Society's Obsession with Thinness
This morning I was surfing the web for health and wellness information when I came across this shocking photo above. Here, a thin woman is displayed with circles drawn around her arms. At first I was confused as to why her armpits were circled. However, after I clicked on the picture, I was led to an article dedicated to ridding oneself of armpit fat.
Who is paying close attention to armpits? This was what I wondered. The woman in the picture appears to have normal looking armpits to me. I do not see anything fat about them.
So my question is, why are we as a Western society so obsessed with thinness? When did this obsession start and what can we do about changing the Western image of ideal beauty?
I am working on an article dealing with offenses.
