I see that Madrid fashion week, one of Spain's most prestigious shows, is banning underweight models on the basis of their body mass index (BMI)! UN health experts recommend a BMI of between 18.5 and about 25, and some models may fall well below the minimum. The Spanish Association of Fashion Designers has decided to ban models who have a BMI of less than 18.
Three thoughts here;
1. I have no interest in "fashion shows" but I don't like the waif-like females that sashay up and down the catwalk and the impression they create in young minds.
2. Is this not "size-ist"? Poor waifs.
3. A lot of people feel that the BMI is not a great measurement to go on.
Still, once Spain becomes part of the Caliphate the burqa's should solve all BMI issues.
