it’s time to take a stand.

MTV is casting for a new show. they are casting what they perceieve to be overweight BUT beautiful girls who they will put through extreme dieting & exercise so they can obtain a model body & make their dreams come true. “Women come in all shapes and sizes, but models don’t.” excuse me mtv?

the girls they are searching for:
-weighs 130-190
-is 5’9″-6′ tall

even a girl who stands at 5’9″ & weighs 168 still falls into a healthy BMI. that’s the shortest they’re asking for & the mid. weight they’re asking for. a girl who stands their tallest at 6″ can weigh just about up to 190 & still have a healthy BMI. young women already starve themselves, exercise obsessively, & take drugs to obtain the “ideal” model weight as it is portrayed by the media. we turn a blind eye. now a network is going to essentially be promoting this (sans the drugs use) & it’s okay?

it’s not okay.
get mad & take a stand

“Ask a toad what is beauty….; he will answer that it is a female with two great round eyes coming out of her little head, a large flat head, a yellow belly and a brown back.”- Voltaire

  1. Seriously?
    Like females (and males, for that matter) don’t have enough stuff to deal with.

    This is just perpetuating the belief that it’s OK for models to be unhealthy.
    I will gladly do anything I can to stop this show in its tracks.
