Oh wait, you did that by pointing out the problems with most black blogs. Interesting to say the least! </EM><BR/><BR/>Item 1) I didn't say that this was an issue exclusive to black blogs.

My body is far from perfect and as far as how I physically feel, including my ability to be more acitve and mobile than I am, I often hate my limitations. However, my daughter loves me, does not despise my body and will defend any insult her father or sister dare to launch.

I just can't stand it when the work a woman does to gestate a child is disrespected like that.

Wearing a belly shirt when your belly is out of shape does draw attention to it. Clearly she is not concerned otherwise she would not have worn it. If more women were upfront about the changes to our bodies as we age, give birth, etc instead of hiding, it would not be so shocking.
