But the question is, why is an obese mannequin causing such a stir, yet no one is upset about all the superskinny stick-figure mannequins that currently reside in store windows? Shouldn’t we be upset about those as well?

honestly anyone who even remotely cares about the size of a mannequin should be beaten with the skinny end of a fishing pole until properly shamed
It's not that we should promote the larger sized mannequins as healthy because we need more mannequins that are in-between sizes. if you're shocked then you need to grow up. If we used a gamut of sizes for mannequins the shoppers would get a better visual of how the advertised clothes actually fit, instead of going in trying something on and walking out disappointed because the garment doesn't look as good on the real body as it does on a big ultra-skinny plastic doll.
Keep the big guy mannequin, and add more sizes of mannequins to the mix. Why is a size 12 so bad? We don't stay in children's sizes forever and we shouldn't be expected to. Forcing the heavier folks to hunt for their garments isn't going to make them meet your expectations of a healthy weight either.
Rejoice in different figure sizes and shapes and stop being so blasted hyper-sensitive to life.

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
