Stop The Objectification December 3, 2007

FITSNews – December 3, 2007 – Amazingly, that’s not a picture of the Queen Mary 2 docking in San Francisco, although we think you’ll agree the water displacement is remarkably similar. That, dear friends, is Jennifer Love Hewitt, who today let certain people who have made fun of her weight in the past know that she’s had enough. From her official website:

This is the last time I will address this subject.

I’ve sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women’s bodies are constantly scrutinized. To set the record straight, I’m not upset for me, but for all of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image.

A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful.

What I should be doing is celebrating some of the best days of my life and my engagement to the man of my dreams, instead of having to deal with photographers taking invasive pictures from bad angles. I know what I look like, and so do my friends and family. And like all women out there should, I love my body.

To all girls with butts, boobs, hips and a waist, put on a bikini — put it on and stay strong.


It takes a lot to touch our inner children, but this the closest anybody has come in a long, long time. In fact, we’re fundamentally rethinking our whole approach to life, because it really shouldn’t be about getting cheap laughs at somebody else’s expense.

Incidentally, we heard there was a postscript originally attached to this message that made a loud foghorn sound and had something to do with Jennifer Love Hewitt eating people, but we’re guessing her publicists took that part out. Assuming she hasn’t eaten them, anyway … what? We’re just reporting the news, people.

2. Just me - December 3, 2007

Let me tell you how hard it is for women to deal with issues of body image. Let me tell you how you struggle when your child tells you at six that she is fat and that she doesn’t like fat people. Let me tell you how hard it is when you are never that five pounds thin enough. Let me tell you how hard it is to be pregnant and worried about gaining too much weight. I could go on and on.

You have (some) insightful thoughts on politics. But this objectification of women has got to stop. Sure, it may be cute – and draw people to your site – and there may be a subtext about how you are demonstrating how base the average American’s interest level is (but I doubt most people visiting this site get this). The bottom line is that too many smart woman suffer from some form of an eating disorder or disordered body image – and we need it to stop. Maybe you could post pictures of women’s brains? 🙂

This is a serious post. This time – it’s too much. I hope you hear what I am saying.

Bet you’d like for her to touch your … well, you know.

Nice view though … one of your best ones yet.

Sounds like this one has hit home for “Just Me.”

There are just as many dumb women out there as there are fat. It is foolish to let anyone define who you are by your appearance OR your intelligence. It is also foolish to spend the time bitching about a post by someone who’s girlfriend’s size exceeds that of Jennifer Love Hewitt herself.

She looks better in a bathing suit than you do.
