Speak Up: Which is More Socially Acceptable?

Obesity among women residing in the U.S. has become socially acceptable, mostly because more than one-third of women ages 20 and older are obese.

Obesity among women is a new "social dynamic" that is reportedly becoming more socially acceptable nowadays than in the past. Medically speaking this trend appears to be a dangerous one because of its connection with type 2 diabetes, cancer and other diseases. However, psychologically, it may provide relief to know that you are not the only one packing on the pounds.

Jeez, and all this time I thought being grossly skinny was socially acceptable... So I am curious what you guys think about this whole thing -- Which is more socially acceptable, being too thin or being overweight? Speak up and share your thoughts in the comments section below.
