Making snide comments about skinny women is no different than bullying a woman into believing she's too fat to be attractive. I know we like to support the underdog, but the underdog becomes relative to who's being bullied. This is why I find the term "reverse bullying" redundant.

Perhaps an argument could be made that the songs are so strong they represent emotions at moments of great joy or stress, delight or disappointment. But it's not a very persuasive argument.
