|This is a sad commentary on what is construed as beauty. The violation of oneself just for the bucks [$$$] is so tragic. But, then again, what does each of us do that "costs" us in the long run?
A real eye-opener.

|So sad that anyone would want to look like this picture, but more and more do. Excellent message Chanti, blessings, Holly|

|Nothing new, this has been practically a requirement for many, many years, so sad that this is the illusion we are suppose to believe is the correct image, isn't it? Great write...

|How about some skin with those bones ?!! She won't be a Victoria's Secret model anytime soon unless she IS the g-string :)
No laughing matter though, as we both know a few who have struggled with this condition. A stark and visual write Chants.

|And that sadly, is what our youngsters are following today, to their demise.
Sad for the Models that think they have to do this, sad for those who take notice and think stick is sexy.
Great expose here Chanti!!

|well done! sick - i worked in a girls school, body image at least gets discussed, but the pressure of continuous image bombardment gets to us all i think - some students of mine took the exact measurements of a Barbie doll and blew her up to life size proportions - the cardboard Barbie was a freak of size and proportion -a good exercise for them, makes me want to blow up the dolls for real! Stick insect women, preferably pre pubescent in appearance, hairless of course - it says not good things about the male eye/gaze...bring back 50's curves! Monroe for body image, modern financially independent women for mind, and my students would have spend less time starving themselves, or with fingers down their throats after lunch :( Nicky x|

A clear warning to not follow society's image of "perfection": it comes at great cost, endangering health, sanity, and yes, even lives. PEOPLE ARE DYING TO FIT THE MOLD. Sad. Well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|I think girls are looking to the wrong type of people for role "models"; they are too skinny for my liking. I didn't look that bad when I was at my sickest last year (okay, I did go down to a 100 pounds, but I was sick; I had an excuse! I have since put the weight back on and am feeling quite well!)! Sad society we are in when girls are made to idolize razor-thin waifs instead of accepting people of ALL body types!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :(

|Chanti~ Sad to say, YES! but they are learning to love themselves as they are. They are an example (role-model) to many growing girls! Very unhealthy to expel it up, later!

|If our society would just Model what is inside the heart,that is where true happiness lies, It would make for more to be content with who ever they are big or small.|

|Some are genetically slim, but thrusting one finger down the throat is a no no for health reasons.
Some wants to stay slim, and some genetically skinny want to put on weight. We always want what we don't have. I remember when I was a teenager I was only 80 pounds and was named "chicken legs" by many (that hurts), and I tried to take many types of medication and pills to try to make myself grow and put on weight. Money was spent, but result never happened.
I've only put the weight on after I got married.
The model in the picture is too skinny, much like the way I was when I was a teenager. I don't expect myself to look like that again, ever! Model or not model!

|Just like fesh paint washing off of a building in a rainstorm....
Everything is on the surface painted like a billboard, but, then, the glue lets go and the advertisement rolls up and falls to the ground. Well written and powerful. This was a great read...
My very best as always

|To most, the "normal" people, models of today resemble more like a skeleton with expensive clothes that a living creature.
Why they do it? because somebody paid big bucks, but far from the "ideal" woman any hot blooded male will have in his arms.
We are puking with her.(but not for the same reason)
