Jewelry is the easiest way to get your "blue" on.

Bombshells Everywhere!

What a month it's been already. No matter how much we Bombshells increase public awareness of curvy figures, there are those who just refuse to let go of the old, outdated perceptions.

Take former-model-turned-reality-TV-personality, Janice Dickerson. You may recall that not too long ago, Dickinson had to apologize to Tyra Banks for calling Tyra "fat". Last week she stepped in it once again by adding fuel to her ongoing campaign against plus-sized models. She explained to the Today Show that full-figured girls, no matter how beautiful, don’t belong on the runway.

Then. Last month on MomLogic, a very illogical blogger calling herself "MILF Mommy" (don't get me started, OK?) called herself keeping it real by posting an entry called "Size 12, You're Fat!" You'll have to read the article to get to full nauseating effect. But in short she tells perfectly normal women that their husbands want them to lose weight and that they're just lazy and not doing enough to lose weight. What a crock! Never did she mention that recent studies have shown many women to be completely healthy at sizes SHE believes are unhealthful. Thank goodness "Size 12 Mommy" brought the smackdown.

Girls, don't believe the hype from the naysayers. They're not going to be able to turn the tide back to making the majority of women in this country hate themselves for being normal. The unbelievers are surrounded on all sides. They will be dragged into this century kicking-and-screaming, or they will be left behind.
