Default Re: "For Fear Of . . . "

Let's stop lying to the women (+ men) of the world!

In our culture, slimmer *IS* better.

Men *DO* find slimmer women more attractive.

Store maniguins *ARE* all size 6 or lower, because (even) women find the sight of a "real" or "average" female form *LESS* attractive.

The arguement that this is all 'culturally iduced' is silly.

Of sourse it's 'culturally induced!' -- But so is using toilet paper (they don't in India), and eating with a knife and fork (they don't do that either, in India).

Eating cows and not dogs is also 'culturally induced."

So what?

That's just the way it is (in America, among white males).

Look at any list of 'most desirable women.' You'll immediately see that the ONLY THING they all have in common, is that they are ALL (without exception) THIN.


Thinner just plain *IS* more attractive.

No way around it (in our culture).

Culture is like the tide. When it wants to change (naturally), it will. It cannot be FORCED to change by outside, artificial means (like what they are trying to do in Spain). Won't work.

PS: Forcing the health issue won't work either. To bring this back to marketing -- it's all based on EMOTIONS. Men find slimmer women more attractive (in general), so women will do whatever it takes to make themselves more attractive to men -- health concerns b'damned. Similarly, women will NEVER stop wearing high heels. Just plain makes them look better -- EVEN THOUGH they are bad for you, health-wise.
