knock knees: my two cents

I just don`t get it…try as I might I just don`t understand why emulating a medical condition is considered sexy/cute/attractive. Knock knees (or Genu valgum) is something of a high school girl specialty here in Japan and personally, I think its wierd. Not only does it look strange, but doing something like that when your young must really mess up your bones in the long run and lead to something like early arthritis. And the media seriously isn`t helping the problem: when you watch anything on t.v. or read anything from a book store, you end up thinking that all japanese high school girls are knock-kneed and angsty. It`s ridiculous.
