Here the weight of a women is no issue. The  plumper the better. A women is desired here, because of her weight. Being bigger is a sign that your family is wealthy because you can eat, and eat lots. Women want to be big here,  thats what the men want. It's the complete opposite back home, it seems that the men want the tiny girls. Even at a young, age they start to plump up their kids to the best of their ability, even though it may be very unhealthy and in the case of one of my students, who can barely walk up the stairs to the school. So by looking at the two cultures, what one has the correct view on weight, and the image of women. Is one right and the other wrong, or is there a middle ground somewhere there?
