WHAT IS SEXY AND WHAT IS SKINNY
Is skinny and sexy one and the same?
I post a lot of pictures, some sexy, some may be deemed insensitive. Some that seems to make fun of obesity. I felt compelled to post this pic because to me this picture is a loaded. Representing a lot of things. Societal views on femininity, sexuality, etc. This is what a lot of people want, what a lot of girls want, what some guys want. A skinny chick. But to me she seems too skinny and shapeless. Almost like a skinny boy. But media and print like this is telling us, this is what our ideal is and that shapes us. I've heard my guy friends tell me the reason they like Asian girls is because they perceive them to be stick skinny, formless.
It reminds me of ads I've seen in the past where they hire young looking models and sort of shoot it in a way where it looks like kiddie porn. This kind of brought on a similar feeling. Like forbidden sexy or something.
If a large women has a waist the same size as her hips, shes deemed unattractive. If a skinny women has a waist same size as her hips, shes hot. But usually when the hip and waist are same size, that is classically a man's square build. But if she is large, you say she looks like a man. If she is skinny how come she doesn't look like a boy? A boy is a smaller version of a man right?
Yes it is not healthy to be too large. But being small doesn't necessarily define femininity either. And sometimes women try to get too small and risk their health.
Skinny looks good with clothes on. FIT LOOKS GREAT WITHOUT IT.
Just a thought. What are your thoughts?
