From a Father

December 8, 2007

Well, I have no idea of why I’m writing this, but it seemed the right thing to do. If you have any comments about my spelling, I’ll just have to say, I’m not an American, I’m from Sweden.

Down to business. I saw in the newspaper, this page of yours. It was an article about women.
Real women if you ask me. I have two children with a woman who’s my previous wife. She has had four children, two before the little angels (and on occasion little demons) we have together.
I remember seeing her trough her pregnancies, she absolutely was the most beautiful I ever saw. She looked like someone who knew everything. It felt like I could ask her anything and she would give an answer.

It seems like the reason you started this blog of yours is how women are portrayed. Women aren’t supposed to be women anymore, but girls. There are in fact a lot of guys/men who prefer real women out there. Maybe someone should sit down with the “great” fashion/media/movie people out there and tell them how things work. None of the little boys or girls they make clothes for, take pictures of and make movies about should have been there to wear or show it, if it weren’t for their mothers (and fathers).

The fellowman.

    I hope you know how healing your words are for us women with body issues. And it’s because you’re not our husband/partner…it’s because you are an anonymous person, whom, even without the unconditional love that “blinds”, still LOVES a woman and her body.

    Bless you!

    That’s wonderful, and good to know that there are men out there who appreciate a “real” woman…so far, I haven’t found one, but I’m not giving up!
