Body image concerns are prevalent among girls as young as 3 and one study found that 55% of 7- to 12-year-old girls said they wanted to be thinner. Body image issues can contribute to the development of unhealthy weight-loss practices, disordered eating and eating disorders. Eating disorders and disordered eating are dangerous and can be deadly. Millions suffer from eating disorders in the United States including over 180,000 in the state of Minnesota alone. Asking young women to post their picture and then giving others the ability to comment them is demeaning to women and it is potentially harmful and this should cease immediately (especially given the recent suicide of an 11 year old girl who had been teased for being "fat")
KDWB should have more sense than asking women to post pictures of themselves followed by asking viewers to comment on whether or not the women "should" or "should not" wear a bikini.
ALL WOMEN are worthy of wearing a bikini --race, age, size, weight, shape, fat-content, fitness level, nor what others 'think' of what they 'look like' in a bikini should not determine who wears a bikini. All bodies are worthy of wearing what they feel comfortable wearing.
