This is special.
Editor-in-Chief of Vogue magazine, and widely publicized as being somewhat of a witch, recently opened up to US Magazine. Anna Wintour admitted that she uses stick thin models in her spreads, but suggested she (and her magazine) are aware of body issues. She went on to say:
"I'd just been on a trip to Minnesota, where I can only kindly describe most of the people I saw as little houses. There's such an epidemic of obesity in the United States, and for some reason, everybody focuses on anorexia."
Ok. There are obese people EVERYWHERE lady. Granted you'd probably strike a person down with lightening bolts should they enter your immediate radius packing an extra 5 lbs, but I am willing to bet that people in the real world of New York are also obese. And where exactly were you in Minnesota? The Iron Range? I ran around Lake Calhoun yesterday and did not see 1 obese person, and, certainly no one who appeared to look like a little house. But I understand that my immediate environment doesn't dictate an accurate example of the population as a whole.
I agree obesity is just as much, if not more, of a problem as anorexia. But let's look at the real issue behind both of these diseases: Personal issues with control (needing or lacking), self-esteem, environment and life experience, and dumb asses like Anna Wintour riding her high horse and giving her unwarranted versions as what she sees as truth. Spare us your opinion and go back to what you do best- receiving botox injections, eating 1/2 a grapefruit a day, and picking out your fur coat for the gala to save albino squirrels.
