They're not banning models who are size 0 just because they're that small. They're banning those with eating disorders. A healthy size 0 and an anorexic size 0 are two entirely different things, and you can tell who is starving themselves or not.
@Pizzazz, and someone with an eating disorder that makes them obese should be banned aslo
@Pizzazz, soooooo do we ban the obese people with eating disorders too?
@Abusive Breasts, yes. All sides should promote health.
@Jsteg, I never said I disagreed with that.
@Pizzazz, I heard the clinically obese are eating size 0.
@Jsteg, well if we weren't telling people with "skinny" eating disorders that their appearance was desirable and those with "fat" EDs that their appearance was disgusting, we wouldn't have the problem to begin with, basically.
@Pizzazz, and seriously- what do they consider clinically obese? Are they using BMI standards that are 100+ years out of date? Hip to waist ratios? Just plain "they look fat"? A body builder with less than 5% body fat is considered clinically obese by BMI standards
@SchroedingerPussPuss, well I would Google "plus size models" and see for yourself.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, plus sized models are any women size 14+.
@Pizzazz, they shouldn't ban any of it. It's their choice to make.
@Doctor Krieger, it's their chose but it's also the industries chose since they decide what is needed
@Doctor Krieger, enough people cried about it so they have to make changes.
@Yung Saltine Cracker, that's a gem
They don't use "obese" models. Plus size models are usually XL to XXL sizes and that is not necessarily obese. It is possible to have a large body and have healthy habits, friends.
@SpicyButtrcup, those are plus sized models. There's also obese models.
There are obese models? What are they modeling?
@HolyCatchphrase, yeah. I'm confused why everybody acts like ultra-fat models are even a thing
@Chimera Ant, I mean, there are plus-sized models but they're usually on a strict diet and exercise program to maintain a specific weight. Not to mention they're at most "overweight" and not obese and they're usually fit despite their full figure so that they don't get cellulite, poor skin, a floppy stomach, or other things that would plague the common overweight person. I've never seen an "obese" model except individuals modeling things on their own on the internet which isn't something that can be banned.
@HolyCatchphrase, skinny pills
@HolyCatchphrase, yeah. "Plus sized" women and "obese" are two very different things. I personally like women with a little bit of weight. Technically Kate Upton is a plus sized model because her large beasts push her shirt size just into the plus size range.
@HolyCatchphrase, they aren't even overweight a lot of time. Often they are fairly average, but they add padding in certain areas to keep a slim face while having a curvy figure
Clothes fit better if you got a little somethin somethin.
@Sweetdirt007, but then they don't fit if you eat WAY too much somethin somethin
I agree. If one unhealthy size is being banned ALL unhealthy sizes should be banned.
In todays world its ok to tell a girl she needs to eat but not ok to tell her she needs to stop stop.
@jacked the ripped, either is completely acceptable from someone who knows what they're talking about. If you know their lifestyle or are a healthcare professional, please advise someone if they're unhealthy. If you're just a random stranger your input is unhelpful.
@HolyCatchphrase, i dont give unsolicited advice but i can speak from experience and i am going into kinesiology. So i have strong opinions on the subject
Or, you know, you could just respect their individual liberties, as free people, and not ban any model? Just a thought.
Be proud of your body! Unless you're skinny... That's offensive. 😜
When was the last time you saw a clinically obese model
@bae, diet commercials
There are clinically obese models?
Are those even real?
@Awesomrrific, yes they're real.
