She might be a tad on the eccentric side, but if she wants to hang out on the beach in a bikini, it's not like more sun exposure is going to make her skin get any worse.
Well, gonna disagree w/ you on that. Dignity is dignity and an older woman who is trying to display herself like a sex object is undignified and pitiful, IMHO. That is according to my value system and if anyone has a different value system and disagrees - fine with me. I am talking about what I consider proper and in good taste. And I maintain that I only hope God allows me my mental facilities so I never make a fool outta myself in public.

That picture is wrong on so many levels. And I can't wait to pass it around.

The "sex object" bit is assumption on your part. For all we know, the photo is from Brazil, where wearing minimal amounts to the beach is standard practice for young and old, thin and otherwise, and raises no comment.

Perhaps the lady in the pic, like me is unble to gain weight. Ever think of that? Everyone who has joked about and made snide remarks about this lady and for that matter anyone based on their looks should go-right now and take a good long look in your mirrors.
I am so sorry you are that sensitive. It must be rough on you. The world can be a harsh place. It isn't healthy to be bony or anorexic or obese or overweight but many are. Is that better than skinny? She is what she is.

It's not about the weight for me...it's about the scary implants. In the best of times, implants look fake and wierd. In the worst of time (like this picture!) they look frightening. Just my .o2. If she's happy, more power to her.

I'm not at all convinced somebody didn't put one of those Peruvian ice Mummies in a thong and prop it up on a beach someplace.
