You have no idea how long I avoided posting this topic. I don't even know how I feel about it now. But since the mainstream media is tasting blood in the water I'd like to try to gain a little perspective and get some opinions from our brilliant readers.
Well everyone is making a big deal about new pictures that show "plus-size" supermodel Crystal Renn looking very un-plus.
I suppose I'll always cringe at the thought of the whole world keeping an eye on someone's weight. But many people see it the way writer Michael Gross does when he says, "She has cashed in on gaining weight and now she's losing weight...it's worth making an observation about."
Renn's agent says any weight loss isn't all that incredible. She said Renn was simply a little smaller after going hiking for three weeks in Patagonia.
But at the end of the day, is it anyone's business but hers? Or should she lose some measure of status if she falls off the plus-size chart? What do you think?
