Models aren’t known for having a voice. We’re supposed to be silent images… stick images. Sick sticks. But we make a lot of money when most of our friends are still sitting in study hall. So, it’s worth it.
The model above is angry about having to starve to fit a size zero. She is part of an organization called Femen who’s concerned about the minds of the young and impressionable. She and two model pals decided to storm the Versace show bare chested with war paint. Epic.
The timing is perfect as American National Eating Disorder Awareness week begins in a few days. Woot woot! Time to pay attention to how we treat our bodies and what good excuses are permit-able to abuse ourselves for the sake of fashion.
Fear not… excuses to abuse ourselves need not be invented. Abuse to women’s bodies ended a long time ago. Women are no longer expected to maintain an abnormally thin physique to be considered desirable in society today. We are all allowed to comfortably allow our bodies to age gracefully with no concern of losing the game of life because of it, much like our male counterparts. hahahahahaaaaa…
Whenever I think of how a male would look if he were expected to look how women are expected to look, I think of Christian Bale in The Machinist. Tre’ Sexy don’t you think?
Not quite as thin as this model, but close enough.
Back to the protest that happened. These girls, these models, were upset about the standards they are expected to live up to and how those images affect other women. Gorgeous girls, an on point relevant message, war paint, and nakedness. I don’t know, kind of a good idea don’t you think? They got my attention.
No, seriously, those three models are too short and too fat to model for, say, Versace. Yep, the standard is that bad …or good. I do suppose that standard teaches young girls a certain level of professionalism. Starving is a major part of the job description and models do get paid well. Right?
