One thing that I definitely feel the need to discuss on this blog post is models. Victoria Secret models, Abercrombie and Fitch, and NFL cheerleaders. The Cowboy cheerleaders for example: "Even returning veterans aren’t a shoe-in to make the squad of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Mouthing off, gaining weight and lackadaisical technique were all cited by Kelli Finglass and Judy Trammell on last night’s DCC: MAKING THE TEAM."
The NFL's Dallas Cowboys football team has their own set of rules for cheerleaders. There is even a T.V. show based on the tryouts and cuts of the girls. In some cases, a girl will get cut because the color of her skin doesn't blend well with the others, and in other cases, a girl will get cut if the has any belly fat. If her skin "jiggles" in anyway, she is automatically cut because it is "unattractive" and "not appealing to the eye". It bother's me so much when a girl will get cut because she has natural belly fat, or leg fat, or arm fat. It's not unattractive, it's natural. Some of the girls will actually starve themselves, eat as little as possible, or even not eat at all and try to survive on just protein shakes and cleansing juices.
Victoria Secret is the same way. If your body isn't "fit and perfect" enough, they will not bring you on the be a model for them, especially not an Angel. A Victoria Secret Angel has to have a flat stomach, preferably a gap between your thighs, and the ability to show off the latest lingerie.
Anyways, those are my thoughts on the body standards of well known models and females. i don't think your beauty is based on the amount of body fat or whether or not your thighs touch.
