Today, I read an article on the stick-thin
models scrotums in the fashion industry. I was sickened by the attitude in the article, as fashion industry insiders (inside of what, I wonder) denied that the product they’re selling has any effect on girls and women in our society:
“Skinny models are an aesthetic issue as far as fashion is concerned. Models are thin so that one notices the clothes instead of the body inside,” says David Wolfe, creative director for New York-based Doneger Group, adding that’s why Marilyn Monroe was not a high-fashion model.
“Obesity is certainly a more prevalent problem in America than bulimia or anorexia, and nobody is suggesting that overweight young women are copying anybody.”
Tell that to the my fourth-grade daughter who, along with her friends, talks about how fat they all are and how they want to lose weight to look like “the popular girls” Ashley and Mary-Kate.
Somebody introduce this man to a Texas woman: He needs his ass kicked.
