Ironically on boobquake day, I will have two articles of interest on the boobies. Boobquake was started when blogger Jennifer McCreight heard an Iranian Cleric proclaim that scantily clad women (among other things) caused earthquakes. She organized a day encouraging women to wear scantily clad clothes to see if would cause earthquakes.
But FOX and ABC are not Iranian clerics. Both networks refused to show an ad featuring a plus size model in her bra and insisted on it being edited. I doubt modesty has anything to do with it. FOX is the home to such shows as The Swan, Joe Millionaire, and other shows where women demean themselves and ABC had an entire prime time special of Victoria Secret models in their undies. But Lane Bryant was different. Lane Bryant on the other hand sold bras that fit those of us with meat, muscle, and boobs. I guess allowing this commercial to air might encourage women to perhaps not diet their way into the fantasy of Victoria's Secret.
FOX reluented only when Lane Bryant threatened to pull the ad entirely. ABC claims they never denied the ad and that Lane Bryant is making it up. (Those silly fatties!)
Unfortunately due to the fact that it is so hard to find an actress/actor on TV that even looks like the Lane Bryant model, I'm going to have to side with Lane Bryant. In the past I have seen clothing companies choose image over cash. Being fat is the one place where money doesn't always decide everything.
But back to boobies. A good study came in (from Sweden) that said if girls are fat at seven, they have less of a chance of developing breast cancer. Shame that I didn't get fat until I was 10.
Let's hear it for the boobies!
