Delude yourself all you want, but 50s Hollywood stars were not 60lbs overweight.
Also, the Italian renaissance woman looks like she should be putting the lotion in the basket (or she'll get the hose again).

I do not for one minute believe that the Greeks considered women to be disfigured version of men.

Nika, I agree, there's no way 1950's Hollywood stars were overweight.

The claim about the Greeks is misleading but not entirely wrong. The Greek physician Galen thought that female sexual organs were male sexual organs that hadn’t been properly extruded from the body because women weren’t “warm” enough. In that sense women were imperfect men. But it’s not as if all Greeks thought this.

I wonder if they had a referendum about that.

Greek artists clearly didn't think that.
