The findings in these articles should hardly be so surprising. In any other era, they would have been self-evident. And yet, in the modern day, thin-supremacist brainwashing is so prevalent that these timeless truths have become "novel" and astonishing. But they only stand to reason.

The essence of all life is that it endeavours to survive--and more than that, to thrive. The artists of the past (exemplified by the Old Master paintings cited in Kaitynn's article) understood and celebrated these life-affirming tendencies, and venerated full-figured feminine beauty as being a glorious expression of the highest fulfilment of nature's will.

But modern culture, subservient as it is to artificial ideologies that contradict and stifle human essence, opposes all of this, and enforces an unnatural aesthetic that imposes the misery of starvation as a "norm" for women. This phenomenon results from an unholy alliance between materialist philosophy (socialism and so-called "social justice") and materialism itself (commercialism). Both the modern "left" (social, not fiscal) and the modern "right" (fiscal, not social) conspire to keep the androgynous standard in place, while the old aristocratic world-view, which valorized the natural mode of life, has been displaced.

A different ideology, an ideology that eschews modernism, that rejects both philosophical materialism and dissatisfaction-based consumerism, and is instead governed by an organic view of existence, is needed to overcome the malaise of modernity, and to restore the timeless ideals of the past, which were in tune with, and celebrated, human nature.
