2,982 voters participated in this survey

Macy’s has quit selling dinner plates that incited controversy online among people who said they advocated a “toxic message” of portion control. Alie Ward, a science correspondent for the CBS series “Innovation Nation,” tweeted an image of the plates on Sunday with a caption asking how to get the dinnerware banned. The novelty plates in question are designed with measured food portions drawn out on the plates, including a plate with indicators for a “food coma” versus a “foodie” and the most controversial plate with indicators of “mom jeans,” “favorite jeans” and “skinny jeans” decreasing in size. Many other people on Twitter shared Ward’s outrage. Some argued that the plates may encourage eating disorders. One responder explained that the plates proliferate a “toxic message, promoting even greater women beauty standards and dangerous health habits.”
