Most of us in the "real world" are not a size 0. Hopefully they will produce this series in a way that is not mocking . . . it seems like "plus sized" people are not portrayed as normal, real people, even though they make up a big majority of our society.
My hope is that this series will represent the normalcy of being who you are and loving who you are no matter what size you are. Our young people are growing up feeling inferior if they are not what society deems as perfection.
We need to show them that self-acceptance, self-love and self-confidence comes at any size . . .
How many people walk this earth feeling inferior because of the constant pounding of the media and society mocking those who are not perfect?
