Male shop window mannequins have come under fire for being less thin than their female counterparts.
A ‘gender disparity’ was found because while 100 per cent of all female mannequins ‘tested’ were found to be underweight, this was the case with only 8 per cent of male mannequins. Damn those fake plastic men.
The academic in charge of this survey insisted that “as a society we should be taking measures to stop this type of reinforcement”, which is apparently making young girls across the country hate themselves and want to be thin.
Whatever happened to sensible parents advising their children on how to eat properly?
