Yeah, the Marilyn was a size 8 or 12 or 14 or whatever idea gets trotted out quite a bit. Of course, that was back before vanity sizing. Comparing apples to apples she was not plus sized or whatever other euphemism one chooses to use.

Beauty though is a tricky word. Beauty can be found in some very strange places. Sometimes there is beauty to be found in ugliness or in places outside of the norm. It is very situational and of course depends on the perception of those involved. I've found, with people, that often inner beauty radiates into outward beauty. A happy, confident fat person often looks more beautiful to me that an 'attractive' person who looks like they hate their lives/themselves.

somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
