Beauty is in the eye of--who, exactly?

An excellent piece here: http://ambedford.blogspot.com/2012/04/every-bodys-different.html

As I age, I find myself extremely worried about the skinny-minis I am seeing on TV, etc. Doesn't anyone notice how skeletally thin they are? How their bones show through their hide? When did BONY become beautiful? If our pets were that thin, the SPCA would be after us!
I fear we're going to be looking at generations of women who have all kind of severe health problems because they fought to stay too thin. If your body is meant to be thin, good. If it's meant to be curvy, so be it! If you need to change to be healthy, do so--but not to meet someone else's warped standards. HEALTHY is beautiful.

Good job!
