    I was at Target tonight, and saw the cover of People Magazine. The huge headline on front read "You call this fat?". It shows a pic of Tyra Banks(looking pretty hot...and definitely not "fat") right next to it.

    After seeing this, I was like "wtf, she's hot. How can anyone say she's fat?". It really makes you wonder what kind of messages mainstream media and fashion culture is sending to young people nowadays. Not just girls and women, but men too.

    If she's considered fat, then I must be a freakin whale.

    Here is a link to see the cover:

    This was just something that was going through my head. Just wanted to vent, I guess. Feel free to discuss if you want.

    I don't understand how she's considered fat. She still looks as though she has a flat stomach and curves in all the right places, so I have to seriously wonder about these fashion/Hollywood/not a good grip on reality types who criticize her for looking non-anorexic.

    She's hot. Everyone has their preferance in how a person looks. Some like'em thin, some like'em thick. I like the health look. No to thin, not big.

    fuck yes that's fat!

    my god, what a pig. I mean, you can't even see her organs through her skin! It just ain't sexy until you can hold the chick up to a light or candle and see her beating heart through her chest.

    I had a professor in college who wrote a few books on this subject. It's pretty scary.

    The way I see it, 1) the media needs to realize what they're portraying as "fat," 2) parents need to stop letting their 11 year old kids go on diets, and 3) women need to stop listening to all of these magazines that are making them forget how beautiful every one of them are.

    :lol 

    I knew someone would post a link to something like that.

    I mean, yeah, there are certainly ugly and fat chicks (in party hats). But women shouldn't let the media decide how ugly or fat they are.

    Tyra is hot but a bitch.

    And yes the media needs to stop enforcing the idea that a curvy attractive needs to be rail thin.

    I agree with Jux.

    and it's so fucking funny how the media will trash Tyra Banks for gaining 30 pounds (and looking hotter than ever I might add) and then turn right around and trash other celebrities for being too skinny and accuse them of being anorexic.

    Renee Zellweger is pretty weird-looking, ok? I've always thought the most normal she ever looked was when she put on weight for the Bridget Jones movies. Some women look good thin, some do not.

    Renee Zellweger looked HOT AS HELL in that movie, that's the only reason I'll watch it with my wife - to see Zellweger with that nice round butt and ample cleavage.

    Zellweger would look far more attractive if she didn't always look like she were crying or squinting out the sun.

    That's what they call fat?!?!?! Me I call that HOT AS HELL. That IMPO is a great body for a woman. Not too fat and not too skinny, unlike someone like oh I don't know Paris Hilton. Tyra actually enjoys a REAL meal instead of whatever it is she eats. Actually Tyra's going to be tackling this on Thursday's episode of her show.

    Funny though, I know guys go through this sort of thing too. But I've NEVER been able to asertain if it's to an equal, lesser or more extreme level. Although I have heard of Manorexia so it might be just at the same level as a woman. Just that the males don't get the same attention from the media
