Size 12 is Too Big

Here's an example of the insane standards of "beauty". Top picture is the beauty contestant that is "too large" and the BOTTOM picture is the model that was considered to be ideal. This story is a true story from the DAILY MAIL, in Great Britain. Link to this story by clicking on today's title, Size 12 is Too Big. Here's a quick overview for you:

Poured into a gold swimsuit, Make Me A Supermodel winner Jen Hunter looks as if this outfit was custom-made for her.

But the one-piece triggered a furious row about stick-thin models when her rival finalist Marianne Berglund appeared painfully underweight in the same attire.

Jen Hunter, age 24, is a contestant on a British Reality TV show. She's a healthy size 12 and was reduced to tears by judges, who gave her harsh words because she "wasn't taking the exercise and diet program seriously". Can you believe this! If this isn't just a snapshot of how sick and twisted things are....I don't know what is. Talk to me people.

Completely sickening. Seriously!

I am always appalled by the standard of "Beauty" that society holds to women. I'm sorry...but I would rather be a size 12 than walk around showing my ribs and hip bones all the time. THAT should be considered indecent exposure.

Keep in mind that a British size 12 is an American size 10!

And do you know what's the worst? It's not really even an American 10 - it's more like a six or eight! I went in college at 125 lbs, and 12s were the smallest I could wear!

Sad... I am about to have a girl, and I am bringing her up in this sick sick world on how people look at what beauty is. :-(

Jen Hunter looks sexy and beautiful. The other gal belongs on TV next to a tearful Sally Struthers ("Please send your money so this poor starving child can eat.")

The sad thing is that a lot of women wish they were stick-thin because the media has convinced them that it's sexier, but any normal guy you ask would probably prefer beautiful and curvy over painfully bony.

Had to delurk and give my two cents on this one. Hi!

The girl in the top picture is too big? I don't think so! She looks strong and healthy and is absolutely beautiful. The girl in the bottom photo looks like she has some horrible wasting disease. I want to feed her cookies. Or anything, really. She looks like she hasn't eaten in weeks.

Oh my goodness Lordy mercy!

Somebodder give both a'them gals a big ol' mess of chickin 'n' dumplins, collard greens an' ham hocks and some cornbread made with lard -- give the gal on the bottom some extry lard to spread on her cornbread. Feed it to 'em every day for a couple weeks an' if that don't help git 'em healthy again, then Miss Trailer Trash aint the Hager Twins' #1 fan.

Even though I am a small thin person and people have said that I am too thin I get tired of hearing people commenting on weight and size.
Although I like being thin, sometimes I think we as a society are too obsessed with it.

Woman on top is too big. Woman on bottom is emaciated.

BTW, woman on top would be a size 8 in most US brands because companies are so sensitive to consumer's inflated self-esteem.

Does YOUR family have what it takes to compete in a hilarious, outrageous new reality game show?

A major cable network, the award-winning production company that brought you Big Brother, Fly on the Wall Entertainment, and MysticArt Pictures are now casting nationwide!

Is your family larger than life, ultra competitive, unpredictable, really entertaining, and far from harmonious at family holidays?

Do fights break out? Who causes them?


Now seeking families of at least 5 people, including wild siblings, eccentric uncles, doting grandmothers, competitive cousins, and the in-laws, anyone in your extended family 18 or older, who is ready to go head to head for the family's chance to win up to $25,000!
