Russell Wilson Posts Sweet Mother’s Day Note to Ciara on Instagram

Push Back on Russell Wilson's Mother's Day Note is Fast and Furious primarily from rapper Future’s fans, for two words, “our kids” [VIDEO DISCUSSION]

This past weekend was Mother’s Day and Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson, posted a sweet Mother’s Day note on Instagram to his wife, Ciara, and rapper Future’s fans came for Wilson’s head. The note said:

“Nothing better than spending time with you. You are an amazing mom & I'm so grateful I get to spend the rest of my life with you & raising our kids. I love you! #HappyMothersDay Weekend my love. @Ciara

Surprisingly (or, perhaps, not), people objected to Wilson saying “our kids.”

Should Wilson have not said, “our”?

Are those who objected to Wilson stating “our kids” out of line?

French Government Bans Ultra-Thin Models

Could a ban on ultra-thin models take hold in the U.S.?

Against the backdrop of a global movement to rid the fashion industry of emaciated-looking models, France has become another country to ban the practice. The French government recently passed legislation to ban ultra-thin models. Instead of using BMI as some advocates wanted to determine the health of a model, in France a doctor’s examination is the final say in whether a model is healthy enough to work.

Marisol Touraine, France's Minister of Social Affairs and Health, stated:

"Exposing young people to normative and unrealistic images of bodies leads to a sense of self-depreciation and poor self-esteem that can impact health-related behavior."

France is not the first country to introduce legislation of this kind. Similar laws are in effect in Italy, Spain, and Israel all of which require a minimum BMI.
