Here are some quotes from the article:
France will ban excessively large fashion models and expose modeling agents and the fashion houses that hire them to possible fines and even jail, under a new law passed on Friday.
The measure is part of a campaign against obesity by President Francois Hollande's government. Lawmakers also made it illegal to condone obesity
"The activity of model is banned for any person whose Body Mass Index (BMI) is higher than levels proposed by health authorities and decreed by the ministers of health and labor," the legislation says.
The lawmaker behind the bill previously said models would have to present a medical certificate showing a BMI of no more than 29, about 86 kg (190 lb) for a height of 1.75 meters (5.7 feet), before being hired for a job and for a few weeks afterwards.
The law envisages imprisonment of up to six months and a fine of 75,000 euros ($82,000) for any agency contravening it.
A second measure means that any website inciting a reader to "seek excessive weight by encouraging over eating for a prolonged period of time, resulting in risk of mortality or damage to health" will face up to a year in prison and fines of up to 100,000 euros.
Ok, maybe I changed a couple words. Here's what it really says: Link
You need to click the link to understand what is happening. The link is an article that says ANOREXIC models are banned, but not just banned but that people can be jailed for employing them. A model has to have a medical certificate sating their BMI in order to actually model. Websites that promote anorexia could result in jail time.
All of this is now law in France. A first world, democratic nation.
All of this passed and no one really batted an eye because everyone agrees that anorexia is bad and should not be encouraged or promoted. Yet obesity is treated the opposite. It is celebrated and encouraged. I wrote the stuff above to show how messed up our world is becoming and how there are different standards for anorexia and obesity.
I'm sorry I didn't make that clearer.
Edit 2 :
The point is that a government banned the glorification and promotion of
self harm and an unhealthy lifestyle suicide. But they only banned one side of the scale.
