$47,000 fine and up to 2 years in prison….
$71,000 & 3 years in the slammer….
Drug bust? Prostitution? Polygamy?
Nope, these are fines and penalties for promoting Deadly Thinness
This is the real deal girls, France, the country that defined haute couture, launched Europe’s most aggressive assualt yet on the promotion of ultra skinny body requirements so near and dear to the hearts of the Fashion Industry.
The French National Assembly approved unprecidented legislation that would make promotion of extreme dieting a crime punishable by up to 2 years in prison and fines as much as $47 grand.
Am I dreaming??!(&#*(%&#(%
“It may mean that we won’t be able to publish anything,” squealed brainwashed editor of France’s Elle Magazine Isabelle Maury. “If they decide to strictly implement it, it could mean that every fashion show and magazine will be banned or charged.”
This quote makes me sick. It is so very indicative of the warped attitude of the Fashion Industry that has been prevalent for years.
Next step…the bill heads goes to the Senate. If passed it will officially be ILLEGAL to “provoke a person to aspire to excessive thinness by encouraging prolonged food limitations.
PS Feel free to stalk the bastards at the Council of Fashion Designers of America and ask them what the hell they have been up to.
