"You've put on weight!" ... Talk about the cultural divide.

A very interesting column in Today's Zaman.

This is an issue very few people would anticipate when facing a move to Turkey.

In Western cultures it's unacceptable to mention someone's weight, but in Turkey it's fair game.

Do you think as a new expat - or visitor - you should put up with the comments, putting it down to a cultural difference? Or is it simply unacceptable?
