Bialik is a hyperconscious woman who tackles feminist issues ranging from social injustices to the problems with vernacular surrounding women -- and everything in between. Which is why I found her rant about too many plus-size women and, I am assuming, women in general getting naked in the name of empowerment to be disappointing in the least and highly problematic at best. To be fair, Bialik begins her four-minute Facebook video addressing the benefits of plus-size visbility -- she notes that women seeing women "who actually exist" has immeasurably helped them accept their bodies in ways they never imagined. She also mentions that when plus-size women portray themselves as desirable and beautiful, it challenges society's definition of beauty to be more inclusive. All of which are inarguably good things.
