Again, we're talking about where the blame lies, based on shart's statement which BVS has continually quoted, and he has never addressed.

It's ridiculous to think that the media sets the standard. It's bullshit. The media reflects (and yes, sometimes) magnifies the standards set by THE PEOPLE. The media more reflects the times than sets them.

Ok, I can agree with you there. I was wrong saying the media sets the standard. I do believe it plays a huge factor, though, because it's the biggest communicator of the standard IMO.

What's wrong is THIS. http://www.ethelgranger.com/index.html

I wouldn't purport to tell anyone else whether something is worth debating or not, everyone has their own view, right? That's not what I was on about at all, though... it's not what the thread was about. I'm not saying it isn't worth discussing - of course it is, but... oh, never mind. *gives up on own thread*

This was never about thin vs fat. That's not what this has ever been about. It started out as extremes that women would put their bodies in to appeal to that culture.
Thank you!

Of the standard which we, as the people set.

Bingo. It's a lot like the chicken or the egg debate. You can't have one without the other. We feed off the media and the media feeds off of society and round and round we go.

Thank you!
No one on thos board will debate the fact that women shouldn't be doing things like that to their bodies.
