On a newschannel today was a story that the world of Runway Models is experiencing a problem within their midst called “dead models walking the runway.”  I made that up but the fact is according to the story that I saw on TV was that those models are so thin that many of them are either ill becoming ill and there are  between 3 - 6 who died in the past years from malnutrition.

When did thin, unhealthy looking and dark shadows under the eyes become the vision of health and sexiness.  Of course the reporters are stating what they‘re scripted to say but not one of them asked any of those people (the powers that be who employ these women) why do you hire young women who come to you looking as if they haven’t had a bite to eat in two years?  I know why because if you take a good look at some of those reporters themselves, and the women of Hollywood, so-called starlets, they are dying to be thin because this is how this industry functions.  This is the message that is sent out to young girls everyday in that being attractive and sexy and getting a boy’s attention is only possible if you look like you‘re days away from dying of starvation.

Young people today have a lot to live up to in how our society judge and view them.  It’s now wonder that many of them are split between either being thin or obese.  One exaggeration or the next.  

Who is to blame, them, or is it us?
