Who Are All These People...

[Ta-Nehisi]

...complaining about Christina Hendricks body? Are they men? No. seriously. I don't get this. I mean I get that we all have different types and some of us are into the petite thing, but I don't get complaining. Jay-Z's song "Girls, Girls, Girls" is ignorant and filled with some pretty nasty stereotypes...And yet there is a kernal of truth in there about the male mind.

I like curves, but I would never say that means I dislike skinnier women. I mean, I also like strawberry shortcake. But German chocolate , devil's food, lemon--among other things, among almost anything--can get it too...

On the real though, it would have been nice if they quoted someone complaining.
