Fat IN Society

              The average woman is a size sixteen. Are the models that wear the fashions of the future a sixteen? No, try a size two. If Barbie is a real woman today, she would have huge hips and watermelon sized breasts. One of the famous Hollywood start this century, Marilyn Monroe, wore a size sixteen. Many men found her a very sexy, appealing woman. That's not what the men of today are looking for in their future Mrs.
              When a man sees a woman, he wants a woman that is slim and trim, no extra fat on the hips. However, a woman's body is made to carry extra fat around the hip area in order to prepare her for childbirth. The male, however, when gaining a few extra pounds, holds it all around the waist- a huge health risk. The extra weight in the waistline, also commonly known as a breezily, can cause heart attacks. Yet, a woman does not look down upon a man with a few extra pounds, but a man does to a woman.
              The woman's body stores fat that she consumes, but a man's body breaks it up into muscle-not fat. Therefore, a woman has to watch everything she eats during the day because her metabolisum does not break everything up. A man will eat more than a woman, but his metabolism is able to break more down. If a woman and man were put on the same diet and carried out the same exercises, the man will lose more weight than the woman will.
              The message that the models are sending the women of this nation is that in order to be attractive-be a size two. However, to be a size two is unrealistic. Fat in anyone's diet needs to be monitored but the need for someone, the women of society, to be a size two is not realistic.

I totally agree with your paper. Only about 5% of women in America fit the "model look". It's a shame there's a double standard for the "sex appeal" of men and women, but we're also built different, so that puts odd restrictions and limits on what we can do and eat. It's a whole big mess with that. Weird.

I'd like to see a life-size plastic model of how a Barbie would look in real-human proportions! That'd be hillarious.

They've made them. Not realistic at all.
