SWM Needs Texas Woman for S.A.K.

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.

    I’ve found that if you treat your attitude about this as if it’s the norm (as in, don’t argue with her, just look at photos and exclaim, “Can you believe how thin she is? Disgusting”), it rubs off on your kids. My 11-year-old grew up with Britney, MK&A, and Lindsay Lohan (all of whom seemed normal at the time) and is now actively disgusted by all of them.

    It probably helps that I don’t own any fashion magazines. Why read about what I can’t afford anyway?

    Bring him on. I will sit on him until he gives. I have two teens and a 21 year old who moan about how fat they are constantly. None of them are.

    This is such a flawed argument in so many ways. I think the fashion guy who said it should be force fed like a goose.
