Every woman, gay man, and metro straight guy knows that there has been yet another scandal over models that are too skinny. I say “yet another” because when Kate Moss hit big in 1993, she started a “waif look” that moved fashion away from the curvy glamor girl era of Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Linda Evangelista, toward young skinny girls who ultimately got so thin that people started calling their look “heroin chic.”
The latest episode arose when the city of Madrid banned models that were under a certain weight. How skinny are models these days? Well here are some pictures I found showing back-stage shots at New York’s Fashion Week. Based on these pics, I’d say they are pretty fucking skinny.
Dig these girls: I think the one on the left has ribs that stick out further than her boobs.
I’d be scared to bang the girls below. I think my manhood would be cut up by their boney insides.
Oh look, the girl below is eating her one weekly meal!
So who is to blame for this sorry situation? Within the fashion industry itself, it seems there is much blaming of others, but no one who will accept responsibility. Time states:
Modeling agencies, the motherly folks who inform the models that they can eat or work but not both, say it’s because photographers demand subjects with skin, bones and preferably nothing else. The photographers say it’s the designers who set the limits. Giorgio Armani, one such designer, last week blamed the stylists, the people who put together the looks for the photo shoots at the magazines. The magazines say it’s Hollywood or it’s advertisers or it’s both. And the advertisers say people find their products more desirable when on, next to, or usually just barely covering slender body types.
Let us analyze the above to see if we can figure out just who is guilty. Who are the people in these various categories of the fashion world? Women and gay men, that’s who. Straight male stylists? I don’t think so. In other words, the people promoting the super skinny aesthetic are those who have no sexual interest in women. Oh sure, there may be the occasional lesbian or the brilliant straight guy who gets in to fashion to meet girls and later commits suicide because the girls in fashion don’t eat and the real woman outside of fashion won’t bang him because they think he is gay.
But one thing is for sure: straight guys are not to blame. I apologize to the feminist conspiracy theorists who think that straight men have plotted to create eating disorders in young girls everywhere by promoting unrealistic images of women in the media. Sorry, ladies, you are going to have to find another target for your hate other than straight white men. Those boys like women with curves. It’s your own female sisters and your fabulous gay friends who promote those terrible images, not us.
The evidence? FHM and Esquire magazines both recently named Scarlett Johannson “The Sexiest Woman Alive.” Ever seen Scarlett? This woman eats.
Now that’s a woman. 100% natural, too. Oh wait, what about her ass you say?
Ok there, now believe me? Past winners include Jessica Biel and Angelina Jolie, so more curves on those girls too. There is no way girls who starved themselves to Dolce & Gabbana emaciation would ever win this contest. If I could have my personal pick, Jessica Alba, toned yet curvy, would be the sexiest woman alive.
You girls with with eating disorders can stop paying attention to the beauty aesthetic of gay men and other women. You can stop picking at your salad on dates. You can even order dessert. You want to land a real man? We real men want real women.Tweet Follow @rooshv

I’ve been saying this for years. Though I’m a black guy so you know we love thick.
But I don’t care what anyone says Scarlett Johanson is a fucking dude. Have you heard how deep her voice is. I know her balls are bigger than mine. If not she’s roiding or on growth hormones. I heard she shaves her face every day.
Something should be said about grown women who compare themselves to 13-15 year old models…..
Brilliant, this needs a “masterpiece” tag!
I was just reading the November issue of Vegas magazine and learned that Penelope Cruz had to wear a prosthetic ass for her role in the movie Volver. My jaw dropped to the floor! Actresses and models frequently starve themselves then buy fake boobs because they have 0% body fat (boobs are almost 100% fat tissue). Now they’re so skinny they’re wearing fake asses! (BTW, ass implants have become popular with the wealthy in Central and South America).
Has it really come down to this? I’ve been meaning to blog it but I haven’t gotten around to it. I don’t even know where to begin. Maybe I’ll just link here.
Great post…although you are confusing big tits with curvy in terms of Angelina…She is sexy as fuck but she is NOT curvy. J-Lo is curvy. Beyonce is curvy.
Angelina is pin skinny with huge tas…just a comment.
I adore Scarlett and Alba has let the skinny affect her. Have you seen pics of her lately? Skin & bones…so sad.
