Bust: Levelled

They weren't that big to begin with and you had to raze them?

I hope to god there are some great photoshops posted when I check back on this in the morning.

But they still hire the models that need this done.  I will never understand.

/ sammiches... eat them.

I'd give Cameron a 6 inch Hogie.

Another site co-opting the BuzzFeed headline format.

Well, that was unexpected.

Course, what are the odds that they're being Photoshopped to look less bony, and at the same time, being told to lose more weight?

See, you're supposed to be really, really thin. But there's really no need to show that disgusting skeletal structure.

I'm starting to get numb to all this models-are-too-skinny noise.

Of course, this story is brought to you by the fat girl at HuffPo

This is because the gay males who control the fashion industry are aging and getting wide around the waists.

The girl in the beginning of the video should give them some sammiches since it looks like she has a lot of them.
 
2014-01-09 07:22:52 AM
Meh. They used to smallen the skin, now they smallen the bones, too.

The video girl is a little biatchunky, but she's cute.  I'd help her burn some calories.

lol.  Thought I heard a while ago about models who were already so thin that in order to lose more weight were having some ribs removed.  Probably urban legends but I am too lazy to google it because people are weird.

Kill me.


The heavy overuse of the same words in the headline is irritating, but I've personally grown so numb to the "Mystery headline" format (essentially, "You'll be Shocked at What this Person Did, and You'll Have to Click Here and Read to Find Out) that I've just quit caring, since it's usually not worth reading. I think everyone else will eventually follow suit.

I rarely click on Huffpo links anymore, and never on Buzzfeed. I waste enough time here without polluting my brain with that shiat. There's a couple of others too......with everything that is on the internet, why do I need to look at trash sites?

There you go. I bet they said that about Cleopatra...

FSS, would any of you even be aware of fashion magazines or of skinny models, if someone hadn't drummed up some fake outrage some years ago, made some fake pictures, and started posting OUTRAGE all over the internet? You guys sitting around reading Vogue and Mademoiselle all of a sudden because of your concern? You all have a huge interest in the fate of fashion models, most of whom make more than you'll make in 10 years?

Christ, get a life. And stop looking at femi-nazi blogs so that you can make up more fake issues about how men are so, so oppressed by EVERY SINGLE WOMAN IN THE WORLD. Fark, at least I confine my outrage to things to actually affect me. You guys go looking for things to fight about, when your real concern is that a woman might decide to lose so much weight that you might not want to stick your dick in her.

It's the same old bullshiat, just in reverse.

Stop using shoots where the models look gaunt. Just stop. Get healthy looking models, and if you have to 'shop them, then you just have to shop out blemishes. And hey, that just might do wonders for the self-images of people who would no longer be comparing themselves to what amounts to very life-like looking cartoon characters.

The legend dates back to Victorian times, when wearing tight-laced corsets was the rage.  There is no historical evidence to support the practice.

I've worked with a lot of models.  Only a handful of them earn that kind of money.   The majority of agency-signed, nationally-published models have to have second jobs and do freelance work just to make ends meet.  Either that or they have sugar daddies.

Per the Bureau of Labor Statistics,  median pay for models is $18,750 per annum or $9.02/hr.
