Fluffy Girl Jeer.....

Paul M. Kramer will be released a self published book to encourage young girls to diet.


As if young girls don't have enough reasons to come home and cry themselves to sleep about the way they look............NOW WE HAVE A BOOK.The description of the book is;

"This book is about a 14 year old girl who goes on a diet and is transformed from being extremely overweight and insecure to a normal sized girl who becomes the school soccer star. Through time, exercise and hard work, Maggie becomes more and more confident and develops a positive self image."

Apparently Mr. Kramer thinks its acceptable to pick on little girls?

My question is who is to say that young chubby girls can't play soccer and be secure about their beauty?Why can't plus size women be confident and have positive self image?WHAT IS NORMAL SIZE?
Am I an advocate for childhood obesity? NO
But I am the little girl who is beautiful,physically active,and loves herself despite her extra fluff.


I don't know what part Im more disguested by, the fact that I know some parents are going to buy their daughter this garbage which could lower her esteem even more OR that this book was written by a man who has NEVER been a 8-12 yrs old girl(his target market).

Am I challenging his right to express his concerns for the health of our young children?NO
But sitting behind a computer targeting young girls is NOT helping! Why not start a camp?A sport league? Something to BE THE CHANGE.

Lastly.....Im wondering why girls were the target,and not young boys?
But what do I know,Im just a fluffy girl trapped in the midwest.....

  1. i think that this could be a smart way to motivate younger girls and make them more aware of the health choices in life...there are many times where i wish i had more guidance in that department instead of people watching me make unhealthy decisions

  2. Funny because I think he is picking on prepubesent girls to make them fit in societies of beauty.

    There are other ways for this to be done,writing a book is not being proactive.

  3. I truely hope that man doesnt have any daughters!!! There is nothing wrong with a little girl being confident within herself! A childs genetics may be the cause of her size, not poor diet or lack of exercise! Beauty comes in all shapes, forms and sizes!!! Not a size 00!!! It's funny that so many people focus on childhood obesity, but no one has a care in the world for childhood eating disorders and the lifelong effects that come along with them!

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

I kinda did a thing......Nothing major...

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
