There has been a debate going on in the world about whether we should ban skinny models from the runway. Models that are under a size six are no longer allowed to walk down the runway in Birmingham, England. People in Birmingham feel that models that are too skinny aren’t very good role models for kids…especially girls.
In fact, this issue has been recently discussed by two of our fellow Blurbers. DJ Cash Money said that banning underweight models is wrong because models should be able to look however they want to. The Hippo Lord said that skinny models should be banned because it is very unhealthy to be so underweight.
Do you think underweight models should be able to model? Is it okay for the government to choose how you look? Should skinny models be banned, or should they be able to strut their stuff however they please?
Here’s what we think:
