Being a woman in this society pretty much means being constantly subjected to judgments about your body, but those judgments take on an entirely new pall when they are levied against the first lady.
Michelle Obama has championed campaigns for healthy eating and exercise, which of course means she should be criticized about what she eats and how she looks. Or at least that's what some talk show hosts seem to think.
Newsflash, commentators: being thin doesn't mean you're healthy, being fat doesn't mean you couldn't run circles around someone smaller, and if the body is not yours, you probably shouldn't comment on it.
And women -- even first ladies -- are allowed to eat cheeseburgers.
