It is time for women in the West (just as in South Africa) to reject the media's aesthetic values as a foreign expression that has nothing to do with their own physiques, nothing to do with their Old World heritage or their historic beauty traditions, of which their well-fed bodies are such glorious expressions.

The hostile and foreign aesthetic values that the media and fashion push upon women are truly a global and multicultural problem. Women of Hispanic heritage are also naturally and traditionally full-figured. Women in the Hispanic culture love food, love cooking, and revel in our sumptuous bodies. But unfortunately, most of the Latin American/Hispanic celebrities of the day have conformed to the thinner-is-better mentality.

This is why I am so thrilled with plus-size goddess Rosie Mercado. She is truly more representative of what real Latina beauty is. I am grateful to this site, because it boldly champions the full-figured ideal.
