What’s Wrong With Women?

What is wrong with women? Women, not prepubescent boys with apricots stitched into the sunken chests. What, beyond misogyny and latent – we hope and pray – pedophilia, is behind the fashion industries hatred of women with curves and actual flesh upon their bones?

Thankfully, more people than me are beginning to ask this question. In the January 2012 issue of PLUS Model Magazine, plus-size model Katya Zharkova very honesty points out the issues.

Comparison Study - Real Woman v. Anorexic Model
Worse, The One Isn’t As Emaciated As Many

One cannot point out too strongly that the fashion and modeling industries have racked up a number of victims similar in form and number to the Nazis’ Holocaust. In case you dispute the number, I’ll point out that, in America alone, conservative estimates show that approximately 4,800,000 (4.8 million) women have suffered from or continue to suffer from anorexia or bulimia.

The Straight Skinny On Skinny Models

Katya Zharkova states several hard truths but I want to focus on one interrelated pair in particular:

  • Twenty years ago the average fashion model weighed 8% less than the average woman. Today, she weighs 23% less.
  • Ten years ago plus-size models averaged between size 12 and 18. Today the need for size diversity within the plus-size modeling industry continues to be questioned. The majority of plus-size models on agency boards are between a size 6 and 14, while the customers continue to express their dissatisfaction.

For the purposes of this particular point, let’s ignore that “plus size” starts at size 14, which is the average dress size of women in the West. Let’s instead think for a moment how pernicious and ridiculous it is to have the majory of plus size models being within a size range that tops out at size 14, the low end of the fashionistas call “plus size!”

That’s well beyond merely being stupid. It willingly enters the range of depraved indifference. As such, it should be considered “actionable” and, if the law will not- or cannot be allowed to act against the filth controlling the fashion industry, people need to step and take care of these filth themselves.

I firmly believe that making messy public examples out of some of the designers and buyers will get the point across to the industry.

This is not to say that some people haven’t recognized the problem but some have, though not nearly enough of them.

Fashion Victims

I’ve made a number of posts in the past about the fashion industry that ridiculed and lampooned their twisted ideas of female beauty. It is important to remember though that, while sarcasm and ridicule can be effective weapons, there are real victims of the of the fashion industry’s twisted, misogynist evil.

Should There Not Be A Harsh Reckoning?

The fashion industry, along with its co-conspirators in the weight loss industry, are the ones that have for decades promulgated an impossible beauty ideal and profited immensely off the resulting psychological damage caused to whole generations of women.

Young women like the ones in the images above are the true fashion victims and, while they need help and support more than anything else, their plight cries out for retributive justice.

Stripping these creatures running the fashion industry and dousing them with cocktail of DMSO, dichloromethane, phosphatidylcholine, and sodium deoxycholate sounds like a perfectly fitting punishment since it would destroy their skin, literally melt away their subcutaneous fat, cause extensive liver damage (Acute Hepatitis), and cause ocular nerve degeneration (Optic Neuropathy).

NOTE: DMSO and dichloromethane are each commonly available solvents. Phosphatidylcholine and sodium deoxycholate come pre-combined as a “fat melting injection,” Lipostabil.

It’d be something like a time lapse of anorexia with a few added “bonuses” that would make them better visual warning against others engaging in their behavior. The general loss of dexterity and ocular damage would also prevent them from doing further harm.

Sadly, not only would this form of retribution be illegal, it would be very difficult to carry out. As so often is the case in this sad and degenerate world, justice must bow down before pragmatism.
