    Some people are NATURALLY underweight, like myself. If I wanted to model, I shouldn't be denied work because of my weight. That is discriminatory and wrong.


    Waifs make me hot.
    Dying for fashion??? You know there are many who think it is a fair trade.


    I think it's a great idea. Being in the medical field BMI is based on a lot of things in the health field, ht and wt, one if the first questions with a medical exam, and should be considered greatly, show the model how she really is flares and all cause we all have them, and parents need to get involved from the start to teach their kids about being healthy the right way, and what they see in the magazines is not a real woman which is so sad, as a model I wouldn't feel good about myself if my who picture was photoshop.


    Why is this considered a bad thing by some people? I think it's an amazing idea.
