Beauty is in the eye of the beholder yet we have traditionally set our sights on society as a collective deems as beautiful so far as peoples' looks go.
But nowadays, anything goes and we live in a society of tolerance and universal acceptance of minorities whether it be race, sexual orientation or even size. We don't need to cook up excuses anymore. In fact I do recall a topic in this forum some months ago where a debater insisted his obesity was due to "hormonal or chemical imbalances"
. It took a large amount of hammering to convince him that the only reason for his condition was his reflexes which caused his arm to continuously dip into a bucket of KFC then bend back towards his mouth....huh, we never heard from him after that.
So, are we headed to seeing Quasimodo look-alike news-readers and tubs of lard in bikinis gracing our beaches?
