When Did This Become Hotter?
By Gunner Glam
There are women who were deemed truly attractive in the past although may not be considered beauty symbols today.
Studio Brow would like to share our take on how shock value has diminished over the last few decades.
For example Marilyn Monroe was a size 14 and today at best, she could hope to become a plus size model.
These days the desired size is a zero and “thinner the better” reigns supreme.
If people are naturally thin, then they should embrace their body size and shape. However, this trend has led to a generation of women for whom starvation is the norm and food has become the enemy.
Rather than something that nourishes the body and something that we can find pleasure in, far too many women live on calorie restrictive diets, mourning every single morsel that they ingest, for fear that it will add that one extra inch that will be too many.
Being thin has become so idealized, that it is suggested women need to lose weight before they start living their lives.
The best people can hope for in overweight bodies is to disappear quietly into the background, so as not to offend others with their presence.
These changing norms are not solely about progress, they are about about keeping women completely off balance and chasing an elusive dream. In turn helping feed the multi million dollar diet and exercise industry.
As soon as there is a new diet, there is a crazy rush to embrace it before it can be determined whether or not people will actually benefit from it.
Every new year, there is a rapid rise in gym memberships, as people promise that this is the year that they are finally going to get in shape.
Change can happen but most people regain the weight within five years plus a few additional pounds.
The idea that people should strive to be as healthy as possible, rather than struggle to squeeze oneself into a shape and size that is unnatural for them is not embraced these days because it would mean self contentment and a loss of revenue for the diet and exercise industry.
