How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure?
Right on, Ashlee! Right there, she took a single incident, that being Fox's interest in Jessica Simpson's weight, and turned it into a societal issue. I'm kind of in awe of her right now, especially for the bolded part:
I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister's weight. A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman's weight or figure as a headline on Fox News.
All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you're a celebrity, there shouldn't be a different standard.
That woman deserves major kudos and a "This Is What A Feminist Looks Like" t-shirt. Maybe she'll go after the destructive nature of photoshopping celebrity covers next!
