And then there was the "kiss my fat ass" tirade (or would that be Tyrade) she did on her talk show when a tabloid published unflattering pics of her in a bathing suit.  Since then she had members of her audience put their weight and ages on their shirts and wear only their underwear.  I think she is just trying to make herself feel better.

Oh God, I saw that one. I agree, she is just trying to make herself feel better- and hopefully get the title of 'the saviour of the insecure' at the same time.

Sad, but true.  I think that being overweight in general is highly stigmatized in our society.

Something is not right when a women is made to feel unsecure for not having the body of a 12 year old boy. 

Personally I think being skinny is just as stigmatised. Skinny people are oppressed.  Its seen as acceptable to say to some one that they are skinny and need to eat more but its not ok to say to a fat person to stop eating so much. (Never mind the horrible, broad sweeping generalisations). It’s a big double standard. Obesity is going to be the death of the NHS if something is not done to help people get to healthy body weights, yet I think  a lot of distorted emphasis is placed on size zero and not enough is done on obesity.

Also at the moment any talkshows psychologist annoys that crap out of me.  Usually the just spout as much dime store psychology in 5 mins thats as useful as advice from a bad horoscope.  I can remember watching Sally Jesse and the psychologist there was shouting over a man (who could not forgive his dad's killer) that he had to forgive and by doing that he would be mostly healed, I mean wtf.

My Psychology professor from semesters past couldn't stand them (he singled out Dr. Phil in particular).  The thing is that something more in-depth is needed in major cases.

And why would a person absolutely need to forgive someone for killing someone close to them?

It's the idea that normal = five pounds soaking wet, yes?

That's the part that has to do with the fashion industry, yes.  But it's only really half the story...  Whambamcam touched on this too,  the idea of skinny being stigmatised as well.  There is a big "skinny is pretty!" thing going on, but also there's a lot of "god, she's so skinny, that can't possibly be healthy, she needs to eat a few cheeseburgers".  I know several petite ladies who are perfectly healthy and happy at insanely small sizes (their body structures are typically pretty delicate) and get the "eat a cheeseburger" type of pressure just as much as those of us built on a bit larger scale get the "why don't you look like Barbie" type of pressure.  I dislike both types equally; the best weight for any person is the weight at which they, personally, are healthy and content, and it irks me when society tries to put a number on the "ideal" weight and insist that everyone must aim for that. 

(Actually, it just irks me when society tries to tell a person how they should feel about their bodies, pretty much no matter what that judgement is.  But the whole reverse-Barbie thing is another rant entirely and I think I'm all ranted out for the night.)

I just remembered one that will beat them all:

Steven Cojocaru

I can't stand that walking stereotype and would have forgotten him if this wasn't the time of year where he comes from the sewer or wherever the hell he lives.  Like anyone (who has a life) cares what some overpaid, botox-filled celebrity wears to the Oscars.

Tyra Banks

Yeah, I didn't like Tyra before she did the whole Witchcraft episode. But after that, I absolutely abhor her!

Steven Cojocaru

I personally wish he'd go away and shut the F^$* up!  I mean, really. Who died and made him the celebrity know-it-all judge/god anyway?

As for the rest of the people I can't stand, it's not so much people as it is shows. Hmmm...sounds like a whole 'nother thread to me. Wink In a mo...

People, in no particular order:

1. Jerry Springer - I can't believe I used to enjoy watching his show. >.<
2. Dr. Phil - Shut up already!
3. Donald Trump - 'Nuf said.

4. Sports casters, especially for football - They're loud and annoying.
5. Calista Flockhart - IMO, she's irritating and annoying.
6. Ron Popeil - Who cares about your stupid product that you're hawking today?

That's all I can think of right now...I tend to mostly watch PBS anymore and I don't have cable, dish or satellite. Wink

Even I know it’s not healthy to see rib cages and protruding spines.

I've known some tiny girls whose spines protrude a little who eat like a horse.  Just because they're built to be tiny.

Although, I think you're supposed to be able to see a little rib cage regardless.

I think it really depends on the person. When my ribcage has been visible in the past, it's b/c I was scary underweight. Hasn't been visible atall for some while now... Wink

I'm not talking about a little bit of spine poking out, I've seen examples when you can see the segments of the spine.

Its normal to see ribs, its not normal to have your rib cage visible.  If thats the case then why dont we just go to some famine struck country, drape the people in designer labels and voila you cut down the high costs of models.

What's the difference?  I mean, if you can see ribs, surely you can see the outline of the ribcage...

I mean, I know what's unhealthy-looking on a dog, but it's harder to really be sure w/people.

Ok here are pics where ribs are visible where people in the pics are at healthy weights or borderline healthy:

<snip links for space>

IMO that second healthy/borderline one looks no better than the first unhealthy one, but point taken.

And in the Kate Moss pic, she looks really strung out.
