Most people that are on the heftier size are criticized, put down and ignored on a daily basis. Yes some overweight people are deemed unhealthy and need to definitely changed their outlook and perspective on just how important their life truely is, but not all bigger people are unheathly. Melissa is simply saying that bigger people should not be discriminated against because of their size, they should not be seperated from the barbie/super model type figure when shopping for a new outfit. Some heavier people have medical conditions and cannot help being the size that they are. Please stop and think of words you use when replying to another person post or comment, not everyones opinion is needed nor wanted. People need to stop and research understand what words can do to a persons self esteem, confidence and self worth. Knowing that you are just as important as the petite super model type is sometimes all that is needed.
