Dear Labia Amore
I am a guy who has never seen a playboy in his life because I find it distateful and degrading to women every where.I think that it is sending a message that every girl has to be beatuiful, but you have to have a man who is a foot long. In my eyes that is BS. All the freinds I have are girls. But sense I am "fat" they would not give me the time of day. And all there dreams are to live at the playboy mansion. You have no idea how that disgusts me because they are so inteligent. Anyway I read your letters and it hits right home because we have all been insulted by what we look like. And I bet if more men and women talked more and did not feel ashamed for watching tv shows that the other sex likes or magazines then I bet there would be more understanding. I probably see this because I am big boned, I am only 250. But to everyone else that means I should be treated less as a person. And from reading your letters I to see that the internet is full of people that lie or insult people for how they are. And if there were more understanding you would have emails by the hundreds because you sound like a sincere person as well as someone that had to learn to sheild there feelings from other people like I had to.
P.S Every women in the world no matter what is beautiful and that people who say other wise should A get there head examined B take a long look in the mirror, C Keep the cruilty to themselfs.
And to all those who writte you letters about who they are being treated send them courage confidence and respect.
Although I'm very sympathetic towards your position, I don't agree with your ideas about Playboy. In my view they simply celebrate the beauty of women and there is nothing wrong with that. As you say yourself you've never seen a Playboy magazine so it's a bit unfair to bash them just based on presumptions. Really, they are not as bad as you think. It's not their fault that some women are so narrow minded that they can't think of anything else but living at Hef's Mansion.
I do agree completely that people should be more understanding towards others and that they should never judge each other based on what the other looks like. However, we can't ignore that people will always enjoy 'good looks' in another person. That in itself isn't shallow. But to treat the not so good-looking as lesser human beings for it is more than shallow — it's weak and cowardly.
