I just want to pick up that lovely little kitty and give it a cuddle :)

He/she reminds me so much of my Tigger when he was baby...

On the large clothes/small women article, it seems pretty clear that the advertiser is sending the message that fat women had better wear baggy, not form-fitting, clothes and that if they do, they will look as good as the skinny models in the ads.

Thanks for the post though; it led to an interesting web site.

About Me

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.

Drop me a line!
