Fans of boxing deserve champions not only inside the ring, but also outside of it. Mayweather may have won this fight but it doesn't really matter. He could defeat 10 more Manny Pacquiao's but he will never be remembered the way Pacman will be -- as a true fighter. "Money" stands for nothing. He may be undefeated, but he is not a champion.
Women in their 50s are in a precarious position of not being old enough to be seniors but too old to be considered youthful. In many ways we're invisible. We are constantly in search of role models that represent these "tweener" years. When you add curviness to the mix, the representation becomes even smaller and less flattering.
Whether we like it or not, kids and teens look to celebrities for inspiration on how to look, act, speak, and more. Their inspiring stories, personal triumphs, self-acceptance, and decisions to speak out against the industry's standard of beauty and size has us sitting up and taking notice -- and we hope this is a trend we see more of.
