Where's the Balance Gone?

Another 21st century aggravation has occurred in the media celebrity world. Apparently Karl Lagerfeld called Adele "too fat" and everyone is up in arms because we're all sensitive about size and, how dare you be sizeist?

But what if it wasn't Karl Lagerfeld that said it, but a doctor? What if a doctor said that Adele is too fat for her height/age/bone structure/whathaveyou and it's unhealthy? Because it's probably the case. 

People are coming forward claiming that it's an advancement that women are 'embracing their curves' but, it's not. We've lost the balance of things. It's not good to be overweight. You're making your heart pump harder and faster, giving it more work than it needs. You're affecting your bones, your organs and God knows what else. It's not good to be skinny either. The body needs a certain amount of fat to work properly. It's essentially the greatest machine ever created. It works even in adverse conditions but will work so much better if it were kept in ideal conditions. And like every machine it requires maintenance and upkeep. 

So let's get back to the idea of balance - a balanced diet, a balanced weight and a balanced mind. Perhaps then we'll managed to lead a healthy lifestyle without being shocked at every little fart that someone does which is considered 'inappropriate'.

  1. I keep meaning to write a comment about this post but the words always escape me. So I'm just going to go for it.

    I'm so glad you wrote about this issue. It has become a farce and an overly politically-correct world we live in. No one can say what they think, and ultimately the truth is, Adele does not represent the "average" woman. She is larger than the average woman. But we're not allowed to say that are we? Sigh.

    Balance. Precisely. In everything!
