I've got some tissues they could eat. They need the extra calories.

A friend of mine in high school did that. She was checked into the hospital at 5'9" 104lbs.

Her parents were in denial.

In all seriousness....   when will this shiat stop?  Bones are not attractive. I like skiiny chicks, about as much as the rest of us gus that complain about 'sharp knees', but these biatches are disgusting.  They have serious mental problems.  I never though i'd say this, but can't the government get involved?

No, I think you'd be hard pressed to make a case that skeletor body frames are best for showing off clothes (please, if you have such an argument, have at it.  I just doubt that one exists).

It's a group of professionals that are aspiring to an extreme.  It's no different than my ever growing and ridiculous collection of programming books, for them the industry favors the ridiculously skinny so the bar of skinny keeps being raised.  Skinny doesn't help them in any objective sense for showing off clothing, but they do use it as an easy to gauge metric.  Just as for me having more books doesn't inherently make me better at my job, but it's an easy metric to gauge my interest in programming.

This is an old trick.  Actresses and models have been using it for decades, bodybuilders and fitness models have more recently adopted the technique.

How do you think actresses maintain sub-15% body fat?  They're all drinking 'health cocktails' of bulk fillers and flavours.  Hell, here's a 2010 article on the matter:

Skinny models make it objectively easier to design clothing.  Most people have much less variance on the gross dimensions of their skeleton compared to their musculature and fat - every woman who starves herself down to essential body fat will have a roughly 22" waist.  From there, you can add breast implants (at essential fat, the breasts will be A-cups, maaaybe B-cups in unusual people) for more standardized body sizing.  That's what model scouts are looking for - an approximately correct skeletal structure so you can take the clothing off the figure and put it right on the model (and know that it will fit!)  Clothes are made well before the models are hired for the show, so you need models that can wear any number of outfits.

It's not right, it's gross, but that's why they do it.

That's an argument for a standardized range of measurements and ratios of measurements, not an argument for the thinnest possible model.  They are no more objectively easier to design clothing for than a 5 foot tall 300 pound standard.

I don't think there's any one explanation.

Take, for example, the role Barbies play in defining what little girls understand to be beautiful. A traditional Barbie physique would be impossible to find in nature. That woman who had all of that plastic surgery didn't even get close. The proportions cannot be brought accurately to scale.

I briefly dated a guy who said he didn't like really skinny women. He preferred Olivia Munn. She gets paid to be thin. That's part of her career. She works out more than 8 hours and week to maintain that.

The industry also does it - modeling issue exceptionally competitive. Anything that they can do to reduce the number of eligible models becomes justified.

Here`s an idea: for every attractive and white well to do woman who is starving herself just to put on some clothes, she is forced to pay the money she would ordinary budget for food and send them to third-world kids. I`m tired of people making a mockery out of western society.

You can tell the dedicated models from the ones that will never hack it by their choice of tissues. The models with no willpower often hang out by the aloe-infused tissues. They'll sneak them when nobody's looking. This pathetic lack of self-control is a sure way to tell which models aren't "team players" and should therefore be shown the door.

No one gives kids enough credit for not being farking morons. As a kid I never thought Barbie was anything other than a ridiculously elongated piece of plastic. It's adults that go back and blame Barbie for making girls want to be skinny because of "impossible proportions", after assuming idiocy from kids that they don't really possess.

Kids might come away with the general idea that blonde is supposed to be beautiful, that white and thin is supposed to be beautiful, but the exact proportions are beside the point. Even if she had the actual proportions of a skinny model, it wouldn't make a whit of difference. People would just have to stop saying "her proportions are impossible!" every five minutes.

I used to read a model's blog and she constantly mentioned bulimia and anorexia among her coworkers pretty much the same way people would talk about how some dude in the office farts a lot or someone else wears too much cologne. It had become just normal everyday stuff to her.

A good question is where are the feminists in all this!? Where are the groups that are always up in arms about some war on women? Does this not even register?

How about taking on an industry that drives young girls barely even in their 20s to engage in extremely unhealthy practices to the point some have even died, not to mention the effect it has on millions of young and impressionable girls who are growing up believing a starved skeletor is the ultimate in feminine beauty? Is it because the men involved in that industry are mostly not straight and therefore less "evil"? I honesty don't get it.

Not only that, it's easier to take a photo that looks good of a skinny person. It's easier to light, using direct light which minimizes the pores, and using bone structure and makeup to get form in the face. With fat people, you have to light differently, and the skin doesn't look as good. Plus you have to worry about fat rolls showing up if the model moves, clothes bunching awkwardly, etc.

Okay, so now we have an argument against being at the other end of the spectrum, still not an affirmative argument for why 'as skinny as possible' is objectively better.

I sincerely doubt that a person with enough body fat to not be considered dangerously underweight is detrimental to the lighting and makeup effects on photography.  It may require *different* considerations, but that doesn't mean that they are objectively worse.

If you don't think feminists are up in arms about this industry, you're not looking for them very well.

More importantly, everyone in this thread who says "Super skinny chicks aren't hot!  This is hot!" and go on to post pictures of hot women, you're not exactly helping in whatever body image battle you're talking about.

Not that I mind the hot women.  Just... pictures of similarly unattainable bodies with a little more weight on them don't do much.

On most issues feminists care about, you don't have to look for them too well to notice them. They're so active and vocal it's almost impossible to miss. This one doesn't even come close.
