too much pressure to be thin

The pressure to be skinny and look young is overwhelming in my job. It would be nice if the camera subtracted 10 pounds rather than add them. Ok, done venting.

unfortunately it's not just in your job, it's everywhere!! as soon as we start seeing larger women in the media (without all of the photo-shop editing), we will all be better off. and i don't mean morbidly obese women, but average sized.

It's Getting Better but VERY slowly

Here in Detroit we have a very pretty local news person who is large framed, pleasantly rounded in attractive, womenly sense and she seems to be very popular. I also saw a made for TV movie that had a 20 year old, female, main character who was very typical of the real world, not the "Real World". I thought the movie was terrible but the casting risk of a hippy (not hippie) young woman was a nice surprise.

I have started using the word, "fit", as the ultimate compliment to give someone not, "thin".

I would like to see some normal size people on TV. Most men don't like really skinny woman. They like averge not to big and not to small
