I was just browsing Facebook, and came across this article I wrote in 2011, before I had a blog, after noticing the sizeism trend on that site ~ by which I mean so-called 'curvy' women being extremely rude about slim ones, and, more worrying, relating their comments to what men prefer.
This is the picture mentioned at the beginning of the article - I just looked for it on google images
The link is HERE if you would like to read it; I've just made it public so that you can read it if you're not a Facebook friend (my profile is set to private). Please let me know if you can't access it, it should be okay. Thanks!
ps, I've just found the Marilyn Monroe - thin girl one, too, though looking at it now I would imagine she is obsessive about working out rather than anorexic. Oh, and incidentally ~ a Twitter friend told me that she went to an exhibition of Marilyn's clothes once, and they were tiny. She was only ever a size 16 occasionally; I read once that all her costumes had to be made in sizes 10-16 because her eating was so erratic. Let us not forget that a size 10 in the 1950s would probably be a size 6 or 8 now.
