Fall Of The West Reason 4945966

Usually, the British lead the European faction of degrading European civilization but now it's France's turn.

"The French parliament has passed a measure that bans modeling agencies and fashion brands from employing models the government deems too thin. Now models will be required to present medical documentation of a body mass index (BMI) of at least 18, Reuters reports. (In 2009, the average French woman’s BMI was 23.2.) People who employ models who fail to meet the requirement could face six months in prison and a fine of €75,000 ($82,417).
The amendment, which passed today, is part of a larger effort to combat eating disorders in France. Health minister Marisol Touraine has said the law aims to protect not only the health of models themselves, but also that of young women who try to emulate them. Parliament passed an amendment earlier this week targeting websites that encourage “excessive thinness” and unhealthy eating restrictions."

What you gonna do? Stupid paternalists will, you know, be stupid.

Other than that.

BMI. The fact they use it only goes to show this idea will A) not work and B) lead to unintended consequences.

One may be large parts of the French fashion industry will move to Milan or some other spot in Italy. Or London.
