Only worked for me in Firefox.

That's disgusting. Who in their right mind would consider that attractive. It's not even feminine.

Just showed that to Mr. LemonJuice. He was not impressed.

That isnt right. Its not normal to look like that.

How the hell are they even allowed to be models?! It's completely irresponsible! Jeez! I can't stop using exclamation marks!

It is a shame that people feel they need to abuse their bodies in such a way.. but then having said that some people make the same comments you guys have made here but about fat people instead and its not nice and doesnt help.

I don't necessarily think saying things like 'omg they shouldnt be a model' or 'omg that isnt normal' are really a nice comments whether they look anorexic or weigh 30 stone. I must say, I have had problems putting on weight for a few years, granted I am nowhere near as thin as they are, but I must addmit it does kinda make me feel inadequate when I hear women say things like 'I dont really like slim men' Basically saying that no matter how nice one maybe they will be judged on their physical attributes rather than their personal qualities. How many posts do we see on here with people saying 'I'm fat and ugly' Well sometimes the slim people are made to feel exactly the same.

Models are made to jump through hoops to get their photoshoots and all the modelling companies are worried about is success and if that means telling their models to look/become anorexic they do that. Its a sad situation because these poor girls and boys then follow it through.. but it just goes to show how badly they want the job. Some people cant believe I have to fork out £70,000 to become a pilot. There was a time when us trainees wouldnt have to do that, but now the airlines have us jumping through hoops just like the modelling business has these girls doing what they want them to. Plenty of occupations have people jumping through hoops nowadays, its just a shame that these girls have to risk their health for success. They need help and support to become better again and not made to feel repulsive.

I think extremes of weight should be avoided. Too skinny, too fat. Some people are naturally skinny just as some people are naturally heavy, but so long as you stay within the healthy limits, then it's ok. but these girls are NOT healthy.

It's sad they feel the need to do this to themselves, they look like concentration camp victims.

I can see what you're saying there Captain_Flynn... I moan that I'm too fat to my boyfriend but equally he could moan that he's too thin. That's the same for my Dad. Both of them are naturally thin people. I remember my Mum telling me that my Auntie had commented how skinny my Dad was when she last saw him. She's over-weight, and I think people sometimes forget that thin people can feel equally as insecure about being skinny as over-weight people feel about being large.

Yea I had some drunk guy telling me I "should eat more pies love"

Being skin and bone is not attractive and shouldn't be glamourised. Being skin and bones because of an illness is different to being skin and bones out of choice.

My dad for years was telling me I should put on weight (5'10 and around 10-10.5 stone - size 10), now I weigh around 11-11.5 stone and take a size 12 - my dad is now calling me a fatty - I know he doesn't mean it but it's still annoying.

Men say it too. However just because someone says I don't like slim men doesn't mean that if a slim man came down the street a vision of Mr. Perfect then they wouldn't change their mind. I don't like short men - my bf is short, shorter than me...I still don't like short men however I like him. I didn't dismiss him because he was short. It's the same as saying "I only like blondes" it doesn't mean to say if a great readhead came along, you'd look at them and say no!Admittedly some men and women would but these are the minority and idiots generally. I had an ex bf who wasn't happy dating me because I was too tall for him (he was 6'2) - it's the same principle!!!!
