So everyone is praising him for doing what he loves while bigger but call Tess Holiday an unhealthy whale? Love the sexist double standard. Go him, Tess, and all other ‘fat’ people doing what they love and not caring what others think.
My favorite baseball player calls me grandma shirt
My guess is because he is an athlete and at some point, he will have to lose the weight, there is no team that will ever allow him to stay that size, not saying that he will have to go down to size like the other guys, but he will eventually have to do something. And also sometimes with much bigger athletes, it could all be muscle.

My favorite baseball player calls me grandma. Its mainly because people think women can’t be fat and confident. Part of it is asshats but its also society ingraining it into children’s minds indirectly so subconsciously people feel that they need to hold women to ridiculous beauty standards and men get cut more slack. I don’t mean to sound like some bitchy feminist or something but that’s how and why it is and we need to unlearn those stupid beauty ideals. As an athlete? Yeah, it pays to be fit. Cc Sabathia does better when he is fit and not overweight. If during a play the pitcher has to run to first or home for whatever reason, he’d be better off if he wasn’t overweight. If he happens to also bat, then running the bases with 300lbs won’t help him. And I’m not saying he shouldn’t be happy. You should always feel happy about yourself regardless of what others might say. However, it’s highly unlikely that he’s a better athlete at 300lbs than if he got to a healthier weight. And there’s a difference between a muscular athlete that’s 300lbs and one that’s just overweight. Some players are also in better position to be overweight. Look at David Ortiz. He has always been an amazing hitter but needed a pinch runner when he got on based. He became a better athlete when he lost the weight. All I’m saying.
