Is anyone actually attracted to super-skinny (like anorexic) females? If not, why does the media continue to peddle it as the ideal body shape, and if so, I hate you, I don't like fapping to skeletons dammit.

It's not fun until I get bruises from slamming into her pelvis.

/not like being thinner will make British girls more attractive, anyway

Dear British (and all other) Parents,

Stop letting your 6 year old daughters look at crappy tabloid magazines where all they talk about is physical appearance and they won't care so much. Buy them a chemistry set, a softball mitt, a microscope or a tool set. Give them something else to care about. And furthermore, bullshiat. There have been social pressures on women to look a certain way, act a certain way, etc since before this current crop skinny girls made you feel "fat" and you transferred this insecurity on to your children. So break the farking cycle yourselves.

Sincerely,

Someone who finds many body shapes attractive

Maybe half of britain's 6 year old girls are fat?
 
2010-02-23 12:28:46 AM
I'm pretty sure more than half of America's 6 year old girls (or any demographic) genuinely need to be thinner. Maybe it's the same over there?
 
2010-02-23 12:30:33 AM
Real theory: Half or britain's six year old girls see how shockingly cruel the other half of britain's six year old girls are to the fatties, and don't want to have to ever live that way.

see, I make a distinction between porn star hot and girlfriend hot. I don't want to see girlfriend hot girls in my porn, and I don't want to date pornstar hot chicks.

But really most of these models in women's magazines don't qualify as either. Third world freeloader hot, I guess.

Six-year old British girls should have better role models.

See the thing is, the pollsters heard them wrong, crazy Brit accents and all. What they said was they want to "make dinner", a perfect attitude for later life

Hell-to-the-NO for me. I like some curves; a good set of boobs, shapely hips and a nice, round ass. If she's packin' an extra 10, 15 pounds or so over her "ideal" weight I don't consider her to be fat.

Anorexics are disgusting. I don't want to see your ribs poking out. I do, however, know a couple of guys who are attracted to that look, but I don't think most of us are.

They need less Amy Winehouse and more Kate Winslet. This is a nice body, and she ain't super-skinny:

If nothing else, this could be a good way to get them on the road to healthy eating and regular exercise.

I like my girls thin

i'm fine with saying that Kate Winslet is not super skinny, however she is thinner than 95% of women her age (in the US, likely britain too?), which in some people's eyes make her an evil skinny biatch

/jus' sayin'
 
2010-02-23 02:30:59 AM
Personally, I like petite girls. I like girls in their normal weight range. Not a big fan of big girls. Maybe it's because I'm a short guy?
Anyway, I'm sure the explanation; "Don't worry, each guy has his own individual fetishes you can work with." Isn't quite satisfactory for little girls...
This may be meaningless coming from a man, but like in America, it seems that in Britain the thing holding girls/women back from feeling good about themselves is... Other girls/women. Just an opinion.

Over in one & two, apparently...

Anyways, if female youth stopped having toys pushed onto them telling them they need to be thinner to be attractive and likable, this kind of shiat wouldn't be happening.

We have no one else to blame but ourselves as a collective society.

Umm, yes. They shouldn't be worrying about that at 6 years old. At their age being underweight is much more of a problem.

Not I. I dislike pelvic bruises. 'Ideal' for me is a nice C cup just enough padding to avoid getting poked by pointy bones. If I can count your ribs from 20 feet away, you're too damn skinny. When your muffin top starts to cover your belt, you're too damn fat.

This, this, this and farking THIS.

I was the fat girl in grade school and junior high. I legitimately threatened to kill myself in the fifth grade. The only reason I never had the balls to try it was that I was lucky enough to have amazing, loving parents whom I knew would be devastated if I had, and I couldn't bear putting them through that.

Every time I hear someone dismiss chronic bullying and hatred as "kids being kids", I want to drop-kick them. I'm 14 now and my self-esteem still hasn't quite recovered from how I was treated then -- not only from the abuse, but the implicit agreement of the adults who refused to do anything about it. (If Ellie says I'm so ugly I should live in the woods alone so no one will have to see me... and all the grownups are letting her say it... then they must think she's right.)

Teach your kids not to be bastards to other people. Please.

2010-02-23 03:18:33 AM
The mother of six-year-old Saffron Davis, who opted for the thinnest image, said the attention given to size zero models was responsible for making normal children overweight.

She told The Sun: "Saffron looks through my magazines and says her legs are fat. There is a worrying culture of girls thinking they're overweight from a very young age."


Hmmm. Mom, maybe if you'd quit letting your 6 year old gir read your fashion magazines that YOU are bringing into the house she wouldn't get this crap in her head.

I like women with a little meat on their bones. Of course, that's great because that's what I have at home.

I'll take some Anya any day of the week (Again, totally NSFW). Anorexia is disgusting, but thin is hot, especially when they still have an hourglass (minuteglass?) figure.

Agree with this, but needs this added in:

RainbeauxSue:

Even a child totally uninvolved with appearances will be affected by what their peers say.
