why is ideal beauty nowadays seen as being super thin? I mean, seriously, why do all guys like girls who look like they never hit puberty? ALL guys that I know dont like girls that have breasts bigger than B and have any sort of hips. seriously, is this only a german problem? or is this something that is in every western country's culture?

I want more WOMEN dammit!
not 10 year olds!


and yes I'm drunk at 5.30 pm

EDIT: I'm not saying all girls here look like this, but all girls and guys here seem to have the idea that women HAVE to look like supermodels. And I'm 19, dammit! why are all these 18-22 year olds still so caught up in the media's beauty idiocy?

Because people accept whatever they're told. Ideas of beauty are always changing through the ages, but clever men in suits figured out that if you make the idea of beauty one that's nearly impossible to attain, people will pay money to make it easier.

54% of women would rather be fat and gorgeous than skinny and plain.
And no, that's not a made up statistic.

The way he stated it. It was as if all girls look like this, and that's the norm, which is delusional and retard.

Props for being drunk at 5:30 mate! I was drunk at 4, tbh but each to his own.
I stand with you on this point though. Girls aren't supposed to be thin to the point of breaking. They're supposed to be curvy and voluptuous. All the girls I fancy at the moment are larger than average and that makes them perfect, in my opinion. Kudos to you for bringing this up. There is way too much emphasis on weight nowadays.

I'd rather sleep with fat chicks that can take a dick rather than sleep with gorgeous chicks that can't take it.



Now, in all seriousness, this is a problem worldwide and obviously its a very big female insecurity. While I dont advocate obesity, which is a very serious health issue and can lead to death, a bit of curves to a woman doesn't make her look bad, and if she's healthy then it makes me feel good because it gets me thinking, ok she's not constantly worrying about how she looks and she's never sick. Granted though, a well toned woman is never a bad thing you know. It all depends on what we prefer and what other people feel comfortable with.

Everyone is influenced by the media, not just these girls who think they need to be thin. You can't make a statement like that and direct it toward a single group of people, it doesn't work like that.

well where do they get the idea from that they need to be thin? from their parents? I doubt it. from their teachers? I doubt it. From movies, TV and peers? yup.

EDIT: everyone is influenced by the media, but in a different way. some people are influenced by the media to hate the things that the media endorses as normal, such as popular music and size 0 women. I fall under this category, but I admit that I have been influenced by the media in such a way as to hate the things they promote.

does that make sense?
#23
This isn't a huge problem with the girls I know. I mean, they're mostly self-conscious, but isn't everyone? There's nothing wrong with being concerned with how you look and trying to stay healthy. As long as these girls aren't anorexic or bulemic, I don't think it's a serious problem.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Yeah, so their mothers had absolutely no influence, not buying it. Media doesn't influence every single thing that is wrong, it's so cliche to say that it's the thing causing all the damage.

Partners if its a shallow relationship.
Parents because they want to live through her, or they might want to insult her at times when the relationship is tough. The rest is true, very true, even though its indirect most of the time, especially with movies and TV.

I cant believe a mother would go to her little daughter and say "you're getting to curvy, lose some weight so you can look like the models on tv"

but then again, maybe it's only my latino upbringing, maybe other families really do that?

Man, the Hot chicks thread has like 70% 12 year old boy looking girls and the rest are porn stars and actors.

Hispanic families barely do that, I would know, I'm Cuban . You should look at some "traditional" American families, there's a lot of inner turmoil and there's a lot of bullshit that goes on inside the household, that you wouldn't imagine.
