Fluffy Girl Jeer.....
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.....
