Despite conspiracy theories, underminers, and the fact that some of us thought Anya was actually the better model, we're damned proud of Whitney Thompson and the fact that a plus-size girl finally took the title on ANTM. (Of course, the show is not even close to a true representation of the real modeling industry.) There was something really telling in Paulina's commentary during judging when she said, "Whitney is the one that a man would want in his bedroom, but Anya is the one that you would buy the dress from." The fashion industry is fucked up. Or maybe we're all fucked up. Or maybe we need to stop letting curve-hating gay men tell us how we should look!
