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.
