Models of all sizes transform Times Square into body positive catwalk

All sizes seem not include BMI < 25. Unless they are behind.

Indeed!

This trend is as if smoking suddenly became socially acceptable again.

I don't consider it something deserving social merit or demerit. After all, fat people don't hurt others more than the skinny ones do with their lifestyles. It's just a bit of an omission that they didn't invite skinnier girls, but it probably can happen when you sample from a platykurtic distribution - she wasn't invited either:

@ blubber for the winter
There is one day every year before the winter when I automatically gain 2 kg (even if I eat nothing), as if my body retained some extra water. It remits the same abruptly when the summer comes.

Whether personal behavior (overeating, smoking, etc.) only hurts the individual or also harms others depends on whether the society has a socialized healthcare system. If fat smokers are denied treatment or charged higher insurance premiums then it's strictly an individual decision. Otherwise not.

I used to think like that, but I'm no longer sure it is fair. It's easy to target smokers and fatsos, but what about people with risky sexual behaviours (in London, 1 in 4 has a sexually transmitted illness), pub goers (regular drinking, even light, ruins liver too), work-addicts who don't have time for a dentist, pet-lovers who are at higher risk of developing sepsis, and so on. Everybody does something health-threatening or unhealthy, but it's not always as evident as extra 10 kg of blubber on their arse or smelling like an ashtray, or is obstructed by privacy protection.

In the UK and many other countries, obese people are at the end of line for surgical procedures and treatment involving scarce resources - because of lower success rate.

I'm similar, I think my metabolism kicks up a gear when it's warmer

for those of you who have access, there's a Taylor & Francis journal titled Fat Studies, and one of the most read articles is

“An investigation that concluded in January of 2018 determined that the chapter conducted a contest in which new members could accumulate ‘points’ by engaging in sexual intercourse with women,” the university said in a statement.

Fraternity pledges were reportedly forbidden from telling the women about the contest. If there was a tie, the win would go to the member who had sex with the heaviest female, school officials said.
Don't men often compete with each other over women? If "scoring" the most women or the most attractive one is fine, why not the fattest (after all, fat women say that fat is beautiful)? It's all objectifying and demeaning in some way. Not to mention that women do the same.

The recipe against fat is very simple: follow the Bible commandments and DO NOT EAT PORK.
We, in the family do not eat pork for 12+ years (and also are keeping saturday in addition to usual christianic commandments).
Here is my wife in 2017. She is 44 now:
