Smart, funny, beautiful, kind person. I’m also fat.

The first four adjectives don’t matter because of the fifth. I don’t know if society will ever change, but I appreciate the article. It is, at least, I WAS UPSET by “Why America Hates Fat Women.” Unlike race and sexual orientation, being overweight is not something you’re bom with. Calling for representation of obese women on television and in magazines not to mention implying that not wanting an obese personal trainer makes a person prejudiced is an insult to people who work hard to stay fit and healthy.

I WOULD LIKE to express my concerns about “Why America Hates Fat Women.” After reading it, I was left with the impression that we should support obesity. I thought Marie Qaire supported healthy living. Has this changed? I find it disappointing that obesity, an unhealthy disease, is described in your magazine as something to be proud of What’s next, an article telling us smoking is sexy? Yes, fat people should be supported, but to become a more healthy weight so that they can avoid medical problems in the future and have a longer life span.
