Homeland has been developing a relationship between the hunky C.I.A. operative Peter Quinn, revealed to perfection by actor Rupert Friend, and a big and beautiful redhead as "landlady," played by Emily Walker. The dynamic of a hot guy getting it on with a big and beautiful woman has confused some, but it really shouldn't. There are a lot of men who absolutely adore confident, sexy, big and beautiful women, choosing who she is over the stereotype of what she represents to juvenile American minds.
OK, so Homeland is fiction, but it serves as the perfect platform to discuss a silly prejudice that continues to pervade our country, as well as a mistake too many women make when relationships are new.