In a related story…really sad.
I broke up with a girl because she was so skinny I was afraid I’d break her or she would break my buddy.
Not taking care of yourself, on either side of the spectrum, is unattractive.
“Curvy” is an essentially meaningless term now. It can mean moderately overweight, it can mean Jessica Alba (apparently), or anything in between.
I think the concern with too-skinny models is a bit overwrought. We (Americans) are dying from obesity and heart disease, not anorexia. Although anorexia is bad too. Obviously.
Jessica Alba is way too thin. Most girls in Hollywood now, though not as skinny as models, are still totally anorexic. They look ten years older than they should because they have no fat in their faces. So their eyes look sunken in and the mouth is droopy. Thank god make up and great photoshopping can work wonders.
* Author’s note: As a former blogger, I sometimes skim through past favorite blogs, but rarely post a comment, because, as we all know, no one likes the “anonymous” stuff. But, I couldn’t let this post pass me by this morning.
I think most of this post is fairly accurate, in terms of the intense effect the mass media and advertising has had on women’s perceptions of beauty, health, thinness, etc. I think that’s pretty common knowledge these days. What’s equally interesting is the never-ending cycle of all this bullshit – we go on and on about the “problem” of women being too skinny, of 8-year-old girls developing eating disorders, of Hollywood propagating the problem with actresses such as Kate Bosworth, Nicole Richie, etc., and yet, every time we write about it, we act as though it’s some new phenomenon. We gasp, we point, we say shit like, “Ew, those girls are too thin. And besides, real men want real women.” But, sadly, when the media tries to give us something different, tries to show how the majority of women do look–i.e., Dove’s “real beauty” campaign with the average-sized women as models–America’s response is, “Ew. Who wants to see cellulite and a little roll here or there posted on a billboard or in a magazine?”
My only real caveat with your post is that I don’t really know where you’re coming from with the whole “feminist conspiracy theorists” bit. I’m certainly no women’s studies expert, but the bits of feminist theory that I have read have almost always pointed toward mainstream media and Hollywood as the true culprits of women’s distorted body images and not, well, “straight white men.” Also, the men out there should know that you’re “thinness” judgment isn’t the only one with which we are dealing. Women are just as interested in being skinny in the eyes of other women and their girlfriends as they are in the eyes of men. So it’s coming from all sides — the media, men, and women. We’re all to blame, at least a little bit. Period. And rather than point fingers, why can’t we just accept our blame and freaking do something about the problem already?
Also, although I definitely agree that Scarlett Johansen is gorgeous and a nice, curvy change from, say, Kate Bosworth, I think what’s equally important to note is that she’s curvy for HOLLYWOOD, not for mainstream America. She wears a size 4. The average woman wears a size 12.
Sorry for being so long-winded. I do think it’s commendable for a man to write about this topic, so kudos for that.
I am officially stepping off my soapbox.
You make a good point about the fashion world setting this new asthetic skinny standard. And the fashion world is run by women and gay men not straight men.
But the thing it is … what effect does this have on straight men? I mean the models in those pics make Nicole Richie look healthy. And the Johannsons, Biels, and Albas start to look like a rubinesque (sp?) Jane Mansfield or Marilyn Monroe. But in truth, these women are no more than a size 0, 2 or maybe a 4 (Scarlett). On average, women in the US are a size 12. And most women I know in DC range from a 6 to a 12. So while it is slightly encouraging that men don’t want their women to be emaciated, I’m not sending out the applause just yet. Do you know what it takes for most normal women to look like a Biel or Alba? Without a personal trainer and professional chef on staff? Let’s just say they probably eat a hell of a lot of salad and skip dessert. Those aren’t “real” women either. Although they are healthy, which I guess counts for something.
KAC isn’t as appealing as she likes to think she is…has anyone ever seen her eat?
I saw that today, Kassy, and wow… pretty face but scary that she only weighed 88 pounds at her death. I mean, a kid weighs 88 pounds, not a full grown woman that isn’t a midget!
I happened to think about this a couple of days ago after reading something else, and it’s true – fashion is dominated by gay men, and it makes sense that these super-skinny chicks rule the runways because they have the bodies of 12-year-old boys, which might appeal to gay men.
