It's called working out, I do!!!- would be heavy; if I didn't---no science here,, eat healthy, work out, your Good!!!
Wrong. No need to work out or even eat healthy to be in shape. Especially for a woman who can afford to be a few kilos overweight and still have a good looking body. You can workout daily and still be fat. There are millions just like that. But there are NONE who eat a normal or small amount of food who are fat!

Just EAT LESS!

Us superior men who you're calling trolls are commenting on fat women at work. We are writing about the topic! This is what it's about! How are we "damaging another thread" when we are discussing the topic?!
YOU on the other hand are here writing off-topic crap and calling people names and starting off-topic arguments.

YOU are the troll you fat bushpig. Not us!
So stop trolling and posting nonsense in this thread you fat stupid cow.

MEN > women
This is really a good point you make!

<quoted text>I don't dispute this happens. I've seen it first hand. But as I mentioned before it really depends on the sector. If you look at waitresses, corporate secretaries and checkout girls there is a high percentage of younger slim attractive girls simply because the management deem presentation (or as they see it; window dressing) is half the requirement of the job. I knew a guy who ran a subway in Dandenong who found that when he switched his two male staff to two hot young girls he would get a high number of return clients who were males such as tradies.
There are tons of hot bar staff in Vegas, and I talking to one that said they are hired to be a certain size and if they gain weight they can be fired. It's in their contract.
Even the older waitresses were very tidy!

'The fashion idustry is dominated by the gay sector who go after prepubescent girls to fill their little boy fantasies'- I had no idea about that.
Gay men dominate modeling so much so that because it required predominantly female models they forced them to be smaller and smaller...if you look back a year or so when the shit hit the fan about hiring 12 and 14year olds you will see what I mean.....now the disease has hit the male models...they are getting thinner and thinner to the point of looking more like a gay mans fantasy.....it is scary and ex female models have been fighting back to put real size women on the catwalk.....It is also a fact that it is cheaper to dress a size 000 than a size ten and most want the tiniest of models to keep the prices down....there was a furore in the media about a female model who was a size 8 or ten told to slim down....it is the worst industry for forcing females in particular to look thinner and thinner and now men are starting to get anorexia and bullemia....because of their idea of perfection...it is sickening.

As for the modelling industry, it is sad that it is able to influence girls or boys to harm their bodies in order to achieve a 'size 0'.
The girl of 12 who was modelling women's fashions - her mother was supporting her to do this - why would a mother do that?

There are many industries out there which service our obsession with appearance - I don't believe that men are entirely responsible for this - it is a social ill when it goes this wrong.

Look at this fat sh*t troll ^^ spamming her crap about anorexic models.
Wow.. you are so clever. Amazing news! I never knew that *rolls eyes*.

The cow read my post last week about gay men and stupid women being responsible for anorexic runway models which woke her up and now she's acting like she discovered it herself lol.
It's fricken ancient news you fat turd. The only people who don't know that are clueless old women like sairla.

The norm these days in America is for people to be unnaturally muscular (including women) and use steroids and hgh. If I didn't tell you that you would've realised it in about 12 years lol.
Here's one small example of that ^ http://www.getbig.com/boards/index.php...

God I'm so sick of women writing crap online thinking they're smart.

The majority of companies be they fashion or beauty are run predominantly by men....they use the names of female stars on their parfumery and on they beauty product but they are still owned and run by men...as are the magazines and the media.....I could count on one hand the ammount of beauty companies where women set the pace.....men are entirely responsible...be it for womens undergarments or shoes or clothes....they dominate those industries. the products we have in our homes that "we need" the toys we give our children "they need" the mobile phone industry....Car manufacturers and sale....everyone needs a new car....they whole retail industry is dominated by MEN, and that's a fact....so our body image is what men are telling us through fashion media what we should look like.....MEN, MEN, MEN!...This is not sexism Saila, it is A pure and unaduterated fact, the sooner women wake up to it the faster we will swing the pendalum in our favour.

"now men are starting to get anorexia and bullemia....because of their idea of perfection...it is sickening."

According to who? You? Where are these anorexic male models? Here's what came up when I looked up "Male supermodels" on google images: http://www.google.com.au/search...
Where are the anorexic men? I just see ripped and muscular men.

Oh yeah, and don't act like Men are responsible for these anorexic models too. The main cause is stupid women. You are the idiots obssessed with being "skinny".. not men.
Men have NEVER liked skinny women. NEVER.

And before you open your mouth about men not liking skinny women you fat turd: Skinny means bony. NOT "normal sized".

Btw, I just looked at one of your links for a laugh.. and AGAIN you show a stupid article written by a stupid woman! I closed the page after I read: "Female models are getting thinner and it's not because they are eating less".
My god the stupidity.

Just SHUT UP you stupid cow!

What an idiot this fat Ahomana turd is.
Yeah,(ALL) men are pressuring women to be anorexic LOL. We want to see bony women LOL. This turns us on LOL.
F*cking idiot.

They should ban ALL female-targeted magazines, tv shows and runway modelling shows.. and of course women writing online.
That will put an end to anorexic females.

Women are the ones who want to be skinny, wear ridiculous make-up which makes them look like clowns, have long ugly nails and earings which stretches their ears, have ugly coloured and styled hair, wear ugly wedding dresses which cost a fortune, wear stupid uncomfortable shoes....

All men want is a healthy attractive woman in tight booty shorts and a cheap crop-top.
