Curvy Girls In, Skinny Bitches Out!


 {“Curvy Girls In, Skinny Bitches Out!”} was nominated  Best Blog Post of 2010 on Skirt!  I thank you for your votes!

lips animation~~~~dedicated to K. whom always laughed at my blogs.  I love you U!       

   No.  NO.  No.  NO.

~~    Haven’t you received the memo, Bucko? Curvy girls are In and Skinny Bitches are OUT.  Sort of what Heidi Kleim says in Project Runway:  “In fashion—one day you’re in and the next day you’re out.” Only she says it better with the German accent.

Anyway, that’s neither here or there…

NOBODY wants to watch a skinny bitch with a skeletal torso strutting down the cat walk; nobody wants to observe ribs protruding and tummies sunk into the internal organs.  I think there are names for that:

  Heroin Addicts, Meth Heads, and Girls Who Eat Lettuce and Stuff Fingers Down Throats.

This is just WROOOOooooNG.

And another thing, we can’t stand a totalitarian telling us what we must like, or should like, or ESPECIALLY, what we lack. That is, unless you want your ass kicked to Timbuktu and back again.

     Don’t even open your mouth.

So what’s got me on my soap box today?  I’ll tell you, Sistahs, and you know I’m dying to.  What’s got my undies in a twist is that Ralph Lauren, whom I thought was professional and principled, fired one of his models because she does not fit his imaging any longer.

      “We consider her an important part of our imaging and branding,” the designer said in a statement to the media. “We regret that our relationship has ended as a result of her inability to meet the obligations under her contract with us.”

Her inability you dare say. What’s wrong, is she a size 5 now, Jerk face?  Obviously, this designer is NOT a woman.

The 23-year-old-model, has worked for Lauren since she’s been 15; she is 5’10 and 120 pounds which adds up to an ideal size 4 or 5.  Are you kidding me?  But I guess she’s not thin enough for Mr. Lauren.

     Leslie Goldman, a body image expert, told NBC News:The thought of this model being too fat is laughable. When you see her, she’s extremely tall and extremely thin. She has a perfect model’s body, but apparently not perfect enough.”

Here’s what inquiring minds want to know:  When will women be perfect enough, thin enough, good enough, and immaculate enough?  Seriously, if a model is getting fired for being too fat at a size 4, where does that leave the rest of us full figured gals, us Godiva loving chicks, us double dipper freaks? And more than that, what sort of message is this sending to our young girls, our unfortunate- body- image- obsessive girls?

     “There’s no question younger girls are getting this message, says Murnen, who has studied this for 15 years.” We have done studies of grade-school girls, and even in grade 1, girls think the culture is telling them that they should model themselves after celebrities who are svelte, beautiful and sexy.”—USA Today 

    Did she say SeeeeeXY?

Not only did Mr. Lauren and his shallow, one dimensional company fire Ms. Hamilton, but they also placed her head on this unnatural, grotesque body. And thank goodness, this is where Ms. Hamilton drew the line in the sand.A digitally altered Ralph Lauren advertisement of model Filippa Hamilton and on the catwalk in New York

   I saw my face on this super-extremely skinny girl, which is not me. It makes me sad. It makes me think that Ralph Lauren wants to have this kind of image. It’s an American brand … and it’s not healthy, and it’s not right.” 

     Helllllllllo, not right?  It’s a damn, destructive disgrace.

Um, does it make you kind of wonder why we have a country of bulimia, anorexia, hopelessness, and depression?  Does it make you wonder why we have a Prozac generation, a distorted self image generation, a generation that assumes they will NEVER be reach the point of flawlessness or approval?

Exuuuuuuuuuuuuse me, THERE IS NO SUCH THING as perfection, and quite honestly, imperfection is much more fascinating.

        Kate White, the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, said I think women have to protest, and back it up, because sometimes women say they want real girls on the covers, but often those magazines don’t rate as well, and if you put a heavy celebrity on the cover, it may not sell as well,” White said. “Women have to complain and then back it up with their actions — with their pocketbooks.

