Are Young Models used for Bully Marketing?
A recent sourceDailymail online article called out Victoria Beckam for pushing young pretty women into skinny, near-starving girls for her modeling agency. The offended, well-known journalist was Emma Woolf who suffered through years of the eating disorder anorexia which rendered her frail and unhealthy. The beautiful writer was able to grasp happiness and regain her health, but only after a long struggle.
In the 1960s it was a shock to see a young, very skinny girl quickly becoming a worldwide modeling sensation. Everyone knew her as Twiggy. Why Twiggy became so popular had many people guessing, but the need for young girls wanting to look like her was unmistakable. It wasn't just the unfeminine clothes that became popular. Pictures of Twiggy haunted teenagers into believing her gaunt look was somehow beautiful and sexy. They wanted to exemplify that look in their own daily lives. What profitable marketers for the magazines! I do not recall hearing the term Eating Disorder prior to the popularity of Twiggy.
In the early 20th Century, Lillian Russell was a very popular actress and singer. Despite her robusty appearance, she held nothing back by proudly wearing feminine clothes -- and people loved her for it.
It had not been all that long before when papers were advertising methods for Fat Folks to reduce their weight, while the tall, lanky lady type was being touted as wealthy and honorable.
HERE IS THE HARD FACTS
Shaming someone into eating to gain, or not eating to lose weight is mistaken knowledge. It is not decided by you, and oftentimes not decided by the person that's being shamed. If you are bullying, you could be contributing to a psychological problem which stems from a physiological health problem.
Medical Reasons for Obesity
Genetics susceptibility to eating more than enough. When a cultural society changes their diet, the genes receiving the new type of food can send mixed signals to the brain.
Aggressively marked engineered junk foods. That's correct. You may be eating more of the wrong foods, but less of the healthy stuff because you are convinced through clever marketing that if it tastes good--it's good for you.
Medicine. Most people accept that some medicines cause bloating and an appearance and sense of being overweight.
Leptin is a hormone which regulates the amount of calories eaten and burned. This same hormone is responsible for carrying the fat on our bodies.
If Leptin is not carried through the bloodstream into the brain properly (a hormonal defect) the hypothalamus does not get the message that you are no longer hungry.
Science does not yet have all the answers, but a change of diet under the direction of a endocrinologist and nutritionist may be the answers. source
No amount of Shaming the Shamers will change their tactics. Those types of people have their own problems which could maybe be blamed on a physical condition too. Just never applaud or encourage the Bullies and science might change them for the better.