I’d rather buy something with Cindy Crawford, Scarlett, or other gals like Gabrielle Reece – athletic and healthy with muscle and real breasts than the stick figure bobble heads with razor-like bones and bulimia.
Any woman who survived jr. high can tell you that women inflict far more damage upon one another than men could ever dream. Still, many men do continue to hold unrealistic standards for female beauty.
That being said, I’d go lesbian for Scarlett J. ANY DAY.
[...] This morning Chaco at DC Bachelor saved the day for me: The waif aesthetic really is out of control and high society is going crazy. How many of them are in the hospital with anorexia? Please don’t tell me; it’s too depressing to even think about. The look these women are sporting are not attractive. In fact I think they look positively ill: [...]
I’m not worried. evolution will weed out the emaciated and obese ladies… leaving the healthy ones :)
that’s the problem – the average size is yes average based on this selection criteria – but based on pure healthy/bmi conditions – that average is horrible. Look anywhere else in the world – and you do not see the average in the high of a range – based upon diet, exercise, etc. One does not need a personal chef and trainer to be healthy – one needs to educate themselves on their body type and eat and exercise accordingly. Too bad the capitalistic society we have here essentialy works to kill you instead of promoting a healthy well-being. Cheers!
chaco, you’re making a mistake by encouraging women to “stop picking at their salads”. fact is, for every sensationalist media story of an anorexic starving herself to death there are 100,000 fat blobs slowly dying of clogged arteries and diabetes, not to mention committing the grave offense of polluting the scenery. call me an environmentalist.
you have a point about gay men exerting their sexual aesthetics onto the types of models chosen for runway shows; however, if you look to mainstream fashion models (ie: the ones who are viewed by way more people than the few strutting in the insular hothouse of haute couture) you will see that they are all quite womanly (which means, for those of you steeped in feminist sourgrapes ideology, that they are NOT anything like porcine Dove “models”. no, they have the classic attributes that the VAST majority of men desire — 0.7WHR, clear skin, small chin, big eyes, lustrous hair, high cheekbones, 17-22 BMI, symmetrical features and youth).
poppygirl, the media has ZERO effect on what men desire. men are hardwired by millions of years of evolution to spring wood for girls who exhibit key fertility signals. the media can no more alter that biochemical thermonuclear blast of lust than it can send cultural shockwaves into your bosom to make you hot for toothless, penniless, shit-smeared street bums.
Yeah, starvation is bad. Go over to africa and see for yourself. Thats the one good thing about hip-hop/rap music. It introduced white men/women to big ol titties and asses. J-LO, Beyonce, Scarletts can all get it and thats the way a woman should look, not this runway anorexic mess. I have the ears of some powerful politicians and i’m in the process of trying to push through legislation that would put Popeye’s chicken outlets on every corner of every major city in america…..
pills, leaving aside the urge to blame capitalism for personal weakness, you are correct about the ideal weight range.
my advice to women (and men, to a lesser degree) is to adhere to the 1959 met life charts showing healthy weight range for people of various heights. they are more accurate than the 1983 revision whose higher weight standards have no scientific foundation.
Follow my height and weight standards and you’ll be fine..
1. Does your ass make your body look like apple bottom???? If so your healthy
2. Does the sight of your ass make men cry????? If so you gots a onionbooty and your healthy
3. Is your ass so phat I can see it from the front??? If so your healthy
4. Does your chest bounce up and down during sex cause pain??? If so your healthy
5. Does your chest cause men to loose concentration when they talk to you???? If so your healthy
6. Do men constantly brush their elbows and arms against your body??? If so your healthy
7. When you walk do you hear the words, “Sweet Jesus”!! If so, your healthy.
“that’s the problem – the average size is yes average based on this selection criteria – but based on pure healthy/bmi conditions – that average is horrible.”
I agree. One unfortunate side effect of all this hand-wringing over models who are too skinny is that it sometimes leads to cheering on women who are just as unhealthy, but in the opposite direction. No one wants to hear “This is what a REAL woman looks like!” if that woman weighs 250 pounds.
