How we Americans worship dieting, trimming down, becoming sleek and streamlined has become almost a fetish. An addiction.
It’s now a passion pounding away at our stomachs whereas once upon a time it was sexy to be full figured.
Didn’t artists in the renaissance see curvaceously abundant bodies as beautiful?
Fatness was once thought to represent fertility, wealth, and beauty, but is now associated with ugliness and undesirability.
The famous Venus of Willendorf sculpture in Germany is thought to be a fertility goddess, an inspiration for expectant mothers.
Worship of svelte occurred with the introduction of global media and exposure to largely Western culture, mores, and entertainment. Now, in addition to the health and physiological problems associated with fatness, there is well-documented emotional damage in older societies from the “pathologization of heaviness.”
Could it be we have overdone dieting. Is it time for Marie Osmond to put just a few pounds back on and stop exhorting us all to be lean?
To bring some balance into the picture, perhaps here should be her next TV commercial.
Hey there, skinny. Tired of being thin and boring? Missing that beer belly? That gorgeous gut that once showed you’re a bear? Those precious jowls? That sexy double chin?
