A couple of weeks ago, Canadian fusspot philosopher Jordan Peterson, who resembles a corpse on a good day, decided to use his vast internet platform (2.7 million Twitter followers) to weigh in on the Fat Model Question, tweeting that the plus-size model on the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue was “[n]ot beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.”
Tastes vary, but I think it’s fair to say that most normal people feel vaguely disgusted to hear the latest reports on Peterson’s inability to rouse his penis from a flaccid state.
Deeply offended by people laughing at his ridiculous tweet, Dr. Petersor left Twitter in a huff, then un-left it in a minute and a huff.
And you’ll no doubt be thrilled to learn that he refuses to back down on the Fat Model Question. In a recent appearance on his daughter’s podcast he reaffirmed that he was still unable to get a boner looking at fat chicks. And he explained why putting a plus-sized model on the cover of Sports Illustrated is a very mean thing to do, not just to him but to the poor model herself, who is evidently unaware that some people like Dr. Peterson can’t get a boner over her, and who would cry herself to sleep if she knew.
Being the petulant baby that he is, Dr. Peterson ended his, er, argument with a “fuck you” to his critics.
I have prepared not one but two rebuttals to his argument, in the form of the music videos below.
If Dr. Peterson wants to fight the Fat Model Apocalypse more directly, he could start by posting “how do you open” queries for his fans, featuring women more his type, like his daughter. And perhaps this young woman beautiful woman.