Our ideal weight is what our genetics say it is. Not what fashion designers say, not what Camryn Manheim says, not what Maxim magazine says, and not what your friends say when you get together and make fun of Paris Hilton. I think one of the major problems in this area is that we don’t have any good, objective tools to gauge whether one’s weight is healthy or not. They are all biased or influenced in one way or another.
btw, chaco, i have an intuition about you. you like posting about subjects that require you to scour the net for jpegs of hot babes. ;)
Hey I walk on water faster than I do land so pour a little liquor out on the sidewalk for me. I’m talking like 5’7 130-lbs is about right man…..
I like some meat on my girls bones! But seriously, as stated they look like concentration camp surviors, which is tragic not hot. I hope they end up getting the help they need.
These media images are such a terrible problem in the U.S. I mean, my god, when I walk the streets I am just saddened by all those waif like, starving women that I see everywhere. Not.
I’m not ready to concede that media has NO effect on what men (or women) desire. I agree that we are genetically/evolutionarily hard-wired to desire healthy looking (and smelling)people. But the definition of healthy really changes based on culture and the era, and media has a great affect on that … from Jane Mansfield to Twiggy.
At 5’2″ – 130lbs, size 8, I’m healthy – at least medically speaking I’m not at a higher risk level for heart disease or diabetes. I work out 6 days a week, can easily run 6-7 miles, and eat a well-balanced diet. I can’t remember the last time I was sick. But I’m far from the ideal Alba or Biel. They got ferraris for metabolisms and I got a Geo Metro. But enough whining …
I guess what I’m trying to say is that a healthy/fit woman does not necessarily look like Alba/Biel. You can be healthy and fit and not necessarily as thin as a size 0, 2 or 4. And, of course, as the pics show clearly – you can be thin and not necessarily healthy or fit. There’s a range of healthy and what people find ideal along that range (from an Eva Langoria size 0 to a Marilyn Monroe size 12) changes based on the particular person and the culture of the times, which is undeniably influenced by the media.
Oh, one other thing. “Sizes” are not a good way to compare Marilyn Monroe’s body to the body of someone alive today. In response to everyone getting fatter, clothing companies have made sizes larger which means she would actually be a smaller size today than she was when she was alive.
See what I mean? The metrics are all screwed up.
Sweatpants is right…the metrics are all messed up. A size 12 in 1953 is not a size 12 now. It’s more like a size 8-9.
But that being said…the reason why Beyonce & Jlo and Scarlett pop out at us (men & women) is like what Roissy said…they give the appearence of health & fertility.
They have thick, luscious hair & toned yet curvaceous builds along with bright eyes and symmetrical features.
They are just sexy. Super skinny or super fat is not skinny.
In terms of models, ones that are thin but also curvy and rock my world (as a straight woman) are Laeticia Costa, Adriana Lima & Claudia Schiffer.
Tall, curvy, slender, busty, nice asses.
Super skinny or super fat is not sexy….not not “skinny” lol
I’d let those models snort lines off my cock any day of the week.
True, super skinny isn’t sexy, but a model’s main purpose is to make the clothes she is wearing look good. Not necessarily to be sexy herself.
As far as the too skinny/too fat thing goes, there’s obviously not a glut of too-skinny people in the US. However, women check out models and actresses and know they will never, ever look like the ideal, so why not have another fistful of Ruffles? Where are all the hot in-between girls? The athletes? We need more of those to look to for hotness comparisons to get us…doing triathalons or something.
“the media has ZERO effect on what men desire. men are hardwired by millions of years of evolution to spring wood for girls who exhibit key fertility signals. the media can no more alter that biochemical thermonuclear blast of lust than it can send cultural shockwaves into your bosom to make you hot for toothless, penniless, shit-smeared street bums.”
In southern India, the bushier a woman’s eyebrows, the more attractive she is. Some people find lip disks incredibly attractive, or elongated necks. Incan nobility would apply boards to the skulls of their infants to produced elongated, conical heads. Beauty standards vary from culture to culture, and culture is produced and reinforced through, among other means, the media.
If beauty, or anything, were simply genetically hardwired, then beauty would be uniform and static across cultures and time periods. As it isn’t, one should conclude that there is, in fact, something else at play.
Hedonistics post reminded me that the super skinny asthetic is almost a “class thing” the higher a womans class, the more pressure there is to be “perfect” and that includes being the “perfect” size. It shows how much self control you have, and it’s VERY competetive.
