Why Freakishly Skinny People Are More "Aesthetically Displeasing" than Overweight People

Remember a few weeks ago, when that Marie Claire columnist had this to say about overweight people: ” I think I’d be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other … because I’d be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything. To be brutally honest, even in real life, I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room.”

I have no problem with overweight people. You know what I find “aesthetically displeasing”? Severely underweight people. They give me the fucking heebies. There is no boogeyman, no supervillain, or monster scarier to me than a freakishly skinny person. How many of you still wake up on some nights in a cold sweat because of memories of Zelda in Pet Semetary?

So, as a belated fuck you to Marie Claire, I offer up images of ten freakishly thin people (most of whom lost weight for movie roles) to demonstrate just how much more aesthetically displeasing underweight is compared to overweight. I certainly wouldn’t want to watch people this skinny kissing each other, mostly out of fear that one would swallow the other in a fit of hunger pangs.
