    I've been reading along trying to decide where I stand. The thing is, I really struggle to not feel judgemental towards models in general (not all, but as a group). I'm sure there are lots of models who are intelligent, lovely people. It's just so difficult to see past the obsession with physical appearance, vanity, strutting around in their underwear and using their bodies to sell products - & it's always the same body type. I dont know, I just have a fundamental issue with modelling. I know it's a career that dome aspire to, & I will support my daughters in whatever path they choose - but if it was to be a model, especially something like a victoria secret model, I would feel so disappointed. We are more than just our bodies, & it's really hard to see past that when models seem to obsess about their appearance. PP mentioned Bec Judd is a speechie too? I wonder how much of her instagram account is her posting quotes about speech and early childhood, & how much is her posing half naked in ridiculous positions. I think I dont have a problrm with a bit of makeuo and caring about our appearance. It's the obsession with appearance, when it becomes the whole sum of our human worth, - that's when its a problem.

    How are females supposed to stand up to the likes of trump, demand to be judged on their brains and not their boobs when the likes of Judd are out there parading themselves and others products for cash.
    In all honesty though VP, women just can't win. If they are like Bec Judd they don't get respect from one group of people and if they are like Hillary Clinton, they don't get respect from another. Hillary doesn't deserve respect because she shouts, or doesn't smile enough, or took her cheating husband back. Bec doesn't deserve respect because she's thin and takes selfies. Somebody like Trump will never respect either of them and they both deserve respect.

    I agree about trump being a **** and both women deserving respect. I just think one (Hillary) makes the path easier for other women while the other (Judd) makes it more difficult.

    the question is why are we looking for respect from bozos like trump anyway? he'll never take a woman seriously because he's seriously flawed. it's not a reflection of the woman, it's a reflection of a man with a flawed character. a decent bloke would respect both women.

    I don't think any of her account is her posing half naked in a ridiculous position...

    Looking at her Instagram she supports a gym wear brand (so looking after your body) that is donating 50% of sales to Movember. Better than the piddly $1 per Big Mac on McHappy Day.

    This is why I don't mind her, she does care about more than just herself and her looks.

    Look there are plenty of people in the world I would think the same about as what you are saying VP, she is just not one of them, and trust me I surprise myself that I feel that way.

    I bet if bec wasn't stick thin people would say she's a better role model. I think a lot of people want to discredit her because she's so (naturally I may add) thin. people look at her and assume she spends all her time maintaining this stick insect physique. hell maybe she does but I believe that's her natural body shape.
    I completely agree that the attitude towards her would be completely different if she had a little more 'meat' on her and I also agree that she's like that naturally. I have a few friends built like that and besides doing Pilates a couple times a week they are (unfortunately for those of us who struggle) not doing much else to maintain it. ...

    I don't think she's bad. She may in fact be at the upper end of the socially conscious model scale. I just don't think she's done enough to be role model fawn-over worthy.
