I stayed away from putting my argument forward about this debate because i really don't know what happens behind the scenes in the modeling world. But after seeing pictures of models posted on a particular fashion and model forum, i was shocked to see how many girls were obsessed with super-skinny models.
The site I am talking about is a very popular one in which official top model images can be found. However, the girls and guys that frequent this particular site have started a new thread that worships super skinny models. They come together to post picture not of their favourite fashion models, but to compete to find pictures of excruciatingly thin models, some almost on the verge of saying "hi" to a brand new coffin.
A member would post a picture and fanatic members comment on how much they adore the model's arms, bones, elbows and yes their bony knee's as well. Many of the model's posted on this site are unknown models, however some familiar faces did pop up which does reflect negatively on the modelling and fashion industry and the power they have. Many regard these model's as "Thinspiration" and now the obsession with thinness has gone too far.
