Default Unrealistic weight expectations

Does society put too much pressure on women to be extremely skinny? I think it's awful when a woman feels pressured to be so thin that you can see her ribs.

Don't get me wrong, i'm not supportive of the fat acceptance movement. If a woman wants an attractive man, she should make a reasonable effort to stay in shape herself. But i think some guys have crazy expectations for women's weight. It's sad how many women and young girls develop eating disorders to conform to these expectations. It's rather cruel of us as a society.

What does everyone think about this? Here's the chance for you ladies to sound off if you think society's expectations for weight are unreasonable.

And I am married to a beautiful woman who carries some extra weight on her frame. She pressures herself to lose weight much more so than I do. I support her efforts because it is important to her. I want her to change for herself and nobody else. If she did not want to lose weight I would be perfectly satisfied with her.

I don't know about extremely skinny, but there is an obsession with thinness. And, if you're fat, you're essentially no longer a person worthy of respect.

I would just want her to be healthy. Obesity leads to so many health problems, and costs this country a freaking fortune in medical expenses. I don't need to her to be stick thin, but I want to know that she's going to live for many many years by my side
