She wasn't the perfect mom. Maybe she was the anti-mom. But I loved Betty Draper for all her contradictions and imperfections. And she doesn't deserve her fate. If you're a longtime fan of Betty Draper, raise your hand! No takers? OK, I admit Betty has a lot of flaws. A lot of big flaws.
Attention "Mad Men" fans: It's time to leave Betty (Draper) Francis' body alone. Last night "Mad Men" returned -- and along with Don's cheating ways, Megan's excellent sartorial choices and Peggy's badass lady boss demeanor, we were subjected to a deluge of fat-shaming comments about Betty.
Henry, Betty's politician husband, to his credit, never once shames her for her changing looks. I can't say the same for "Mad Men" viewers, many of whom appear to see Betty's weight gain as a reason in and of itself to dislike her.
