    Strangely enough, the face they use to illustrate it isn`t especially attractive. Looks familiar though.

    when marilyn monroe sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. PRESIDENT in that nude colored spangly dress, she was approximately a size 14. today she would be considered fat.... makes you think, huh?

    In the 30`s you had popular actresses like Myrna Loy and Far Wray, who were much prettier than the ordinary face they used here.

    slut etta, that`s actually true in some sorts. She was actually a size 4 in today american standards. Just saying. She could also squeeze into a size 2.

    the only people who care about women being fat, are other women. its not mens fault, its not societies fault, its the females fault and theirs alone.

    @slutt etta:a dress that is a size 14 today would have been a size 20 in monroe`s day; Monroe would be a size 8 in today`s sizes. Now that is food for thought.

    Oh dear god the marilyn monroe thing again - face it ladies, she was not a today`s size 14. She was more of a today`s size 6 to 8. Deal with it.

    My golf shoes are made in Europe somewhere - they are a size 40 something. Her dress was probably from Paris or some sh*t.

    I`ve noticed this watching Turner Classic Movies - there definitely was a more petite/slender beauty standard back then. And I`m not just talking about the figure - if you look at the faces of the starlets they were largely thin-lipped and definitely had wider eyes/more pronounced noses. One notable exception would be Lana turner - I think she is the starlet from the era which most closely resembles a modern standard of beauty. If you think about it they were actually less objectified back then - breast implants weren`t around so a model/actresses IT factor wasn`t always about her boobs. Sometimes I`m amazed by what they placed on a pedestal back then actually.

    I care about women being fat...its unhealthy and in modern society with all the medical advances we have, I think its a bit redundant to be fat. Excessive, unnecessary if you will. Plus, some people are so fat its offensive. Ive been to the US once in my life (as a sentient human) and I saw people of unspeakable weight and it made me physically repulsed. I wouldnt wish that on anyone - but eesh, theres a point where you have to step back (to fit your image into the mirror) and say `enoughs enough`. Thats well before the point where you use mobility scooters to get around (they`re for people who are disabled you numbskulls, not for your lazy ass). Ill add, thats one of the worst things ive seen. People so fat they cant walk. GO ON A BLOODY DIET.
