A Big Fat Double Standard.
It's not enough to be glamourous. It's not enough to be intelligent. It's not enough to be good at your job. It's not enough to be of good character. It's not enough to be beautiful. It's not enough to be a success. It's not enough to be a mother. It's not enough to be happily married. It's not enough to be respected. It's not enought to be funny and articulate. It's not enough to be human.
Nope, it's just not enough, not if you're a woman.
Observe, from quality paper, The Sun.
"SEXY cook Nigella Lawson has got TV chiefs in a fluster — because her bum has got TOO BIG.
US directors are now avoiding shots of curvy Nigella’s voluptuous rear end, a paper claims.
The New York Post said: “Our spies at the Food Network say Nigella has way overeaten.
“The result is a butt like a horse.
“Her director is now doing back flips to not show her below the waist.”
Yep, she's got a 'butt' like a horse. Not like the slender Mario Batali, or the elf like Emiril 'Bam' Lagasse, or even that most skeletal of all chefs, Marco Pierre White. I mean, how dare she get older. How dare she eat her own delicious food? How very dare she? Doesn't she know she must be a slender nymph? Doesn't she understand her worth is tied up in her figure? After all she is a chef, a public chef. Why she ought to be ashamed. Forget all the other things I mentioned, her 'butt' is getting bigger. The flaming cheek of her!
I'm going off to the gym now. Things will get kicked.
