When I got online today, my first page is usually MSN.com and MSN has this part of the page where they show the latest news and everything right? Well when I saw this title I was interested, the title is 'Size 4 Model: I was Fired for being too fat.' Then I read it and was like :0 *gasp* WTF? The Model is Filipa Hamilton (picture to the right), former Ralph Lauren model, is 5'10 and 120 pounds and they think she is too fat. Too fat?! You have got to be kidding me. The freaking modeling industry are sending a bad message to girls all around the world.
It says in the article that at first Miss. Hamilton wasn't going to do anything about it, not until she saw this incredibly offensive, not to mention totally false Photoshopped, image of her in a mall in Japan that showed up on the Internet site BoingBoing.com. The Image is horrible, and not good Photoshop work for that matter.
And of course, Ralph Lauren denies they fired her for being too fat, but if you read closely they are just trying not to get sued. They put pretty wordings and all but you guys know how the model industry is these days, the dresses keep getting smaller and smaller, and with them their models. They want girls like Kate Moss (to the left) now, not that she is not beautiful but you get the image. I am not discriminating against skinny girls, by no means, I am just saying that the requirement to be less than 120 is a crazy thought. It is just not healthy in any way, physically or psychologically. What is a girl to think? That THAT is the desired image? By no means girls. Do not listen to them, you are beautiful in any weight you desire to be, or are. Fuck them and their skinny vicious cycle.
