Last night, as I was making dinner, one of those "entertainment news" shows was on in the background. One of their stories caught my attention. They were making a big deal about the magazine Cosmo Girl because they were using a "plus size" model as their covergirl. They then showed parts of the photo shoot with a beautiful young girl who was, in no way, "plus sized". The "news" anchor then commented that this was the second time the magazine had used a size 10 model.
SIZE 10!!!!!!!! What kind of message is this sending to young girls?? If they wear a 10, they are overweight and plus sized?? Last time I shopped, plus sizes begin at 16, not 10. ARRRRGGGGHH! This makes me SO crazy! Really, we should try to keep our girls away from such magazines with those insane ideas!!
