I'll answer that question for Sonya because I recently found myself in a foot-in-mouth situation. One of my girl friends is extremely thin. Size
zero, barely fills an A-cup, and has no hips or butt to speak of. I was on some sort of tirade about stick thin women who deprive themselves and end
up having the bodies of 14 year old boys and how men can not possibly find that attractive and how most men want 'REAL' women with female bodies
that include breasts and hips. Anyways, I wasn't thinking and it ended up really hurting her feelings. She has a body like that naturally and it made
her feel awful like men didn't find her attractive due to her naturally lean body. So, yes, thin women can have issues. I was a late bloomer as well
and was a total bean pole until around the age of 18 so I remember what it was like to see the shapely curvaceous women and wanting so badly to be
Edited to add after seeing Phoenix's comment: He is absolutely right. Fat women can be downright cruel to thin women and treat them like total
garbage. When I was in high school there was a girl who had to have been around 250 lbs. She was a complete arse to me and my girlfriends no matter
how nice we tried to be to her or reach out to her. We would constantly hear her talking bad about us and our bodies. So, yes, that can be hurtful as

I made a rant similar
to this topic in another thread. My post is
. Although, instead of limiting it to the porn industry, I talked about
airbrushed models in general and various marketing techniques that objectify women and program us with unobtainable goals. In a Cindy Crawford
interview, she said something really cute but it was so true: "Cindy Crawford? I would love to look like Cindy Crawford! I am
and don't even look like Cindy Crawford!" She was talking about how much they 'fix' and airbrush her in her modeling career and how it gives a
false impression because Cindy Crawford doesn't even look like Cindy Crawford in real life.
So I guess we can widen the scope to not only the porn industry but the way women are marketed in general.

I'm not going to get too much into the boob job debate and although I can agree with you in many cases, it simply isn't true entirely. It can depend
on what material the implant consists of, in what country the surgery is performed, if the implant is inserted behind or in front of the muscle, and
the increase in size a woman has from her original size. For instance, an A cup going from a DD cup will be hard as a rock but a C cup going to a D
cup is very subtle and the softness and flexibility will stay in tact.
Just an FYI. Many factors go into implants and not all augmentations result in hard as a rock, rippled, stretched, frozen, cantaloupe halves being
attached to a woman's chest. You would be surprised at how well breast enhancement surgery can turn out.
