Nightmarish new regulations in effect for gay fashion designers in Italy: 1) no using 14-year-old girls anymore; 16+ girls only; 2) models need to provide medical evidence that they don't suffer from eating disorders; 3) fashion collections need to add larger dress sizes, and other changes proposed to redefine "feminine beauty." How in the world are the poor gay designers now going to come up with female models that resemble boys in their early adolescence? They will have to settle for a late-adolescent boyish look. Note the statement in the following report, "Calls to offices of major Italian designers seeking comment Friday evening went unanswered." The gay designers are speechless. The interesting thing will be to see how successfully the new regulations are implemented.

The January 2007 special holiday issue of Playboy magazine features Pamela Anderson on the cover. Small versions of her images in this magazine are shown below since they are of educational value when it comes to showing some deceptive techniques used to portray unfeminine women as glamorous and market them to heterosexual men.

Showcasing feminine and attractive women does a good job of educating people, especially feminists, about male heterosexual preferences. However, it is human to have shortcomings/flaws. Therefore, art depicting feminine beauty is an especially useful tool for understanding heterosexual male fantasy. An art section, primarily meant as an educational resource for feminists, has been added to the site. Feminists should go through this section and hopefully learn that blaming heteropatriarchy for the selection of skinny high-fashion models is worse than barking up the wrong tree.

This is a follow-up on an entry addressing discrimination against unattractive women, and features a paper discussing whether beauty or unattractiveness has a stronger effect on how one is judged by others with respect to how helpful one is (altruism), how smart one is (intelligence) and how likely one is to have friends and be popular (sociability). The general find, also reported earlier, is that adults and children judge not so much in terms of beauty being good but in terms of unattractiveness being bad.

Previous parts: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. This entry addresses Alessandra Ambrosio, yet again, but then I am a great fan of Alessandra and hope that she acknowledges my existence. She has twice deleted --at her fan forum -- links to pages within this site that pay a tribute to her beauty. How sad! Here is another tribute. Please Alessandra, don’t delete a link to this entry.
