That was before I read the headline on People.com.
Jennifer Love Hewitt: 'A Size 2 Is Not Fat!'
Please excuse my language when I say, "No shit? Really? A size 2 isn't fat? Thanks Jennifer Love Hewitt for clearing that up."
Hewitt, 28, wrote on her blog after the pictures were plastered all over the internet saying, "Like all women out there should, I love my body, I know what I look like, and so do my friends and family." She goes on to say, "I've sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women's bodies are constantly scrutinized. To set the record straight, I'm not upset for me, but for all of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image."
She continues to have diarrhea of the mouth by adding, "A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size 0 doesn't make you beautiful. … To all girls with butts, boobs, hips and a waist, put on a bikini – put it on and stay strong."
What angers me about this blog post is that it seems soooo defensive. She comes across to me as saying, "I am a size 2. That's not fat. I'm not fat. These pictures make me look kinda fat, but I am a size 2 and that means I'm not fat." She tries to come across like she is disgusted with the way celebrities are scrutinized for their weight by the media and as a result young girls are becoming brain washed in what is actually thin. However, I would like to write a blog to Jennifer Love Hewitt. Here it it:
Dear Jennifer Love Handles,
A size 2 is not fat. A size 0 doesn't make you beautiful. However, you definitely are not a size 2. I am not either. Does that make me fat? During your entire girl power feminist blog post, I was disgusted that you didn't point out that a size 4 is not fat. A size 6 isn't fat either. I'm a size 6 and I would never write a blog saying size 2 is not fat. I would say a size 8 isn't even considered fat, ESPECIALLY if you're a tall person, I could go on as well, I know size 10 and 12 people who look lovely in bikini and I wouldn't call them fat. I do not know why you chose to use a size 2 as an example but I don't think anyone is going to argue that a size 2 is not fat. NO ONE except the a**hole on YouTube who has nothing better to do. You got photographed having a little bit of cellulite. Who doesn't, ask Tyra Banks. Sure she is crazy but she came out with her real weight number and wore a bikini on national TV. You instead, wrote a blog telling us something that we have always known and made it out like you were this heroic public figure for standing up to the media. No, you're not. But you made my size-4 friend think she is fat. Are you calling her fat?
What do you guys think about her blog post. Here is the link to her blog.
