Sexy Ribs?

Here is a screen shot from an article posted on the Las Vegas Sun web site on Monday.  It’s a picture of beauty contest winners.  Notice how skinny they are.  These girls aren’t just thin, they’re practically skeletal. 

Picking on the appearance of small women can be just as hurtful as insulting larger women, but I have to wonder if the physiques of the women in this picture are natural.  The one in the middle looks so anorexic that I’m honestly worried about her.  All five of them have their ribs sticking out quite prominently, but this poor lady almost looks like she’s sick. 

They won a beauty contest?  Their faces are all pretty, sure, but I can’t imagine how much punishment they must have put themselves through to emaciate their bodies so much.  Call me crazy, but my vision of female beauty includes curves, substance, and health.

  1. There are some who would say that men who are attracted to women shaped like the women in that photo are borderline pedophiles. I’ve heard it said by some feminists that these women have the bodies of pre-pubescent girls, no shape or curves to indicate they have transitioned into womanhood. Sad that this has become the standard of beauty in our society. Even sadder still that it has become a standard of health for some.
