Who's behind fashion anorexia?

After hearing about a Brazilian model who died of anorexia, I wondered if this wasn't a product of the industry's main players who are gay men. Is being deathly thin their idea of femininity? Its no big secret that homosexuals, part time drag queens and progays are running the fashion industry. London Fashion Week came under fire causing the British Fashion Council to cancel its opening photocall. Newspapers blamed them for exacerbating an already dire situation. [source]
"The growing trend for super-slim -- so-called "size zero" -- models in the fashion industry has whipped up a storm in the middle of the international fashion cycle. London's fashion week follows New York and comes before prestigious Milan and Paris. British newspapers and health experts have condemned London fashion bosses for failing to follow Madrid and turn away underweight models following protests that girls and young women try to copy their looks and develop eating disorders."
I find this misogynistic in a way. Are these women anything more than dress up dolls for these gay men? I still can't believe that ANTM has "Ms J" --a man-- teaching women how to walk like a woman. Unbelievable. Should gay men set the standards for what feminine beauty should look like, especially if it is only prop work to them?

Said "Ms J":"When I look at a girl, I'm looking at her for body, for movement. She can be as ugly as the bottom of my shoe, but if she can walk, and have confidence, and look good, that's all that matters for this. You can turn that ugly into beauty."

I wonder if that is somewhat autobiographical.

From what I understand this is the norm in the fashion and even pageantry industries. By the way, a friend of mine encountered "Ms J" in the Atlanta airport while waiting to check in. I won't tell you what happened, but "Ms J" needs serious help.

The drag queens and male diva coaches should share the blame for this terrible curse on these young women. To me, its just another sad reason why we should never under any circumstances approve or affirm homosexual behavior. Ana Carolina Reston is dead at 21. Just who was she trying to please?
