Classic. I love it. Maybe we should have a drinking game: every time [other commenter] hits 50 in a thread, everyone drinks.

- Rich consumers want to spend money on the newest and "sexiest" fashions to show off their wealth and popularity.
- Fashion designers design exotic and scandalous clothing that shows off the female body, which treats the woman as another luxury good.
- Fashion agents treat models as merchandise, placing heavy demands on the models to meet the specifications of the designer.
- The models never feel good enough unless they are the thinnest, youngest, prettiest, etc.
- Many models suffer irreparable damage from feelings of inadequacy, leading to depression and sometimes suicide.
- Thinner, younger models take the place of the unstable, unreliable older models (who themselves are no older than 25).
- Rich consumers buy the latest fashion, become convinced that the newer fashion standard is even thinner than before, and pump more money into the system in the process.
Saying once [gay men] started getting heavily into fashion the model shape changed towards a male form (essentially what a [gay man] would enjoy looking at). Like what Em said.
Now I wouldn’t give a shit except for the fact that they hold up these women ... as an ideal form, knowing damn well 96% of the female population isn’t going to look like that. So women get breast implants, liposuction, nose jobs, spray tans (or skin lightener), lip filler and spend millions on diet and exercise crazes. In the end, women hate themselves and each other.

If we ignore in law the natural complementary of man and woman in creation, then the natural family is undermined. Our individual lives become artificial constructs protected by civil “rights” that destroy natural rights. Human dignity and human rights are then reduced to the whims of political majorities.Yes, because we all know that reducing human rights to the whims of political majorities would be very bad. We must follow the eternal verities, whatever they are this week.

The problem is that justifying your political and economic views by appealing to a science-fiction show set in a post-scarcity society isn't exactly the most credible argument.
