You protect animals, please protect young girls too!

18-09-2009 21:26

Its time for London Fashon Week again, Its time to glorify heroin chic and the anorectic waif. Its time for young girls, perhaps your sister?, to be bombarded with this perversion of desireable images. Its time fot them to be to;ld they are not right, not beautiful, not worthy.

If the weeks runway events and coverage are insuffucient, there are year round websites devoted to this perversion. Just like there are websites devoted to the practice of some predatory males to prey on young boys.

Confronted with the immorality, the FASHONITA ELITE refuse to back down. Deadly thin will be on the catwalk yet again this year!

Young impressionable ladies ( over a million of them in Britain are already INFECTED with this socially promoted illness)) can follow on facebook and probably twitter feeds.
As the article below notes, these young children can gain "inspiration from celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton" and learn how to be part of this glamorous yet deadly lifestyle.

I'm not there. I just think some Brits should read this article and think about it and hopefully go DO Something to bring the light and some shame to this perverse event, the LONDON "FASHON" WEEK.
