and not one bit sexy. Whatever makes women think this is the way they should look? Who decided that skin stretched over bones is the paragon of feminine beauty?
I wrote a post - or maybe it was a comment to someone else - recently on the trend toward losing weight to the point of starvation. If I can find it, I'll post the link here.
A friend of mr. kenju's sent these pictures, plus a few more, in an email today. They sadden and disgust me. In my skinniest days, I never looked like this and if I had, I would have gone on an ice cream and cake diet! As it was, my mom tried to make me take "Weight-on"; a disgusting banana and cardboard flavored tablet designed to help you put pounds on quickly, and I was only 5 pounds underweight then.
How is it possible that these girls can look in the mirror or see photographs like these and think they look great?
I predict that the next big trend in modeling and fashion will be to parade the clothes down the runway on hangers. Why not? It would fill out and show off the clothing just as well as these girls do.
Your turn (with thanks and apologies to Carmi): What do you think of when you see these photos?
