Not So Fat

August 14, 1988

So, the Weird Al Yankovic video has lots of great "fat" jokes, and Chris Willman recommends we see it (Sound & Vision, July 31). The last acceptable prejudice. . . . Pass.

I'm tired of living in a society that thinks that you can never be too rich or too thin. Well, there are women who are dying to prove that.

Adults (especially women) are expected to look like adolescent boys. Too threatening maybe, if we look like adults. Take a look back at pictures of Twiggy. If you didn't know she's supposed to be a model you'd think she was a concentration camp survivor.

Fine look for her if she's healthy and feels good, but don't push that look off on the rest of us. I'd rather be fat. Willman is incredibly rude, downright insensitive and just plain stupid.
