As a guy, I can’t fully relate to the body image issues women deal with. I can, however, have an opinion. And, in our celebrity-obsessed culture, the level of distortion about what is beautiful, or even for that matter, normal and healthy, has officially reached surreal levels.
This mean-spirited tabloid story about photos of Jennifer Love Hewitt and her supposed weight gain is so dysfunctional, it practically defies belief. When a size 2 woman with, gulp, a pocket of cellulite, has to defend her figure, how far have we fallen from reality?
