Women's body types renamed after great artistsWomen's body types renamed after great artists

Traditionally, the terms pear, apple and hourglass have been used to describe a woman's body shape. But in a bid to stop a negative body image, they have been renamed after great artists. The world has gone pear-shaped, or should I say Warhol.

The only critics of women's bodies are the women themselves. I don't see this change achieving anything. It's not as if apples and pears are negative - the negativity has come from the women, and that has not changed.

I don't care if they're called after a piece of fruit - as long as they don't look like a bloody garden cane like so many so-called models.

Latest comment: The only negativity is from the women themselves. Apples and pears are not offensive where I come from. This is simply another stupid attempt at gaining more reconition for the Arts. Someday soon Americans will be starving from having all the jobs gone over seas and the government not willing to help enough, all gas and oil will be gone and no one will be able to drive their cars or work, but at least we will have ART galleries and Botanical gardens everywhere there used to be stores and job producing factories in which to look at while we are dying slowly.

You *think* about art... not lust about it. I can think of a dozen reasons this is positive and a true artistic appreciation learned from the greats is definitely educational. "Rubenesque" says much in a lovely and educated and diplomatic way. (Though, I'm not sure I want to meet a Dali-esque woman. :-)
