Are there benefits to the girls in being interesting or competing?

I don’t know.

Some of them enjoy being pretty, flirting and letting others enjoy it.  Are there benefits to intentionally competing or training?

There are young ladies in school who are overly thin and there are others who weigh 40 pounds or more than might be attractive.  Would they benefit from training to compete in a contest?  If you wish, view the photos of Kaitlyn Davidson or read her story and you let me know . . . or consider the page on anorexia.

The Bible says to let your light shine and to make use of gifts to make the world a better place. Matthew 5:16; Matthew 25:14ff; Luke 19:12ff.  The question is whether or not being pretty, flirty and attractive are a form of that.  I kind of think that they are, but I am not God.

The studies on art appreciation and mental health find that creating art is good for one’s mood.

It is estimated that currently 11% of high school students have been diagnosed with an eating disorder.

35% of “normal dieters” progress to pathological dieting. Of those, 20-25% progress to partial or full syndrome eating disorders.

Anorexia is the 3rd most common chronic illness among adolescents.

Those who train for bikini competitions tend to learn to lift weights and to have interesting curves . . .  I could be wrong, but I have doubts that bikini competitors become anorexic.  There is one story in the news of Kaitlyn Davidson who was anorexic.  She gained weight and then competed in a bikini competition.

Now, it should be admitted that some people who compete in bikini competitions and do not win become angry and frustrated. That can be a disadvantage or that can be a learning experience.

For a possible benefit, we see former anorexic Kaitlyn.
