(Think Progress)   For their upcoming cross-promotion with Disney, Barneys is turning Minnie Mouse into a 5'11", rail-thin model. Apparently some people have a problem with this   (thinkprogress.org) divider line 86

Ok I already don't love them turning Minnie Mouse into a stick figure, but why'd they also have to go and give her major biatchface to boot?

If people weren't so fat this would be a non issue. You people also need to let up on gay men for setting unrealistic expectations for women's bodies, because heterosexual men set some unrealistic expectations for women's bodies too.

Studies show that the only unrealistic expectation straight men have for women's bodies is that their spunk will be on them.

Those are just the opposite extreme of the unhealthy body type. I understand your dilemma though. When you're trying to defend something as indefensible as the skeletor look, you don't have much choice but to keep switching the subject to the other end of the spectrum.

Skeletor look? You might want to use google.

You are comparing a stylized cartoon mouse, with real people.

Just ignore her. She's completely farking insane and carries some sort of weird fatty-rage strawman into each of these threads. According to her, if you're not vociferously worshiping 200+ pound fatties, you're totally gay and only desire 82 pound walking corpses.

You can't argue with logic like that, you can only mock it.

And like clockwork, she's back to that scathing basement gag that was all the rage back in the 90's.

Well I can either assume you're a basement virgin, or consider the equally likely possibility that you're a schizo who not only sees imaginary fat women, he also argues with them:)

The sad truth is that the ideal model woman is only going to get thinner and thinner as the general population keeps getting fatter. Even if you took away all influences from fashion and media, you'd still have women striving for thinness. The poorest and least educated Americans are generally the fattest, therefore women of means will try to distance themselves from being associated with that.

Besides, the threat of anorexia is probably small beans compared to the obesity epidemic.

Just calling it like I see it. You sound like some screeching hosebeast who is absolutely furious that most men prefer fit, toned women to 200 pound tubs of goo. You do nothing but around here but whine about it and work yourself into a fit of laughably bad insults and strawman attacks.

If you're actually a dude partaking on this weird little crusade, you have some serious issues and should honestly seek professional help. Either way, get a new schtick and stop derailing entertainment tab threads with your weird fixation on basements, virgins, and skeletons.

Every time I see you post, this is all I can think of:

I bet you if you showed that skinny minnie mouse to some kid from a remote amazonian tribe, he'd never guess it was supposed to be a mouse in a 1,000 years.

Except what you 'see' is an endless line of fat women either in pictures or in the form of those you argue against:) Once you're exposed as mentally ill you forfeit the right to tell people what they should post. Get lost stupid.

The whole argument about it being gay men or women that are the problem always annoys me. Their sexuality or gender doesn't matter; companies promote these body types because they want women (and, increasingly, men) to try to achieve a look that's only possible for a small percentage of the population. Because they'll keep buying shiat to try to look that way anyway.

Most everyone can be fit and toned. Not everyone can safely be a size zero or negative sizes...or whatever the hell the fashion industries size as the lowest obtainable size. I'm a mesomorph and toned at a 6. I would probably die if i tried to get down to a zero and maintain it. Or be a just above death skeleton with my wide ass hips jutting out and stabbing people. Mothers need to tell their girls "look sweetie, just because she can do it, doesn't mean that you can or should". of course, girls don't listen to their mothers if they think their moms are fat.

The point is, someone with authority, somewhere needs to tell little girls / teenagers / grown ass women that it's ok to not see one's skeleton if they're wearing a bikini. And if clothes aren't designed to look good on women above a zero, then they're not worth wishing for or spending money on. Flatter your bodies, whatever the size.

That's not Minnie Mouse! It's Slenderman!

That being said, that is a horrible thing for impressionable young girls to be exposed to. Cartoon or not, it's not even a realistic body image, never mind an unhealthy one.

Wartime Consiglieri: NetOwl: Being thin is neither unreasonable nor unhealthy, but it does require putting down the cheeseburgers once in a while, and a lot of folks are uncomfortable with this.

There is nothing wrong with being thin, but being as thin as a runway model is unhealthy and unreasonable. And it definitely takes some unhealthy measures to get there. Do a google search for what these chicks have to do. I stopped reading at the part where they swallow cotton balls to fill their stomachs.



You must not ever browse snopes, or you would find out that sometimes what you Google is b.s.

Disney wants brand consistency. Minnie needs too look like all the other anorexic skanks that they push and promote in their tv line up.

I'm sure Micky's redesign will have him thin, androgynous, sporting bangs over his eyes...

/fark u Disney

It looks dreadful and not Disney at all. Those cartoons are for children, not for gay men out to make a name for themselves.

DrewCurtisJr: ZeroCorpse: If you really look at it, it looks like a standard supermodel's body with a mouse head. There's nothing else mouse-ish about that person in the image. No tail. Tiny human hands. Tiny human feet. Long human legs. Long human arms. Long human neck...

Ugh. The more I look, the more creeped out I get. If this is what fashion designers think is "appealing", then I understand why their dresses are all so ugly, and their models are all so sickly.


Anthropomorphism. Do you think Goofy has a dog's body?


Durrr. I know that. My point is that they took it further, to the point of her being barely Minnie Mouse at all. Disney's version-- also anthropomorphic-- has a tail, and big fat hands that are almost paw-like. Disney's version is clearly covered in black, short fur as a mouse might be (except for her face, of course, which is a weird choice but still makes some sense.)

The fashion model version is, from what I can see, all fleshy. No tail. No fur. No black patches at all... She has anglo fleshtone arms and neck... She's a human body with a distorted mouse head, which is not at all what Disney does with the character.

They took everything they could out of her that said "mouse" except for the ears and nose. She looks like a crack-addicted supermodel wearing an ugly mask.
