It's just that "big" or "plus-sized" models don't look big. They make average-sized people like me think "Oh. She looks like a human being, so obviously she's advertising the 'extra jumbo' pantyhose.

The girls in that picture bear about as much relation to the size of the actual average "plus-sized" American woman as this one bears to the size of the average "non-plus-sized" American woman:

We don't do that to women.

Women do that to themselves.

Why do women wear makeup and perfume?

Because they're ugly and they stink.

Newsflash: Women are insecure about their looks because it's one of the few things they can offer in the dating/marriage equation.

The problem is not the images.

This is obvious, to anyone that is ... not.

Dude, we've been forced to stare at skinny biatches our entire lives. Give us more than a year to get used to seeing women who look like us in photoshoots before saying nothing will ever make us feel good about ourselves.

That said - all the whiney biatches who let photos of others make them feel bad need to grow a pair and learn how to have a good self-esteem.

If by "plus sized models don't make women feel any better" you mean "calling normal to slightly under-average sized women 'fatties' and 'plus-sized' makes other normal women feel bad" you'd be spot on there subby.

I just saw a special on that 600 pound chick who wants to keep getting fatter.

You should have heard her...."oh, I have confidence, my stomach is sexy, other people are jerks for pointing out I'm fat".

When the reporter asked her if she wanted to little girl to be fat, "no, no way"

They're no worse than the proper tipping amount threads. Nothing like a basement-dweller to alert the Internet as to how much you should tip your escort for giving you a blumpkin.

Oh yeah, look at all the fatty-bashing going on. This thread is all about fatty-bashing and in no way has it almost completely been focused on how ridiculous it is to call women in good shape "plus sized."

Yeah, and we naturally "skinny biatches" have listened to you fatties whining at us all our lives, just because we're svelte and athletic.

That said, nobody really wants to look at either of the extremes so why don't you just shove another Twinkie in your piehole and stop whining at women like me just because I'm rockin' a 19% body fat.

Women stress themselves out over what they think men like....Until a certain age, if they are married. i hate that I write this, for the most part, a girls life is dictated over what some faceless, nameless, guy out there likes. Girls mold and change themselves to what they think guys will like because that makes them feel secure.

Sure do.

Note that many "plus size" models are built like anna nicole smith BEFORE she got big. What is a woman supposed to think?

The average woman wears a size 16. Marylin Monroe was a 12-14. If you are thinner in my part of TX, especially over 30, you are a freaking Barbie doll.

I love her each weekday, each velvety cheekday

My love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
Big game's waiting there inside her tights

Ugh. FAIL for referencing a "study by the University of Arizona" that actually took place at ASU.

I suggest we disregard the article entirely and concentrate on pictures of nicely rounded women.

Self-esteem for women is like dry ice. The shiat just disappears and evaporates on its own unless it's constantly bolstered, followed around with a noisy and expensive to operate machine. Ignore it and it'll suffocate you in a confined space.

Men, they ride a ratchet of esteem. Heck, I am still riding on some paranoid accusations that turned out to be true 20 years ago (former GF had a room-mate steal her kitten), I was right, that biatch did it. I won a bloody mary making contest... two years ago. farking AWESOME!

If I was a chick, that stuff would have long-evaporated.

Esteem and confidence in a woman, that's like the godddamn defense department sucking up money from the taxpayers. It never stops, what it creates quickly breaks, and what works for a while is used to destroy others.

pffft. It's too bad they got all the vayjay and boobies or I'd have nothing to do with them. (Moobs and brown-starfish don't count you pervs.)

NannyStatePark: Marylin Monroe was a 12-14.

Not a modern day 12-14. In modern sizes, she was typically an 8, and no more than a 10 at her heaviest.

No, it is. You take the most fat, douchiest guy and he can implant an idea into the most beautiful, humble, smartest girl and make her think otherwise.Not all girls, not farkettes, just saying alot of girls.

Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go round

Oh but I still get my pleasure
Still got my greatest treasure
Hey big woman you gonna make a big man of me
Now get this

Oh (I know) you gonna take me home tonight (please)
Oh down beside that red firelight
Oh you gonna let it all hang out
Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go round

I call bullshiat. She is ultimately responsible for her own self-esteem, and how much she lets external stimuli bother her. If she's that weak-minded, she ain't worth more than a one-nighter.
