  •  Interesting diary (4+ / 0-)

    In New York recently, we were riding the subway and there was a young lady, who looked to be about 18 or so with a "Ford Modeling" binder.  She looked both underfed and extremely bummed out.  I'm guessing that she didn't get the job she probably was coming from an "audition" for.

    I wondered how I'd feel if she were my daughter and trying to make it in a profession that literally "eats it young", chewing them up and spitting them out when they no longer meet the "standards" of whatever beauty is today.

    Kudos to the folks who are trying to make the profession more equitable and less about taking advantage of vulnerable young women (and men).
