    I think at a young age girls are judged or teased or praised based on their weight and even though judgements may quiet as we age we know they are still there.  Society and the media have for decades convinced people skinny girls are the pretty ones.  I say all girls are beautiful in a uniquely different way.
    I hate this stigma.

    It's usually psychological and can be a dangerous thing, because some women try to live up to some standard that they never see themselves reaching. It's important for women like that to gain confidence in themselves and stop feeling shame about their appearance.

    I think it is a form of a phobia brought on by our society and the way we have taught young girls esp. that if they are carrying any body fat they are not attractive.

    Because they allow the images shown to us via Hollywood to shape their minds of what's "the perfect size" and the reality of this is a lot of Hollywood starlets are walking skeletons.
