Ok, so we have been set an essay at school, about a topic that the administrators think is relevant to teenage culture. I have to argue, whether or not i agree, that in this day and age Skinny Equals Successful using examples such as Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham, Gemma Ward, Miranda Kerr etc

does anyone have thoughts/suggestions on the matter?

cheers

Do you see any female famous millionaire movie stars that are overweight? No. I'd definitely say being skinny in necessary to be sucessful in the entertainment industry.

It used to be if you were successful you were bigger to show you can eat. Now its the more rib cage you show, the better you are.

I think it has to do with good looks though, and skinny isnt always a part of it..though they can't be really fat, just chubby.


actually, to contradict myself, there are plenty of fat actresses, they play the best friend.

but do you think you'd be more successful if you were fat?

its not a matter of successfulness, its more of being popular in the mass media.

there are very successful overwieght people, but they arent in the spotlight so ull never know about them

the only real way to be successful and obese is to be funny Ex. Jack Black

Back in the Renaissance and Midevial times, being fat was a sign of success. Tell them that.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

In girls, most definitely. In guys, not so much, but even still.

For the one episode of American Idol I have watched like 2 years ago, there was this INCREDIBLE singer, but they turned her down because of her weight. Im sorry, but thats such bull ****. This chick could sing the face off of anyone of those anorexic girls.

yeah, unfortunately skinny = succesful
BUT I don't think being skinny makes people be better than big people. just, more popular.

Being successful and being a celebrity are totally different.

And besides, Jaba the Hutt was the man. He was fat. And equal to George Lucas' idea of a dragon.

Those are all token fat people, used by the media to avoid lawsuits from the NAAFP (National Association for the Advancement of Fat People).

It's true. I HATE when people complain that they're skinny.

As for the point, I disagree. Calling the Hollywood successfuls "skinny" is a disgusting disgrace to skinny people. You have to be starving and suffering to be successful. How can ANYONE find these people attractive?

i, for one, get weird looks when i go out for meals because i am skinny and people expect me to not eat or something. i eat when im hungry, do no exercise, i just happen to have a fast metabolism and a small body type.

you have never been as skinny as me. honestly, its more acceptable to people to make fun of skinniness than fat. also it is easier to lose weight for a person like me, than losing.

its not socially acceptable to go up to some random in the street or the mall or whatever and go, wow, you're really fat. Perhaps you should diet?

so why is it socially acceptable to go up to some random in the street or the mall or whatever and go, wow, eat something you anorexic b*tch

And what eating disorder does someone get from being called to skinny? Excuse me?

Please, find something besides weight to bitch about because in some countries people don't get a choice to be skinny. They starve.

eating disorders can start with the smallest things, especially being singled out about your weight.
do some research before you get up on your high horse

if you'd actually read the first post you'll notice i said its for an assignment, and i have to argue it whether i agree or not.

now would you like a hand to get down off your soapbox?

1. So, because someone calls you too skinny you are going to become bulimic? That makes sense...
2. The assignment is complete bull**** because if it was "argue" you could take either side.
3. ???
