UPDATE: Simon Doonan Why ‘Gay Men Don’t Get Fat’ (Video)

We posted the other day about Simon Doonan’s newest book, Gay Men Don’t Get Fat and the majority response was a lot of cringing and cuss words thrown his way for being stereotypical, mean spirited and a poor representation of gay people. On the other side many have come to his defense and Doonan himself says, “using stereotypes is the best way to diffuse them, no matter what your body type.”

 

Stereotypes abound in fashion commentator Simon Doonan’s newest book, Gay Men Don’t Get Fat, but the message is far from being as judgmental as the title may sound. As I teased yesterday, I started my day by making a stop at Barneys for a reading by the author over a breakfast of berries, yogurt and granola. Doonan explains that using stereotypes is the best way to diffuse them, no matter what your body type. (www.dietsinreview.com)
