Here are some Content Posted in that articles
“Those muscular legs would look more at home at the wrestling ring!” it reads on the subject of Britney Spears’ limbs.
“This Oscar winner is seen as the epitome of style and grace,” it exclaims in regards to Angelina Jolie. “But her skinny arms and legs with bulging elbows and knees defy her style diva image. Her knees, in particular, could surely use some meat.”
She goes onto describe Katie Holmes as the “Cute and pretty” ex-wife of Tom Cruise, who “may be skinny on top, but has rather thick legs with muscular calves.”
And then there are the “Bolly Paradoxes”. Like former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who “has legs that look better when covered“. And actress Aditi Rao Hydari, who is “pretty” but “clearly not comfortable with her wobbly knees“.
Dia Mirza: This dazzling beauty has skinny legs and sharp, pointy knees.
Bhumika Chawla: Those legs don’t look like they belong to a movie star.
Louise Court, Editor-in-Chief of British women’s magazine Cosmopolitan, was horrified by the piece.
“This Times of India article actually made my jaw drop – which I should probably add, in the spirit of things, could do with more definition and was cushioned as it hit the desk by a bit of a double chin,” she tells The Independent.co.uk website.
“It is like an article from Viz. Women’s bodies are not fair game. Creating the ideal of a ‘perfect’ image that women should look like is vile to the celebrities criticised but also heaps inferred pressure and criticism on the rest of womankind.
“I was infuriated by it – but women struggling with their body image are made even more vulnerable.
“This article is just mean and pointless. We should be focusing on the talent of the women on that list – not what they look like. Angelina Jolie is an Oscar winner and global humanitarian. Sarah Jessica Parker is an Emmy award winning actress and producer and fashion designer. Do you want me to go on? The conversation should be about their achievements.”
The Times of India has finally pulled off the demeaning article Hot babes with ugly legs.
We think this report not only is ridiculous in its ideology but also stereotypes what we believe are images and body types that seem regressive in every possible way. Do you agree with The Times of India’s views Please comment Below also Subscribe to our Website to Stay Updated !!
