I'm very underweight (5-6, 115-120 lbs.), but not intentionally. I just have that body type.

It's one thing to naturally have that body type, it's another to aspire to it

I believe that Irvine should start a thread full of those photos.

Intelligence and height are still trump cards regardless of what fashion dictates.

However, it should be considered that in some cases, like myself, this is just how one looks. I would probably look similar to the one on the left.
Sure, I could go to the fitness studio every day to gain some muscles everywhere, but wouldn't I, in that way, not just fall victim to another perceived standard of how boys should look like?
My husband is pretty thin. He eats big portions, cycles everywhere, and is very fit, but he has lean muscle from sports like football rather than big muscles from weight training. It's nearly impossible to find clothes for him because he wears such a small size.

I've always preferred leaner men to really muscular types.

Do you believe that to be equally true for men and women, in general, in society at large?

I understand that some men are naturally thin, but how many of those male models are naturally that thin? Is it really just so that the clothes look better or is something else going on? I think the clothes look fine on a normal sized male and I would much rather look at that-not a boy. I never thought I'd see the day where male models have their thighs measured.

And it seems to be like it is for the female models, like avoiding adulthood. And that is actually one underlying reason behind anorexia

Quote:
In terms of image, the current preference is for beauty that is not fully evolved. “People are afraid to look over 21 or make any statement of what it means to be adult,” Ms. Cutrone said.
So now it's not only average or above average weight that is bad, it's adulthood of any sort. Those photos do look like some sort of child porn in a way
