Today people mostly think that they are cool if they don't care about what their body is like. So I think this new kind of bullying thin people around comes from that. Maybe I am wrong but whysoever this caught on, it isnt really healthy.
It's probably mostly jealousy, to be honest. Or a real dislike of thin people. It's not unknown for individuals to try and outcast things not relevant to their interests on the internet by leaving stupid comments. The amount of flaming that happens in Anthro DDs sometimes, for example, just because people hate 'furries'- yeeesh.
But probably mostly jealousy from them getting a DD.
lol, possible, you do often see people commenting idiotically on DDs more often. But they do so too on non DD model pics btw. I think we are just discussing idioticness of others, hmmm. Not really a healthy behavior on our part
usually the reason behind is that those who are not perfect are bullied and they just end up hurting themselves in order to avoid that, so its not really in any way healthy to bully those who are already suffering from those diseases. Also, I know countless women and men who eat fine but are just super slim. It isnt going to make things better by commenting shit on photos of people who are slim without knowing if they do starve themselves or just are that way naturally. Even if they do, its not anyone's business to bully them around telling them how skinny they are. if one can't be of help then they just shouldn't pose problems for others either
still power of media is greatly underestimated and in my opinion itīs simply dangerous to sort out the thinnest and slimmest women (be it because they simply are that way or because they do actually try everything to be so) for fashion fotography.
the point should still be made. not to bully a model, but to point out, that the depicted figure is actually only one of many body types. because the varyety is simply missing and majority of people theoretically know, but are still unaware of that fact subconsiously. people need proof that theyīre still beautiful if they donīt look like kate moss. or any 16 year old H&M model.
it is also my opinion that fotographers, or really artists of any kind, should think about their work and about the responsibility that comes with it.
itīs a very difficult topic and iīm not a friend of pannickingly pointing a finger because i see a model that is slimmer than me.
I don't think its right to impose moral restrictions on artists and art. Isn't that what most extremist religious outfits do? Most kids who end up starving themselves do so because they are being bullied by people and not because they saw a thin model on someone's artwork.
Although I do understand what you are trying to say but it just isn't the solution, its almost at par with censorship. Also it goes without saying that censoring something because society sees it as having an adverse affect just almost always ends up working in negative way.
