Since When Did a Woman’s Weight Become Newsworthy?

This question was posed by Ashlee Simpson.   Ashley has taken to her blog to discuss the topic of the week, Jessica Simpson’s weight. The photo that caused the controversy can be found here.  (I personally think the pants are the problem).

“I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister’s weight. A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman’s weight or figure as a headline on Fox News.

All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you’re a celebrity, there shouldn’t be a different standard.

Is this something you would say to your wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, or even a friend?

I seriously doubt it.

How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure?

Now can we focus on the things that really matter.

I agree with Ashlee, should Jessica’s weight make headlines?
