From BuzzFeed, on a recent poll which found that women don’t want to look like runway models and that men don’t want to be with women who look like runway models:
Let’s say it’s true (and it could be!) that women don’t want to be runway-skinny and that men aren’t most attracted to women who are runway-skinny. So then if women don’t want to look like waifs, and if men aren’t attracted to waifs, why are runway models — and Victoria’s Secret fashion show models, I don’t care how “curvy” I’m supposed to think they are — all waifs?
Please share your contemplations in comments.
Step into Realville. Here’s a quick explanation that is lost only on those who are paid to miss it:
Clearly, the gay guys who run the fashion world are choosing curveless, geometrically angular androgynoids to model their clothes. So the next time some dude brags that he’s dating a supermodel ask him which industry — Victoria’s Secret? Playboy? SI Swimsuit Issue? He’s banging a winner — those kinds of models are chosen for their direct appeal to men or their ability to model very feminine clothing (i.e., lingerie). Milan runway? He’s banging a prepubescent boy.
The proof is in the pudding on this one, but another way to hammer home the point is to point out that male runway models are generally the types of guys that regular women
would like to be with find attractive, and also the types of guys that other guys wouldn’t mind looking like.
