Did anyone here watch "Cold Case" on CBS last night?? It was about an overweight young woman that went to a video dating service back in 1989 and ended up getting killed. They made remarks like how she wasn't "dating material" and so forth. Actually, she had a pretty face and hair and wasn't like 500 lbs., but cuz she wasn't a skeleton with big boobs, she was considered a real plain jane! Now the episode was supposed to be teaching a moral lesson as well as entertain the audience. I thought it sucked, since it seemed like the fact that they had to use a real live actress to play the plain jane (as well as other actresses to play some others), they were saying that ALL these women were not "good enough" for a decent guy to date. I felt bad for the actresses playing the parts! And the biggest thing that griped my butt, was that the handsome guy actually "fell in love" with the big girl...wanted to marry her, BUT not once di the actor playing the handsome guy EVER have to do a scene where he kisses the "big girl/plain jane"! I mean, it's so hypocritical!! How does Hollywood expect us to take them seriously when they want us to BELIEVE that hey are empathetic, when they do an episode that actually preaches one thing but teaches another?!?!?! PUH-LEEZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! skull mad

You have missed you calling girlfriend...you should be the editor of a best selling magazine lol.
I'm with you all the way - thats discrimination (spelling?) we are how we are..and in my case there's room for improvement in the weight department but hey..I am a beautiful person on the inside!
I would rather be 'roundy' and loved - than be skinny and a real moo!
Actually I would love to be just the right weight and loved lol.

If they would look around, they would see that the vast majority of married people are basically average folks. yes, overweight people are, (GASP!), married and are in love! If only modelesque people got to fall in love and get married, there'd be a lot less folks in the world! GEEZ!!!!!!!!!

Geez! Show me one (yes just one!!) NORMAL person. Everyone is different and we should celebrate this NOT pick them out.

I have been anorexic and now am slightly overweight but I am still me.

Play-doh is still play-doh no matter what shape you make it - as long as it's good play-doh , you'll have a great time with it.

And another thing , I'm not happy with this 00 size......If it hadn't been invented in the first place people wouldn't strive to be that size - they would just be people feeling a bit silly having to hold their clothes up with safety pins.

Smiler,
Congrats with your overcoming anorexia! Your play-doh analogy was GREAT! I get tired of seeing all these ultra-thin Hollywood gals, such as Nicole Richie, being talked down about being so skinny on the scandal sheets, but at the same time, they're glamorizing them too. And look how they treated Kirstie Allen before she lost the weight! Those celebs can't win!

I saw a shocking documentary on HBO the other night called Thin and it really brought up the image issues in girls and that it comes from t.v. and movies and the women these girls idolize. After seeing that, give me overweight ANY day.
