Are you kidding me? Is this really the standard that we are going to set for women these days? Alert the media, fire up the presses.... Jessica Simpson actually has a chest and an ass. SHE HAS CURVES!!! Light the torches, let's burn her at the stake. This woman is gorgeous and while I would take aim at her stylists for what is a hideous outfit (I'm sorry is she dating Tony Romo or Ant'ony Romano "Mafia Kingpin," because in that getup its hard to tell). But seriously... if the world is going to sit here and judge her because she doesn't look like one of those stick insects that now grace all tween/teen tv shows, then we as a society are in trouble. Hey Katie Holmes... the praying mantises would like to know when you're going to eat Tom Cruise's head because you're running a little behind!!!
Now, I am guilty of watching the new 90210 and look at these girls. Is that really what we think that our teenage girls should look like? Where are her breasts? I am pretty sure she, as a female, is supposed to have them. She looks like a freakin' lollipop. Don't get me wrong, I think she is very attractive, but how many of us go out in public in fear of being blown over by a sneeze? Wouldn't it be nice for this young girl to fill out that skirt, instead of requiring an A line number just to give the illusion of a butt and thighs? If she wore a pencil skirt she really would have the same shape as a pencil! And don't fill up my comments with your anger because you are a size 0 and no matter how many pints of Ben and Jerry's you eat, you still resemble this girl. First of all, I don't want to hear it because I inhale oxygen and gain 10 pounds (I won't get into what happens when I inhale B&J's, but it ain't pretty), and secondly that is not my point. There are millions of shapes and sizes in our world and I applaud them all when they come naturally. I just reserve the right to openly mock the super skinny ones. Deal with it.
Now plenty of people could read this and call me bitter. Its probably true. I could wear Jessica Simpson's outfit, but only half of me would fit into it. I am not thin, and I have come to terms with the fact that I am probably not ever going to be, barring major illness (which I pray stays barred). The thing is, I truly don't take offense for myself. I don't even take offense for Jessica Simpson. She is in the media, thus opening herself up to criticism. Comes with the job. But, I am offended for all of the little girls who have seen the picture of Jessica Simpson and now have it imprinted on their brains that her body is fat. Are we that irresponsible as a society that we are going to pass that message along as if its correct? I even blame two of my favorite shows, Good Morning America and The View. Both shows echoed my sentiments that this allegation of obesity is preposterous, but then both shows brought on experts to deduce how much Simpson weighs based on these photos and they brought on diet experts to determine how she should work off the poundage. Hypocritical, party of two!
Jessica Simpson, while guilty of wearing Donna Gotti's wardrobe, is not guilty of needing a diet or analysis of her weight. She is doing her thing despite constant negative publicity about her brain being too small and now her body being too big. I am not a fan of hers, as far as her music goes, but I can respect the voice that chick has and I respect her ability to take it in the face as often as she has and she keeps coming back for more. I challenge those media people who snap the pics and write the slogans to stand on a stage in front of thousands so that we can get a gander at what they look like. Because I am pretty sure they don't have anything on Jessica Simpson! Take a shower, cut your hair, wash your clothes, use a little something we like to call a razor (only $1.99 if you go for disposable), and Mr. Do Rag.. the 70s called and they want your look back. Not so fun when you are on the receiving end, huh? That's for us real fat girls (Jessica Simpson doesn't apply)... we may weigh more, but we still look better than you!
