Tyra Banks Goes Too Far

You know, I'm as upset at the media's glorification of emaciated models as anyone, and I applauded Tyra Banks' wholly genuine, non-self-righteous denunciation of the practice. I sincerely hope it leads to aging models having to eat less young girls growing up with a more positive body image.

But after seeing pictures of some of the whales Tyra cast in the new season of America's Next Top Model, I think she's gone too far.

I'm all for the "it takes all kinds" perspective on beauty, but I think I speak for everyone when I say, jeez, skip a meal, lardass. Look at these fatties. Their cellulite-covered collarbones practically scream obesity epidemic.
