Anyone else want to weigh in on this?

It appears to me that young people are much less concerned about size than when I was young 30+ years ago. I see fat young women out with friends all the time now. My high school had plenty of fat girls. However, the majority of them never socialized (you never saw them after school or on the weekend). Things are very different today.

Also, its been my experience that size acceptance does indeed vary geographically. New England and the west coast seem to be the most accepting. The heartland -- not so much.