Women of less means, unless they do allot of home cooking, are more likely to eat food that isn’t good for them (fast food) and we know how horrible that is for you, even a regular meal is WAY out there in calories. People are wired to eat everything that we can and the food industrial complex takes advantage of that.
“But the definition of healthy really changes based on culture and the era,”
this is a common trope, but it has very little evidence in reality. the oft-cited refrain is to point to the fat chicks painted by the old masters. the truth is that none of those guys who painted fat chicks were painting masturbation fantasy material. The myth-busting truth is that the bulk of female representation in artwork during reuben’s period featured lo and behold! slender beauties with 0.7 WHRs.
the media does not influence sexual desire; it reflects it.
“At 5?2? – 130lbs, size 8, I’m healthy ”
your BMI is 23.8; on the high side of normal weight. if you want to optimize your health and your attractiveness to men you should lose about 15 lbs. according to the 1959 met life charts, if you are a girl with a medium-sized frame you want to be between 109 and 122 lbs.
“Marilyn Monroe size 12″
dress sizes have been getting bigger, probably because clothing manufacturers know that it pays to feed (heh) the delusions of women who won’t push away from the table.
also, marilyn had a 23″ waist. a perfect hourglass figure. she was actually at her thinnest when she was most in demand.
Here’s a suggestion for all those too fat/too skinny women. Go to the gym. Change your body composition so that your curves are based on muscle, not fat. Change your eating habits, which dictate 70-80% how you look. The key to looking great is being healthy.
Screw trying to look like someone else just to fit in with the popular crowd. Keep in mind what attracts men on an animalistic level, and be comfortable in your own skin.
BMI with hight/weight is somewhat useless when measureing muscle Calipers are where it’s at.
In Polynesia, fat was once considered most attractive, because it reflected wealth.
Victorian-era Brits loved pale, pale skin. Now we love tan, tan beauties. I guess in 150 years we evolved into a new species or something.
tacoma, BMI is only misleading when using it to predict healthy weights for bodybuilders. for everyone else, it’s a solid measurement tool.
spanky, what you are listing are peripheral to the basic attributes of female attractiveness i listed above. accoutrements and skin color account for very little in what actually turns on a man. (although recent scientific studies have unearthed a male preference for females with lighter skin tones relative to local phenotypes).
there was a study done about 10 years ago where 20 pencil drawings of females with varying WHRs were shown to men from cultural backgrounds as varied as the netherlands and the congo. the researchers were surprised to discover that nearly all the men from all across the globe chose the same 1 or 2 women as the most attractive.
Roissy, you are wrong. Calipers.
Roissy: “btw, chaco, i have an intuition about you. you like posting about subjects that require you to scour the net for jpegs of hot babes.”
Stay tuned for a future post on porn.
Those models are fugly. If I wanted to see someone half-naked with the body of a 10-year old Phillipino boy I’d go to the South Pacific. Jessica Alba? Way, way, way hotter.
BMI is, in fact, worthless. Ask any military guy, since the gov’t insists on using it. The more buffed out you are the harder you fail. Calipers are the way to go.
Good column. The skeleton-thin look is incredibly non-sexy in my eyes.
Tacoma, what you said about class is partly true — although there’s a whole different side to it. The truth is that for the poor, fattening, fried and greasy foods are cheapest and the most convenient things to eat.
I’ll never forget living in a poor, mainly Hispanic neighborhood in SoCal — where mothers used to take their kids to KFC and Jack-in-the-Box night after night for dinner. Same when I lived in Puerto Rico, and pretty much the same selection of American fast food chains were ubiquitous down there — combined with their own native, grease-soaked foods like chicharrones, sold in little neighborhood colmados and bodegas. It’s no wonder young Latina women in the US are often overweight at a very early age.
But it’s not just poor Hispanics. People are eating all this gross fast food because American-style capitalism has yoked the average middle-class American into a fast-paced, stressful, overworked lives where we can barely duck out of the office for 30 minutes to grab lunch. Fast food has become the ONLY option that fits into our insane schedules, and with all that crap we eat comes extra pounds.
Think about your average fast food meal. Why is it always a SANDWICH? Whether it’s a hamburger or cold meats and cheese, it’s almost always stuffed inside a huge wad of starchy white American bread. Not to mention the fries and the soda.