As the saying goes… “We can do so much more together than we can ever do apart.” 

Can we come together with our actions and pocketbooks? 

Will you buy this magazine? (Oh, yeah, that’s me, honey!

Or this magazine?

The magazine you chose could save lives.  If you don’t believe me, google bulimia and anorexia right now to get the stats.

   Last Note….  I loved this movie soooo much, please watch and  experience true Women’s Empowerment, my Sisters.

    You will get absolutely nothing but agreement from me my hot, and intelligent Italian friend. I have two grand-nieces struggling with the pressures of these very same destructive stereo-types. And it pains me deeply to see them talk about how “fat” they are, and how ugly they look without a perfect tan, etc. As a famous, but somewhat crazed woman once said, we need to STOP THE INSANITY ! Keep on blogging my literary friend.

    I ditto every single one of your sentiments. How on earth can anyone think that skeletal looks sexy? Or even good for that matter?!!! It’s an F’d up world we live in where we teach young girls that being skinny is the societal ideal. It’s just wrong. I’m plus-sized. Not proud of it and always hoping to get healthier and fit–but being a size 0, or even a size 5, is NEVER going to be my goal. I will always have curves, thank God.

      Be proud of your plus-size, Tina! At least you desire to get healthy. That is what matters.

      Keep rocking on, Sexy Sister. xx

    I love this blog! So glad I found it on The Lady Bloggers. I’m a fitness trainer, and some of my fittest clients are also my largest. People need to realize that fitness is not a size. If you’re eating right and exercising regularly (at least 3x/week) then whatever size your body is at is the right size for you.

    :)Thanks again.

    Love this post! I have stopped worrying about my weight – now I am just worried I am getting old. LOL! This clip was perfect. I have noticed lately – thinking about the weight thing – that everywhere I look there are women who have weight on them who are happy, talented and with great men. Not that you need a man to be complete – but I am noticing that men in real life are attracted to real women. It is lovely to see! Love your post as always. B

    First of all, CONGRATS on “Post of the Year,” Kim!

    Secondly, why do first-grade girls need to worry about being sexy? If anything, I think THAT’S where we should draw this so-called line.

    That Photoshopped picture of Ms. Hamilton makes her head look way too big for her body. She looks like a mutant from outer space, only pretty.

    I was bored with the Internet today, so I Googled “Jim Morrison quotes.” He said something that fits perfectly with the subject of this post: “He who controls the meda controls our minds.” For a wino, he was surprisingly observant.

    Until society totally revamps its priorities (namely sex, sexiness, sexuality, ‘how sexy are you?”) things just aren’t gonna change. In fact, they’re getting worse every day. The best thing we can do is teach our girls in the home, when they’re young, to value and respect themselves. And to demand the same value and respect from others, especially men.

    Great post, Kim. Love you!

    Tara

      I meant to write, “He who controls the MEDIA.” Sorry. 🙁

      I know you love him, because you wrote a lovely piece about him in one of your blogs. That, and you just have fabulous taste in artistry. It only made sense he would hold a special place in your heart. <3

    Kim: I’m so glad you visited my blog yesterday so I had the chance to come read this post.

    I work out — a lot. I do endurance athletics (swim/bike/run, baby) and I eat healthy. I can’t be some skinny little twit who’s nutrition can’t support her body’s functional needs. The gorgeous blonde REAL woman in the 1st magazine cover is who I want to look like. I want to be strong and healthy, and I want to be a partner, not a weight-obsessed freak who can’t enjoy life (including eating that yummy dessert together b/c it’s a joyful thing to do) with an imperfect person, because the man of my dreams is gorgeous, but he isn’t perfect either.

    SCRATCH THAT

    Actually, he is. Imperfect, like you said, is more interesting. Imperfect is the new perfect. I’ll take him just like he is, just as he takes me. And I’ll buy the first magazine cover you pictured. I do not buy magazines with pubescent anorexics on the covers.

    Wonderful post.
