    What is with this skinny epidemic. Thin people are great, but so are curvy people, athletic people, chubby people.....

    I think the times of size 0 are pretty much already gone. For women anyway the scope of beauty has become much diverse in recent years.

    Though this doesn't include the very niche market that is runway models, they're still very slim...but not anywhere near as bad as it used to be.

    Girls aspire to look at models and if you have a look at victoria's secret angels or whatever they're called, they are STICK THIN. Boys on the other hand have to build muscle because they don't want to look like girls. Men also prefer skinnier girls.

    unless you've been living under a rock there's been a huge push to more 'curvy' physiques for women, like that plus size model on sports illustrated, also fat acceptance is everywhere these days.

    Chubby isn't great and most women aren't skinny, the average BMI in the UK is 27 for men and 26.9 for women, both are pretty unacceptable.

    I thought that being fat was the new thing. Being think and sickly arose from the 60s when Twiggy was about.
    Yes, it's all stupid.

    I'd much rather look at a thin person than a chubby person though.

    Basically being healthy is the trend but fat people are hijacking it by hating on skinny people without realising they are far worse and then they call it natural and healthy.

    Social expectations/ social pressure. As long as people are healthy and happy, size shouldn't really matter.

    The worst excuse is when they say "I'm not fat, I'm average", like just because somebody is average weight/bf% that doesn't mean it's not fat, when the average person is overweight that suddenly makes it healthy? lol no

    It's not as "black and white" as you make it out to be. (re: women want skinny, men want muscly)
