And we wonder why.......

I was standing in line at the check out tonight in Walmart and noticed something that really made me sad.

The first thing I saw was this.

Really? We, as a nation, call this ok? In what other place would it be OK to publicly point out all the flaws on another person's body? And worse, why do we think it's alright to point out flaws on a body that is perfectly fine? Since when is a size 4 butt TOO BIG? Good Lord. Is it any wonder that young women think they're fat when they weigh 98 lbs?

And the ironic and sad thing is that magazine was sitting no more than 2 feet from this.

Is it any wonder that we have a nation of people with eating disorders, drug problems (self-medicating their depression due to a poor self image) and obesity?

Sigh. My heart breaks seeing stuff like this!
