UK’s Fabulous Mag has released the results of their “Fabulous Body Survey 2008”. And while I’ll admit it’s not the CDC, it seems to confirm what we already know: to wit, that the fashion industry and the various women’s magazine publishers are a bunch of sadistic assholes.
While the average woman is a size 16 trying to starve herself into half that, the average man’s ideal is a size 12. What does all this mean? I don’t know, but I’m going to go think about it over a full-fat latte and an apple turnover.
