"This I suppose is what happens when you start not only enlisting women in the military, but drafting them and teaching them to use Uzis. Israel is looking to ban the use of anorexic fashion models," writes Amanda Marcotte.
"No wonder there are so many people worried about opening military jobs up to women--they are just trying to help save [conservative fat-phobic columnist] Richard Roeper from the curse of impotence brought on by the sight of women with curves on their body. But Israel is a heartless country, of course, and they don't care if Roeper never gets an erection again. For some unfathomable reason, they seem to think that eating disorders are a worse problem."
"There's a lot of reasons that women and girls develop eating disorders, but the constant barrage of images of impossibly thin women cannot be dismissed as a huge part of the problem." (Pandagon)
