MISS ENGLAND TOLD SHE IS TOO CHUNKY
The Daily Star (UK) ^ | 29th November 2008 | Robert FiskYour

Posted on 11/29/2008 6:32:16 PM PST by llevrok

MODEL agencies are turning down sexy Miss England Laura Coleman because she is too fat.

The blonde has gone up a dress size to a perfect 10.

But Laura, who will take part in Miss World in South Africa next month, has found most agencies have a problem with her new curves.

Laura, 22, said: “I really think the curvy girl should be promoted more as a positive image in the media. But the agencies seemed to have a problem with me when I wasn’t skinny any more.”

Eating disorder specialist Emmy Gilbert added: “The fashion world endorses an ideal which can be unattainable or, if achieved, highly dangerous.”

Nope, just perfect. I guess any woman with more than 1% body fat is considered “too chunky” these days by many.

Fags at modeling agencies prefer boyish women, it’s as simple as that!

I think she’s right, she is a little too chunky, but you go ahead and hit it.

There ain’t nothin wrong with that.

Guess the ten-year-old-boy look is still popular with the Barney Frank ‘designers’.

The anorexic look just doesn't work for me. I prefer normal people.

Verdict on Miss Coleman: Not guilty!

Verdict on the pederasts who run the fashion industry: Guilty with extreme prejudice.

The gay men who run the fashion and modeling world disapprove, therefore she must immediately shrink to a size 0, with the more bones protruding, the better.

Not guilty, on the charge of being chunky.
But GUILTY, of giving the judge a chubby.

I agree; she is a very attractive young woman. Though the “I’d hit that!” comments are a bit... unrefined and show a bit of a lack of dignity (on the part of the posters in respect to the woman); I’d expect it from my fellow Enlisted, but come-on, we’re gentlemen, right?

Perhaps you should warn people the site is adult oriented.

It's a standard UK daily broadsheet sold at every news stall.

Google "Page Three girls." Those pictures are probably under every grandmothers little budige in England.

If anything, she’s too skinny for my tastes. Only a queer would consider that “chunky”.

Ah, you MUST be careful what you search for on Google Images, if you’re unfamiliar with a term, especially; saved my arse when someone suggested I search Google Images with the term “bukkake”.

Yes, I bet you didn’t find pictures of libraries or of cakes! To avoid such mistakes, one must learn specialized terminology at its sources first!

Well, newstalls aren’t automatically decent, as I found out in San Francisco many years ago. (I am admittedly sheltered—by design.) That will teach me to not be curious about gossip-type articles. ;o)
