the second percentile of the population. If her weight were to deviate as radically in the other direction - in other words if she were in the 98th percentile of body mass - she would weigh approximately 300 pounds.PS: Definitely skip the comments. Campos has a set of trolls that follow him around.
Yet Knightley is presented by our media-industrial complex as a completely natural object of male desire, while men attracted to 300-pound women are considered to be in the grip of a bizarre fetish. (Meanwhile the archetypal male sex symbol Brad Pitt has a BMI of 27, which also happens to be the average BMI of middle-aged American men).
