For 28 long years, I have relegated myself to the sidelines any time that politics are brought up. Historically I've dodged debate with: "I would prefer not to comment or provide an opinion on something that I have not had the time to properly research."

At the end of January, 29-year-old Tess Holliday made headlines when she was signed to MiLK modeling agency in the U.K. Doesn't seem like that much of a story until you find out that Tess is a size 20, which is far higher than what the American fashion industry normally constitutes as plus sized (sizes 6-14).
