    I'm not angry. I'm confused.

    On the one hand, the way these girls look is not their fault, so we shouldn't criticize them. But then it's ok to say that they're abnormal, extreme, etc. Clearly different. But don't criticize.

    But we should criticize the industry & the designers for hiring these girls.

    So if there's no reason to criticize the girls' appearances, why should we criticize the industry for using them?

    Who says it's not okay? I never said it wasn't okay. Morbidly obese people ARE fat. Calling it something else because you don't want to be "mean" doesn't change the situation or make it any better. And when and if I see morbidly obese chicks on the runway, I'm sure I'll be grossed out as well.

    I personally could give two shits about the coolness factor of it. I'm just calling it as I see it. It looks gross and abnormal and extreme and not at all sexy.

I would suggest a youthful metabolism...but clearly you are the expert.
    These aren't 15 year old boys, hon. And not all 15 year old boys could do that, FYI. Though it's fair to say that a growing 15 year old male eating this way does have a significantly less chance of obesity than any other demographic group. You're probably no more of a doctor or nutritionist than I am, I'll wager.

    I don't consider that you posed an "altererior" side to anything. I just think you're taking things way too personally. If these girls don't want to be judged on their looks, they couldn't have picked a worse profession. If all these girls are so extremely skinny naturally and often times look physically ill in spite of eating things that would make most people average weight to obese, or at least suffer with little to no nutritional deficiencies, then why do we hear about...in connection with modeling and the higher the level the greater amount....girls collapsing on stage and off? Osteoporosis? Organ failure? Death? Eating disorders? Drug problems? Last time I checked, things like this weren't occurring in large numbers amongst the Big Mac eating crowd of teens and 20somethings.

    Most likely, that skinny girl from a shitty place in Russia is now raking it in hand-over-fist and doesn't give two shits what someone like me has to say about them anyway. These chicks wouldn't piss on me if I were on fire, probably (not that they'd be hydrated enough to put one out with their piss ). And you know what? I don't care. It's their health, not mine. But it's funny how it's primarily the wannabes, neverweres and neverwillbes who don't have the money, fame and retinues of people calling them "fabulous" regardless of how bizarre they look or the state of their health who seem to get bothered by all us meanies judging "them".

    It's not. You're just offended that someone doesn't agree with you entirely.

    There ia a link to a New York Post article about this. I'm really not making this up.

    For the past few years designers have being using Eastern European models for various reasons, and one was that they are cheaper compared to the likes of Noami Campbell.

    IMO it has become the lastest trend to use Eastern European girls. Awhile ago there was a documentary film by a European Agency called 'Searching Siberia' that reveals how scouts visit remote towns to find the next top model.
