What is Average Anyway??

 

I thought that I was the quintessential average woman.  No way!  Not anymore!  It's Ellen DeGeneres!  So says J.C. Penney.

I'm on a roll for our Blog theme today, which is, what is the standard for average in 2012?  One Million Moms are unable to define the average woman and boy, am I happy about that!  If I had a daughter, I would not want her role model to be the “average” size-4, anorexic model we are seeing in every commercial and magazine cover.  Thank you, JC Penney, for not taking the low road.

I was ten years old when Barbie came out.  She was my role model.  And I have failed to meet her standards ever since.  I do not want my daughter, or any young girls entering their teens, to have to aspire to something that is unattainable and even worse, unhealthy.

Ellen DeGeneres has a lifestyle different  from mine – but she is wholesome, beautiful, funny, and honest.  She is not aspiring after an image of a doll.

You go,Girl!
