Body image is constantly being debated; often by chat show hosts, talk shows amongst others who generally benefit financially from the debate. Take this piece of introspective analysis on the BBC for example, featuring a range of ‘TV personalities’.
You could cop a load of new New research from Virginia Tech (published in the journal Body Image) that looks at “the effect of protagonist body weight and body esteem on female readers’ body esteem”, or another option is to snigger these comp jobs by Planet Hiltron, whose aim it was to show us what these local celebreties might look like if they didn’t have fancy stylists, trainers, make-up artists and hairdressers at their beck and call. Nope, no mild resentment here.
