ACLU, Jenny Craig Band Together to Launch 'Fatty Jeans', Foster Equality

In a historic partnership, ACLU and Jenny Craig introduced 'fatty jeans' this past Friday at Milano Fashion Summit. "We initially wanted to wait for New York Fashion Week," said Dorothy Ehrlich, Deputy Executive Director, ACLU. "But after reading the July issue of Vogue, I knew that this pressing issue couldn't wait." "Let's face it," said Cozette Phifer, who handles media relations for Jenny Craig. "We're in a desperate search for a gimmick. Have you seen the commercial with Kirstie Alley and Valerie Bertinelli? We'll try anything at this point." Designed to fit a fuller-figured woman, fatty jeans, like skinny jeans, cling to a woman's every curve, highlighting such lower-body imperfections as a fat ass or 'kankles'. "It's really about garnering respect for the full-sized community," said Ms. Erlich. "We're challenging perceptions here."
