Sex Tips, Crash Diets, Perfect Bodies - At Your Checkout Station

What would have been classified porn in my youth now appears at every major supermarket checkout station in the nation. The sex tips and the barely clad bodies are titillating and I have mixed feelings that they fill my view when I wait to pay.
But, when I scan the hallelujahs for perfect abs, perfect thighs, and diet claims that girls and women are subject to along with the perfectly thin barely clad idealized females adorning the magazines' covers I feel a social crime is being committed.
Why should all the weight conscious women of America, particularly those who have a diet related disease have to run this gauntlet?

Moreover, how did we get to the point where the idealized female form is 5'10" and weighs less than 100 pounds, stats that describe about 1/10 of 1% of the female population in the US?
