|What the fuck, VH1???

There is a new show on called "Bridal Bootcamp" which is one of VH1's many ridiculous reality TV programs. The premise of the show is that 10 "overweight" brides-to-be are competing to win a dream wedding. Now let me just define "overweight" for you, as VH1 sees it:|
One girl is a size 18. OK, I'll give you that, since I'm a size 18 myself.
One girl is a size 14. Not fat, but not skinny either.
Everyone else is either a size 10 or a 12... except for one girl who is a size 8.
On what fucking planet is someone who is a size 8 overweight? OK, someone who is a 12 or a 14 may be technically "overweight" I guess, but seeing how the average women's dress size in the USA is a 14 then you have 9 girls on a show for "overweight" brides, that are AVERAGE... OR LESS!!!! Are you fucking KIDDING me????? I wish I was a size 12 and these girls are bitching about how ~fat~ they are. I get wanting to tone up or whatever but come oooonnnnn.
Seriously, fuck the message that shows like this are sending to females. There's already enough body image issues without Bridal Bootcamp type of shit going on.
