Precisely.I think these ex-/pseudo-models "speaking out" find it easier to gain recognition through criticizing modeling standards than actually working to obtain or adhere to them. It's all self-promotion under the guise of "caring about women's health".
Me too! I know someone who looks soooooo similar to her if it wasn't for the accent I would have believed it to be her.I kept thinking "waste of face" for the second girl (Barbie).
Yeah this is true. I feel like the people really behind pushing this "models are too thin" agenda are the ones seeking out and employing failed models to help their cause.Precisely.
I had never heard of that Swedish model who basically has sex with nutella.
Edit - though I wonder if it is because they have the most power on the issue for publicity. If someone who never modelled discussed it people may say - what do they know? or accuse them of being jealous etc.
I'm not saying modelling is sex work at all but the objectification of your body relates to this -3) It really really bugs me that modeling as a career is now something to aspire to. There are so many job options out there.
Now that I'm reflecting, I agree with you a lot actually. I am really anti-sex work in general (but not anti-individual sex workers), but not because of women. I think that given the nature of our society, even if a few women feel safe and comfortable as prostitutes, porn stars, escorts, you name it, the vast majority are coerced to do so, underaged, or may even be enslaved (an estimated 70% of prostitutes world-wide are sex trafficked). Beyond that, even if a woman *wants* to do sex work, or finds it economical to do so, I always like to ask the question "why?" Why is it that in our society it is much easier for women to use sex, their appearance, their submissiveness, etc as way to succeed as opposed to their intellectual abilities, etc. Why is it that for women, sex and serving men are always the ways out? Just my two cents
I'm so about this. I think something that gets touched upon but is never well-articulated is that so many people have this categorical thinking, where if they're not a superskinny, they're practically obese. Where is everything in the middle?2) In real life, not all girls, especially young girls, are as educated as we are here nor have the resources that we have, so having a range of sizes (instead of HF and super plus size) likely would be beneficial. Not everyone wants to be super skinny so I am not against people feeling beautiful at "any" size (within a reasonable limit). The pursuit of beauty should be a positive thing that is done in self love, not a reason to punish yourself because you weren't born a certain way.
am i the only one who thinks her face is whatever? I've seen pics of her without makeup. not that she's ugly, but she is not anything special. wouldn't change my opinion even if she lost 60 lbs. i think.Me too! I know someone who looks soooooo similar to her if it wasn't for the accent I would have believed it to be her.
Her body is vomit inducing and she has somewhat of a pornstar look when she purses her lips out too far but damn is she beautiful. She will look incredible as she ages if she cares for her skin and doesn't stuff her face with surgery.
Edit - DONE!
