@sanibelly: Oh no, I think the fashion industry couldn't give two shits what I look like. If you re-read what I wrote above (in my usual mangled, awkwardly constructed prose), you'll see that what I was actually trying to say is that the Fashion Industrial Complex wants me to yearn to be that thin. It's not the actuality of my thinness that is desired, it's my constant insecurity that they're after.

Is it malicious or consciously cruel? Nah, I don't think so. I really hope not. It's just how people sell shit. I didn't know my armpits needed moisturising until Dove told me their deodorant could fix that. Vogue, in its convoluted way, wants me insecure. When I'm insecure, I spend money. Quite possibly, I spend money at those excellent companies that advertise in the pages of their fine publication.

Hyper-thinness won't always be in. Soon enough, the pendulum will swing, and we'll all go off chasing some new ideals of attractiveness. Such is modern life, I suppose. But I think it's extremely important to tell kids in all kinds of ways that they're pretty awesome just as they are. And their armpits will be just fine whether they use Dove deodorant or not.
