•I agree with Gisele
Bundchen and believe that there are “people born with the right genes for this profession.”
•Modeling is not just about how thin you are,
but also your facial beauty.
•If you are not a model,
or don’t look like one, trying to be skinny and getting bothered over the fact you don’t look
like a fashion model is a waste of time.
•A year back, the company Dove decided to promote
“real women” on runways and print ads.
•Fashion models ARE real men and women, so
that does not make any sense.
•Anorexia Nervosa is not
a problem in America, obesity is. Obesity is an EPIDEMIC—which means it is worse than
a mere “problem”.
•MORE THAN 60% OF
AMERICANS ARE OBESE AND THE STATISTICS CONTINUE TO RISE.
•Obesity cuts a person’s
life down by years, puts a person at high risk for diseases and cancers, and plus (no pun
intended) it costs more…from clothing to food.
•An excerpt from The
World Health Organization, “Obesity and overweight pose a major risk for chronic diseases,
including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain
forms of cancer” (Obesity).
•I believe there is more to life than eating
excessively. “Eat to live, don’t eat to live.”
•Millions of people
around the world are dying of hunger and starvation. Obese people not only depict greed and
gluttony, but is a mockery to those around the world dying.
•In fact, I highly
disagree with the skinny model ban. Sorry, but obese people SHOULD look up to thin models as an
ideal of beauty. Maybe it will slow or stop the terrible epidemic.