This summer I was sitting in an outdoor cafe in Zurich, talking to a friend, and I mentioned that “American women have no waists anymore.” As I was talking, a gorgeous tall blonde with a killer figure was walking across the cafe, turned to me from about 5 meters away, and smiled in acknowledgment.
One reason why Roosh and so many others say that the girl on the left, in the Wii commercial, represents “American” women, while the girl on the right represents “European” women is that there is something to this stereotype.
I disagree with pegging the blonde on the right as stereotypically European only because you do see a lot of girls in the US with figures like that. To say otherwise would be to ignore reality. But usually they have the money or the time not to be found in a fast food restaurant everyday.
However, the obverse, the observation about the fat girl on the left epitomizing many American young women, is absolutely correct — because while she’s a definite American archetype, her type is exceedingly rare, almost to the point of being nonexistent, in Europe.
It’s a matter of socioeconomics and lifestyle. It actually has to do with the same reasons that CNN’s Lou Dobbs (love him or hate him), asks, “Why are American workers working longer and harder than Europeans?”
The answer is that for the past 25 years, the Republican Party (and many pro-corporate Democrats) have been pulverizing the American middle class into perfect corporate slaves — shredding the social contract and destroying job security — making us a population of nervous nellies who fear getting laid off if we make one mistake at work, or take 10 minutes longer for lunch than our cubicle-mates.
Paradoxically, while Europeans take a more relaxed attitude toward work, when the rubber of public policy hits the road of individual lifestyles, they get far more vacation time than we do, and end up living far healthier lifestyles — with better food, more time to rest, sleep, and recharge their batteries, much better access to healthcare, etc.
No wonder Europeans stereotypically look slimmer and healthier than Americans. No wonder European women can look both SLIM and CURVACEOUS at the same time — and don’t degenerate into the shapeless blobs that many American women become — like on Roosh’s T-shirt!
Joe T, keen observation, great post, I appreciate it.
Excellent post, as the first girls made me wanna be sick! but followed by chicks that would make a gay dude hard!
115303 Blog Verification…
This is late, but whatever.
Joe T. attempts to blame heartless capitalism for America’s problem with weight, but I would argue that America’s weight problem is based in our undying love for things that are cheap and easy. I, for instance, will go for 8 hours without eating if I’m at home and there is no pre-prepared food around. I will not cook anything more complicated than a can of soup or bag of microwave popcorn. If I eat a meal it’s because my husband has cooked or purchased one. Of course thanks to this awful diet I’m about 50 lbs overweight. I’m not confused as to how I went from being a 5’6″ 125 lb athlete to a 175 lb lardass. It’s called laziness. I have better things to do with my time than go to the gym, like eat and watch TV. If Joe T. and the rest of you guys who bemoan the weght-gain in American women can come up with a way to make food taste worse and exercise to require no effort then you’ll see a reversal. Otherwise, just prepare yourselves for the impending fattening of Europe and all their currently hot ladies.
lady bizness, your rationality on this subject should aid you in starting and keeping to a diet. but no one said it wouldn’t require any effort or self-discipline. you cannot have it both ways. as a believer in the self-evident wisdom of the free marketplace, you of all people should understand this. if you love your husband and don’t want to continue shitting all over his desires then you will push away from the snacky cakes and get up off the couch. if you choose to stuff your face then at least be aware of the consequences.
and they are not pretty.
I really liked this article. It gave me some new insights, and took some weight (no pun intended) off my shoulders as a straight guy who has been feeling the heat from women who believe men like myself to be the perpetrator of this societal ill.
It pisses me off how you assume a woman’s want of a lighter weight is always about a man. Ever stop to think that THEY want it for themselves? I am in no way pro-ana/mia or pro-anything that damages your health, but MY GOD get off your high horse! Women are not here for man’s pleasure nor for them to look at. Sure, they do and we look at men. But that doesn’t mean that every single thing a woman does is so she can catch a mate!
Women like you make me sick.
Wtf is so sad about chicks being skinny!? if you don’t like em then don’t fuck em. If a girl is healthy and chooses to be skinny then good for her. My favorite is skinny with big tits. I like skinny girls…I like athletic girls…I don’t like fat girls. But i don’t say “oh…it’s so sad that that girl is fat” Stop judging people. Like what you like and who cares about what other people like or choose to be.
