  •  She's slender (none)
    but she hardly looks unhealthy (esp. in comparison to other NYC females), much less anoerexic. These types of comments--that people are worried that she is fueling eating disorder issues--are just more cover for people to comment on her apperence. Anoerexia is a very complicated illness and it's been around since before there was even such a thing as media. There's a lot more to it than skinny models and actresses.
    •  Actually, (none)
      she may look worse in person than she does in her media appearances. Randi Rhodes has mentioned seeing her in NYC, and "everyone who knows her just wants to feed her", indicating that those around her think there may be a problem. (Randi didn't sound malicious about it, either, so it's more than just liberal spite I think.)

    •  if you don't think she looks unhealthy (none)
      in these photos, that only illustrates how bad off we as a community are about women's weight.  

      Look at her arms and legs!  She looks incredibly weak and brittle.  She has no muscle mass. If that looks okay to you, then we have real problems.
