My friend sent me a collection of photos of some fashion models. Rather thin models. Recently Spain has set up rules governing how thin the runway models may be for the fashion houses. Here is the article:
Sept. 10, 2006 — The organizers of Spain's fashion week in Madrid are rocking the fashion world after saying the standard for runway models is too skinny. Now, to walk on the Spanish catwalk, a model who is 5-feet-9-inches tall has to weigh at least 123 pounds.
In fashion centers such as New York, Paris and Milan, models have to be more than just thin to land on top runways. They have to be super thin. The average runway model is 5-feet-9-inches tall, and weighs just 110 pounds. [snip] Read more, link.
Interesting that Spain is so concerned about how skinny models are, yet approves gay marriage and abortion. (It is an in-trade decision - not legislative, yet it still shows the misplaced concerns of modern thought. Granted it is important to help women such as these, but the other blatant immorality endorsed by the West causes this voluntary starvation for money and fame to seem insignificant by comparison. Nevertheless, women subject themselves to all of this.)
When a woman is as thin as these women, fertlity is usually no longer an issue...
