Greg and DJ, I really agree with what you've been saying, I know a quite a few girls around my age who are dancers, and it's shocking to see a lot of them starving themselves to try and make themselves look like the image of "beauty" they see in all the magazines these days, which seems to be mostly anorexic models and lots of photo manipulation. it's sad to see girls who are already skinnier than average trying to make themselves even more so, they get sick all the time and lack energy all the time. It's natural for people to try and make themselves look better, but I think it's gotten pretty out of hand, people need to realize that being stick like is generally not a good thing!

Very true! If stick figures are constantly presented as the image of beautiful, it's natural that people, especially younger people, are going to attempt to emulate that. It fufills a very basic social need to be accepted and admired...but is based on a total lie.

Before PhotoShop...

A long time ago, I was married to a man who had worked as a photographer before I met him. Apparently most of his work was home sittings for cute babies and their proud parents, but he also managed to do some work in the "glamour" end of the business. Then, as now, "glamourous" models didn't always possess the desired dimensions........


.........the solution???

Duct Tape!!!

Take care, Margaret

That would be enough for me to want to lose weight so I wouldn't have to endure it the next time

Take care, Margaret

Surely no difference to this leg waxing business that women subject themselves to?

I knew a man who had quite a bit of body hair. He survived a crash of his private plane with non-life threatening injuries, but in the rush to stitch him back together, the emergency room staff applied a wide band of adhesive tape across his back.......


........he said the plane crash was not half as traumatic as the removal of all that tape.

Ouch!!!!

Take care Margaret
