What are your thoughts?
I first want to say that no one is saying there is not an obesity problem in America! This is something that is on most of our minds on a daily basis. It is a problem and parents need to do everything they can to help their children correct the problem. Eating right and exercise are the best places to start.
The idea that selling nice clothes in large sizes to help a girls self esteem is a bad idea is beyond me. Lets do everything we can to help these kids. Even if it includes making fashionable clothing in sizes for tweens, teens, and younger ladies. Who does she think she is calling it the "fat" section?! She also says this isn't about fashion - Excuse me?! That is what this segment is about, fashion!
I think selling clothes in such small sizes is a bad idea! Lets teach our children that you have to be a Size 0 (I don't think that is even possible) so they have some severe eating disorders. I know very few girls that can were these tiny sizes, including my daughter! She is stick thin and still wears a size 7. Nothing wrong with that! She looks great! How about not selling clothing for people who are not as tall as all those models out there also! Isn't there a special section for that?
I think this person in this interview is rude and a fat hater! Just listen to her. I don't think she lives in the real world. Someone who has never had a weight struggle can not understand the problem. They think you can just quit eating! They think you are lazy! If you listen to what she says about what to keep them from eating, you know she has never had a weight. It makes me wonder if she has a child.
Yeah Emme! Way to hold your composer and your tongue. And you look great by the way!