Lindsay Lohan was hot before she got skinny…now she looks like a coke whore and is not attractive.
Brittany Spears used to be hot…now she is fat…do I care??? NO. She is no longer attractive…so what.
America could use some incentive to become skinny…look how fucking fat we are!!!
i wish i was one of them. they are beautiful. i wish i was. im so fat i weight like 6stone 5lb. i hate myself
I own a gun…you may borrow it if you’d like
Men always speaking in a way that they think pertains to all people…EGO is so hilarious. So lets switch this up and say, “whats up with men that eat so much they have guts?” We women dont like that we want you to look like a pro soccer stud i.e. David Beckham. DONT BLAME US! we just saying what we want! Stop doing the manly man shit of bees and burgers and start eating some tuna fatass!
I like this post. I agree with it, but it bothers me when people are hatin’ on skinny people. I am 5’2 and weigh 90 pounds…on a good day. I eat more than most people, but I fight to keep the weight ON! It’s crazy, haha but you should know that there are a lot of skinny people who are naturally thin, NOT anorexic =] I look tiny, not sick. I think people are beautiful if they take care of themselves, whether they are naturally thin or naturally curvy =]
thanks for posting this. it needs to be said, things have gotten out of hand.
Thisn whole notion of “real women” is so stupid to me. From the super skinny to the super fat it’s all real. I know plenty of normal girls that eat and could give Alba a run for her money fitness wise. I think it’s important for women to be physically strong. Not skinny, not fat, but fit. Able to run, jump, kick, use their bodies the way they were intended.
Blaming the photographers makes no sense – the photogs are working for the agency or the designer – they don’t get any say in the models.
Blaming the gays doesn’t work either – I’m an artist and my wife is a musician so we hang with an artsy-fartsy crowd and have lots of gay male friends. And frankly, they don’t give a shit what chicks look like.
I say it’s the designers – they want to show off their clothes and if they could program a clothes rack to go down the catwalk they would. A skinny model is the next closest thing.
I prefer to hire curvy models for my work (http://www.pnart.com). In the entertainment world my idea of hotness is more like Beyonce or Kim Kardashian. My favorite rap song is “Baby Got Back”
Yea…because it’s TOTALLY impossible to be NATURALLY skinny, right?
I’m sorry that I have a fast metabolism and a naturally small bone structure. But you know..since I’m skinny I must be an anorexic drug addict that only eats once a month.
I really hate people sometimes. =(
yeah REAL men, because everyone wants a man from todays society instead of someone hot like robert pattinson of chace crawford
I have to agree with some of the previous posters. There’s not enough societal pressure on men to be attractive. If a chick looks smokin hot, girls give her dirty looks, thereby validating her thinness through their blatant jealousy.
If a dude is dead sexy, passing men don’t care and his buddies call him a gay pretty boy, ruining his masculine image. That means, it is okay for a man to be kind of tubby and their opinion is that women can just deal with it. Well, we’re kind of sick of tubby. At least I am.
Love real catwalk models ;-)
Hate the new goals for catwalk models… they have to be so FAT that they have a BMI on 18 it just plain crazy…
A catwalk models BMI should stay around 15 as it allways been…
No one wanna look at those fat models on the catwalk especialy not the brand names its those models who makes the cloth stad out as something special ;-)
I think those photos are photoshopped. I have two of those models looking thin, but luscious, in other pictures. One, Jessica Stand, dated the sex-crazed Red Hot Chilling Peppers singer. Most of these women do not look anorexic, they just look tall, lanky, small-muscled and pretty, with glowing skin. A friend of mine looks like this and I think she is gorgeous.
My phone editted. Excuse me. Stand –> Stam. Chilling–> Chilli.
So mean. I’m naturally thin. Stop hating skinn girls or fat girls, people by largely can’t help the way they look. If you eat, exercise, take care of yourself, what more can you do?
Netflix by now is aware of what flicks to ship to you, Pandora currently is aware what audio you are likely to like and Google already is aware of what your household desires for meal (and is displaying you an advertisement for the business appropriate now).
