171 pounds, a pear-shaped
body and a taste for
beefsteak: Meet Elsie Scheel,
the Cornell student declared
1912´s perfect woman

Daily Mail (UK), by Tamara Abraham

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/22/2012 8:56:54 AM

Today´s perfect woman might closely resemble a Victoria´s Secret model. But 100 years ago, the female physical ideal was very different. A series of articles in 1912 and early 1913 saw Brooklyn-born Cornell student Elsie Scheel, 24, hailed ´the most nearly perfect physical specimen of womanhood´. The 24-year-old, who was selected by university medical examiner Dr Esther Parker from a group of over 400 women, was described by the New York Times as ´a light-haired, blue-eyed girl whose very presence bespeaks perfect health.´

If I could only grow 6 inches taller, I´d be perfect !
In today´s world, there is far too much emphasis on appearance, and almost none on intelligence and goodness.
I only looked at tall men, and married one and suffered for 28 years. I finally woke up and divorced him. I was asked out on a date by a short man, who turned out to be THE last perfect man on earth and we had a blissful happy marriage for 24 years, until his death last year. His sense of honor and decency, and respect for me and his warmth and love will sustain me to the end of my days.

It used to be that men had an instinct for preferring females that appeared to 1. be able to deliver without much trouble (ample hips), 2. could survive long periods of stress (extra fat), and 3. would be able to nurse a child adequately (breast size).
I´m not sure what their instinct is for now. Apparently,it´s for females who will 1. never have enough of anything, 2. will make endless demands, 3. always be somewhere or going somewhere and getting ready to go somewhere and 4.will always decide when it´s convenient enough so a guy can relieve himself of the 50,000 sperm he creates every day.

Elsie Scheel was very, very attractive to most men in 1912 ... she would also have been attractive to most men for all the eons men have existed before that!

There´s a good reason for that. Healthy body fat is essential for healthy pregnancies, and perpetuating humankind.

It is only in the last few decades, when the tastes of homosexual men began to dominate our culture, that rail-thin women became the ideal body type.

This is how we get sentiments like those expressed by #2 (who is disgusted by "fat on a woman").

Decades of propaganda from Madison Avenue and Hollywood have convinced even heterosexual men that a normal, healthy woman is unattractive.

Seems fairly heavy to me. Personally, I know I look and feel better at a smaller weight. Of course, a size 12/14 in 1912 is probably a size 8 by today´s standards. Vanity sizing throws a a major kink in this article. And #7, breast size has absolutely no bearing on successful breastfeeding.

If we completely ignore personality, intellect, sense of humor, adventure and character, and focus only on looks, I am partial to the taller, thinner girls.
Luckily for me, I don´t ignore the aforementioned qualities.
I don´t want to perpetuate humankind. I just want to stay in practice.

FTA: "She had ´no liking for candy and did not have a taste for ´delicacies´, and - quite remarkably - had ´never taken a drink of tea or coffee in her life.´ The result? ´She has never been ill and doesn´t know what fear is´ - indeed, she believes women would be happier if they ´got over the fear of things´."

Well, now, I think there is quite a bit of wisdom there. It sounds like she had a very healthy approach to life and living (unlike many today). Perhaps Nanny Bloomberg could learn a thing or two from her

Perfection,as a human ideal, has no foundation in reality. There are as many perfect people as there are people in the world. If you like starving yourself perpetually so you can have a body that other believe is ideal, then you have achieved your level of perfection. If you don´t give a rip what other people think about your body, love eating Philly cheese steaks every day, twice a day- that´s your level of perfection. Everything else is just mental metaphysics.

The current BMI formula is totally pointless since it can´t distinguish between weight from muscle and weight from fat. Think Bruce Willis in "Die Hard", Stallone in "First Blood", Schwarzenegger in anything, all would be deemed obese using this formula.
Regarding Miss Scheel´s curves, she is not fat. We´ve just been so brain-washed by the sight of walking skeletons for models that it seems "normal". The body type of the average Victoria Secret model applies to about 5% of the female population, I think. I doubt that they are much healthier than the rest of us, including us "pears"; the forgotten women of fashion.

Wow... I´m 5´7" and 150 and I am a healthy girl as momma use to say. Tack on 20 lbs on my frame and I would be fat as mud so goes to show how frame, musculature, and body shape make a huge difference. I wonder if she has more muscle as muscle weighs more than fat but it also burns more calories and is much healthier.

As to attraction, sorry folks, it´s biologically hardwired. You are attracted to who you are attracted to and it has nothing to do with personality or sense of humor or if someone is a "nice person." Those are nice accessories and make for happy beta thoughts but in the end, that is all they are. Suck down that red pill guys and gals, it´s for your own good.

The people who promote the stick-thin female ideal of today are gay men who work in the fashion industry along with their female enablers. Their aim is to de-feminize the female form by reducing it to a boy-like appearance.

The reason they do this is simple: to reduce the difference between the genders. Liberals work on the basis that there must not be any difference between men and women. The reason that liberals choose women as the moveable object in this culture war is because women are highly impressionable when it comes to appearance. Remember that women are sellers by nature, which means they use their appearance to sell themselves to men.

If Elsie Scheel was the ideal a hundred years ago, and a stick-thin model is the ideal today, one shudders as to what might be the case in a hundred years from now. Slowly, we are heading for complete de-humanization.

Texas church creates 17,000-square-

A church in Grapevine, Texas, is getting into the Easter spirit this week by creating a giant chalk-portrait of Jesus Christ in their parking lot. Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston. According to church spokesman Andy Boyd, the 17,000-square-foot drawing of the face of Jesus took 700 volunteers over 9,100 man-hours to create. They also used 6,700 individual pieces of chalk and 125

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
